Meerkats Wiki


Cascade(VVF005) was born in the Vivian Mob on March 2, 1997. Her mother was Vivian and her father was a Drie Doring male. Her litter-mates were Splash(VVF009), Sparkle(VVF007) and two other meerkats who died as pups, VVF006 and VVF008, the rest survived to adulthood. A couple of days after she bornsnother females named Asphodel gave birth to a litter. The pups survived thei first few weeks. However the dominant male, Sparkle's father died leaving Vivian without a mate. Then, a male named Stinker came to the group and became the dominant male. Cascade stayed in the group, taking care of the pups and participating in sentry duty as a subordinate female. When she was one year old, Cascade was evicted along with Imogen, Rosemary and Sparkle.


They teamed up with two Young Ones males and formed the Nemesis Mob. The males were Durnik, VYM018(Durnik's litter-mate) and Morris. Male dominance was probably taken by Morris, considering he was the oldest male in the mob. Female dominance may have been taken by the older Sparkle or Cascade. Not long after the group was formed, wild males came and kicked out the Young Ones males. The Nemesis group headed of the KMP(Kalahari Meerkat Project) and were no longer followed after that. Two years later, on June 27, 2001, Rosemary and Imogen were seen with two Balrog rovers. The rovers soon returned to the Balrog mob; the two females tried to join as well, but were chased away and disappeared. They were last seen on the first of July, 2001. Unlike Rosemary and Imogen, Cascade never reappeared again. She was Last Seen on November 10, 1999.
