Before you read this, yes I know Warriors is fictional and not like real cats.
Moons is months, correct? So I don't get why a cat has to wait six months to become an apprentice. By then wouldn't they be almost full grown? I mean, six months is a long time! I have 4 kittens right now that aren't even 3 months and they're almost as big as their mother!
I don't get why in Warriors a kit couldn't start training and learning battle moves at 3 moons. Maybe I'm just thinking like Brokenstar, but I don't see how it'd be so bad. I would keep them out of battle at that age of course, but still. I mean, a six month old cat looks like a full grown cat. Not a kitten.
This is one of the things that bug me the most in Warriors and I don't know why. I just don't understand the age limit. Is it maybe because they mature more at that age or something?
