Gingerpaw wonders about the medicine cat rule about kits.
Should medicine cats have kits? Hey, guys! Gingerpaw here! I will write my opinion on this topic. I think this topic has a lot of down sides and up sides! Perfect to make a argument in the comments :p! (Just So everyone know, I have not read the fifth series yet so I don’t know why the rule came to be)
First I will list the positives!
I’m going to start in the beginning of a cat’s life; when they are kits. When they are kits, they have no responsibility, their choices aren’t the best, either. If you don’t have any responsibility, then your brain won’t even care what you decide, and you don’t have any experience to even make a good argument. And anyways, why would you care of having kits or not! You just have to choose if you want to fight to protect your Clan or if you want to heal your injured Clanmates to protect your Clan, equally important! Let’s think about this, when you were in first grade, are you thinking of having kids of your own? No! For cats I think it’s the same way, in both examples, of cats and humans, all you really think about doing is playing.
Now the medicine cat is a medicine cat apprentice. Everyone has crushes. Let’s look at kids in my school when we were still in fifth grade. Most of them “dated”. Which means they had crushes on each other but didn’t think much of it, or even knew what dating actually is. Now let’s take a look at Cinderpaw(pelt) at the time. She had a crush on Fireheart(star) at the time. She really liked him, and the warrior code saying if you are a medicine cat you can’t have mates or kits is translating to if you are a medicine cat, you should have the feeling of a rock. Seriously. And probably seeing other cats have crushes on each other makes you feel like you are left out.
Now let’s look at the medicine cat as the Clans medicine cat.
What if they did have kits? Let’s take a look at queens, once they have kits, they are not just protective of their kits, they love all the kits in the nursery. Why? That’s because they know how it feels like to have kits, and if a kit is sick, they are willing to do everything to save the poor kit, because they know how heartbreaking it is for the other queen. The medicine cats will just become better medicine cats. And if they do have kits, it just causes more trouble than it should have, the Clan could get more kits!
Now for the downsides
Let’s take a look at if the medicine cat is a medicine cat apprentice.
So now, let’s take a look at my peers as fifth graders. Most of them got so caught up in having crushes that it let them interfere with their schoolwork. I thought it was the same with any cat at first. But then I realized that, for warrior cats, some of them like to brag to get mates, so they work even harder. And my peers did sports and they liked to brag in that. Both school work and medicine cat work trains your brain and the other kids, or cats in this case don’t really care about if they are not a smart kid, the rest of the kids think they are nerds.
Let’s take a look at if the medicine cats are medicine cats.
If no one is there to take care of the kits, then the Clan would be a complete disaster. Luckily, that most likely would never happen because there are always queens in the nursery.
So, what do I think of medicine cats having kits? They should be allowed to! Bye, BlogClan!
