    Fanfic reviewer

    Getting better...slowly. Now I think this is with the clans from the books...right? Does this mean the same cats might appear? Please give a bit more information on what the kit is thinking and who she is, e.g. 'she pulled away from the strange cat. Who was it and what did they want with her? Then again, being with a cat like this might be safer than wandering for something to try and eat her....' Hope the example helps. Also...one more goof. Probably unintended...it's spelled 'visible' not 'visable'...don't mean to be nitpicky but just pointing it out....anyway, it's not too bad. Room for improvement, but doing better than I thought it would. Keep writing!
