Okay, so there's a lot of people who dislike permenant queens, and others who are okay with them. I wrote this blog to discuss the good and bad things about them and why.
- They provide protection for the kits, and, I suppose, the queens, for when a battle comes. Now, I'm not saying that they're actual mothers wouldn't, but they'd probably have more energy and strength.
- They care for the kits. They really do like them, I guess. They keep them out of trouble.
- They make sure the actual queens are okay. They help them with their kits and comfort them.
- They're lazy. To be honest with you, they are. They should at least hunt for the nursery. The permanent queens are just extra mouths to feed if they really aren't going to do anything for the nursery itself.
Okay, in my opinion, Daisy shouldn't even be in the Clan. Cats are tough. They can protect their kits if they believe someone is going to take them away. So, instead of, say, making a plan to attack if humans try to harm her kits, or hiding them, or devising some other plan, she goes to find other cats to protect her, Mouse, Berry, and Hazel. She could have at least stayed in the Clan long enough for her kits and her to train and become strong enough to defend themselves, and then left, hoping for the best. I mean, ThunderClan could always use new Warriors, don't get me wrong. I like how motherly she is, and Mousewhisker, Berrynose, and Hazeltail are great Warriors. Although I honestly don't think Daisy would make a very good Warrior. So I'm really kind of iffy on her. I don't hate her, but I don't love her either.
Okay, so I don't remember the books in the Original Arc much, and I haven't read Warriors in a little while so bare with me here. Anyways, I used to like Fernpaw. I thought she was a good apprentice and all. Okay, so then there's Ferncloud the warrior. Yeah, she's alright. Then she had her kits with Dustpelt. And really, she didn't have that many kits! I must say, I did feel a bit bad for her. Two of her littermates died, and three of her kits died. I was disappointed and a bit angry when she gave up her Warrior duties. *Sigh* Such a good Warrior gone to waste to be in the nursery full-time.
So, in conclusion, I'm actually okay with the permanent queens. Yes, I think that Clovertail is one too, but I don't know anything about that, so I won't get into it. And, I am so sorry for the lack of things in the pros and cons area. I couldn't think of any at the time and I had to get off of the computer.
