Why I Like Some Certain Unpopular Cats; by Lupinekit

Lupinekit provides us with a contrarian view. Contains spoilers and a lot of offbeat opinions. Get ready, friends!

DawnstarHere I am to explain reasons why I like the cats some of you guys might hate the most!

Remember… Spoiler Alert!

1, Dovewing:

Some of you may hate her for reasons like Tigerheart and the power stubborn thing. Dovewing loved Tigerheart, but she was wise to leave him and to not meet him anymore. She may have not wanted powers at first because she didn’t want to be different from other cats, and then later when she lost her powers, she was complaining about it. Of course, Dovewing was born with those powers. She wasn’t a normal-sight cat.

2, Leafpool:

Just like Dovewing – She fell in love with another cat. But she was also wise to leave him forever. She then had kits, and then gave them to her sister Squirrelflight. And she kept it as a secret, which was a good choice. She was the only medicine cat at that time, and we already know Brightheart knows some, but if Brightheart became medicine cat, then probably no more CloudXBright and Amber / Dew / Snow and SnowxLily.

3, Mapleshade (I’ve seem some of the Mapleshade haters):

Some of you guys may say that she is a monster, a killer, etc. Though she may have had kits with a RiverClan cat that “killed” Birchface and Flowerpaw (who went after Birch), it is no excuse to exile – especially the kits! It was never the kits’ fault. Furballstar (Oakstar) decided to exile her and kits just because of that. Anyway to the killing. Yes, Mapleshade killed the cats who she believed to be responsible for the death of her kits or something like that. But she had visions of her kits suffering. Mapleshade obviously loved her kits. Those cats weren’t her loved ones.

4, Daisy:

You guys may think of her as “annoying fretting furball”, but annoying it may be for you, the concern is okay. They were her kits, and she could also have been scared because of Berrynose’s sliced tail. She doesn’t want her kits to be in danger, in case of a Berrynose accident.

5, Bluestar:

This is the cat that I don’t even know why people hate her… I have her as my second or third favourite leader. If it’s about her thinking of how bad her life was, it’s okay about that. No one would like to lose their loved ones. Kits. She had kits and wanted to take them to RiverClan because Oakheart was there, and Bluestar couldn’t keep them. If she gave them to a ThunderClan queen, the queen might not keep the secret or a kit would have heard and spread it to the Clan. Her anger in her last books of life? I do dislike about the Swiftpaw thing though, but she was angered because she was stressed out of the “deputy” she trusted before, Tigerclaw (not going to call him Tigerstar because he doesn’t deserve the leader rank honor for me). Then, she might have felt that StarClan betrayed her or something. She didn’t really understand the prophecy.


  • I feel sorry for Mapleshade, but she did get what she deserved. Killing cats was not the answer to her problem. The Clans were a lot stricter on the warrior code in ancient times, and the punishments were more harsh. And besides, Birchface was Oakstar’s SON

  • I agree with lots of what you say though I like Squirrelflight better than her sister (she’s in my top favs. Don’t ask for the number cause I don’t know really. She’s like maybe third or fourth on my list). Other than that, Daisy, Bluestar, Mapleshade, and Dovewing are fine with me (I like Mapleshade and Daisy is such a good protective brave queen. I wanna explore Bluestar more though cause I haven’t read her edition yet)

  • I like Dovewing and Daisy, I love Bluestar and Leafpool. This article rocks, you are right it is not ALL Mapleshades fault, I still don’t like it.
