Hello Everyone! This is my first Article on Blogclan. I’m going to tell you why I like Millie. Remember, I don’t love her, I only like her.
Who Millie Is (Skip this if you know)
Millie is a cat in Thunderclan, currently an elder. She was the cat that brought Graystripe back to Thunderclan when he went missing. They met and eventually became mates. She convinced him to go back to Thunderclan and agreed to go back with him. He taught her the clan ways. Everyone was happy to see Graystripe back, but they were uncertain about Millie.
I haven’t read any of the comics involving Millie and Graystripe, so I might not be including some info.
Why People Hate Her:
1. People see her as replacing Silverstream as Graystripe’s mate.
2. She refused to take a warrior name.
3. She had three kits, Bumblestripe, Briarlight, and Blossomfall. When a tree fell on her, Briarlight paralyzed her spine. Millie shows all of her attention towards Briarlight and none towards her other kits.
Why I like her:
1. Okay, replacing Silverstream. I wouldn’t put it that way. Millie loved Graystripe with no knowledge of Silverstream at first. But she did replace her, right? No, only kind of. But Silverstream was dead. Graystripe needed Millie, especially as an elder. Silverstream would have wanted him to be happy, right? Whether that was with a new mate or not.
2. There’s nothing wrong with Millie not taking a warrior name. She had always known herself as Millie. She wouldn’t be comfortable with any other name.
3. Okay so this is what she’s most hated for, not caring for her other kits. Well she cares and still cares for her kits, more than anything. Briarlight’s injury shocked and frightened her so much. She spent every moment with her. Briarlight’s injury seemed to overshadow everything that happened to her other kits. She tried to show she loved them,but it was so hard for her to balance her love with all three kits with Briarlight’s injury.
Thanks for Reading!

    I agree mostly with Sky!!!! Thank you! Blossomfall went out in the first to get away from her mom (and to explore. Like no other cat has?) and not get yelled at like always. Besides, when they got lost in the tunnels, Blossomfall actually felt bad, sad and happy at the same time because she thought her mom would be better off without her. It’s not her fault. Blossomfall didn’t know Millie still loves her. I mean what would she expect? She gets yelled at all the time when Bumblestripe is like the perfect kit and padding after Dovewing. Blossomfall always felt she wasn’t good enough anyway. I respect that Millie was trying to take care of Briarlight but when the doctor says the patient needs some space and when the patient herself says she needs some, uh, listen to the doctor’s orders and the patient’s needs! Briarlight felt bad for her sister too and wanted Millie to stop fussing over her. And that’s what BRIARLIGHT wants. Millie wants her daughter to feel good and happy, right? Well…….

    Don’t worry, I don’t hate Millie but I don’t hate Blossomfall either

      I feel like Blossomfall and Bumblestripe both don’t really consider Millie their mom.

      Easter pranks!

    Oh and Prowlclaw’s comment was great too! Totally agree with you (like your name as well)!
    And random thing: this is for cats like Breezepelt, Blossomfall, (those are cats that I feel are misunderstood) and….uh yeah.

    “I will love you for you (who will love me for me?)
    Not for what you have done (not for what I have done)
    Or what you will become (or what I will become).”
