Mates that are Related by Spottedpaw

Spottedpaw lists mates that are related.

Art by Shadow-Ku

So, this is an article about inc*st relationships in warrior cats. There are a LOT. I know there are other articles that talk about this, but, they have a lot of ships that aren’t related. Cats aren’t related by their cousins mates.
Also, spoiler warning for AVOS and TBC. But it’s just relationships, so the spoilers aren’t that bad.
Also Willowpelt and Patchpelt being mates was mentioned once by Kate Kary in 2017, was canon for like a Month, then she realized her mistake and took it back. It is NOT CANON. Also Sanstorm has no comfirmed parents.
So, let’s begin!

1: Lilyheart and Snowbush
This (one of) the most disgusting relationships in warriors. They are First Cousins! Lilyheart’s father is Brakenfur, whose sister is Brightheart, whose son is snowbush.

2: Pebbleshine and Hawkwing
The only non thunderclan couple on this list (for various reasons I will list at the end,) they are first cousins aswell!!
Pebbleshine’s father is Sparrowpelt, whose sister is Cherrytail, whose son is Hawkwing.

3: Dustpelt and Ferncloud
This is semi canon. It was never mentioned in the books, but it is so widely considered canon by all the online warriors media I thought I’d include it. So (apparently) Dustpelt is siblings with Ravenpaw, Frostfur, and Brindleface, who is Fernclouds mom. So Dustpelt is her aunt AND had a crush on her when she was an apprentice. More reasons to hate this ship!

4: Larksong and Sparkpelt
So, these cats are related in two different ways. The first one:
Sparkpelt’s mother is Squirrelflight, whose Cousin is cloudtail, whose daughter is Lilyheart, whose son is Larksong. In this way, they are second cousins once removed. Now on to way two: Sparkpelts father is Bramblestar, whose mother is Goldenflower, whose brother is Lionheart, whose son is Brackenfur. (you can also do Brightheart) Brackenfurs daughter is Lilyheart, whose son is Larksong. So in this way, they are also second cousins once removed. Wowza.

5: Spotfur and Stemleaf
So, they are also related in two ways!
One: Stemleafs father is Thornclaw, whose brother is Brackenfur, whose daughter is Cinderheart, whose daughter is Spotfur. In this way, they are first cousins once removed.
Two: Stemleafs mother is Blossomfall, whose father is Graystripe, whose half sister is Sorreltail, whose daughter is Cinderheart, whose daughter is Spotfur. In this way, they are second cousins.

6: Tigerheartstar and Dovewing
Now, I know what you might be thinking: How? They are from different clans?! But yes, they are blood related!
Tigerheart’s mother is tawnypelt, whose mother is Goldenflower, whose brother is lionheart, who daughter is Brightheart, whose daughter is Whitewing, whose daughter is Dovewing. They are second cousins once removed.

7: Ivypool and Fernsong
One of the most well known inc*st ships, considering there is a whole prophecy about how they are related.
So, Ivypools mother is whitewing, whose father is Cloudtail, whose uncle is Firestar, whose daughter is leafpool, whose son is lionblaze, whose son is Fernsong. They are third cousins. One of the least related on this list.

8: Sorrelstripe and Dewnose
I don’t really consider this canon. It’s never mentioned in the books. I don’t want to list the family tree I have already said, so I use vague terms. Sorrelstripe is a direct descendant to brakenfur and firestar. Dewnose is a direct descendant of Brackenfur, and firestar is his great uncle.

9: Whitewing and Birchfall
So they are related in two different ways.
One: Whitewings mother is Brightheart, whose mother is Frostfur, whose brother is supposedly Dustpelt, who is the father of Birchfall.
Two: Whitewings mother is Brightheart, whose mother is Frostfur, whose sister is Brindleface, whose daughter is Ferncloud, whose son is Birchfall.

10: Okay I don’t really want to put this, since the Onestar super edition hasn’t come out yet. So if heathertail is one stars daughter (which I hope not because then AVOS wouldn’t make sense.) and if Onestar and Ashfoot are related, Heathertail is breezepelts first cousin once removed. But it’s not canon yet!

11: Flipclaw had a crush on Flywhisker, his aunt.

12: Bristlefrost had a crush on Stemleaf, and bristlefrost is Spotfurs niece.

Okay this took awhile. Hopefully I didn’t miss any.
Erin’s, please keep track of your family tree. -Spottedpaw, July 1st.

    3: Dustpelt and Ferncloud

    So Dustpelt is Fercloud’s aunt????

  • Noo I support Larksong and Sparkpelt!! (I mean.. I don’t like Sparkpelt but stillll)
    Cloudtail’s children are Whitewing, Ambermoon, Dewnose and Snowbush. Lilyhearts parents are Brackenfur and Sorreltail – its mentioned more than once.
    However, they are still related. Larksong is Sparkpelts second cousin’s son. But still I don’t blame them. They’re cats.

  • If no cat mated with their relatives then we would’nt have:

    – Birchfall, Spiderleg, Icecloud, Foxleap, Rosepetal, Toadstep, Ivypool, Dovewing, Honeyfur, Larksong, Leafshade, Honeyfern, Poppyfrost, Lilyheart, Cinderheart, Fernsong, Hollytuft, Sorrelstripe, Graystripe, Feathertail, Stormfur, Briarlight, Bumblestripe, Blossomfall, Stemleaf, Eaglewing, Shellfur, Plumstone, Pouncestep, Lightleap, Shadowsight, Finchlight, Nightheart, Bristlefrost, Thriftear, Flipclaw, Myrtlebloom, Baynose, Violetshine, Twigbranch

  • also stemleaf is spotfurs uncle because brakenfur and thornclaw are brothers and thornclaws kit is stemleaf and bakenfurs kit is cinderheart who is spotfurs mother.
