Forgotten Purrs
The time of ThunderClan, WindClan, RiverClan, ShadowClan and even the Tribe of the Rushing Water have long passed. The old heroes are just legends now, and the Ancient Clans, tales of LionClan, TigerClan and LeopardClan are scarcely remembered. Tales of Clans and Tribes spread from forest to forest, Twolegplace to Twolegplace, and although the rumors quickly spread, the warrior code, the purpose of Tribes and Clans remained the same. Thus, the first leaders came together: Magpiestar, Sunstar, Hollowstar and Mothstar. Although their beliefs and loyalties were divided, they each were strong and proud and knew their destinies: to rule the forest together, to respect one another, and to sacrifice everything for their friends. Now, those leaders, too, have passed, and it's your time to step up an aid in the rebirth of the forest.

For any people wanting to challenge themselves more in roleplay, here is a list of more ailments than in our other list of more basic herbs and illnesses. Recommended for experienced roleplayers only.

  • Aches/Pains: This is also very common. This tends to happen if a cat pushed his/her self too hard in training/hunting/fighting. It can also happen in elders when they simply tend to ache - or a day after a big battle.
    Symptoms: Sore, stiff, and reluctant to move or do anything.
    Best Treatment: Give them some poppy seeds and order them a day of bed rest(if the pain is bad enough).

  • Aching Joints: Very common in Clan elders. Humans call this arthritis. It is caused by cold weather, damp nests, and old bones.
    Symptoms: Joints in the body become stiff and sore. Swelling/inflammation can happen.
    Best Treatment: Burdock root and daisy leaves; nettle leaves and goldenrod

  • Sores: Similar to a bruise, the skin has become raw due to rough activity. It is not a serious injury, but it is best to get it treated.
    Symptoms: Skin is red and raw, cat in pain and stiff.
    Best Treatment: Simply give them poppy seeds and rub the tender area with chewed comfrey.

  • Thorns: This is also common. A cat will have anywhere to a single thorn to more then one stuck in the skin. This very painful!
    Symptoms: Thorn in pad, limping
    Best Treatment: Pull the thorn(s) out immediately!Then treat the wound.

  • Toothache: Toothaches happen when there is a loose tooth, cavity, or gum disease. This best to be treated as quickly as possible.
    Symptoms: Loose tooth/teeth, hole in teeth/tooth, or inflammation of the gums. Pain is present.
    Best Treatment: For cavities it is best they are pulled out while cat is restraint, other two you can just give alder bark/tansy/broom.

  • Torn Claw: In this case the carotene (the part of the claw that contains blood vessels) of the claw has been broken or caught on something. This is very common. Given a few days time this will heal quickly on its own.
    Symptoms: Broken layers of carotene, limping, swelling, pain, some bleeding.
    Best Treatment: Marigold, poppy seeds and cobwebs.

  • Tummy Ache: This is very common . . . most of all in kittens.This can happen if a cat has eaten too much or ate something unpleasant. This can also be a symptom for more serious illnesses too, so double check the facts.
    Symptoms: Aching/Cramping pains in the stomach.
    Best Treatment: Watermint & Chervil Root, Juniper Berries & Poppy seeds.
