"Owl Feather's kits came bouncing up, sniffing curiously at Chasing Clouds, then shrank back close to their mother as they caught the tang of blood."
— Narrator describing the kits' reaction to Chasing Clouds' injury in Sign of the Moon, page 225

Lapping Wave is a tom[3] with an unknown description.


In the Power of Three Arc

Long Shadows

Lapping Wave does not formally appear, but he is mentioned as one of Owl Feather's and Jagged Lightning's small kits before the Ancients' journey to the mountains.

In the Omen of the Stars Arc

Sign of the Moon

He bounces up to Chasing Clouds but then shrinks back to his mother once they smell the blood on his body. He later being drawn close to his mother when the Ancients decide to go back to the the lake.
Lapping Wave tries to suckle from his emaciated mother. He begins to wail along with his siblings because she runs out of milk and they are still hungry. When Stone Song tells him of the adventure they just had, it is mentioned his and his siblings' mouths were wide open, most likely in awe. He tells his siblings, Strong Pounce and Running Fox, to attack him and pretend he is the eagle, momentarily forgetting their hunger.
He also appears when Shy Fawn is giving birth to her kits. His mother shoos him away from her and tells him and his siblings to find somewhere else to play, instead of bothering Shy Fawn during the hard ordeal of labor.

Owl Feather: "Stay back there. This isn't for kits."
Strong Pounce: "But we want to see!"
Owl Feather: "No! Go over there and play, and don't make too much noise. This is a hard time for Shy Fawn."
