"I mean that Squirrelflight once lied to every cat, pretending her sister’s kits—her sister the medicine cat’s kits—were hers. She lied on purpose and she lied for moons. If you can overlook that, then you can overlook us crossing a border without realizing."
— Spotfur to Bramblestar's impostor in The Silent Thaw, page 114

Spotfur is a cool gray[4]-and-white[blog 1] spotted tabby she-cat[1] with blue eyes.[4]

Spotfur is a ThunderClan warrior under Bramblestar's leadership in the lake territories. She was born to Cinderheart and Lionblaze as Spotkit, along with her siblings Snapkit and Flykit, and had three older sibings; Fernsong, Hollytuft and Sorrelstripe. She was renamed Spotpaw and was apprenticed to Leafshade. Afterward, she earned her warrior name of Spotfur, and began to develop a relationship with Stemleaf.

A Vision of Shadows

Spotkit and her littermates, Snapkit and Flykit, are part of Lionblaze and Cinderheart's second litter. She often plays with the kits of her older brother, Fernsong, and becomes good playmates with Bristlekit, Flipkit, and Thriftkit, as well as Blossomfall's litter. She later becomes an apprentice with her littermates, her own mentor being Leafshade.

The Broken Code

"Maybe we shouldn't be touching the Moonpool. I wouldn't want to upset any cat ... dead or alive."
—Spotfur about breaking the ice on the Moonpool Lost Stars, page 190
She is now a warrior named Spotfur. Stemleaf desires to be her mate, to which Bristlefrost, who has a crush on him, feels jealous over, but she comes to respect Spotfur as a loyal and dedicated warrior. She becomes concerned with the way Bramblestar's personality changed after his revival, and is adamant on outing codebreakers. While on patrol with her father and Bristlefrost, she and Lionblaze cross the WindClan border on accident. Bristlefrost informs Bramblestar who forces no cat to speak to Spotfur for a whole quarter moon, and banishes Lionblaze for the same duration. Spotfur attends a secret meeting between the Clans and learns that her leader is an impostor, and the real Bramblestar a ghost.
