The Strong Bond Between Littermates by Iceclaw

Iceclaw talks about the bonds between littermates throughout the series.

Hi BlogClan! It’s me Iceclaw! Ta da! (I think I’m best known for my skits: Which Warrior?). Today for my article, I’m going to talk about the bond between littermates.

First up,

Squirrelflight and Leafpool

Those two sisters definitely had a special bond between themselves. I will be pointing out some major events that prove how special their relationship is.

Squirrelpaw (as an apprentice) was really determined to save her sister from her capture in the Twolegplace
They have this special ability where they can sense each other’s emotions, kinda like Jayfeather’s ability. (Cool!).
Squirrelflight agreed to lie for Leafpool about her kits. She agreed to lie to her clan, to her mate, to everyone. She must have known the consequences will be big. That is how much she loved her sister.

2. Ivypool and Dovewing

As apprentices, Ivypool felt unrecognized compared to her sister, Dovewing. She didn’t want to live under her shadow. But in the end, they were still sisters.

They expressed concern towards each other whenever one of them was in trouble
Comfort each other when one of them is sad

3. Lionblaze, Hollyleaf, and Jayfeather

As kits, all three of them were adventurous, leading them into some trouble! They were the original three, and not only that, they were littermates.

They embarked on an adventure; the really first one as kits, exploring the fox den!
They believed they held the power of stars in their paws, leading into an even more close relationship with each other; they had a unique connection with each other
After Hollyleaf ran away, Jayfeather and Lionblaze kept her secret and was really happy to see her again when she came back again

4. Snowfur and Bluestar

And finally, Snowfur and Bluestar. Even though Snowfur died early, she was with her sister through hard times.
as kits, they play together a lot
As warriors, they hunted together
When Snowfur died, Bluestar felt the loss badly. (Some littermates such as Brackenfur and Cinderpelt were not really close. Brackenfur did not really grieve for Cinderpelt).
Even dead, Snowfur watched over her sister and guided her through obstacles


I hope you enjoyed this article! Share your thoughts down below. 🙂

Nice article 🙂

Also, how do you know Brackenfur didn’t grieve for Cinderpelt? There’s no proof that he didn’t. Some people/cats aren’t as open about it.

I agree with most of this, but who said Brackenfur didn’t grieve for Cinderpelt?! He named his kit after her, and he was shown to be guilty for going on with his apprenticeship when Cinderpelt couldn’t. There’s probably more evidence, but I’m in a hurry 😛

Great article! My favorite littermates are Jayfeather and Lionblaze. After Hollyleaf left, it was just the two of them, and they were really close.

I agree that littermates have an extremely strong bond but it depends on the cats because some littermates aren’t close to each other

Nice job 😸! Though I have no siblings, I can tell that the bond between littermates are very strong 😉. They grow together, experience similar things and share a closer relationship than with any other cats (at least most of them are like this 😛). Watching these cats adventuring together is very enjoyable 😺.

No I’m sure Brackenfur grieved. He just hid it so that he could comfort Sorreltail (his mate) when her brother, Sootfur, died. Why do you think Cinderheart was named Cinderkit?

Good article though!

The bond that littermates share is really based on who they are and what they’ve been through, as you explained with Jayfeather, Lionblaze, and Hollyleaf. Good and interesting article!

Nice job! I’ve always loved the bonds between littermates, especially the strong ones.

But as Blue and Cheetah said, who says that Brackenfur didn’t grieve?

I would rant about how awesome Brackenfur is, but Cheeto, Sky, Foxie, and Blue pretty much voiced what I really needed to say. 😀
