"Of course not! You're such a minnow-brain!"
— Curlkit to Podkit in Mistystar's Omen, chapter 6

Curlfeather is a pale brown she-cat.[2]

Curlfeather is a RiverClan warrior under Mistystar's leadership in the lake territories. She was born to Duskfur as Curlkit alongside her brother, Podkit, after a drought plagued RiverClan. After earning her warrior name, Curlfeather fell ill to a sickness that Willowshine struggled to heal. She gave birth to her kits, Frostkit, Mistkit, and Graykit.


In the A Vision of Shadows arc

The Apprentice's Quest

She and her brother, Podlight, are now warriors.

River of Fire

Curlfeather is one of the cats within hearing range of Willowshine when she thinks about how she wants to tell Mothwing of her vision. She pads alongside the stream and interrupts Willowshine, who is in the middle of telling her mentor about the fight between Owlnose and Jayclaw instead, by turning and vomiting into the water. Curlfeather drinks a little from the stream afterwards before she walks over to the medicine cats with her tail drooping. They note that her fur smells sour from the vomit.
She apologises to them and explains that she'd tried to ignore her aching belly, but began vomiting uncontrollably, and Reedwhisker had ordered her to leave the patrol to see them. Mothwing reassures the warrior, saying they could make a nest for her beside Havenpelt. Willowshine returns with some watermint for her Clanmate as Curlfeather gets into the nest with a groan of pain, and eats the leaves she's been given.
The next day, Willowshine worries about how little watermint is left, thinking about while Havenpelt had recovered enough to go back to the warriors' den, both Softpaw and Curlfeather were still sick, and Mosspelt was even worse than before.

Lost Stars

At a Gathering, Mistystar mentions that Curlfeather has given birth to three healthy kits.

Mistystar's Omen

Curlkit is the daughter of the RiverClan queen, Duskfur, and sister to Podkit. She is first mentioned, though not by name, by her mother, when Mistyfoot announces that RiverClan's elderly leader, Leopardstar, had died during the night of an illness that Mothwing and Willowshine could not treat. Duskfur draws her kits closer to her and says she had hoped that Leopardstar would live to make her kits apprentices.
Later, when Mistyfoot returns to the camp after Dapplenose and Pouncetail show her where they think will be an excellent spot to bury the deceased leader, Grasspelt's hunting patrol had returned with two minnows, and Duskfur tells Mistyfoot to have them, because her kits, mentioned again not by name, can eat later. She is again namelessly mentioned when Mallownose's patrol returns with only tiny minnows, and Mistystar asks if that was all they had, because that would not be able to feed Curlkit, Podkit, and Duskfur let alone the whole Clan.
Curlkit and Podkit are seen playing with each other, Podkit is dragging a twig that he says is a fish toward the nursery to feed the whole Clan, and when he asks if Mistystar really means what she says when she tells Duskfur is he can catch a fish that size, they should make him a warrior soon, Curlkit calls him a minnow-brain, and Duskfur tells her that she shouldn't be rude to her brother. Duskfur tells Mistystar how she is concerned for her own and other queen's kit's safety, after she found Curlkit belly-deep in mud the day before, and suggests that they build a barrier around the stream so that the kits stay safe.
She is last seen when Robinwing brings in a rat he caught, and Curlkit asks if it is a rat, and that she's never eat that, and Duskfur says she should go hungry then, because now is not the time to be fussy about food.

Mothwing's Secret

After Mothwing treats Podkit's cough, she explains to Duskfur that she should stay in the nursery and protect her kits during the Great Battle.

Duskfur: "Don’t be rude to your brother. If you can’t play nicely, one of you will have to go back to the nest."
Podkit: "She started it."
Duskfur: "Tell me it gets better. Some days I feel I do nothing but scold them from dawn until dusk."
—Duskfur and Podkit about Curlkit Mistystar's Omen, page 163

"I found Curlkit up to her belly in mud yesterday by the stream, and I wondered if we could put up some sort of barrier to keep the kits away from the edge of the water. I know it’s inside the boundaries of the camp, but I’d hate for there to be an accident with a very small kit."
―Duskfur to Mistystar Mistystar's Omen, page 164

Curlkit: "Is that a rat? Gross! There’s no way I’m eating that!"
Duskfur: "Then you’ll have to go hungry. This isn’t the time to start being fussy."
—Curlkit and Duskfur about eating a rat Mistystar's Omen, page 165
