Warriors who Already Have Correct Genetics by Hollykit

Hollykit lists some cats who do have correct genetics in the series.

Hello, here’s one of my first articles! Some people seem to criticize Warriors on genetics, but it really doesn’t matter. But, I’m going to tell you about six cats who are genetically accurate. Just note, these might be short. I’m also pretty young, so be warned, this might be incorrect!

Spoiler alerts for family tree stuff!

1. Squirrelflight
Simply, Squirrelflight has two red parents. Firestar is a red tom, and Sandstorm is a diluted red she-cat, meaning they would have cream or red kittens—so, Squirrelflight is correct! Plus, her parents have green eyes, so she was guaranteed to have green eyes like them!

2. Alderheart
This boy inherits a gene from his mother—the genetically accurate gene.
Toms have one chromosome, which is the one that expresses color, from their mother–and he has red fur, like his mother. And his eyes are amber–like his father!

3. Tiny Branch
His mother, Star Flower, is red, and his father, Skystar, was light gray. Gray(aka blue) is a dilution of black. Tiny Branch, in real life, would carry two X chromosomes! He gets red from his mother on one, and black from his father on the other. Then, he would get the dilution from his father, making him a blue and cream tortie! Cats can only get blue eyes if they have white fur masking their eyes, because white fur has no pigment, and neither do blue eyes! Unless he has white fur masking his eyes, assuming they’re blue based on the wiki, that would be impossible. But if they were inheritable, he would get them from his father! 😛

4. Tallstar
He gets both the black and white from his mother! And his eyes are from both parents. If Finchkit had black patches, I would add her here..

5-6. Stormfur and Feathertail
As I’ve said, blue eyes are not inheritable. And, they’re impossible without white fur on the face(unless they’re an ojos azules). But let’s say blue eyes were inheritable. Feathertail would get her eyes from her mother. Or, y’know, if she had white on her face. That would work too.
Both parents are gray/silver, resulting in gray/silver kits!
And, Stormfur gets his eyes from Graystripe. 😛

What do you think? Notice any other accurate cats? See anything incorrect in this article? Please, tell me in the comments! 😀

Great article! I think all this is correct except, Firestar cannot be ginger in the first place. Although I’m not entirely sure.

Firestar is almost genetically accurate. Here’s the results for a cat genetics calculator after I plugged in the most probable genes for Jake and Nutmeg:
“Kittens will be shorthaired. Toms can be cinnamon. Mollies can be cinnamon tortoiseshell. Kittens can be mackerel tabby or classic tabby. Kittens can have under 50% white spotting or none at all.”
This actually shows how Princess is genetically inaccurate! SHe would realistically be a cinnamon tortie, not brown tabby like her mother. Firestar, on the other hand, would be a little less of a bright ginger and more of a cinnamon, or red, which adds up with Squirrelflight’s genetics. Princess and Leafpool are the odd ones out, genetics-wise!

Okay! I read that about Firestar in another genetics article somewhere so… I’m also not the best at genetics 🙁 😉

Wow this is a very awesome and unique article Hollykit!! You write a lot better than I did when I was younger, so your age really didn’t matter for this article.

They do look like Bluestar. But do they look like Oakheart as well?
If the kits looked like one of the parents, there are many cats I could name. Poppyfrost for instance looks exactly like her mother as well.

well… Snowfur was white, and Snowfur is ofc Bluestar’s sister. And Stormtail is a dark blue-gray tom, so Mosskit could have very well gotten black-and-white spotted fur😛 Moonflower also has dark stripes (which probably look black)

yes, thats a good point. The authors need to pay a bit more attention to genetics.

This is amazing! I only noticed one tiny error: Star Flower is not a red cat. She’s more golden.
Aside from that, this was a wonderful read.

True. She’s a golden tabby she-cat with a white chest and paws, and green eyes

yes, this is awesome, i think its odd how jayfeather was grey when neither leafpool nor crowfeather were grey, but feathertail was. Just a thought.

Jayfeather gets his tabby gene from Leafpool, and grey from his Grandmother; Ashfoot. His blue eyes are from Crowfeather.

noice
the only problem is that do the parents even have correct genetics themselves?
