The other day I watched another episode of Meerkat Manor. In this episode a cobra enters the Meerkat home, where Flower's just-born babies wait with their babysitters. The babies are a lost cause unless someone gets the cobra out of there. True to form, Flower enters the hole and confronts the deadly cobra. She is bitten fatally. She dies.
Meerkat Manor has been all about Flower for over a year now. She headed The Whiskers, a successful large gang, the largest in the area. She led the group clearly and fairly and therefore had a dedicated group behind her.
So when she died I just sat there with tears streaming down my face. What a season this has been so far.
