My Opinion On The Warrior Code by Ivywish

Ivywish shares their opinion on the warrior code.

Hello it’s Wish, Today I am giving my opinion on the warrior code.
First of all the warrior code was made to protect cats from each clan but some changes should be made (the last edit I know of was Daisytails’s).

1. Defend your clan, even with your life. You may have friendships with cats from other clans, but your loyalty must remain to your clan, as one day you may meet them in battle.
This code is straightforward, but I think that apprentices should be able to have friends in other clans for gatherings.

2. Do not hunt or trespass on another clan’s territory.
Again this code is straightforward, if this wasn’t in the warrior code or got changed I believe that it would be havek.

3. Elders, queens, sick or injured cats and kits must be fed before apprentices and warriors. Unless they have permission, apprentices may not eat until they have hunted to feed the elders.
I think that sick and, or injured cats should be fed first so they have strength but kits usually get milk from their mother until 2-3 moons old, so kits shouldn’t always be fed first until they can eat fresh kill.

4. Prey is killed only to be eaten. Give thanks to starclan for its life.
I think that this code should be reworded because kits like to play with things and I think that it is too easy for kits to play with food without knowing the code.

5. A kit must be at least six moons old to become an apprentice.
I think that some kits can become apprentices at 5 ½ moons if they are strong enough, but I think kits should have to pass some sort of easy test to make sure they are ready to become apprentices, but keep this rule the same for now and for the kit’s safety.

6. Newly appointed warriors will keep a silent vigil for one night after receiving their warrior name.
I mostly agree with this one but I don’t agree that sometimes apprentices feel ready and their mentors feel they are ready, they really aren’t ready. So I think that the vigil should be held 3 days after but they go on dawn patrols and evening patrols every day before the vigil.

7. A cat cannot be made deputy without having at least one apprentice.
I sorta agree with this one because I know that when you have an apprentice you get experience with being in charge but instead of needing to have one before, I think that if a cat is made deputy they should have an apprentice while they are deputy.

8. The deputy will become clan leader when the clan leader dies, retires, or is exiled.
This code is one of the rules that keeps clans together along with 13. So I think that no changes should ever be made to this code for the clans to stay together.

I think that most of the codes should have minor changes but most of them should stay the same for other cats’ safety and so that clans don’t go into battle every time they meet each other on borders.
