Skyshimmer argues against the medicine cat code.
Hey guys! Skyshimmer here with my second article! Today, I will be rambling on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on about why Medicine Cats should be allowed to have a mate and kits.
Problem: They can’t care for their kits and the Clan at the same time
Okay, Moth Flight, it’s hard to care for kits, believe me, we get it. But what if the Medicine Cat is a tom? They should continue healing! Toms don’t sit in the nursery 24/7 caring for kits! What in StarClan was she thinking? Even if it’s a she-cat, there are certain instances where they should be allowed to have kits. Let’s take… uhhh… Mothwing as an example. Let’s say she found a tom she likes. She has a trained apprentice (Willowshine), so she could just take a break while her apprentice healed the Clan!
Or we could take Ivypool as an example. So, let’s say Ivypool’s a Medicine Cat, and she has kits. Remember how Fernsong proposed to stay in the nursery with the kits as soon as they were old enough not to need their mother’s milk? The Medicine Cats could do that instead of just not having kits! My point is, it isn’t as bad as Moth Flight says it is.
Moth Flight also got sad because her mate (Micah) died from fall damage, but who wouldn’t be? You don’t have to train as a Medicine Cat to be devastated! Lots of other characters are sad, and they aren’t Medicine Cats!
For thos of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, Moth Flight discovered the Moonstone (magic rock that lets Medicine Cats speak to the residents of Cat Heaven) and was also the first WindClan Medicine Cat. She followed a green moth that led her to the Moonstone, discovered it, had kits, and gave one to each Clan (aside from WindClan) because apparently she couldn’t care for her kits and the Clan at the same time. She also has her own Super Edition.
Thanks for reading everyone, and may StarClan light your path! Skyshimmer out!
