Honeykit shares who they think are the worst parents in the series.
May include spoilers
Hi everyone!!! This is Honeykit with my first article! Today I’m going to list the worst parents in my opinion! (This is MY opinion so don’t write any criticizing comments. Got it?) Okay, so read on!
Description: dark blue-gray tom with blue eyes
Kits: Bluestar and Snowfur
Why do I dislike Stormtail? So when I was reading Bluestar’s Prophecy, I looked at the part when she first met her father. Stormtail didn’t seem very excited about it. Even throughout the whole book, didn’t act like a real parent and Bluestar and Snowfur grew up alright without him. But he wasn’t that bad. He still gave affection to his daughters. It’s just that usually, parents in warriors are more open towards their children.
Description: dark smoky-gray, almost black, tom with blue eyes
Mates: Leafpool, Nightcloud
Kits: Hollyleaf, Lionblaze, and Jayfeather (Leafpool’s) and Breezepelt (Nightcloud’s)
Okay. There several reasons why I don’t like Crowfeather. I like him as a character good enough, but not as a father. Why? I think his attention span is short. First he likes Feathertail. She dies! Now he likes Leafpool! They run away! Then they return to the Clans! Leafpool bears him three kits that he ignores and doesn’t even know about them (though I am sure that Leafpool tried to inform him about it). Then, he takes Nightcloud as a mate to try to prove his loyalty! I mean come on! He didn’t even love her! Then, they have a kit. This is where the ‘bad parent’ comes in. He ignores Breezepelt, causing Nightcloud to raise Breezepelt to hate him! That is what caused Breezepelt to train in the Dark Forest! As for Leafpool’s litter, when he found out the truth, he refused to believe it! He might have been surprised, but really? You loved her and not the kits? He is in general not good father material.
Description: thin, soft-furred, black-and-white she-cat
Mate: Sandgorse, Woollytail
Kits: Tallstar, Finchkit, Wrenflight, Rabbitkit, Bristlekit, and Flykit
From the start of Tallstar’s Revenge, I thought Palebird was an okay character. Why okay? Because she seemed so focused on Finchkit’s death that she didn’t pay much attention to Tallstar was a kit!
But my opinion changed when she didn’t defend Tallpaw from his father’s rage that Tallpaw was supposed to be a moor-runner! She just let it happen!
Then, this was when I really disliked her! Sandgorse dies. Tallstar grieves. And BAM! She becomes mates with Woollytail (weird name)! Is she even sensing her son’s grief? No! And BAM! She has four kits and scolds Tallstar for trying to keep them warm. It’s as if she forgot all about her first litter! Then, when Tallstar decided to leave the Clan, she was like “Oh, why are you leaving? Okay, you can go.”
That is why I don’t think Palebird is a very good mother. Yes, she was good to her second litter, but neglected her first litter.

Kits: Runningnose, Tangleburr, Deerfoot, Brokenstar (foster)
Argh! Lizardstripe is the worst mother ever, except for 1#! I could go on a whole rant about her! First, she is seen talking to Hollyflower about expecting kits.
“But I don’t want my life to change!”
You chose a mate! Be grateful!
Then when Yellowfang asks her to take care of Brokenstar, and Raggedstar tells her that Brokenstar is his son, she says,
“Oh, if toms could have kits, I would have asked Mudclaw to have these brats of mine himself!”
Calling your a kit a brat is enough. But your own kits? She only agreed to have Brokenstar because she thought it would give her power as the foster mother of the deputy’s kits!
And please give a drumroll for the WORST MOTHER EVER IN MY OPINION……
Description: soft-furred pale-gray she-cat
Kits: Oakheart, Crookedstar
Okay. Prepare for ranting. Remember when I said I could go on a rant about Lizardstripe? Well I can go on a even bigger one about Rainflower! Okay here’s the story! Her kits are born! She is so proud of Stormkit’s ‘handsome’ looks! Then, when he and his brother, Oakkit, sneak out, and he is injured, obviously, this is not her fault for not paying attention to her kits and preventing them from sneaking out! Because her mate, Shellheart, defends Stormkit, she breaks up with him! Then, she removes him from her nest and openly favors Oakkit just to spite him! She changes his name to Crookedkit! You can’t possibly get the image of ‘loving mother’ from that! This is what caused him to run away! Then, when he becomes a warrior, is she proud? No! It was only Willowbreeze and Oakheart who were proud! That, people, is why I think she is a horrible mother!
So yeah, thanks for reading! Signing out!
