"He fell asleep at last, but his dreams all carried the same scent, until he finally dreamed of his days as a kit. He remembered lying besides his mother's belly, curled in a bed softer than any forest moss with his brothers and sisters."

Nutmeg is a brown-and-white tabby she-cat[1] with hazel eyes.[2]


She is mentioned, although not by name, when Firepaw confirms to Yellowfang that both of his parents are kittypets.

Later she is not mentioned by name again, but Fireheart dreams about when he was still a kit, lying beside Nutmeg and his siblings.

The next morning, he thinks about her when he sees Brindleface picking up her kit when it falls and putting it back on its paws, wondering if his mother would have done the same for him and his siblings. When Fireheart first speaks to Princess, he asks where their mother is, and Princess tells him that she is still with her housefolks. She also tells him that their other siblings live in the same Twolegplace that she does and that Fireheart once did, also that she sometimes sees them in their gardens.

Later Nutmeg has a dream about her ginger son, sitting on a huge rock out of her reach; tall and proud. She called to him, but he did not respond to her.


  • Nutmeg doesn't know about Firestar becoming a wild cat.[3]
