Molewhisker is a black tom.[1]


Molewhisker is a young warrior when he and his friends, Snaketooth, Lightningpelt, and Nettlepad, dare each other to do very dangerous things almost every moon. He himself tore out one of his claws when some cat dares him to jump across the river.

Later when Snaketooth gets injured, Molewhisker is the first cat to come into the camp, and is followed by the injured warrior and their other friends. When Snaketooth lies in his nest in the medicine cat den, Molewhisker and his friends come in and visit him, telling Snaketooth that he must be better by the full moon because they are planning to jump across the gorge.

Molewhisker claims that the older cats aren't brave enough to jump the gorge, unlike them. It may be because the older cats are wise enough not to.

Upon hearing this, their medicine cat, Meadowpelt, intervenes. Molewhisker and his friends are told the next night that they must sit a silent gil|vigil and guard the camp. He is confused, as this had never been done before. However, during his vigil, a fox attacks, and he and Lightningpelt chase it off. Molewhisker is extremely proud of himself for chasing it away.

He learns that his Clan needs him after their night of listening, and what an important position he holds. Molewhisker promises that he won't do anything unnecessarily dangerous, and will be an honorable warrior from now on.

Eventually, the act of sitting vigil one night as a warrior like Molewhisker and the other warriors did became a part of the Warrior Code.
