Billy(VWF093) was born on August 26, 2005 in the Whiskers Mob. She had three litter-mates, Ella(VWF095), Baker(VWM096) and Miles(VWM094). Her mother was Flower and her father was Zaphod, they were the dominant couple of the Whiskers at the time. Billy and siblings all survived to adulthood. Billy avoided rovers and was never evicted during her time in the Whiskers. In January 2007, Flower sadly died from a snake bite. Rocket Dog became the new dominant female. Not long afterwards the Whiskers split up and did not reunite.


Monkulus, Flo and Billy in Aztecs

Billy was a member of the separated half, which was called the Aztecs, while all her litter-mates remained in the Whiskers. After a few months Monkulus took female dominance of the Aztecs. Many of the group's members left, leaving only Monkulus, Billy, a handful of other adult and a few pups. A Young Ones male named Homestar Runner joined the group and took dominance next to Monkulus. But a group of Whiskers roving males, called the Incas mob, joined the Aztecs and evicted Homestar Runner. In December 2007 Billy fell pregnant for the first time. She was evicted from the group along with two other pregnant females, Flo and Bananas. They were not allowed to return to the Aztecs.

Van Helsing

The three females stayed together and formed the Van Helsing mob with two wild males, Titan and Plonker. Flo and Titan took dominance, but it was Bananas who gave birth to the first surviving litter. Flo and Billy both aborted. Billy quickly got pregnant again and gave birth to her first litter of pups in April 2008. The litter included Troy, VVHM008, Kapau Kakoo, Buzz and Mr. Jacky. VVHM008 was soon lost. Bananas was Last Seen in late 2008, leaving Billy as the biggest threat to Flo's leadership. Billy was regularly evicted but continued to reproduce. In February 2009 Billy returned to the group after an eviction and gave birth to two pups. In July 2009 Billy was pregnant again, but she aborted her litter and was evicted from the group. A month later Billy returned to the group and overthrew Flo. Flo was quickly lost, but the dominant male, Titan, stayed by Billy's side. In November 2009 Billy gave birth again, this time to four pups. From then on her success continued. In 2010, Billy produced four large litters, all of which survived to adulthood. In 2011, Billy had four litters and only lost three pups. Then in January 2012, she gave birth to a single pup named Foo. She did not have another litter until later that year, in November. She gave birth to three pups, but they were all predated a month later. They were her last litter. Following this, the Kalahari Desert endured a long drought. Many long-term meerkat leaders and meerkat groups were lost within a relatively short period. The Van Helsing managed to maintain their numbers, but by the end of the drought Billy had been severely weakened. On April 18, 2013, Billy was sadly predated. She had been the Van Hesling's dominant female for three and a half years.

Meerkat Manor

On Meerkat Manor, Billy played Chutney, one of Flower's pups from season 2. She was described as being "determined to get herself into a pickle". Chutney had minor appearences during the first few episodes and was not mentioned again following the birth of Flower's next litter. Billy's sister, Ella, played Mango as a pup then Sophie in season 4, and her brothers, Baker and Miles, played Attila and Achilles in season 2. In the fourth season the brothers went by their real names. In The Next Generation, Billy played Angie in the Aztecs mob, but she went by her real name in the British version of the show.. Angie had a very brief appearence in the episode All Manor of Love, but had no further role than that.
