"We don't have to go, do we?"
— Hollykit to Ferncloud about the Great Journey in Dawn, page 74

Hollykit is a brown tabby she-cat with amber eyes.[2]

Hollykit was a ThunderClan kit in the forest territories. She was born to Dustpelt and Ferncloud alongside Larchkit and Birchkit as part of her parents' second litter. During the destruction of the forest by Twolegs, prey became scarce and Ferncloud struggled to produce enough milk. After Larchkit's death, Hollykit succumbed to starvation not long after. She ascended to StarClan and was watched over by her older brother, Shrewpaw.


In The New Prophecy arc


Hollykit is born to Ferncloud and Dustpelt along with her siblings, Larchkit and Birchkit, in their second litter. She appears briefly when Ravenpaw travels to camp, asking Ravenpaw questions about life as a loner when he comes to visit Firestar. When Ravenpaw turns his attention to Ferncloud, she tries to pounce on his tail with Larchkit at her side. She is rebuked by her mother, Ferncloud, who apologizes for her kits' behavior.


Her sister, Larchkit, dies of starvation when their mother, Ferncloud, can't produce enough milk. Ferncloud grieves greatly and refuses to eat, but Dustpelt insists, saying that Hollykit and Birchkit still need her.


Hollykit shows disbelief and sorrow at having to leave the forest and begs her mother, Ferncloud, not to take them away. Not long after, she dies on a very cold leaf-bare night, as she is too thin and weak to make it. She is greatly mourned by Mousefur and her parents, and is soon buried. Ferncloud is distraught, wailing why she couldn't have died instead of her. Soon after, on the same day, her older brother Shrewpaw is killed by a Twoleg monster. Her littermate, Birchkit, is the only kit of her litter to survive.


When Leafpaw discovers the Moonpool, Hollykit is seen playing with her sister, Larchkit, in StarClan. Her older brother, Shrewpaw, nudges the two away from the pool to prevent them from falling in. Leafpaw wants to tell Ferncloud that her kits are happy in StarClan, but then she remembers that medicine cats aren't allowed to tell others what they see in StarClan.


She is mentioned briefly when Squirrelflight feels sympathy for Birchkit, who lost Hollykit and Larchkit.


She is seen by Leafpool at the Moonpool with her sister, Larchkit, her brother, Shrewpaw, and the many other StarClan cats who greet her as the new medicine cat of ThunderClan.
