The unfortunate fact of the matter is that, much to feline annoyance, other predator animals exist. Cats love to think they’re the center of the universe, but badgers and foxes interrupt that fantasy. As a result, there’s always been tension between cats and the rest of the meat-eaters, interactions curt and opinions somewhere between rivals and wary neighbors one does not speak to unless it’s necessary. What does a weasel have to say to a cat, after all?
Well, WindClan would say, a great deal of things. Just pay attention for once.
Past the farm pressed against the border of WindClan territory is a patch of land, lined by trees and scrubs with a clearing large enough to comfortably host sot animals of varying sizes. This land is a meeting ground for all walks of life – foxes, stoats, eagles, buzzards, badgers, even stray dogs and cats, to name a few. These meetings are always intended to be friendly and peaceful, a good time for scholars to swap stories or vagabonds to rest their weary heads, comfortable with the knowledge that they won’t be attacked in their sleep.
Generally, the Clans are not invited to this meeting ground, called “Carrefour”, as so many places like it are. The Clans largely don’t mind; most of them don’t even know it exists or has a name. However, WindClan is a regular visitor, and a welcome one at that. Their favored method of body disposal is to bring the corpse to the Carrefour and leave it for scavengers and the otherwise hungry to find. While absolutely coldblooded to the rest of the Clans, this regular offering has forged a friendly relationship with outsider animals. The quickest way to one’s heart is through the stomach, after all.
The rewards for such a dark ritual are plenty: news of traveling groups brought to WindClan’s door before anyone else knows, protection from more aggressive predators who don’t know of the moor-cats, allies in times of conflict (a hungry animal will go after a living cat too, you know, and there sure are a lot outside the hill), and stories and histories one cannot hope to learn while living in the territories. The last benefit is the most minor to WindClan, but scholars are always happy to tell a curious apprentice about this unusual species of bird that lives at the edge of the world or a story deer tell to each other to justify leaving their own to die as soon as something startles them. Such apprentices do not come along very often, so they're as much of a treat as a body is.
Because of this bond between predators, WindClan is thoroughly versed in Fang, the common tongue of meat-eaters. Not only is it a good bragging point to be bilingual (were WindClan ever to brag), speaking to a hostile fox or eagle in a way they understand has saved a good many lives and even forged a few friendships. Like their old burrows and tunnels, WindClan keeps their fluency to themselves, only teaching other Clans a few words that would be absolutely necessary to learn, in the event that a predator ends up invading a territory.
That’s probably for the best. The other Clans see no purpose to learning any Fang to begin with. That can be quite helpful when WindClan needs outside assistance in a war.
