A kittypet is the Clan cats' word for housecats, that Twolegs keep and care for.[1]




Description

Kittypets are looked after and pampered by Twolegs.[2] They are plump, sometimes fat, and well-fed because Twolegs feed[3] them several times daily with dry, tasteless pellets that look like rabbit droppings and soft slop, according to Clan cats.[4] They are soft-muscled and know very little about the arts of fighting and hunting[5](with notable exceptions).[6] At a certain age, they are taken to be neutered or spayed by the veterinarian, who is otherwise known to the Clan cats as the Cutter.[7] After this visit, they usually become lazy and have no desire to do much.[8]

The life of a kittypet is scorned by Clan cats,[9] and it is against the Warrior Code for a warrior to become a kittypet.[10]

Relation to Clan cats

Clan cats consider kittypets to be living in disgrace, taking food from Twolegs and living in a false comfort beyond the reach of StarClan.[11] Kittypets are commonly considered "soft"[12] and the term "kittypet" can be used as an insult such as, "You hunt like a kittypet," or "You fight like a kittypet," meaning that they cannot hunt or fight very well.[13] Some forest cats believe that not only are kittypets inferior, they are treacherous and untrustworthy as well.[14] One example of this is Longtail's quote which was said in Forest of Secrets when he heard that Fireheart and Graystripe were bringing food to RiverClan: "Traitors! Just what I would expect from a kittypet!"[15] Most Clan cats use the familiar saying, "Once a kittypet, always a kittypet!"[16]

Many Clan-born cats do not trust cats of kittypet blood, such as Cloudtail, Firestar, Millie, Daisy, Berrynose, etc.[17]
