Comickit lists their favourite ThunderClan medicine cats

Hello! Comickit here!
In this article I will be sharing with you the top 5 best ThunderClan medicine cats that came after Featherwhisker! (in my opinion)

6. Alderheart
Alderheart was taught by both Jayfeather and Leafpool, and he is a great medicine cat. At first he was a warrior apprentice, but he was struggling with warrior skills and became a medicine cat apprentice instead. Alderheart and Needletail saved Violetshine and Twigbranch when they were kits, and he is a loyal cat. At one point he fell in love with a kittypet, Velvet, but after visiting her once after she left Clan territory, he never spoke to her again.

5. Yellowfang
Yellowfang was first a ShadowClan medicine cat. When she was exiled from her Clan because of Brokenstar accusing her of murdering kits, Firepaw/star helped her on ThunderClan territory and she was eventually accepted into the Clan as its new medicine cat when Spottedleaf died.

4. Leafpool
Leafpool was the daughter of Firestar and Sandstorm and sister of Squirrelflight. She was a great apprentice to Cinderpelt and she gave her sister herbs before she set out on the sun-drown-place quest. She later fell in love with Crowfeather, a WindClan warrior, after he saved her from falling, and she ran away with him. When she had a dream, she and Crowfeather went back to the ThunderClan camp to see badgers attacking the camp. Cinderpelt died, and Leafpool stayed to succeed her. She later went away to have her kits, (Jayfeather, Hollyleaf, Lionblaze) whom she gave to Squirrelflight to raise as if she made a different choice, she would leave ThunderClan without a medicine cat.

3. Cinderpelt
Like Alderheart, Cinderpelt was first a ThunderClan apprentice. When Tigerclaw/star called for Bluestar, Cinderpelt came instead as Bluestar was sick. She permanently hurt her leg on the Thunderpath, taking her future self as a warrior away. Cinderpelt became apprentice to Yellowfang, and became a great medicine cat. She died saving Sorreltail and her newborn kits from a badger, being reincarnated as Cinderkit.

2. Spottedleaf
Spottedleaf, the cat who wasn’t alive in very many books. As a kit and warrior apprentice, Spottedleaf was given a lot of attention by Thistleclaw, who went to the Dark Forest when he died. When Rusty/Firepaw/Firestar came to the Clans, Spottedleaf was very fond of him. She was a gentle and kind cat, and in The Last Hope she gave her life to save Sandstorm, no longer being in StarClan.

*drum roll*


1. Jayfeather
Like Cinderpelt and Alderheart, Jayfeather was first a warrior apprentice. He was apprenticed to Brightheart, whom was upset when Jayfeather became a medicine cat apprentice because of his destiny and blindness. He learned all the herbs quickly, and is a grouchy yet great medicine cat. Although he snaps and is a grumpy cat, you’d rather have him to help you than no cat. He did many things great. He was part of a prophecy to save the Clans from the Dark Forest, he helped Briarlight feel important, he saved Cinderheart when her leg was hurt, he saved Poppyfrost from Breezepelt, he saved Lionblaze and Breezepelt as apprentices, and more.

  • Great! I’m soon up to aVos 4 books to go, so this is my list:
    6. Yellowfang
    5. Featherwhisker (we need more supportive med cats!)
    4. Spottedleaf
    3. Leafpool
    2. Jayfeather
    1… Cinderpelt. Ok, Jayfeather is my faviourte character but Cinderpelt is a better med cat. She’s more supportive, more intelligent, and knows more herbs.
    Just to be fair, I didn’t add Goosefeather in my list because he keeps on putting his Clan in danger. For example, getting his sister killed! He’s crazy, too. Bye! Great article.
