The story of the Graystripe squirrel and her two kits begins with Silverstream in the new territory, telling her husband that she is pregnant. Silverstream is killed in the Kitting Ceremony, but Graystripe carries on with her promise to his mentor, Fang, and gives birth to two kittypets: Bumblekit and Briarkit. Later, Graystripe returns to ThunderClan with her kits, but first stays with the solitary Millie to raise them. In the story, she also tells Fireheart about the attack of Leopardstar, who banishes her from her clan. Fireheart and Fang are also forced to return to ThunderClan and keep the three new kits.
The series begins with the young female kit Sorreltail. Sorreltail is the only daughter of the ThunderClan warriors, Whitestorm and Willowpelt. She was first introduced in The Darkest Hour, when she followed her half-brother Darkstripe to the Death Forest. Darkstripe tricked Sorrelkit into eating deathberries. Later, Sorreltail tells her sister, Firestar, about her experience, which results in his exile from ThunderClan.
The two Kits of Molewhisker and Cherryfall were born almost six moons apart, making them old enough to be warriors. The kits of these warriors ate mice, squirrels, and other mammals. They also ate bird eggs and shrews. Their parents were disloyal, but never punished for their crime. Now, they are considered legends in the Dark Forest.
The fourth Warriors Super Edition series, Crookedstar’s Promise, takes place one generation before the first series. Chronologically, it starts between Yellowfang’s Secret and Bluestar’s Prophecy. In this book, the RiverClan flees to find refuge from a flood, but not before deputy Shellheart has his two kits, Stormkit and Oakkit. These kits are named after the oak tree and storm, respectively.
The tigerstar squirrels are warriors, just like their mother Tigerstar. The kits are named after their parents, but they are also called Squirrel, Leaf, and Moon. After their mother died of injuries, the kits are named after their parents. This is the story of the tigerstar squirrels. These warriors are not only tigers, but also tiger-like creatures.
While Brambleclaw and squirrel are both considered ‘warriors’, they are also secretive about the fact that they have kittens. Squirrel and Leaf would have claimed the kits as their own, but TC would have debated whether to accept the outsiders. Keeping the secret to two cats reduces the chances of it being revealed to the other cat.
