Whitepaw wonders which of his mates Greystripe loved more.
Hi! This is Whitepaw with yet another article because I’m so full of ideas and I’m hoping to make this one into kind of a series, except not really because the other ones in the series would just be different cats and who they loved more. Anyway, I will be talking about who Graystripe loved more.
For Silverstream, Graystripe loved her enough to break the warrior code by going to see her and risk being thrown out of his clan. He was really depressed when she died and he really missed her. He knew that people were going to find out eventually that Silverstream was carrying his kits and then he would get in trouble. In Forest of Secrets Graystripe tells Tigerclaw “I know what you’re going to say, Tigerclaw. I don’t care.” That’s right after Silverstream dies. It also says “Fireheart picked up the kit with his teeth, and left Graystripe beside the cat he had loved more than his Clan, more than honor, more than life itself.” That, I guess, is how much Graystripe loved Silverstream.
For Millie, Graystripe loved her despite the fact that she was born a kittypet. Millie was a good, loyal mate for Graystripe and she helped him find his way home. If they traveled so far together they must know each other very well. Graystripe really does love Millie and they have lots of adventures together as well as a litter of three kits. Graystripe does sound sad and lonely without Millie in the elders den with him. I think that he truly loved Millie.
In conclusion, I think that Graystripe really loved both of his mates. Silverstream was kind of like his college sweetheart or whatever and he had kits with her even though he wasn’t supposed to, and then Millie is like his true mate, the one he was with for most of his life. He truly loved them both and was sad when they both died. I think he loved Millie more because he was with her for longer and they knew each other very well. Graystripe was even imagining a conversation with Millie and what she would say. I’m not sure if it’s fair to say he loved her more, though. Anyway, I hope you liked this and next time I will be doing who did Crowfeather love more.
