    Maplejay

    She padded to Goldpaw and Jaypaw and their mentors. "Congratulations. Make your clan proud you two." She said. Then the golden brown dappled med cat padded up to Lionwhisker, Suneagle, Jadeheart, and Cyraticpelt. "Welcome to the clan, I'm the medicen cat, Maplejay." She said, her amber eyes warm and welcoming. "And congratulations on getting your warrior name Cryraticpelt." She said. "If have any questions or anything, you can ask any of us or come down to my den." She added.
