We know you’ve all got some Warriors-related questions you need answered. Who was Snowtuft? How many kits did Mousefur have? What did the original ThunderClan camp look like?

If so, this is the page to ask!

We’ve dusted away some leaves and made a home in this part of BlogClan territory for you to ask these kinds of questions. We’re positive there will be an expert hanging around here with the answers you seek.

Just remember: if it is not written, it is not canon.

Feel free to post your questions in a comment below, and wait for your answer!

This page is focused on published books, so we ask that people avoid asking questions about future books or anything else unknown on this page. Kate will not answer questions about future storylines on this page – no exceptions, we’re afraid to say!

Hey Experts, I have two quick questions.
At what age do cats retire in warriors?
And at what age do cats die in warriors?

1. Retirement is tricky in warriors. From what I last heard, some warriors retire around eight years, but this presents several issues. First of all, some retire younger, and second of all, some refuse to retire, as in the case of patrol guy Thornclaw. There doesn’t appear to be a concrete set age for retirement. There’s also the issue of them living forever, like Graystripe. Graystripe has spent multiple arcs in the elder’s den when he seemingly could still be doing warrior duties. Purdy lived for SEVERAL ARCS in the elders den ever since the new prophecy when he was introduced as an “old cat”. This also introduces confusion about the future, such as other cats getting older. Whitewing is approaching the age where she might need to go into the elder’s den…with her parents still alive in there…which doesn’t really make sense.

Cats die when the plot needs them to. They can live very short times or very long times.

Thanks Viper, this has helped a lot. I’ve always been confused about when warriors retired and when they died.

I have a question. How old was Dappletail when she died because she is a warrior Tallstar’s Revenge, Yellowfang’s Secret, Pinestar’s Choice and an apprentice in Bluestar’s Prophecy and Crookedstar’s Promise. Is it just me or did Dappletail live way longer than she should have?

According to the warriors wiki she was 108 moons old or nine years at death.

The oldest warrior might be Thornclaw aka Patrol guy, since he has been a warrior since Darkest Hour.

Greystripe for sure. He was there in Into the Wild and he made it through four series.

Hey Experts! I’m a little confused about the apprentices and the mentors. When do you become an apprentice and when do you become a mentor?

Hiiii! Are you talking about the blog or the warriors books?

Warriors Books:
You become an apprentice at six moons (months) old.
You may become a mentor as soon as you become a warrior, depending on if your leader thinks you’re ready!

BlogClan:
You become an apprentice when you’re in middle school or the international equivalent based on age.
You become a mentor if/when you want to, as a warrior. You become a warrior when you’re in high school or the international equivalent based on age!

Go to the Allegiances Page and look around! Ask available mentors and maybe talk a bit aobut your hobbies and interests. Remember to ask Cheetah to put you on her list of available apprentices so they know you’re there!

Well, Crookedstar probably wouldn’t have existed, therefore none of his or his brother’s family cause Oakheart wouldn’t have existed either.

I’d say that if nobody managed to kill her she could have lived through Pinestar’s leadership and maybe into Sunstar’s. But she would probably die of old age sooner or later with a kill streak of 20 cats or something so half the cats would be in trouble, half them would be dead.

What were the exact terms of Crookedstar’s promise to Mapleshade? He promised to be loyal to his Clan above everything else in exchange for what? I ask for a fanfiction I’m writing.

Cause she never fell in love? Cats can choose that stuff and she just didn’t feel like it. She just never fell in love with somebody. They don’t have to have kits if they don’t want.

I think it said somewhere that “her heart had always belonged to Redtail”
Meaning she loved Redtail

But Redtail loved Brindleface who loved Whitestorm who loved Willowpelt who loved Patchpelt who loved Robinwing who loved Fuzzypelt. Man, cats are never loyal to one mate.

Howdy there Birchkit. BlogClan actually goes by an age/grade scale to determine your rank in the “Clan”. You might be about old enough to be listed as an apprentice though as mentioned previously, it is determined by your school grade. If you’re in sixth grade now or in middle school, congrats, you’re an apprentice. If not, you’ll have to wait a short while. Here’s a resource too to help you further just in case you need/would like it: https://blogclan.katecary.co.uk/mainallegianceform/ And just remember that just because you might be a kit now, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy everything BlogClan has to offer. 🙂

if you’re a middle schooler, you’re an apprentice.
but if you’re an elementary schooler, you’re a kit.
