Your cat can not be a medicine cat apprentice. Do not ask members with high positions for HPs or admins for them. You must be a member for 3 months minimum, have had your cat exist for two weeks minimum, and have been active for at least one consecutive week to earn or apply for a High position. Thank you :)
