'The 'Tale of Len and Squiggy (alternatively called The Tale of Ren and Stumpy) is the fifth episode of the third season of the series Meerkat Manor


Flower's latest pups, Len and Squiggy, emerge for the first time. Squiggy is shown to have been born with a deformed leg. The pups stay behind and are babysat by Sparkle while the Whiskers go foraging. That night only half of the family return to the burrow, Flower, Zaphod and the other half simply disappear. Rocket Dog takes charge of the splinter group and mates with Houdini. That night Houdini and his roving companions pay another visit to the Whiskers. The pups eventually join Rocket Dog's group out foraging. They are cared for by Daisy and Mitch but still struggle to keep up with the family. A hawk panics the group and sends them running to a bolt hole, leaving the pups on the surface. Len is then predated by the hawk, leaving his weaker brother Squiggy to survive. Far away, Flower and her half are discovered resting at a different burrow. They are oblivious to the death of Len. A week passes and an ongoing drought puts more pressure on the meerkats. Rocket Dog's half are ultimately unable to find enough food and decide to abandon Squiggy.
