Needs some of his description cited.

- I didn't meant the PCA did poorly. I just meant he's got a bit of a strange look.--Crowpool (talk) 18:28, June 3, 2014 (UTC)
Did anyone else notice how it only says Sandstorm was his daughter?
... wasn't he Ashfur and Ferncloud's father too?
Or am I missing something... Talyn09 02:06, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
Actually, it states on his family section that Brindleface was his mate, and on page 26, Chapter 2 of Rising Storm it states: "Brindleface was lying on her side while her two pale gray kits clambered over her. "Thank StarClan for that!" she grunted as the heavier of the kits, his fur speckled with dark flecks, sprang off his mother's flank and flung himself at his sister. "These two are getting too big for the nursery." Now, Redtail was killed in the beginning of Into the Wild, and Brindleface is listed as a queen in the Allegiances. So who knows how long she's been pregnant. In Rising Storm, that first sentance was in reply to Fireheart's saying about Bluestar's holding the kit's apprentice ceremonies, so they would have been six moons old. So most likely they ARE Redtail's kits, because she was a queen before Redtail died. So sorry if that is a bit confusing though. Heh. I tried. 188.8.131.52 02:35, October 19, 2010 (UTC)
I don't think redtail is the father because his daughter was only about 9 or 10 moons. Why would he have kits nine moons apart?
In the description,it says he has feathered ears,but the charat of Redtail says otherwise,can anyone fix this? I'm not so good at art.
where does it say he has featered ears? lol just wondering. and i always thought that Whitestorm was Brindleface's mate (after Redtail died) but then Willowpelt was expecting with his kits and Ashfur and Ferncloud were already born so he would've been a major cheater-pants. idk. maybe Redtail and Brindleface were together the whole time but i am confusing myself :( yah Riverripple 22:39, November 25, 2010 (UTC)Riverripple
Feathered Ears sounds funny, but Redtail might look better with feathered ears... NinjaFrog 16:52, May 13, 2011 (UTC)NinjaFrog
Whitestorm had feathered ears. Or were they tufted?
Umm in the family tree on Redtail's page it dosen't say anything Graystripe's mate, kits or anything! Starrlingpool
i'd just like to point out that since male tortoiseshell cat can't have kits, (google it), Sandstorm shouldn't exist!184.108.40.206 19:03, December 4, 2010 (UTC)
Well, she does anyway. This belongs in the forums. BeautifulOblivion 19:36, December 4, 2010 (UTC)
Does anyone think that blossomfall got her coloring from Redtail? Because Patchpelt and Willowpelt were redtail's brother and sister and neither one of them were tortie. But Spottedleaf was and she was his brother! Redtail's grandnieces and nephews are Feathertail, Blossomfall, Briarlight, Stormfur,and Bumblestripe and out of all of them only Blossomfall is tortie, guess redtail lives on in thunderclan, just thought i'd say that and see if you guys agree with me.220.127.116.11 22:42, May 4, 2011 (UTC)Silverthistle
I agree it sounds correct.
According to the description of Redtail, he has a bushy tail. Th picture however has no bushy tail. Is someone working on this? Firestar112 16:50, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, your right I think the charart should've been done with a cat with long fur or something.
It will be fixed during Tweak Week.
Redtail is going to appear in the next Super Edition, hooray! i found out on vickys page King692 16:47, February 24, 2011 (UTC)
YAY but its uneeededRain1088 19:50, November 1, 2011 (UTC)Rain1088
WHY DOSNT HE HAVE A RED TAIL!?!?!
I think people who made it thought ginger was good enough... it really isnt.
Not from what I've learned in Biology. All male torties have an extra X chromosome, making them sterile. Shellheart 23:25, July 7, 2011 (UTC)
It's a fantasy book, not a biology lesson. Anyway, it's to late to fix and do we really care? What's important is he had a kit.
Do you have a link? Shellheart 23:28, July 7, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I'll change it to 'typically sterile' instead and remove the bit about him fathering kits. But I do recall the Erins apologizing because of his pelt color at some point. Shellheart 23:32, July 7, 2011 (UTC)
This is completely off topic, but the Erins have admitted that they don't know a thing about cat genetics, including pelt colors, eye colors, etc. If you look, there are a lot of tortoiseshell toms in the series. Which are rare, and I wouldn't think that the would be in the wild either. Dawnstreak 16:35, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
The only other one I can think of personally is Sol, and at least as far as I know he hasn't fathered any kits. I think the genetic oddity that Redtail is is worth mentioning. Shellheart 23:20, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
I'm really happy this finally got added to the trivia. The admins for some reason took this as a personal offense, and it is actually quite interesting. isn't the trivia ment to add little factlets you didn't know? :P Besides, it's more interesting than his distant Skyclan heritage.18.104.22.168 01:10, September 3, 2011 (UTC)
It isn't a genetic oddity, there is a 1 in 3000 chance of being insterile in male tortoiseshell cats, so it kind of depends on your definition of "oddity", Beware the Boss22:39, April 4, 2012 (UTC)
I read a Russian book, and, maybe there was some translation losses, but I never noticed that Redtail was tortoiseshell. In chapter IV Firepaw notices his bright-red tail, and... nothing more. What makes you think that he's just... pale-red or something? A tortoiseshell tomcat is a very strange thing, you know.
When does it say that he is Sandstorm's daughter?
Redtail needs to look more tortoiseshell torties are usually black lighter brown and ginger with brindle patternsRedfern ~May StarClan light your path~ 18:20, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
Where does it say that Sandstorm is his daughter. Did the book say it? Or did the Erin Hunters confirm it?Rainleaf of Riverclan 12:50, January 16, 2012 (UTC)Rainleaf of Riverclan
Redtail died to fast!!! Firestar could've at least met Redtail once! And then he hardly ever appears in StarClan. Wht's up with that?

It says that Redtail is part skyclan because his sister is spottedleaf, but wouldnt that make Redtail decended also because they share the same historyRainleaf of Riverclan (talk) 23:31, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
Why did the Erin Hunters make Redtail... CALICO?!? I mean, only females can be calicos? Was it just an error or did he have some sort of genetic mutation?
How do we know halftail / Sparrowpelt was his mentor. (smallearstorm)
How do you do that- I just joined last night. (smallearstorm).
Brother or sister?
It Says Leopardfoot is his brother along with Patchpelt.
Male torties CAN have babies
Can I also just point out that not all male torties are infertile? It's a very rare occurance, but they CAN be fertile. Which just makes Redtail even more precious.Hazel VonStrangle (talk) 04:47, June 24, 2017 (UTC)
