""Too many omens. Three cats poisoned, two only whiskers from StarClan, Leopardfoot nearly dead, her three kits hanging on to life like rabbits in a fox den. Why such a difficult birth for the Clan leader's mate? The kits may not make it through another night. The tom is too weak to mew, let alone feed. I should help them, and yet how can I when the signs are clear?""

HistoryEdit

Bluestar's ProphecyEdit

Goosefeather is first mentioned by Bluestar, in the Prolouge, while she is drowning, remembering his ominous prophecy; Water will destroy you.
He is mentioned for the first time when Bluekit speaks to Mumblefoot. The elder speaks of him as a lazy Medicine Cat who makes his apprentice, Featherwhisker, do all the work. He mentions that he'd had seen Featherwhisker out collecting herbs, and Goosefeather fast asleep.
He later appears speaking with his sister, Moonflower, Bluekit, and Snowkit after the kits had met their father for the first time, Stormtail. He explains his job in the Clan, and who he basically is. When Snowkit mutters something that Mumblefoot had said, he would like to hear more but Bluekit silences her. He says his sister Moonflower is "The smartest cat in the Clan," But sneaks a look at Stormtail saying "About most things anyways." Suggesting that he does not favor his sister's choice of mate.
He is next seen interpreting a sign from StarClan, shown by a vole's fur parting down the middle, showing that ThunderClan will be destroyed by WindClan. The clan is left wondering about this, later to be led into battle by their leader, Pinestar. When Moonflower dies in that battle, he is shocked, and defends himself from the blame of his Clanmates, saying he was only interpreting StarClan's signs.
He's briefly seen at the Gathering, sitting beside his apprentice, Featherwhisker.
When Leopardfoot is kitting, he is seen poking through the Fresh-kill pile, searching for omens. His clanmates yell at him to stop, suggesting that they are starting to find Goosefeather turning a bit insane, but he continues to do so. Later, after Leopardfoot's kitting, he yells at Tigerkit saying that he is evil and will do no good to the clan.
When he is alone with Bluefur, he tells her a prophecy. "Like fire, You will blaze through the forest." He warns her that even fire can be destroyed by water. Bluefur takes this as more nonsense from Goosefeather, along with Snowfur, but later she takes it to heart.
He is noted to die on the first snow of Leaf-bare, just as he predicted.
