Petra(VWF082) was born on December 6, 2004 in the Whiskers Mob. Her mother was Flower and her father was Zaphod, they were the dominant pair at the time. She was born with three litter-mates, two brothers named Machu Pichu(VWM084) and Ningaloo(VWM083) and one sister named Popkat(VWF085). Petra and her sister were seperated from their brothers when the Whiskers split in January 2005. Popkat struggled to keep up with the splinter group and was lost, but the splinter group kept Petra alive. Within the month the two halves of the Whiskers reunited. Petra and her brothers survived to adulthood. Petra had a relatively uneventful life as a subordinate female. However, after her mother Flower died from a snake bite in January 2007, Petra fell pregnant for the first time, along with eight other females. Five of the females lost their litters, but Petra managed to carry hers to full-term. She gave birth with Flo and Ella to a mixed litter of eight pups on February 1, 2007. The litter included Murray, Etosha, Burdock, Amira, Chiriqui, Rufus, Squig and Rhogan Josh. Murray, Rhogan Josh, Amira and Chiriqui were later confirmed to be Petra's offspring. The parentage of the other four pups was never discovered. After Flower's death, Petra's older half-sister Rocket Dog took dominance in Whiskers and her brother Machu Pichu became the dominant male. A few months later her other brother Ningaloo left the group and became the dominant male of the Kung Fu. In November 2007 Petra was evicted along with her sisters HawkeyeCruise and Cheetara. The females were not sighted for a month and were considered Last Seen, however they reappeared in Janaury 2008 with three wild males.

The group was collared and called the Baobab Mob. Hawkeye became the dominant female while male dominance was disputed between the three wild males, Al Capone, Al Pacino and Al Catraz. Petra took a subordinate role but later fell pregnant after mating with a roving male. In July 2008 the Baobab split into two halves and Petra lost her litter. In October 2008 Petra was evicted from the group and failed to reappear. She was considered Last Seen that month.

Meerkat Manor

Petra played as herself on Meerkat Manor during the first season. She was born into a litter of four including Mary Pat(Popkat), Dudley(Machu Pichu) and Clive(Ningaloo). They were the second litter born to Flower seen on the show. The pups were all only mentioned in a few episodes, particularly during the group split seen in Divided Loyalties and The Good, The Bad, And The Desperate. During late season three, Petra helped play brief roles as pregnant Maybelline and Daisy.
