Forestpaw shares a theory about Snowkit and Snowtuft. Spoilers for The Prophecies Begin and Omen of the Stars!
(SPOILERS FOR TPB AND OOTS) Hi, fellow BlogClanners! So very recently, I had seen a video on YouTube about a theory that Snowkit, a deaf kit of Speckletail’s who had got scooped by a hawk, could have turned into Snowtuft, a Dark Forest cat. I didn’t actually watch it, but I had seen it on that sidebar thingy. Please note that I have not read The Code of the Clans yet, or any of those special books, so I might explain this a bit differently. So today, I will be telling a couple reasons why Snowtuft could’ve been Snowkit, and explaining them:
1. They have the same fursona and prefix.
Yes, Snowkit and Snowtuft have the same fursona; a white tom with blue eyes. Obviously, they have the same prefix. Could it be a coincidence? Probably not, because if we go back to the time of Mapleshade and all of those guys, there was never a white tom with blue eyes that had the prefix of “Snow”. We can even go back further to DotC, and nothing there!
2. We had never seen Snowkit in StarClan.
If you have been paying really close attention to who died and who didn’t, you probably noticed that we got to see all of the cats that have died in StarClan (Or the Dark Forest, if you want to count Darkstripe and Tigerstar). We had even seen Mosskit in Bluestar’s Prophecy when Bluestar was granted her lives! But, we had never, EVER saw Snowkit. He could’ve possibly been sent to StarClan for a short period of time, and somehow got sent to the Dark Forest from some weird message, or he was just really struggling about the fact he was deaf, and maybe some Dark Forest cats got rid of it so he could come with them. Or maybe he just went there for no apparent reason.
3. Many of the cats treat him very badly.
A lot of cats in the Dark Forest were a bit untreated with all the deadly fighting and whatnot, but Hawkfrost and Mapleshade seems to really hate Snowtuft. You might think, “Why is this such a big deal?” Well, Hawkfrost really hates ThunderClan (unless you’re thinking about Ivypool, which Hawkfrost really did fall for her tricks), and especially Stormfur, who he tries to completely eliminate from the Clans by pressuring Mothwing to lie about the sign she “saw” from StarClan. Also, Mapleshade just really started to hate ThunderClan for keeping her out. If you remember right, Yellowfang shows Jayfeather the Dark Forest. They both had walked past Hawkfrost and Snowtuft, who were really getting aggressive with each other. Hawkfrost keeps pressuring and pushing Snowtuft to go on. Hawkfrost then claws violently at him. Mapleshade had also told him, “Snowtuft! I might have known! You mangy pile of dung, get back into the fight and show some mettle.”, In the Forgotten Warrior (pg. 125). Also, Snowkit’s half-brother is Lionheart, which means that Tigerstar could’ve tried to test him since Tigerstar hated Lionheart for being chosen as deputy for a short period of time. This could possibly mean that Snowtuft could’ve been Snowkit from the beginning.
4. We don’t know!
Overall, we never got to hear Snowkit say anything, other than “S’all right.”, when he reacted to Cinderpelt and Fireheart’s treatment in A Dangerous Path on pg. 84. The only thing we saw him do was act strangely, and not hear others (and get scooped up by that hawk. RIP). So, we night not even find out, after all!
