Home, Sweet Home

There's someone here. I can smell their scent. And it's not the scent of a friend!
—Stripey's mother smells the cheetahs

When Stripey offers Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa a place to stay in his herd, Stripey's mother is delighted to take them in and proceeds to welcome them to the herd. The three newcomers briefly join the herd, waking up at dawn every day to traipse the zebras' territory with Stripey's mother and the rest of her herd.

It's not long before trouble arises when three cheetahs target Stripey as potential prey. Stripey's mother first notices the danger when she picks up the cheetahs' scent, and her discomfort only increases when the giraffes begin to look around uneasily. When the cheetahs attack, Stripey's mother calls to her son and begins to lead the herd away. After the attack, Stripey is returned to his mother, and Simba and his friends bid the herd farewell.
