Running Fox is a brown she-cat with red speckles and bright yellow eyes.[4]

History

In the Power of Three Arc

Long Shadows

Running Fox is one of Owl Feather's very small kits during the time before The Ancients' long journey to the mountains.

In the Omen of the Stars Arc

Sign of the Moon

When Chasing Clouds is wounded, she and her siblings, Lapping Wave and Strong Pounce, bounce up to him and sniff Chasing Clouds curiously, but they shrink back to Owl Feather when they smell blood. Running Fox and her siblings are drawn closer to their mother when the Ancients decide to go back, but it would be harder to go back with kits to look out for. Running Fox is seen with her siblings pummeling their mothers belly trying to get milk to come, because they are hungry. Owl Feather meows sadly to them that she had no more milk for them because she hasn't had enough to eat. When the Ancients need bait to lure eagles near the cave, Owl Feather glares at Jay's Wing, telling him that he won't use her kits for bait.
Running Fox, Lapping Wave and Strong Pounce are fighting and wrestling over who'll be the eagle, and who'll attack the eagle before a hunting patrol returns to the cave.

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."
