Near the Nursery grows an extra large sagebrush, its leaves glistening with a hint of blue mixed within the usual gray. This plant protects a very spacious interior and once nests cover the shadowed floor, it becomes apparent that a couple dozen cats can sleep here. The den soon grows warm with the addition of so many bodies and is a very comfortable place to stay. This comfort is well deserved for the cats who sleep here are the protectors of Horseclan. These warriors would gladly die for their fellow clanmates and honor the Warrior Code. In return their clan honors them long after they are gone. So after a busy day of hunting, fighting, and teaching, warriors are welcome to rest under the sturdy branches of this den. ~ Warrior Den, Lilywolf <br> <br>
