The Dominant Meerkat PairEdit
When Young Ones founded Morgause became the dominant female with a Drie Doring male at her side. After the Drie Doring male died an Elveera male named Sprite joined Young Ones and most probably took dominance and was the father of Veda. Morgause held on to her position for 8 years until in 2004 she died. Her daughter Veda followed her as dominant female for a short period than her mother and died in 2004 in August, barely dominant for a full year. Morgause' last daughter Asterix took over as the new dominant female. A Vivian male named Alexander joined Young Ones in 2004. Asterix died in December in 2007. Lotte became the new dominant female after Asterix. Alexander was bitten by a snake but recovered and re-established dominance but was found dead on November 1,2007. After Alexander's death there was no record of a dominant male though Lotte remained dominant female until her disappearence in late 2008 along with the rest of the small group.

Main Article: Morgause Avatar
Morgause was first seen in a group named Avatar in 1994 and her birth date was January 14,1994. Morgause was born with her sister Igraine and her mother was Venus of the Avatar. During 1995 Avatar was lost and the last remaining members dispersed. Morgause and Igraine also dispersed and in 1995 around October they met up with Drie Doring males and founded Young Ones group. Morgause took dominance over Igraine. Then in 1999 Morgause evicted Igraine with other subordinate females and they founded Frisky group. Morgause was the dominant female for 8 years. Her first partner died and Sprite Elveera joined the group. Morgause son Stinker became a famous old rover and her son Jim Bob played a character in Meerkat Manor. Her other son Aragorn founded Commandos and her daughters founded Whiskers in 1998. Morgause had her last litter in December of 2003 and disappeared. Her daughter Veda took over as dominant female of Young Ones after her.
