Whilst the Warrior Code has seen many changes since Treeclan’s ancestors left the Lakeside, the Medicine Cat Code has remained very similar to that followed in the distant past. Few amendments have been made to the codes originally preserved and taught by the Valley’s first Medicine Cat, Tawnyeye, and none have been abandoned in the many generations since her death. This is a point of pride amongst Treeclan’s Medicine Cats, who view the code not just as a set of rules to be kept, but as a direct link to Tawnyeye herself—and to every Medicine Cat who came before and after her time.

This page holds a complete list of Treeclan’s Medicine Cat Code, and catalogues both the original versions of these codes and the additions and amendments that have been made since Treeclan’s formation. They are organised under three categories; namely: Criteria, Duties, and Relationships.


Rᴇʟᴀᴛᴇᴅ Pᴀɢᴇs


A Medicine Cat must be capable of interpreting signs from Starclan

A Medicine Cat may be of any branch or heritage, as long as Starclan accepts them and they can demonstrate loyalty to their clan and duties.

A Medicine Cat may be trained as a warrior before they become Medicine Cats, but no Medicine Cat may train to become a normal warrior.

All Medicine Cats should have knowledge of basic fighting techniques, and be capable of protecting themselves and their patients should the clan come under threat.


Medicine Cats cannot reject an injured cat, even if that cat is not of their own clan.

Medicine Cats must never discuss dreams or prophecies with normal Warriors. Messages from Starclan are only to be shared with the leader and other Medicine Cats.

A Medicine Cat must do everything in his or her power to save sick and injured cats.
Amendment: A Medicine Cat will prioritise their time, energy, and supplies according to their patient’s usefulness to the clan. Note that this requirement is imposed by non-MC Treeclanner’s, and most Medicine Cats try to prioritise according to need, rather than usefulness.

A Medicine Cat can only retire when their apprentice is ready to take their place.
Amendment: Treeclan must always be served by two full Medicine Cats. As such, a Senior Medicine Cat may retire only when the Junior Medicine Cat and their apprentice are ready to take on more duties, and a Junior Medicine Cat may retire only when the apprentice is fully trained and a Senior Medicine Cat continues to serve the clan.


A Medicine Cat she-cat will not take a mate.

A Medicine Cat she-cat will not bear or raise kits.

Medicine Cats are outside inter-clan rivalries.
Amendment: Medicine Cats will not allow their duties to be affected by rivalries within their own clan.

A Medicine Cat will not allow their personal feelings to get in the way of his or her duties. The Senior and Junior Medicine Cats will work together for the good of the clan, and will not allow their duties to be impacted by in-fighting.

Greymuzzles: Hi there! Have to say it's looking pretty snazzy now - and I especially like the fact that your main menu bar stays at the top of the screen as you scroll down. Much more accessible that way~ Feb 28, 2020 15:56:32 GMT
TDH Staff: Thanks! A recent admin helped with everything. Although, she had to step down bc of the pressure. Feb 28, 2020 21:21:46 GMT
Greymuzzles: Shame she had to step down - but goes that way sometimes. Being staff can be pretty hard work Feb 29, 2020 8:49:16 GMT
