Thistleheart is a long-haired white she-cat.[5]

History

In the Super Edition Arc

Bramblestar's Storm

At the Gathering, Blackstar informs the cats present to remember the fallen. Thistleheart is mentioned by Blackstar as one of the WindClan cats who was killed in battle with the Dark Forest.

In the Power of Three Arc

Dark River

Along with her siblings, Sedgekit and Swallowkit, she almost causes a war between WindClan and ThunderClan over their sudden disappearance. They wander off whilst their mother, Gorsetail, leaves the nursery to stretch her legs for just a moment. Soon after they find Lionpaw and Heatherpaw's secret tunnels, they get trapped when they jump over a boulder into a small notch. They are unable to get back out into the tunnels again. Lionpaw, Heatherpaw, Hollypaw, Jaypaw, and Breezepaw go out to search for them, but when they think that they are unable to look any further, they find them. Initially, Thistlekit is unconscious because of the freezing cold, but Jaypaw revives her by rubbing warmth into her body.
The group of cats get them safely out of the tunnels and back to their mother. They make it just in time to announce that they found the kits. To cover up for Lionpaw, Hollypaw lies and says that they were on the shore near the lake.

Eclipse

Thistlekit does not formally appear in Eclipse, but is listed in the allegiances.

Sunrise

Thistlepaw does not formally appear in Sunrise, but is listed in the allegiances. She is listed as an apprentice, her mentor being Leaftail.

In the Field Guide Arc

The Ultimate Guide

Although not mentioned by name, Thistlepaw and her sisters are mentioned Heathertail's page. When three WindClan kits went missing, Onestar assumed that ThunderClan has stolen them. Heatherpaw and Lionpaw guessed that the kits went into the underground tunnels, and went looking for them with Jaypaw and Hollypaw. Torrential rain flooded the tunnels, washing all the cats out into the lake, all narrowly escaping with their lives. This is also mentioned on Rock's page.

In the Novellas

Hollyleaf's Story

Thistlepaw does not formally appear in Hollyleaf's Story, but is listed in the allegiances.

Trivia

Interesting Facts

  • Vicky thinks that Thistlepaw and Thistleheart are the same cat,[6] and Kate later confirmed so.[7]
  • When asked about Thistlepaw's status on her Facebook page, Vicky has stated that she would consult her notes for Thistlepaw's status, who would have a warrior name, and make sure she gets a mention, dead or alive, in Bramblestar's Storm.[8] Kate later reveals this has happened.[7]
  • While one of her nieces was listed as 'Ferntail' in the allegiance list preview for The Apprentice's Quest on Kate's blog,[9] no such character exists in the final printing of the book.[10]
  • Thistleheart might have felt like the odd one out, since she had long fur, as most WindClan cats probably have short fur.[11]
  • She has RiverClan blood through Beechfur.[12]

Mistakes

  • She has been described as a tom three times.[13][4][14]

Quotes

Lionpaw: "We'll hold you by your tails. We won't let go."
Thistlekit: "By our tails?"
Lionpaw: "If we hold you by your scruffs, we'll swallow too much water. You'll have to keep your head afloat by paddling with your forepaws like this."
—Lionpaw showing Thistlekit and her siblings how to swim Dark River, page 304


Hollypaw: "Do you think you can make it?"
Thistlekit: "Of course we can!"
