Well everyone it was well thought that the Whiskers wouldn't make it much longer. But the Whiskers aren't just surviving they are thriving. The Whiskers are approaching 20 members for the third time in their 21 years of existence. The First time the Whiskers broke 20 members is when Risca was dominant female in 2001 when 11 Vivian males joined the Whiskers. The second time was when Ella was dominant from 2008 to 2011. The third time is because of Swift bringing up successful litters of pups one after another. Only time will tell if their numbers will exceed 20 again. If things continue the way they are going the Whiskers may become the largest group in the Kalahari once again. Hang in there Whiskers you can do this. My friends and I have absolute faith in you that you will bounce back from low numbers.
