"You have sacrificed so much. And our Clan walks a safer path now. With this life, I give you pride, so that you may know your own worth and the worth of your Clan. Thank you for raising Whitestorm. It was easier to leave him knowing that he had you. You were chosen long ago, and StarClan has never regretted its choice."
— Snowfur granting Bluefur her last life in Bluestar's Prophecy, page 503

Snowfur is a white she-cat[2] with gray-tipped ears[8] and blue eyes.[2]

Snowfur was a ThunderClan queen under Pinestar and Sunstar's leaderships in the forest territories. She was the sister of Bluestar, born as Snowkit to Moonflower and Stormtail. As an apprentice, Snowpaw fell in love with Thistlepaw, and when they became warriors, Snowfur and Thistleclaw had one son: Whitestorm. However, Snowfur was killed on the Thunderpath while still caring for their son in the nursery, and when she went to StarClan, Snowfur took in her sister's deceased daughter, Mosskit.

"She’s already gone. There’s nothing you can do [...] It was her time. I’ll take care of her in StarClan."
—Snowfur to Bluefur after Mosskit dies Bluestar's Prophecy, page chapter 41
In Bluestar's Prophecy, Snowkit and Bluekit are born to Moonflower and Stormtail. They become apprentices with Snowpaw being apprenticed to Sparrowpelt, but not long after, their mother is killed in battle, leaving the sisters devastated. She falls in love with Thistlepaw, much to Bluepaw's displeasure. After both she and Thistleclaw become warriors, Snowfur gives birth to their son, Whitekit, but she is tragically killed on the Thunderpath before he is apprenticed. After her death, Bluefur occasionally hears Snowfur speaking to her from StarClan, and sees her spirit alongside Moonflower when she meets Oakheart at Fourtrees. The ghostly warrior appears to Bluefur when Mosskit dies, taking the kit to StarClan.

Detailed description

Snowfur is a soft[9] and thick-furred,[10] fluffy,[11] snowy[12]-white she-cat[2] with gray tipped ears,[8] long legs,[13] and bright,[14] azure[15]-blue eyes.[2]


Author statements

  • When asked whether Snowfur still loves Thistleclaw, despite him being in the Dark Forest, Kate says that a part of her will always love him.[16]
  • When asked about a fan theory regarding Mapleshade being the cause of Snowfur's death, Vicky said it may be true and wished she had thought of it before.[17]
    • In the same comment, she said she also likes the idea of Snowfur and Bluestar being related to Mapleshade.[18]


  • She was mistakenly called Leopardkit.[19]
  • In Secrets of the Clans, Snowfur mentions that her son had just left the nursery when she died.[20] This is false, however, as Whitekit was still a young kit still living in the nursery when she died.[21]
