Medicine Cat Den

Borage Leaves

Borage Leaves: To be chewed and eaten. The plant can be distinguished by its small blue or pink star-shaped flowers and hairy leaves. Great for nursing queens as it helps increase their supply of milk. Also brings down fever. 

Burdock Root

Burdock Root: A tall-stemmed, sharp-smelling thistle with dark leaves. A medicine cat must dig up the roots, wash off the dirt, and chew them into a pulp, which can be applied to rat bites. Cure infection. 


Catmint (also known as Catnip): a delicious-smelling, leafy plant that's hard to find in the wild; often found growing in two-leg gardens. The best remedy for Greencough.


Chervil: a sweet-smelling plant with large, spreading, fernlike leaves and small white flowers. The juice of the leaves can be used for infected wounds, and chewing the roots helps with bellyache. 


Coltsfoot: A flowering plant, a bit like a dandelion, with yellow or white flowers. The leaves can be chewed into a pulp, which is eaten to help shortness of breath. 


Comfrey: identifiable by its large leaves and small bell-shaped flowers, which can be pink, white, or purple. The fat black roots of this plant can be chewed into a poultice to mend broken bones or soothe wounds. 


Dock: A plant similar to sorrel. The leaf can be chewed up and applied to soothe scratches.


Feverfew: A small bush with flowers like daisies. The leaves can be eaten to cool down body temperature, particularly for cats with fever or chills.

Mouse Bile: a bad-smelling liquid that is the only remedy for ticks, Dab a little moss soaked in bile on a tick and it'll fall right off. Wash paws thoroughly in running water afterward. 


Cobweb: spiderwebs can be found all over the forest; be careful not to bring along the spider when you take the web! Medicine cats wrap it around an injury to soak up the blood and keep the wound clean. Stops bleeding. 

Dried Oak Leaf

Deathberries: Red berries that can be fatally poisonous to kits and elders. They are NOT a medicine. Known to Twolegs as yew berries. BEWARE!

Battle Moves & Techniques 

Back Kick - Explosive Surprise move to catch opponent from behind. Judge opponent's distance from you carefully; then lash out with your back legs, taking you weight on your front paws. 
Belly Rake - A fight-stopper. Slice with unsheathed claws across soft flesh of opponent's belly. If you
re pinned down, the belly rake quickly puts you back in control. 
Front paw blow - Frontal attack. Bring your front paw down hard on your opponent's head. Claws sheathed. 
Front paw strike - Frontal attack. Slice downward with your front paw at the body or face of your opponent. Claws unsheathed. 
Killing Bite - A death blow to the back of the neck. Quick and silent and sometimes considered dishonorable. Used only as a last resort. 
Leap-and-hold - Ideal for a small cat facing a large opponent. Spring onto opponent's back and grip with unsheathed claws. Now you are beyond the range of your opponent's paws and in position to inflict sever body wounds. A group of apprentices can defeat a large and dangerous warrior in this way. It was deployed to a great effect against Bloodclan's deputy, Bone. Watch for the drop-and-roll counter-move, and try to jump free before you get squashed. 
Partner fighting - Warriors who have trained and fought together will often instinctively fall into a paired defensive position, each protecting the other's back while fending off an opponent on either side. Slashing, clawing, and leaping together, battle pairs can be a whirlwind of danger for attackers. 
Play Dead - Effective in a tight situation, such as when you are pinned. Stop struggling and go limp. When you opponent relaxes his grip, thinking you are defeated, push yourself up explosively. This will throw off an unwary opponent and put you in an attacking position. 
Scruff Shake - Secure a strong teeth grip in the scruff of your opponent's neck; then shake violently until he or she is too rattled to fight back. Most effective against rats, which are small enough to throw. A strong throw will stun or kill them. 
Teeth Grip - Target your opponent's extremities--the legs, tail, scruff, or ears--and sink in your teeth and hold. This move is similar to the leap-and-hold except your claws remain free to fight.
Upright Lock - Final, crushing move on already weakened opponent. Rear up on back legs, and bring full weight down on opponent. If opponent does the same, wrestle and flip him under you. This move makes you vulnerable to the belly rake, so requires great strength and speed. 

Elder's Stories

The Cat who Cried Hawk

Once, long ago, there was a young apprentice, named Harepaw, who loved to joke around and play tricks on other cats. He would pounce out of nowhere, scaring the cat he pounced on half to Starclan, put dead mice in his fellow apprentice's nests, and even find a spider and make it fall on his sister, Flightpaw's, head. 

One day, Harepaw was sitting in the camp bored, and decided to yell out "HAWK" and see what would happen. So he did, he yelled out "HAWK" and the clan went into a frenzy, running to their dens and putting the kits in the nursery, when suddenly, the clan's deputy appeared and told the clan to calm down, there was no hawk in sight, it was just another one of Harepaw's tricks. He was scolded and had a punishment of checking the elder's for ticks. 

A few days later, Harepaw decided to do it again, so he yelled "HAWK" and once again, the clan went into a frenzy, only to be stopped by the Clan Leader. Once again, Harepaw had to stay in camp and help the medicine cat with sorting herbs. 

Finally, a few days later, Harepaw was sitting in the camp, again, and saw a real hawk. He went and yelled "HAWK" to the clan, but they looked at him and rolled their eyes. " NO, NO, THERE REALLY IS A HAWK" he screamed, but his pleas did nothing. Soon enough, the Hawk choose his prey, not a kit, not a warrior, but Harepaw, and quickly enough, he was scooped up by the Hawk and taken away. And that is why you should never yell about a danger unless the danger is really there. 

The Greedy Warrior

Once there was a warrior, who lived his life sad and miserable, because he felt he never had enough prey. He always was hunting, and was always dissapointed when he was forced to share his prey with the clan. He followed the Warrior Code, but often didn't like giving away his big fat squirrel to a nursing queen or elder. 

One Day, a cat from Starclan came to him in his dreams and told him that he could have all of the prey he wanted from then on. He was overjoyed at the action from Starclan in his favor. So from that point on, he ate all the mice, and thrush, and voles, and squirrels he could ever want, but as the moons went by, he grew fatter and fatter, and soon no one from the clan wanted to be by him. Then he realized that he spent his days alone, just eating and eating. He said to himself "this is not what I want"

That night the same cat from Starclan came to visit him again, and he pleaded with her,  "Please, I want to be loved again, I don't want to eat all my prey anymore." So the Starclan warrior nodded her head, and when the cat woke again, every thing went back to how it was before, when he was skinny and loved again. From that day on, he always fed his clan first, and wouldn't eat until all the other fresh kill was gone. 

The Apprentice and the Squirrel

Once a young apprentice named Leafpaw was hunting through the ferns when she came across a squirrel. It was stuck in a hole. This was a nice big, fat, juicy squirrel too, and Leafpaw was interesting in catching such a big squirrel to show off, since it would surely feed a queen and her kits. Suddenly, Leafpaw's thoughts were broken by words. 
"Hello" said a voice.
"Who's there?" Leafpaw asked, trying to scent any other cats. 
"Down Here" The voice said again.
Leafpaw looked down into the hole and saw the squirrel looking at her. "Where you talking to me?" She asked the squirrel.
"Why, yes, I was. I was just thinking, maybe you should come down her and catch me, since I am such a nice plump squirrel."
Leafpaw looked at the Squirrel and then jumped into the hole. It was much deeper than she thought. Then, quickly, the squirrel jumped on her head and out of the hole, and it looked back down at her. 
"You think that such a squirrel as I would ever let you catch me? Silly cat."
At this point, Leafpaw realized that she couldn't jump out of the hole, as her legs were not strong enough to make the leap, as the squirrel had done.
She called and called for help, and when a warrior on the dawn patrol the next day finally found her, she was starving and tired, but she was not allowed to sleep once back in camp. For her foolish actions she must clean out the elder's den. And that is why you should always think before you act.
