Stato(VWM050) was born in August 18, 2002 in the Whiskers Mob. His mother was Flower and his father was Zaphod. His two litter-mates sisters were Baddiel(VWF049) and Skinner(VWF051). Stato and his siblings were actaully the first surviving litter born to Flower and Zaphod. The pups survived their first few weeks and started foraging with the group. The Whiskers were a small group but they had a lot of adults and few young meerkats. His sister Skinner disappeared on February 22, 2003 and was assumed predated. Stato and remaining sister Baddiel survived through their first year. Most of the oldest males started to leave the group and Stato started to rove. By 2004 he was one of the oldest subordinate males within the group besides his uncles. Stato became an uncle for the first time on March 9, 2004 when his litter-mate sister Baddile gave birth to De La Soul, Arrested Development, Bad Boy Bubby and Flava Flav. Baddiel was often evicted by their mother along with Mozart. On October 10, 2004, Stato got new little nephews when Baddiel gave birth to Jogu, Maladoy and VWM082, sadly VWM082 was predated. The Whiskers split in late 2004, only seven memberes were with Flower and Zaphod. The splinter group was taken charged by his half sister Super Furry Animal and his uncle Yossarian. Baddiel was evicted at the time and joined the group ousting her sister. She took dominance of the splinter group with Yossarian. Stato was with the splinter and able to spot a ravil gang. When the Whiskers reunited. Yossarian returned to being a subordinate quietly under his brother Zaphod. Baddiel was evicted because both she and Flower were pregnant again.
