  • Featherkit is born to Graystripe and Silverstream at Sunningrocks along with her brother, Stormkit.
  • Her mother, Silverstream, died giving birth (blood loss), despite Cinderpaw's efforts to save her, though she and her brother were barely saved by Yellowfang.
  • The kits are taken to ThunderClan to be with their father. They are nursed by Goldenflower, despite the fact she is already nursing Bramblekit and Tawnykit.
  • Soon after, RiverClan begins an argument with ThunderClan, saying that half-Clan kits usually go to their mother's Clan. Graystripe, not wanting to start a fight, takes Stormkit and Featherkit to RiverClan and stays there with them. They are first nursed by Greenflower, and later Mosspelt.
