Hmm… I honestly thought he just died of old age… But now, hearing there's an e-book planned regarding his death, I'm thinking that's probably not the case. It's be a very boring novella, if it were.
I like the idea of him dying from sickness. It'd be cool to see a mercy killing, though I'm not sure they'd put something like that in a kids' series.
I think we can definitely rule out old age, because Ravenpaw's Farewell takes place during Power of Three, apparently, and Dustpelt was still doing fine then.
Eh, each cat handles age differently, just like humans do. Regardless, I don't think Vicky knew when she said it, but she actually said Omen of the Stars for the arc, not Power of Three…so something tells me Ravenpaw is going to be super old.
Or maybe he leaves Barley and goes to the lake and gets hit by a car.
Nah, I kid. Vicky wouldn't do that to Ravenpaw- she loves him too much.
