Meerkat Manor The Story Begins (origonally titled as Flower, Queen Of Meerkats) is the Meerkat Manor movie. It followed the life of Flower from her puphood to her death, depicting her rise to fame.

Plot Line Edit

The Story opens with the birth of Flower, her sister Petal and brothers Thumper and Hazel on March 12, 2000, Their mother was Holly, the leader of the Whiskers, the family Flower was born into and her father was Argon, the dominant male of the group. The family lived in a land that was rich with life. Flower and her litter-mates were babysat by Vialli and Aphrodite, their two sisters, while the group was out foraging. In the afternoon, the fierce neighbors, the Lazuli, led by Reagan and Titus, attacked the babysitting burrow. The Whiskers returned and chased them away, saving the pups' lives. Holly then decided to move the litter to a safer place. The Whiskers crossed the Great Divide, the main road, into a strange land with no life at all. They were followed by Yossarian, a Lazuli male, who kept his distance. During the move, Petal got a little left behind and wondered into a bolt whole, followed by a Cape Cobra. She called out for help and Argon came to her resuce. But when she was remove from the burrow it was obvious that she had been fatally bitten. Flower remained by her sister's side as she passed away.

The next morning, the group were visited by Yossarian, but the gang chased him away. Time passed, and Flower grew into a mature female who reguarly babysat pups. But food became ever scarce and, one day, Holly failed to notice a bird of prey and was attacked. She was seriously wounded and died by a bolt hole. With Holly gone, Argon left the group, and chaos broke out amongst the Whiskers. While Flower nurtured the pups, other females fought for dominance. Vialli eventually won the position of dominant female, but she failed to lead the family into an attack against the Lazuli, making the subordinates lose trust in her. She tried to cement her role as leader by breeding with Yossarian, who had returned on another roving trip, though was accompanied by his brother Zaphod. Zaphod and Flower broke the Whiskers law by mating, and not soon after, Flower was pregnant.

Vialli (Zorilla)

Flower gave birth first, but while she was out foraging, Vialli killed the pups. Later, she evicted Flower. Thankfully, after giving birth to her own litter, Vialli reaccepted Flower back into the group. In desperate need of food, the Whiskers attempted to cross the Great Divide, but a car ended Vialli's life, making the group retreat (CGI effects were used for the scene, no animals were harmed).

The next day, the group encountered a Cape Cobra, which Flower took head on. Because of her bravery, the gang accepted Flower as their new leader. Zaphod finally joined the Whiskers and claimed the position of dominant male, at Flower's side, which caused Yossarian to leave in search of other females. With food consistently declining, Flower courageously led the Whiskers back to the land she was born in. They ran into the Lazuli and charged, but were intimidated and retreated. Thankfully, Yossarian reappeared and joined the Whiskers, restoring their hope. Thus, the Whiskers attacked again. The Lazuli fought hard but in the end had to flee. The Whiskers reclaimed their old territory, thanks to their "Guiding Light", Flower. She and Zaphod had many children and Yossarian was said to have found his true calling as a babysitter. It was also said that for the years to come, Flower would serve her clan in many more battles to come and that she died the way she lived; protecting her pups. At the end of the film, Flower's legacy was said to live on in her offspring (sunangles), including Tosca, Mozart, Rocket Dog, Kinkaju, Daisy, Cruise, Colombus, Einstein, Mitch and the oh so mighty Shakespeare.
