Hi, it’s Osprey, back for another article! This one is going to be fairly simple and straightforward, because I just felt like writing something. If going to be looking at every single cat who is even distantly related to the big baddie himself (I won’t be listing individual relationships, since that’d take too long). Who knows how long this article will be, so let’s get stuck in! Warning that spoilers for the latest arc are ahead!

SKYCLAN ANCESTORS
Before we start, I’ll take note of Tigerstar’s very small SkyClan family – Cloudsytar and Birdflight, and their 2 kits Gorseclaw and Spottedpelt. Gorseclaw in particular is noted to look very similar to Tigerstar. We know that they are related to Tigerstar, but we don’t know how, so we’ll go to Tigerstar’s family now

TIGERSTAR
Starting with Tigerstar, he has 2 sisters, Nightkit and Mistkit. Both died when they were kits, so both their lines don’t continue. His father is Pinestar, and his mother is Leopardfoot, but we’ll get to them later.
Tigerstar had 5 kits, 2 with Goldenflower and 3 with Sasha.
Tigerstar and Goldenflower’s kits are Bramblestar and Tawnypelt, who both have kits of their own. Let’s go to Bramblestar first.

Bramblestar has 4 kits with his mate Squirrelflight – Alderheart, Sparkpelt, Juniperkit and Dandelionkit. Sparkpelt is the only one out of those who has her own kits. She has 3 with Larksong – Flickerkit, Finchlight and Nightheart. None of them have kits as of yet.

Looping back up to Tawnypelt, she has 3 kits with her mate Rowanclaw – Flametail, Dawnpelt and Tigerheart/star. Dawnpelt and Tigerstar had kits. Starting with Dawnpelt’s kits, she had 3 with her mate Crowfrost – Juniperclaw, Strikestone and Sleekwhisker. None of them have their own kits yet. Tigerstar has 5 kits with his mate Dovewing – Shadowsight, Lightleap, Pouncestep, Rowankit and Birchkit. None of them have their own kits yet.

Going back to Tigerstar’s kits with Sasha, they had 3 – Mothwing, Hawkfrost and Tadpole. None of them have had their own kits, so we are done with Tigerstar’s immediate descendants!

PINESTAR
Pinestar is Tigerstar’s father, and we’ll be going over his family here!
Pinestar’s parents are Oakstar and Sweetbriar. Oakstar had 2 kits with an unknown cat, Birchface and Frecklewish (TC), making them Pinestar’s half siblings. Oakstar has no other known family.

Sweetbriar had a sister, Fallowsong, and her family tree is pretty extensive, so let’s make a new section for that.

FALLOWSONG
Fallowsong had 3 kits – Poppydawn, Heronwing and Rabbitleap. Poppydawn is the only one with kits, who she had with Windflight. Her 3 kits are Rosetail, Sweetpaw and Thistleclaw. Thistleclaw is the only one with kits, and he only had 1 kit with Snowfur – Whitestorm. Yes, Tigerstar is distantly related to Thistleclaw.

I’m going with the information that Whitestorm was mates with both Willowpelt and Brindleface here. Whitestorm had 7 kits, 4 with Brindleface and 3 with Willowpelt. Starting with his kits with Brindleface – Ashfur, Ferncloud, Tulipkit and Elderkit. Ferncloud is the only one with kits, so let’s look at her family.

Ferncloud had 7 kits with her mate Dustpelt – Larchkit, Hollykit, Icecloud, Spiderleg, Shrewpaw, Birchfall and Foxleap. Spiderleg and Birchfall had kits of their own. Spiderleg had 2 kits with Daisy – Rosepetal and Toadstep. Neither of them has had their own kits. Birchfall had 2 kits with Whitewing, Ivypool and Dovewing (Dovewing is related to Tigerstar?). They both had their own kits, and since we’ve already gone over Dovewing’s family, we’ll only go over Ivypool’s here.
Ivypool has 3 kits with Fernsong – Bristlefrost, Flipclaw and Thriftear, and none of them have kits yet!

Going back to Whitestorm’s 3 kits with Willowpelt – Sorreltail, Sootfur and Rainwhisker. Sorreltail is the only one of the 3 that has had kits, and she had 6 with her mate Brackenfur – Molepaw, Poppyfrost, Honeyfern, Cinderheart, Lilyheart and Seedpaw. Poppyfrost, Cinderheart and Lilyheart have had kits.

Starting with Poppyfrost, she had 2 kits with Berrynose – Cherryfall and Molewhisker. Neither of them have their own kits yet.
Moving onto Cinderheart, she had 6 kits with Lionblaze – Fernsong, Sorrelstripe, Hollytuft, Spotfur, Snaptooth and Flywhisker. So far, Fernsong, Sorrelstripe and Spotfur have had kits of their own. We’ve gone over Fernsong already, so going to Sorrelstripe and her two kits with Dewnose – Bayshine and Myrtlebloom. They haven’t had kits yet, so going to Spotfur. She’s had 3 kits with Stemleaf – Stemkit, Bristlekit and Greykit. They are still kits, so Cinderheart’s descendants end there.

To finish off Pinestar’s side of the family, Lilyheart had 3 kits with Snowbush – Honeyfur, Leafshade and Larksong. Larksong is the only one with kits, and we went over them when we talked about Sparkpelt.

Time to move onto Leopardfoot!

LEOPARDFOOT
Starting with Leopardfoot’s intermediate family, we have her father, Adderfang, her mother, Swiftbreeze, and her 4 siblings, Willowpelt, Spottedleaf, Patchpelt and Redtail. Adderfang has no known parents, and Swiftbreeze’s mother is Flashnose. Flashnose’s sister is Daisytoe, who we’ll get to later as well.

Of Leopardfoot’s siblings, 2 had kits – Willowpelt and Patchpelt. Starting with Willowpelt, we already know about the kits she had with Whitestorm, but she had 2 kits with an unknown cat – Greystripe and Darkstripe. Only Greystripe has kits, 2 with Silverstream and 3 with Millie. His 2 kits with Silverstream are Feathertail and Stormfur (Feathertail is related to Tigerstar??). Stormfur is the only one with kits. He has 4 With Brook Where Small Fish Swim – Lark That Sings at Dawn, Breeze That Rustles the Leaves, Pine That Clings to Rock and Feather of Flying Hawk.
Now to Greystripe’s Kits with Millie – Blossomfall, Bumblestripe and Briarlight. Of the 3, Blossomfall is the only one with kits, as she has 4 kits with Thornclaw – Shellfur, Eaglewing, Plumstone and Stemleaf. So far, Stemleaf is the only one with kits, but we went over them in Spotfur’s section. Shellfur is mates with Fernstripe, but they don’t have any kits yet

Now onto Patchpelt, who had 2 mates, Goldenflower and Robinwing. He had 3 kits, 2 with Goldenflower – Swiftpaw and Lynxkit, and 1 with Robinwing – Longtail. None of them had their own kits, so now onto Leopardfoot’s great aunt, Daisytoe.

DAISYTOE
Daisytoe had 2 kits with her mate Rooktail – Moonflower and Goosefeather. Of the 2, Only Moonflower had kits. Moonflower had 2 kits with Stormtail – Bluestar and Snowfur, and both had their own kits. We already went over Snowfur’s kits in Thistleclaw’s section so let’s finish this family tree off with the relatives of one of Tigerstar’s greatest enemy’s – Bluestar.

Bluestar’s family tree is pretty simple. Her mate was Oakheart, and they had 3 kits together – Mosskit, Stonefur and Mistystar. Only Mistystar had her own kits. Her 4 kits with Blackclaw were Primrosepaw, Reedwhisker, Perchkit and Pikepaw, none of whom had kits of their own.

Before I wrap up this article, here’s some interesting facts about Tigerstar’s family tree:
