  • Soon after, he began to have feelings for Leafpaw, but could not believe that he could love another cat so soon after Feathertail.

  • He tried to surpress his feelings for her, but he was afraid if he even spoke to her they'd come spilling out.
  • He could barely believe it when Leafpool brought him a message from Feathertail, that he should stop grieving for her, and look for living cats, he wondered if this meant she approved of his love for Leafpool/
  • He explains how the night of Mudclaw's rebellion, he saved her from falling over the cliff of ThunderClan's camp, and admitted his love for her.

Major Prophecies

Bluestar Speaks: Fire Alone Can Save Our Clan

  • Bluestar recalls how Spottedleaf received this prophecy on the night of the battle over Sunningrocks
  • She was confused at its meaning, since fire is one of the most destructive forces for the Clans, how could it help them?
  • Bluestar was on a patrol near Twolegplace, and saw Rusty; she thought he was a Clan cat because of the way he composed himself, looking ready to battle
  • A ray of sunlight hit his pelt, causing it to gleam like fire, and Bluestar wondered if he was part of the Prophecy
  • She invited him to join the Clan because of this, and she turned out to be right: Firestar did save the Clan.

Firestar Speaks: Four Will Become Two, Lion and Tiger Will Meet in Battle, and Blood Will Rule the Forest

  • This prophecy came to Firestar during his leadership ceremony
  • A hill of bones and river of blood appeared, and Bluestar whispered, "Something terrible is coming, Firestar." Then he heard the prophecy, "Four will become two, Lion and Tiger will meet in battle and Blood will rule the forest."
  • He eventually interpreted it: Four Clans became two, as they joined into TigerClan and LionClan. TigerClan and LionClan met in battle, and BloodClan almost ruled the forest, until all the Clans joined together to fight them off.
  • Since Firestar was able to figure out this meaning, the Clans restored peace after the battle

Brambleclaw Speaks: Darkness, Air, Water, and Sky Will Come Together and Shake the Forest to Its Roots

  • Brambleclaw, a warrior, received this prophecy, rather than a leader or medicine cat
  • Bluestar appeared to him and told him to meet with three other cats at the full moon, and they must seek out midnight
  • He had no idea what it meant, but obeyed anyway, and ended up going on the Great Journey
  • When they reached Midnight, she told them the full prophecy: "Darkness, Air, Water, and Sky will come together, and Shake the Forest to its Roots. Nothing will be as it is now, nor as it has been before."
  • Brambleclaw explains that Darkness, Air, Water, and Sky represented the four Clans. The forest was shaken to its roots by the Twolegs, who were destroying it. And nothing would be the same, since the Clans found a new home, which was much safer from the threats of Twolegs

Leafpool Speaks: Before There Is Peace, Blood Will Spill Blood, and the Lake Will Run Red

  • This prophecy came to Leafpaw in a dream, when she first slept in ThunderClan's new camp
  • She saw starts reflected in the lake, but then the lake turned to blood, and she heard the prophecy
  • She wondered if Mudclaw's rebellion was what the prophecy referred to, but she kept hearing it after that
  • When she saw Brambleclaw and Hawkfrost visited by Tigerstar in their dreams, she knew that it would only lead to trouble, and maybe Brambleclaw was going to betray Firestar.
  • She later found out she was wrong, when Hawkfrost tried to kill Firestar instead, but Brambleclaw killed Hawkfrost. "Blood will spill Blood" meant that Brambleclaw would be forced to kill his own brother.
  • She is happy that at least now there can be peace


Medicine Cats

Other Animals


  • Russet-red fur, bushy tails, sharp teeth, and pointed noses. They look a bit like dogs.
  • Live in dens, often in sandy ground hidden by undergrowth.
  • Live alone or with their cubs.
  • Mean, suspicious, and hostile, they don't eat cats, but they will kill for pleasure and not just for prey.
  • They hunt mostly at night and have a strong and unpleasant smell.


  • Large, with short black fur and a white stripe down their long pointed muzzles.
  • Small, beady eyes, powerful shoulders, and sharp claws.
  • Live in either caves or sets, which are tunnels underground, bushes or tree roots.
  • Live alone, or with their kits and have a very distinctive smell.
  • Badgers sometimes prey on young cat kits. Can trample their victims with enormous paws or deliver a deadly bite.
  • Have tremendously powerful jaws that make it nearly impossible to escape their grip.
    • Midnight: An exceptional badger at the sun-drown-place. She has no hostility for cats. She has a special connection with StarClan and can speak both Cat and Fox. It was Midnight who passed on the message that the Clans must leave the forest.


  • Size varies from that of a kit to a pony. Fur can be long or short, white, brown, black, gray, or a mix. Can have pointy or flat noses, droopy or sharp ears. Make loud angry noises and love chasing cats.
  • Live mostly in Twoleg nests or barns. Wild dogs might sleep anywhere; one pack in recent Clan history made their home in the caves below Snakerocks.
  • Loud, fast and sharp-toothed. Many dogs seem to be devoted to their Twolegs and are seen only in Twoleg company. There is a theory that most dogs are too dim witted to be truly dangerous. Packs of dogs are always to be feared.

Birds of Prey

  • Winged predators with hooked beaks and sharp, curving talons, these include hawks, eagles, falcons, and owls.
  • Nest in hollows or branches of trees, or on the ledges of cliffs.
  • Extremely sharp vision for spotting prey from a distance. Hawks and eagles are daytime hunters; owls hunt at night. They swoop down from the sky to carry off prey, which includes kits. This was the fate of Snowkit, Speckletail's deaf son, when a hawk attacked the camp after a forest fire had burned away its protective cover. The Tribe of Rushing Water have developed clever ways to hunt these birds.


  • Four-legged farm creatures.
  • Horses are tall and swift with flowing manes and tails and giant, pounding hooves.
  • Sheep look like fluffy white clouds dotted across a green field.
  • Cows can be black or white or brown, and their hooves are to be avoided.
  • They live in large fenced fields and sometimes hay-filled Twoleg barns.
  • Mostly harmless. However, a galloping horse or stampeding herd of cows would trample a cat without even noticing.


  • Brown-furred and beady eyed rodents, with long, naked tails and sharp front teeth. Not much bigger than kits.
  • Live in garbage dumps like Carrionplace in ShadowClan territory or anywhere they can scavenge Twoleg food.
  • Live and travel in packs. Individually they pose no threat to cats, but their numbers are often overwhelming, and bites can cause infection. A single rat contaminated the whole of ShadowClan during Nightstar's brief time as leader.


  • Tall, smooth-skinned creatures with some fur on their heads. Walk on two legs.
  • Live in large, boxy nests with hard roofs and floors, often surrounded by tidy gardens and fences.
  • Also known as Nofurs and Upwalkers. Twolegs ride around in monsters and seem to like dogs. They are to be avoided if possible, as they are capable of doing something unpredictable at any moment, such as tearing down a tree, starting a fire, or locking up a cat for no reason.


This section tells some of the mythological legends of the Clans. LionClan had flowing manes, like the rays of the sun. LeopardClan were swift, and had black spots on their pelts like racing pawprints. TigerClan were flame-colored night hunters, with black stripes like shadows flickering across their fur and the darkness of night in their souls.

How LeopardClan Won The River

  • Goldenstar announces during a Gathering that a wild boar is loose in the forest.
  • Shadestar says that she knows this boar, and that they call him Rage.
    • It met a TigerClan hunting party, but escaped.
  • Fleetfoot of LeopardClan announces that she can kill it.
    • Shadestar and Goldenstar ask her to show that her deeds can match her words, to which Fleetfoot proudly reponds, "With pleasure".
  • Swiftstar says that in return LeopardClan will claim the river as their hunting grounds, which the others leaders agree with.
  • Fleetfoot fights and kills Rage, but encounters his mate Fury, who the other leaders had known about, but not told her.
    • She fights Fury for two days, drives her onto the stepping-stones, where she loses her footing and drowns.
  • Goldenstar and Shadestar are ashamed of their treachery and give LeopardClan sole hunting rights to the river forever.

How Snakes Came to the Forest

  • There once lived a LionClan warrior called Sunpelt, who went to Snakerocks to fight Mouthclaw, the giant snake who had killed many warriors.
  • Sunpelt is too quick for Mouthclaw, and she cannot fight him.
    • She tells him to spare her, in return for a wish.
  • Sunpelt wishes for her to turn into a snake the size of a cat's tail.
  • Mouthclaw shrinks into a thousand snakes, each the length of a cat's tail.
  • Sunpelt, horrified, runs back to camp, and tell Goldenstar everything.
    • Goldenstar, at first is angry, but then forgives his warrior.

How TigerClan Got Their Stripes

  • When the giant cats first walk the forest, TigerClan have no stripes, just plain gold coats, and they are jealous of the other Clans' special features.
    • This jealousy makes them bitter and so they hunt at night and keep to the shadows in the daytime.
  • Thorntooth, a TigerClan warrior is so bitter that he steals fresh kill, and later Goldenstar's daughter Petalkit.
  • Shadestar, his leader, calls a daytime Gathering, and returns Petalkit to LionClan.
  • TigerClan are banished to the shadows for one moon
    • When they arrive at the next Gathering, their pelts have been sliced through with jet black stripes, and from that day on, all TigerClan cats are born with stripes.

The Warrior Code

Welcome to the Warrior Code

    • It is revealed that Cloudberry is expecting Ryewhisker's kits.
  • RiverClan has accused WindClan of stealing fish from their territory
    • Ryewhisker states that this is untrue because WindClan has no interest in eating fish.

  • WindClan launches an attack on RiverClan after the latter accuses them of stealing fish again.
    • Ryewhisker defends Cloudberry from one of the WindClan warriors, Hawkfur, stating that he will not let his kits be killed by his own Clanmates.
    • Ryewhisker is then attacked by a RiverClan cat and dies.
  • During the full moon following the battle Duststar, leader of WindClan calls a meeting at Fourtrees and states that Ryewhisker would not have died had he not been attached to Cloudberry

      • The ThunderClan cats have driven the intruders away as there is little enough prey for themselves.
  • As the argument becomes more and more heated there is creaking noise overhead.
    • A massive tree branch crashes to ground between the ThunderClan and ShadowClan factions.
  • To the amazement of the leaders, not a single cat is injured.
  • Stonestar, a leader of WindClan, states that the tree branch is a sign from StarClan and proposes the second law of the Warrior Code, that trespassing in another Clan's territory is forbidden.
    • This is accepted by the other Clan leaders and despite an insulting remark from Brindlestar the meeting ends peacefully.

  • Both cats nearly end up drowning when they fall in
  • They are rescued by Hailstar, leader of RiverClan and his warrior Owlfur.
  • Pinestar, ThunderClan's leader, and his deputy Sunfall arrive on the scene.
  • Owlfur suggests that the two young warriors eat the fish that White-eye caught.
  • Both find that fish tastes disgusting and Pinestar reminds them that certain cats hunt certain prey for a reason.
  • Hailstar decides that nearly drowning is punishment enough for the two young cats.
    • As they return home Dappletail remarks that RiverClan can have all the fish in the world as far as she cares.

Code 3

  • The two cats manage to catch some prey but on their return they hear that Poppydawn has just died.
  • Longtail is frightened and racked with guilt but Darkstripe callously states that Poppydawn was old and that the weak cats can go if it means that the warriors survive.

  • As he carries some fresh-kill over to the pile Longtail senses Poppydawn's spirit nearby and apologizes silently but the only reply is Too late.

  • There is conflict between WindClan and ShadowClan and every cat is preparing for battle.
  • Daisytail cannot bear to watch her son, who is barely out of kittenhood, fight and possibly die in battle, so she makes a plan to prevent this from happening.
  • Some time later both the WindClan and ShadowClan cats are about to fight each other when Daisytail, her friend Hawkfoot, and a ShadowClan queen named Oakleaf step in to stop the battle.
    • The queens argue that it is wrong to have kits go into battle before they are ready.
  • Hazelstar of WindClan and Blizzardstar of ShadowClan agree to implement Daisytail's proposal, that all kits should be six moons to be made apprentices. This proposal is later included as the fifth law of the Warrior Code.

"The Smallest Warrior":

  • During the battle to drive WindClan out of the forest the young ShadowClan apprentice Badgerpaw, who is only three moons old, is mortally wounded.
    • This is because Brokenstar, ShadowClan's leader has begun his brutal practice of training kits like Badgerpaw as apprentices before they are ready.
