Crookedstar's Promise

"Willowkit mewled and caught hold of his paw, churning her hind legs against his pad."
—Willowkit holding her father's paw Crookedstar's Promise, page 474
Willowkit is born to Crookedstar and Willowbreeze, along with Minnowkit and Silverkit. During the kitting, Willowbreeze, Willowkit, and her sister, Minnowkit, contract greencough. Brambleberry emerges from the nursery to inform Crookedstar that the catmint she is giving Willowbreeze is doing nothing to help, and says that Willowbreeze wants to talk to him. Willowbreeze wishes to name the kits right then and there. Crookedstar is puzzled at this message. Crookedstar had thought of their names days before while pacing outside the nursery, and names Willowkit in honor of her mother, Willowbreeze. He names Willowkit's sisters Minnowkit and Silverkit. Soon after they are named, Willowbreeze dies from the greencough. Crookedstar goes into the nursery and lies down next to Minnowkit and Willowkit, who also have greencough, whilst Silverkit stays in the elders' den so she doesn't catch the sickness. When Crookedstar wakes up the next morning, both Minnowkit and Willowkit tumble out of his nest. Mudfur comes in and tells Crookedstar that Willowkit and Minnowkit went to join their mother in StarClan.
Later, Crookedstar finds out from Mapleshade that she took the lives of Willowbreeze, Willowkit, and Minnowkit because of his promise he made to her. When he tells Brambleberry this, she tells him it was probably just their time to die, and it's not his fault.
