The Godmother is the twelfth episode of the second season of the hit series, Meerkat Manor.
The Whiskers, led by pregnant Flower head off foraging. The Kalahari is still lush from abundant rainfall so everyone, including the pups, eat well. Pregnant Mozart spends the day trying to avoid Flower. After a good day's hunt the Whiskers return home and Flower goes to bed early. Overnight she gives birth to three pups. The next day while out foraging Flower alarms the group to a feather belonging to a bird of prey. While the Whiskers are distracted by the fresh feather, Mozart returns home unnoticed, giving herself the opportunity to kill Flower's pups and improve the chances of her own unborn litter surviving. The family return home that afternoon and find Daisy babysitting Flower's pups, proving that Mozart did not attempt to kill them.
Four weeks pass and the desert begins to lose its lushness due to the oncoming winter. The group leaves the burrow, taking Flower's pups, Milly, Shelly and Bing, with them to experience their first time out foraging. Only Mozart stays behind, having giving birth overnight. She surfaces later and finds herself alone, so she stays to babysit her offspring. However by the end of the day Flower has led the group to a new burrow, indirectly preventing anyone from helping Mozart to raise her new pups. Back at the old den Mozart realises her family isn't coming back and is left to make a decision: stay and try to raise her pups alone or leave them to die.
