To the left of the break in the protective vegetation that encircles the camp stands a large clump of sagebrush. The plant's strong branches shield a spacious area near its base that, when covered with moss, is ideal for queens and their litters. Warm scents of milk often flood out from the den entrance and there is an feeling of peace surrounding this place. Even more importantly, it is the safest den in the camp, growing conveniently next to the Warrior Den. Under the shelter of this silver plant the future warriors of Horseclan will be born. For them this is only a stepping stone and it will not take long for the kits here to yearn for the Apprentice Den. However kithood is to be enjoyed and these little cats will spend many moons happily playing mossball or pretending to hunt and fight while their parents look on with pride. When the day does arrive for the young lives that began here to become apprentices one can only hope their parents will be ready to let them go as well. ~ The Nursery, Lilywolf <br> <br>
