"They're dead, Crookedstar. They're with Willowbreeze now."
Mudfur to Crookedstar in Crookedstar's Promise, page 477

Minnowkit is a dark gray she-cat.[1]

She is born to Crookedstar and Willowbreeze, along with her siblings Willowkit and Silverkit. After her mother dies from greencough, she and Willowkit die shortly after, leaving Silverkit to be the only remaining kit of the litter.

Crookedstar's Promise

Minnowkit is born to Crookedstar and Willowbreeze, along with her littermates, Silverkit and Willowkit. Just before her kitting, Willowbreeze catches an illness that is later revealed to be greencough. Minnowkit and Willowkit also catch the illness after their mother. However, Silverkit remains unaffected by the disease. Willowbreeze, thinking she will die, asks Crookedstar to help her name their daughters. Crookedstar had planned what he would call the kits while he paced the nursery before his mate's kitting. He reaches out a paw to the darkest kit and calls her Minnowkit, and Willowbreeze echoes her name. The other two kits are named Silverkit and Willowkit.
After Willowbreeze dies, Crookedstar comes into the nursery and lies down with Minnowkit and Willowkit, while Silverkit stays in the elders' den so that she does not catch the illness from them. When he wakes up, Mudfur calmly tells him that his two daughters have died and went to join StarClan with their mother, and Crookedstar believes the deaths were caused by Mapleshade. Because of their deaths, Crookedstar is shocked and grieves for them. Only their sister, Silverkit, survives.
