Ahem! LeafCloud here. I am new to BlogClan, but I have been reading many fan articles and decided to make one of myself to defend my favorite characters! So, let’s start!

My favorite cats:
1: Firestar!!!
I love him. He was in so many prophecies, and he was such a nice cat. He didn’t get mad when the clan cats taunted him about his kitty pet roots (except with LongTail) and he cared about his clan above anything else.

2: BrackenFur
Look, I know this wasn’t a popular choice, but I think BrackenFur was great. He was a good mentor to WhitePaw, and he fought every battle. He was always easy going and nice to every cat. Also, he didn’t complain when he was kicked out of the medicine cat den due to JayKit needing space, and he was a vey patient and experienced warrior. I think BrackenFur should’ve been the deputy instead of BrambleClaw (Don’t get mad at me for saying that, and I would love to hear your opinions!!!)

3: Bluestar
I love Bluestar. She was brave and kind, and I understood her motives in Bluestar’s prophecy. She did go a little crazy in the end of the prophecies begin, but I think she did it for a reason. I felt empathy for her in Bluestar’s prophecy. Losing Snowfur and Moonflower must be really painful. And also dealing with Thistleclaw. She couldn’t have let him become deputy. Losing her kits was painful as well! Bluestar could have won the award for “the warrior cat who has experienced the most pain”.

4: Jayfeather
Now this is a popular choice! I don’t really have many reasons why I like him, it’s just because I think he was really smart, and if I were him, I would do the exact same things that he did. Jayfeather learned how to deal with being a medicine cat, and I totally understood his motives. Losing his dream as a warrior must be really difficult for him.

5: BristleFrost
Who doesn’t like BristleFrost? She’s kind and generous, and she risked everything for the ones she loved. She gave up her life and even her entire existence to protect her clan. I love this cat. She could’ve won the award for being the kindest cat in warrior cat history.

Warrior cats I dislike
1: IvyPool
Before y’all get angry at me, let me explain why I dislike her. At first, I saw her as a cat who saw nothing but her jealousy. I hated her for lying and acting as though she’s important. She was responsible for RussetFur’ death. I don’t like her. And the fact that she once trained in the Dark Forest annoys me the most. Even though she was a spy in the end, she killed AntPelt. I think she is just a murderous character.

2: Dovewing
I don’t like her! She whines about her life every day, and she ran away with Tigerheartstar just to be with her love. If it was me, I’d have rejected Tigerheartstar and went to be with Bumblestripe instead. At least it wasn’t breaking the warrior code! And the clan half expected it anyways. It would’ve let the clan down.

3: BrambleStar
I don’t really dislike him THAT much, but I just think he’s a bit ambitious like TigerStar one. When he didn’t get appointed his first apprentice, he was as sad as a….something. BrambleClaw keeps ordering everyone around. If I were part of the clan, I’d not have let anyone boss me around if I think their decision is not reasonable. I am not a soft person and I will reject orders if I have to.

That’s all, my fellow BlogClanners! I would love to hear your opinions about these cats! Please leave comments if you like.


Fan Articles


  • I agree with everything, except Ivypool and Dovewing. Ivypool, in my opinion, shouldn’t have been expected to realize that the order she recieved from the Dark Forest- to invade part of ShadowClan- was phony. The Dark Forest cats were manipulating her, and they were very good at it. This again explains why she trained in the Dark Forest. The cats there manipulated her emotions to be used against her, and that’s why she was an ally to them for a while. And Ivypool killed Antpelt to prove ‘loyalty’ to the Dark Forest, so that she could continue finding more about their plan, and because of her doing this, she likely saved many cats- and losing one cat’s afterlife to save many cats and likely their afterlives is a sacrifice that probably had to be made.

    ‘You can’t decide who you love’. Dovewing did not love Bumblestripe, and he was a bit of a creep anyway. She loved Tigerheart. If Dovewing had gotten with Bumblestripe, that would have been fair to neither her nor Bumblestripe. He would be left with a mate who didn’t love him, and she would be left with a mate she didn’t love. That’s a no-win situation. I don’t at all blame her for leaving the Clans with Tigerheart. She loved him, and everything would be much worse if they had just stayed in their Clans. Both cats would always be thinking of each other, and Dovewing’s kits would likely be shunned because of her parentage. And if I remember correctly, Dovewing doesn’t whine about life every day? If you are referring to her ‘whining’ about losing her clairvoyance in Dovewing’s Silence, she had a very good reason to ‘whine’ about that. She had just become, to her standards, partially deaf and blind. She shouldn’t be expected to just shake that off.

  • I agree with everything except Ivypool.

    First, Ivypool had no idea what The place of no stars was and she thought it was Starclan! I mean, would you except help from a warrior who you thought was from Starclan? I hate Starclan but that’s a whole other article. Hawkfrost manipulated her to join the DF and it wasn’t her fault that he did!

    And for being jealous, her sister had meetings with the leader, med cat and a senior warrior, while she was just an apprentice! Ivypaw was just another apprentice who got bullied by other apprentices for not being as great at hunting as Dumbpaw.

    When she killed Antpelt what did you expect? Not kill him and let him kill her or some other DF cat kill her? If she didn’t kill him, they would start to suspect her, if that happens she could no longer spy on them, and the clans could lose the battle because of that! And she was spying on the DF for goodness sake! She was risking her life every night just by sleeping while her sister was off cheating on Bumblestripe for a Shadowclan warrior while her sister might be dying!

    Other than that great article!

  • Firestar – I LOVE

    Brackenfur – good guy


    Jayfeather – snappy boi, top 10 fav

    Bristlefrost – I LOVE her

    Ivypool – love the name, love the cat

    Dovewing – I kinda hate!

    bramblestar – hes a jerk

    So i agree with everything exept ivypool

  • Brackentuft the T.M.N.T. Fan | Brackie/Bracken/Tufty | I'm in my Voltron: Legendary Defender phase LET'S GOOOO | I LOVE KLANCE SO MUCH | SAVE RISE OF THE TMNT | Mento to the totally radical Rowanpaw (Where are you, Rowan? ☹) | She/Her says:

    Great article! The only one I really disagree with is Ivypool (because she’s actually my second favorite cat).

    • It’s a really good article, and I agree with everything but Dovewing and Ivypool. First I know Ivypool was jealous at first and trained in the dark forest, but she didn’t know better! also if your sibling was getting all the attention and people act like he/she is so important you would prob be jealous too. Also in the end I think that she turned out to be a good cat. Dovewing I don’t think whines about her life all the time so u can elaborate on that, and yes she did switch clans but she really did love Tigerstar! we can expect her to mate with Bumblestripe if she didn’t really love him! (I know this is kinda long but I had alot to say)

  • Agreed Dovewing is not a great character in my opinion. She is so bratty and completely ignored her sister and then, ran off with Tigerstar. Really? REALLY? I think she had the potential to be a great character but she was so stuck up to her sister. I feel bad for Ivypool. I think she also ruined Ivypool. Without Dovewing ignoring her sister and acting more important, Ivypool wouldn’t have gone to the Dark Forest!

    Agreed again with Brackenfur. Love him! He’s kind and patient. And Bristlefrost- how can you not like her as you said? The one problem I have with her is that I think she’s a bit overrated.

    I HATE BRAMBLESTAR! No offence, but he’s so annoying all ‘no this is reasonable’ and YOU IGNORE YOUR MATE! Really, you may be better than Hawkfrost, but you are still rotten in my opinion.
    I like Jayfeather a lot as well, but he’s so snappy. That’s the one problem that he snaps at literally EVERYONE and then falls for Half Moon, the random cat. At least go with someone from your time!

    My only one I disagree with is Firestar. He’s a good character and everything, but he’s so overrated and kinda annoying (no offence). I don’t like how he acts so wise but he’s not. And how he’s in like EVERY prophecy or interferes with them in the first four series.
