"Yes, O Great One, I shall do exactly what you say. And when we come back empty-pawed, maybe you'll admit that I was right."

Bramblestar's mate and Firestar's daughter

Squirrelflight is a flame-colored,[1] dark ginger she-cat[2] with brilliant,[3] forest[4]-green eyes,[2] one white paw, a torn ear tip,[5] and a long,[6] bushy tail.[7]


She and her sister Leafkit are both seen at the end of Firestar's Quest. She was named Squirrelkit because of her fluffy tail and her pelt. Her pelt looks like a squirrel's pelt because it is orange. She is younger then Leafpool as said in Cats of the Clans.


Squirrelpaw was fiesty when she was a apprentice. She usually annoyed most of her Clanmates and had made frenemies with Brambleclaw. When Brambleclaw had a dream about the sun drown place, and sneaked out to meet the other warriors she tracked him to the forest. And when she found out about the dream she made Brambleclaw take her with him. When they began their quest she and Brambleclaw were fighting but nearing the end of the journey they got along better.


She received her warrior name when the clans arrived at the lake. Ashfur loved her deeply, but she rejected him and he, heartbroken, vowed to take revenge on her one day. All his plans failed so he never did. She mated with Brambleclaw, and supposedly "had" his kits: Lionblaze, Hollyleaf and Jayfeather.

Later on, it is revealed Lionblaze, Jayfeather, and Hollyleaf are not her kits, but Leafpool and Crowfeather's. At this Brambleclaw became angry and stopped being her mate. She was a good warrior, and still loved Lionblaze, Hollyleaf and Jayfeather like her own kits. Before the Dark Forest battle, the three told her about the Prophecy, and she and Brambleclaw made up. When the Dark Forest attacked, she fought bravely beside Brambleclaw. When Firestar died, Bramblestar made her deputy. Bramblestar then forgave her.


Even though she "was" supposedly Jayfeather, Lionblaze and Hollyleaf's mother, her milk never came and her kits were given to Ferncloud to take care of. She quickly left the nursery to join the warriors again, later she gets Bramblestar's REAL kits and joins the nursery again. Their names are Alderpaw and Sparkpaw, the other two are unnamed and most likely dead.


After the death of her father, the deceased leader's deputy, Brambleclaw, became leader named Bramblestar. He and Squirrelflight reconciled their relationship, and the two became mates again. At this meeting, Bramblestar names Squirrelflight the new deputy, as there was no cat he trusted more.
