Mistlekit is a dark tabby[3] she-cat.[blog 1]


In The Prophecies Begin arc

Fire and Ice

Mistlekit is a ThunderClan kit, and is the daughter of Speckletail. Although not named, Mistlekit lays on a nest of moss in a bracken at the edge of the clearing of the ThunderClan camp. Yellowfang, the medicine cat, tries to persuade her to eat some herbs. Mistlekit sniffs, and blinks at her with runny eyes, revealing to Fireheart that she has whitecough.
Yellowfang thanks Fireheart for bringing a mouse for her, and asks Fireheart to persuade Mistlekit to eat her medicine. Mistlekit coughs as Fireheart approaches, and gently pushes a small bundle of herbs towards the kit. He tells her if she wants to be a warrior she'll have to get used to swallowing these herbs, and when she makes her trip to the Moonstone she'll have to eat herbs far worse.
She looks at Fireheart with half-closed eyes, and Fireheart urges to think of this as practice for when she becomes a warrior, convincing Mistlekit to reach forward and take a tentative mouthful. Yellowfang, now finished with the mouse Fireheart brought before, compliments Fireheart, and they both leave the kit alone.
Swiftpaw also falls ill and lays beside Mistlekit. In the end, Mistlekit and Swiftpaw recover from whitecough and abandon the oak they were once in.
