INJURIES

Wounds

Wounds are injuries when the skin and the muscles beneath are torn, cut, or punctured. They may put a cat's life in danger due to blood loss, infections, or the damage of the organs. Wounds are the most common injuries, due to the nature of the cats often fighting rival Clans, or enemy animals such as badgers, foxes, or dogs.

Minor wounds heal on their own in no time, but severe wounds must be treated by a medicine cat. This treatment includes cleaning it thoroughly with the tongue, stopping the bleeding by pressing cobwebs or moss on it, and applying poultices to prevent infection and help it to heal.
Herbs used in the poultices often include goldenrod, marigold, burdock root, or (in the case of rat bites) wild garlic.
If the wound becomes infected, chervil or horsetail is used as well. The pain can be eased with poppy seeds or willow bark.
---------------------------------------

Sprains

Sprains are injuries to ligaments of a joint, caused by being stretched beyond their normal capacity and possibly torn. It causes severe pain and decreased ability to move the joint.

The cat must rest for several days.
---------------------------------------

Joint Dislocation

Joint dislocation is the displacement of a bone from its normal joint.

Medicine cats treat this condition by first feeding the patient poppy seeds to make them sleepy so they don't feel it as much, and then forcing the limb back into the joint.
---------------------------------------

Cracked Pads

The paw pads may crack while walking long distances on hard surfaces, or due to cold weather. Elders are especially prone to this condition.

It is treated with a poultice of coltsfoot or yarrow.
Dock leaf poultices are also used to cool cracked pads.
---------------------------------------

Broken Bones

A broken bone is usually the result of an accident, such as falling down from a high place or being hit by a monster. Cats most often break their legs,and while medicine cats try to bind the bone with cobwebs, the injury usually results in the cat remaining crippled for the rest of their life.

A more severe injury is when a cat breaks their backbone. This results in the cat being unable to feel or move parts of their body. If the break is bad enough the cat will be killed on or shortly after impact.

OTHER HERBS TO KEEP IN THE MEDICENE DEN

ONLY use these herbs for self-defense against a cat who is a danger to all the Clans, or if a cat from your own Clan asks for a quick, painless path to StarClan while on his or her deathbed.

Holly Berries: A poisonous berry. Cats die almost instantly if they are consumed. If consumtion if not intentional, use yarrow to get the berries out of the cat's stomach.

Deathberries (Yew berries): A posionous berry. Cats die almost insyantly if they are consumed. If consumtion is not intentional, use yarrow to get the berries out of the cat's stomach.

The berries listed above can also be used as traps for dangerous predators. (Snakes, moutian lions, foxes, badgers, ect.) Stuff a piece of fresh-kill with these berries and set it near the pedator's den. They will die quickly and painlessly.

APPOINTMENT AND EDUCATION

Kits who wish to become medicine cats are apprenticed at the age of six moons to the Clan's current medicine cat.

They are introduced to StarClan as a medicine cat apprentice at the first half moon after they gain apprenticeship.

They earn their name at the Moonstone or Moonpool after successfully completing their training, assuming full responsibilities even while their mentor is still alive.

While there are usually two medicine cats at most, this is not always the case, and there may even be three at one time.

Most of the time, a medicine cat's training takes longer than normal warrior training.

When an apprentice, the mentor (or full medicine cat), has them do tasks that prepare them for being a full time medicine cat. The apprentice has to gather herbs, get water, or do other useful things. They are expected to watch carefully when their mentor is treating a cat, so that when the time comes, they can do it, too.

TAKING CARE OF YOUR HERBS

Here is how a medicene cat should keep their herbs fresh and useable.

1. If any herbs are wet, leave them out in the sun until they dry.

2. Gather fresh herbs when your stock gets low.

3. Leave enough of the herb on the plant you use for gathering it so it can reproduce

4. Check your store often and throw out old herbs or herbs that have lost their healing qualities.

ALSO/TRIVIA

CONTAINS SPOILERS (FACTS THAT CONTAIN SPOILERS ARE WRITTEN IN ITALICS AND WILL HAVE AN EXCLAMATION MARK IN FRONT OF THE FACT NUMBER)

1. It is also revealed in Night Whispers that ShadowClan trains their medicine cats to fight like warriors, and ThunderClan medicine cats occasionally train their apprentices some fighting moves, such as Cinderpelt training Leafpaw.

2. Featherwhisker was also taught to hunt for prey even though it didn't follow the basic duties.

3. It is possible that StarClan has a lot to do with cats being born with the ability to communicate with them, and that they are too wise to have too many talented cats born at once.

4. In the Tribe of Rushing Water, the leader and the medicine cat are the same cat, known as the Healer, Stoneteller, or Teller of the Pointed Stones. The leader can receive omens from the Tribe of Endless Hunting, just as Clan medicine cats receive dreams from StarClan.

⚠️ 5. Some cats have been known to exchange their life as a warrior to be a medicine cat (for instance; Littlecloud, Hawkheart, Jayfeather, Mudfur, Mothwing or Yellowfang) while some have life-altering experiences that may cause them to take that path (such as, Cinderpelt) but this is considered to be very uncommon.

⚠️ 6. Though most medicine cats believe in StarClan, a few rare exceptions (i.e. Mothwing), have become medicine cats despite their lack of belief.

⚠️ 7. Medicine cats usually keep their role until they die, with the exception of Goosefeather, Leafpool and Runningnose. However, Leafpool did return to her medicine cat role after the issue of having kits was settled in the very end of The Last Hope, and she was a ThunderClan medicine cat again instead of a warrior along with her former apprentice, Jayfeather, in Bramblestar's Storm.

8. While medicine cats are not permitted to have mates or kits, cats that have previously had and lost a mate may become medicine cats if they choose, even if they still have kits (i.e, Mudfur).
