"Merry took a step into the den, her green gaze flickering from one Clan cat to another. Then she shook her head, mumbled something inaudible around the mouthful of prey, and retreated; Lionblaze heard the sound of her paw steps fading."
— Narrator describing Merry's reaction to the Clan cats in Sunrise, page 132
At the sound of barking, the cats in the barn tense up, only to relax at the entrance of Chirp and Merry. Coming in, Merry has a mouse dangling limply from her jaws, with Chirp right behind her. Recognizing the two, Hussar invites them to come meet the Clan cats. Taking a step in, Merry rests her green eyes on each of the Clan cats. She then shakes her head, murmurs something inaudible around her mouthful of prey, and retreats to somewhere else in the abandoned Twoleg den.
