Daisy's Choice is the ninth episode of the first season of the hit television series, Meerkat Manor.
A day after the Whiskers re-united after the tragic group split, Flower is seen recieving a lot of submissive gestures from subordinate females. Zaphod also gets lots of attention from the subordinate males. Evicted female Tosca follows the group, hoping to join but without any luck. Pregnant female Daisy, who had narrowly avoided eviction herself, is seen stealing food from Mitch. Not long afterwards the group become alarmed at the presence of an unusual predator. They all mob a genet in a tree trunk until it runs away. But Daisy disappears during the drama and gives birth in a bolt hole. On the way home the Whiskers come across Daisy's den and investigate before quickly moving on. The family stay up late that night at their home burrow while Daisy remains with her pups at the bolt hole. Youssarian comes to her aid and convinces her to move the pups to the main den. Daisy shifts two pups to the main burrow but fails to return afterwards. Yossarian is eventually forced to leave the remaining pups as it's too cold and dark to stay. The next morning Daisy returns to the bolt hole to find her abandoned pups dead. She and Mozart babysit her two surviving pups while the Whiskers go out foraging. But by the afternoon it becomes apparent that Flower had abandoned the babysitters and pups by leading the Whiskers to a new sleeping den. Mozart and Daisy are forced to leave the two pups. By sundown they are reunited with the Whiskers, but Daisy's two pups have no hope of survival.
