At the beginning of Childhood's End, Mozart is seen trying to win favor with Flower as she realises she has become a target for aggresion due to having pups of her own. Her pup Sophie is attacked by Flower's son Mitch, but mostly unharmed by the assault and is comforted by Tosca. The entire family then goes out foraging, including Mozart and Tosca's young pups. While the group are out foraging Flower viciously attacked Mozart and evicts her. When a storm rolls in the Whiskers seek shelter in a Lazuli burrow. But the next morning the Lazuli return. Instead of fleeing the Whiskers stand their ground and a battle breaks out. The Whiskers eventually win and claim the Lazuli territory as their own, but some meerkats are left badly wounded from the fight. The Whiskers spend the night at their won-over burrow, but remain alert due to Mozart standing alone in the distance. Flower refuses to let her rejoin the group.
