|Living:||The Tail of a Friend|
Cloud is first seen in the prologue, having moved into the Twoleg Nest near WindClan territory. She dreams of catching a mouse, and sees three strange cats. These cats are Lavenderwish, Tallstar and Barkface from StarClan.
She is next seen as an intruder. Leopardclaw tells her to go away, but she refuses and ends up in a fight. She gives Leopardclaw a scar, and recives a torn ear. She flees back to her kittypet nest.
Leopardclaw and Webstar discuss the situation with Cloud, and Webstar tells Leopardclaw that if Cloud is part of the prophecy, she must be invited into the Clan. Leopardclaw sees Cloud again, and they tell each other their names. Cloud then disappears before Leopardclaw can invite her to join WindClan.
Cloud later decides to join the Clan when Leopardclaw asks her. She is greeted into the Clan with some resistance, but is still accepted, adopting the name Cloudpaw. She removes her collar herself, proving loyalty to the Clan.
