VWF077. She got left behind and was forgotten. While out foraging VWM082 and VWM079 disappeared and were assumed predated. The other pups survived to adulthood and became active memebers within the group. Jogu and his brother once were left behind to babysit the pups at the age of five months, but they were still pups so they quickly got bored with their new job and left in search of something more fun. Despite the fact the Whiskers were up to thirty members strong and had plenty of babysiters, but Jogu and Maladoy later became great babysitters. He babysat Flower's pups Busta, Izzy and Suggs along with Mitch and Tina Sparkle. The pups and babysitters were soon visited by evicted Tequila from the Young Ones Mob, she was really his aunt. Jogu went to go find Tequila. It is unknown if he succeesfully mated with her. Later on when he was around three years old he roved at the Commandos Mob mated with Zorilla. She gave birth to two males Benno and Cody and two females Sera and Yara. Jogu later left the Whiskers to rove and disappeared along with Flava Flav, Pozzo and Maladoy in October 2007.
