"I tried as long as I could, licking and licking her, but her breathing only got shallower and shallower, until finally it stopped altogether. [...] I buried my nose in her fur, feeling grief crash down on me. It was a clear sign from StarClan. These kits should never have been born."
Yellowfang's feeling after her kits are born in Secrets of the Clans, page 68

Wishkit is a pale ginger tabby[4] she-cat.[2]


In The Prophecies Begin arc

Fire and Ice

Yellowfang confesses to Fireheart she had kits. She explains there were three kits in her litter, and all but Brokenstar died. She believed her punishment was losing her two kits for breaking the warrior code, but in the end, her punishment wasn't that her two kits died, it was that Brokenstar survived.

Yellowfang's Secret

"These are the kits I saw in the pool, when I was in StarClan with Silverflame. But they should never have been born."
―Yellowfang's thoughts when she sees her dead kits in StarClan Yellowfang's Secret, page 321
Yellowfang gives birth to three kits in the hollow of a dead tree, two she-kits and a tom. While the tom, Brokenkit, lets out an angry wail when his mother touches him, one of the she-kits is utterly still, born dead. Yellowfang's other she-kit was born weak and soon died. Yellowfang buries her two dead daughters deep in the ground, so no fox, badger, or cat would ever find them.
As Yellowfang visits StarClan, she meets her grandmother, Silverflame. Yellowfang asks if Silverflame knew about her kits all along, and Silverflame replies that she had. On the night Yellowfang had become a medicine cat, Silverflame had seen three kits behind her. As Silverflame starts to fade, Yellowfang calls out, asking her if her kits were in StarClan. Silverflame doesn't reply but Yellowfang looks around, finally seeing her kits. She tries to run towards them, but her legs are useless, and she soon wakes up back at the Moonstone.

The Ultimate Guide

Although not mentioned by name, Wishkit appears briefly on Raggedstar's page. Yellowfang decided to become a medicine cat, which means she had to separate her relationship with Raggedpelt. It was too late to untangle their paths though, as Yellowfang soon found out she was expecting kits. Raggedpelt was overjoyed at the prospect at becoming a father, but outraged when Yellowfang said their kits will never know who their mother was. Only one kit, Brokenkit, survived.
She is also mentioned not by name on Sagewhisker's page. Sagewhisker realized that Yellowfang was expecting Raggedstar's kits and wondered if she made a terrible mistake. She persuaded Yellowfang to tell Raggedstar that their kits will have at least one parent in the Clan, and Yellowfang took her mentor's advice.
