"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's and Sunstar's leaderships in the forest territories. Snowkit was born to Moonflower and Stormtail alongside her sister, Bluekit. As an apprentice, Snowpaw was mentored by Sparrowpelt and fell in love with Thistlepaw. When they were made warriors, Snowfur and Thistleclaw became mates and had a single son, Whitestorm. However, Snowfur was killed by a Twoleg monster on the Thunderpath, and she ascended to StarClan. She raised Mosskit as her own in StarClan and gave Bluestar one of her nine lives.

In the Super Editions

Crookedstar's Promise

Snowpaw is mentioned by Bluepaw to Crookedpaw, a RiverClan apprentice, when he tells Bluepaw that the new warrior, Oakheart, is his brother and Crookedpaw comments that he is a brilliant hunter. She points out Snowpaw near him, commenting that she is a great hunter also.
Later, she spots Crookedpaw attacking Bluepaw in the battle between RiverClan and ThunderClan. She rushes to Bluepaw's aid, and together, they drive off Crookedpaw. RiverClan then retreats, leaving ThunderClan Sunningrocks. A little bit after Snowfur dies, warriors of RiverClan discuss her tragic death: chasing off ShadowClan warriors on the Thunderpath. While training in the Dark Forest, Thistleclaw says that Snowfur shouldn't have died, and that it was all Bluefur's fault.

Bluestar's Prophecy

"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
Snowkit and Bluekit are born to Moonflower and Stormtail. Snowkit opens her eyes before Bluekit, and is impatient for Bluekit to open her eyes, as she wants to explore the camp. When Bluekit opens her eyes, Snowkit is excited and with permission from Moonflower, the two explore the camp together and meet their older denmates, Leopardkit and Patchkit, who then introduce them to a ThunderClan apprentice, Dapplepaw. Bluekit attempts to sneak away with Snowkit, but Snowkit wants to stay with Leopardkit and Patchkit. Eventually Bluekit convinces Snowkit to help her explore alone. They go into the warriors' den, where they are shoved out by StonepeltPinestar's den, where Featherwhisker catches them, and the elders' den, where Featherwhisker shows them to.
Snowkit is with Bluekit and Moonflower while they are waiting for Stormtail to come visit them for the first time. Snowkit is downcast after Stormtail doesn't show much interest in them, but she cheers up when Goosefeather comes to speak with them. He takes them into the medicine cat's den. Snowkit dares Bluekit to eat a leaf, but Bluekit spits it out. Bluekit then dares Snowkit to eat poppy seeds, not knowing what the herb would do. Snowkit eats two, commenting that they are delicious. Moonflower suddenly appears, furious that Goosefeather didn't watch them while they were playing in his den. She asks Snowkit how many poppy seeds she ate, and Snowkit mutters to her mother that she ate two seeds. Goosefeather doesn't seem very concerned, and replies that Snowkit will sleep off the seeds that she ate, and that she'll be fine. Bluekit tries to defend her sister, saying it was her fault, though it was Snowkit who dared Bluekit in the first place.
A bit later, Snowkit and Bluekit become apprentices. Snowpaw is mentored by Sparrowpelt, and has a more exciting first day than Bluepaw, who has to collect moss with her own mentor, Stonepelt. Bluepaw caught a large bit of prey the next day, which is a squirrel. That night, a Gathering takes place and Bluepaw gets to go. The snowy white she-cat does not, which makes her jealous.
When Goosefeather interprets the omen about the vole's parted fur and WindClan, Snowpaw and Bluepaw are not allowed to fight because they are too young, and instead are the messengers in the battle, helping fetch injured cats out of the battlefield. Snowpaw's mother, Moonflower, is killed by Hawkheart, the WindClan medicine cat, who was once a warrior. Snowpaw is distraught, yelling at her sister, but unlike Bluepaw, she learns to live with the loss in time. Once, when Bluepaw is brooding over Moonflower's death, Snowpaw apologizes to their mentors, saying her sister was in another one of her moods; this slightly angers Bluepaw.
Snowpaw has a growing crush on Thistlepaw, obvious to every cat, much to Bluepaw's annoyance and dislike. Bluepaw finds it hard to admit she is jealous of her sister and Thistlepaw, since she used to hang out with Snowpaw all the time. During a battle for Sunningrocks between ThunderClan and RiverClan, and Bluepaw is struggling with Crookedpaw, Snowpaw helps her and the two fend off Crookedpaw together. When Bluepaw tells Snowpaw about Goosefeather's prophecy about her, Snowpaw doesn't take it seriously, and tells Bluepaw to ignore him. Bluepaw does not react well to her sister's carelessness towards Goosefeather's warnings. Snowpaw seems like she would rather moon over Thistlepaw, and this slightly annoys Bluepaw, as her relationship with Snowpaw's crush is less than admirable. Later, Snowpaw and Bluepaw become warriors, Snowfur and Bluefur.
After Thistlepaw battles off a dog, slicing its nose, he becomes a warrior, named Thistleclaw and soon after, Snowfur becomes his mate. After Sweetpaw dies, Snowfur calls Bluefur to go and take a walk with her. Bluefur asks what was so important as she was about to eat. Snowfur talks about Thistleclaw being a loyal brother of Sweetpaw, and, after several awkward heartbeats, admits she is having kits. After a few moons time skip, Snowfur gives birth to Whitekit, thanks to Featherwhisker and her sister's help.
Bluefur then coaxes Snowfur out into the forest. They talk about RiverClan's greediness for a while. Bluefur confesses she saw a RiverClan cat in their territory. Snowfur demands if she told Sunfall. Bluefur admits, no, she didn't. Snowfur asks Bluefur where her loyalty to ThunderClan has gone, and the blue she-cat angrily replies she is still loyal to her birth Clan. Bluefur accidentally defends Oakheart too quickly, which stuns Snowfur and convinces her that Bluefur likes the RiverClan tom. She runs away, and Bluefur follows her. Snowfur tells her sister to be quiet and says there are ShadowClan cats on their territory. Snowfur convinces Bluefur to attack, and they battle the intruders off. Still angry, Snowfur follows them onto the Thunderpath. She is hit by a monster and dies instantly. The Clan, especially Whitekit and Bluefur, heavily grieves for her. Later, when Bluefur is at Fourtrees with Oakheart, she looks and sees Moonflower's and Snowfur's spirits, watching her with sorrow and pain in their eyes, but they quickly fade away back to StarClan.
When Bluefur leads her three kits, Mosskit, Mistykit, and Stonekit, to Oakheart of RiverClan, Mosskit dies of the cold. Bluefur desperately tries to revive her, but Snowfur comes to her from StarClan, and says it had been Mosskit's time to die. Then, she leads Mosskit's spirit away and the two are talking excitedly together.
When Bluestar receives her nine lives, Snowfur gives Bluestar one of her lives: the life of pride. She thanks Bluestar for raising Whitestorm, and tells her sister that she was chosen by StarClan a long time ago, and that they never regretted their choice. Bluestar remembers her sister's words for moons. She is later mentioned when Bluestar feels her sister's scent around her.

SkyClan's Destiny

When the SkyClan ancestors and StarClan are reunited for a night, Snowfur is introduced to Leafstar by Skywatcher and Cloudstar, along with her sister, Bluestar, and her son, Whitestorm.

In the Novellas

Pinestar's Choice

Pinestar watches as Snowpaw and Bluepaw share a squirrel and thinks that they deserve to become warriors soon. He notes that they have been very brave since the battle that killed their mother.

Spottedleaf's Heart

Spottedkit notes that Snowfur was Whitepaw's mother and died when he was still in the nursery. Spottedkitf thinks that just because Bluefur is Snowfur's sister, it doesn't mean she can boss Whitepaw around. When Whitestorm is made a warrior, Bluefur mentions that Snowfur would be very proud of him.
When Bluefur gives her kits away, Spottedpaw prays for StarClan let them grow up bold, strong and loved. The medicine cat apprentice sees a very faint white shape slip through stalks and Snowfur's voice appears in Spottedpaw's mind, saying they will do their best. She also thanks Spottedpaw for trusting Bluefur. Spottedpaw calls Snowfur's name and asks if that is her, but the StarClan cat's pale shape is gone.

The Ultimate Guide

She is mentioned on Bluestar's page that Snowfur died on the Thunderpath. She is also mentioned on Goosefeather's and Featherwhisker's page that Goosefeather took a close interest of Bluefur and Snowfur because their mother was Goosefeather's littermate.

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 azure[14]-blue eyes.[2]

Trivia

Author statements

  • 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.[15]
    • In the same comment, Vicky said she also likes the idea of Snowfur and Bluestar being related to Mapleshade.[16]

Mistakes

  • Snowfur was mistakenly called Leopardkit.[17]

Continuity

The following information is from sources considered non-canon or retconned.

  • On the Warriors website family tree, Snowfur's grandkits through Whitestorm include Ashfur, Ferncloud, Elderkit and Tulipkit.[18]
  • In Secrets of the Clans, a 2007 field guide, Snowfur becomes a foster mother to her niece, Mosskit, when the kit joins StarClan after she freezes in a snowstorm while Bluefur took her kits to their father, Oakheart. Snowfur comforts Bluefur saying it is Mosskit's time to die and promises to take care of her. The other StarClan cats present agree to let Snowfur care of Mosskit since she misses raising kits.[19]
  • Snowfur also mentions that her son had just left the nursery when she died.[19] This is false, however, as Whitekit was still a young kit still living in the nursery when she died.[20]
