Apprentices are cats who are not yet apprentices but over the age of six moons.
Medicine cat apprenticesEdit
Medicine cat apprentices are apprentices that train to be a medicine cat. Their mentor is always the medicine cat of their clan and they spend most of their time learning the uses of herbs, only going out for battle practice. When a fight with other clans of animals happens, they wait at camp with their mentor and help all the cats that come back injured. They have to wait until their mentor dies to be a full medicine cat.
