Half-Clan cats are cats who have mixed blood between two or more different affiliations.[1] Their parents can come from different Clans or one of the parents could possibly be a loner, kittypet or rogue.[2] Mixed-Clan relationships are usually forbidden by the warrior code.[3]

Description

Taking a mate from another Clan is implicitly forbidden by the first rule of the Warrior Code, which is explained in Code of the Clans.[4] Such pairings are considered a sign of disloyalty.[5]

Kits born as a result of such forbidden relationship are usually taken in by the Clan of the mother.[6] They are considered half-Clan and are looked down upon by pure-blood Clan cats as their commitment to their foster Clan can be questioned. They are also prone to be ridiculed and mocked. Sometimes they can be in danger, such as when TigerClan planned to execute its half-Clan members.[7]

Cats who have one parent from outside the Clans (e.g. a rogue, a kittypet) can also be considered half-Clan; but usually are not suspected with disloyalty, as they do not have two different Clans to feel loyalty for.[8]
