"I'm called Hattie. I've never met a forest cat before. How do you know Smudge?"
— Hattie introducing herself to Firestar in Firestar's Quest, page 75

Hattie is a little[2] brown tabby she-cat[3] with amber eyes.[4]


In the The Prophecies Begin arc

The Darkest Hour

When Firestar goes to visit his sister, Princess, he spots Smudge speaking to a brown she-cat. A door opens and one of Firestar's old Twoleg calls for the brown she-cat. She says good-bye to Smudge, slides under the fence that divides their two gardens, and runs up to her Twoleg. The Twoleg scoops her up, strokes her fur, and takes her inside while she is purring loudly. Firestar then realizes that she is their new kittypet.
At first, he is envious of the she-cat and then comes to the terms that she wouldn't have to catch her food, there would be no risk of dying in battles or sicknesses, and she wouldn't have to face the other dangers that forest cats have to face. She would be friends with the other kittypets including Smudge and her Twolegs would take care of her. Firestar also realizes that she would never know the satisfaction of learning to become a warrior, the thrill of battles, what it feels like to live by the warrior code, and to follow the will of StarClan.

Firestar's Quest

When Smudge and Firestar walk by, Hattie asks Smudge who Firestar is. She introduces herself and asks how Firestar knows Smudge and why he left his Twoleg nest, inviting him to come inside with her. When Firestar responds that he can't, Hattie insistently persuades him, asking if he wants to see more of where he used to live. She seems eager to show Firestar his old home, along with some new plants. The bushes and trees that Hattie is talking about were planted by her Twolegs, and she says that they're good for clawing at. As Hattie talks about what has changed since Firestar left, he starts to wonder about the remnants of SkyClan's old territory.
When Firestar asks if she ever tried to catch the birds that came everyday, she is shocked and horrified at this question. She replies that she wouldn't like all the blood and feathers that came with killing a bird. This annoys Firestar, thinking that a bird could save a cat from starving.
It is also said she loves to sharpen her claws on the newly planted tree in her Twolegs' garden. She is somewhat annoyed when Firestar sleeps in Smudge's garden and not hers, curious of why he doesn't want to sleep in his old home.
When Firestar leaves Smudge's home, Hattie waves good-bye with her tail while balancing on a visible low tree branch in her garden. Firestar waves back and Hattie invites him to come and see her and Smudge again. Hattie then disappears back into the shadows of the trees in her garden.


Interesting facts

  • She refers to her housefolk as Twolegs, although it was revealed in Into the Wild that most kittypets do not know what the term "Twoleg" means.[1]



Hattie: "And that's the bush where birds come hopping after snails. Did they do that when you were here?"
Firestar: "Yes. Have you ever tried to catch one?"
Hattie: "Why would I want to do that? There would be blood and feathers everywhere-ugh!"
—Hattie and Firestar Firestar's Quest, page 79

"Don't you want to see where you used to live? My Twolegs dug up a bush that was so old its roots stretched nearly the whole way across the garden, and planted some new trees that are great for scratching."
—Hattie trying to continue the conversation Firestar's Quest, page 75

"Why does Firestar want to stay in your garden? Why doesn't he want to stay in mine?"
