  • Sadly I only had my familiar for about 2 years, then he passed from medical complications.

  • i have one, my black cat. he used to be my brother's until his step daughter nearly killed him. as soon as my mom brought him over i just knew there was something special about this cat. every where i go he is there, and is more than happy to lay on or under my alter when tryin to work spells.
    i have a question for you OP, do you have a sense of telepathy with yours, not sure how to explain it, but its like i know what this cat is thinking. i know for those who dont have a familiar or heard of one its sounds completely insane

  • I personally don't have any-one familiar...I do have 4 cats, one who does approach
    and sits with me while I bring out my herb basket, but usually they just lay around ...LOL...
    I have heard of entities being a guide for those who work the Craft, but I have not met
    someone with one or have had one/felt one myself...

  • I have never had one. And honestly don't see myself ever having one either. I'm not a "pet" person, and at some point you have to "clean the cage" even for magickal friends... Plus, I'm allergic to just about anything with fur.

  • I don't think anything about it. I have no experience with familiars, so I don't have an opinion one way or another...

  • I've had one. He was a beautiful gray cat and his name was Acie. He literally was my animal soulmate. He could read my moods better than my hubby. I have three kitties and a dog now whom I am very close to but none like Acie and I am not looking for one.

  • I think if you feel drawn to have one then go for it but I dont think they are necessary. I dont have one and dont see having one in the near future either.
