Hello! Callie is such a cutie!! I’ve always been more of a cat person than a dog person (although I love all animals).

Here is my familiar, Lord Nibbler (or Nibs), after the Futurama character. He can be judgy, lol.

@ASHLEY.HPs , how adorable — how did you realize your cat was your familiar and how long?

Here’s mine, meet Mitten:

I :heart_eyes_cat: :heart_eyes_cat: Mitten!!

While you didn’t ask me, I wanted to share my experience.

I’ve read that familiars choose their witches and will find their way to them. Nibs’ story is quite a tale. He was found in the middle of a busy street by the wife of someone higher up than me in grad school. She brought him to her husband at school one day, asking if anyone wants a cat. I didn’t know this student then, but one of my friends was rotating in the lab he worked in. She overheard and was, “I think Jessica would like one.” I had never mentioned wanting a cat to her, so her saying this was weird to me at the time. They bring the cat to me, and I knew right then he was mine.

He was this tiny, sickly thing, but he crawled out of the carry right into my lap and went to sleep. :revolving_hearts: :revolving_hearts: I took this to be that he was my soul animal. I was not practicing then, so I didn’t put two and two together until a few months into my practice.

The first clue was that he always comes and sits with me when I’m crafting and is not bothered in the slightest by anything I do. While he is curious about my altars, he is careful not to disturb them (unlike my other cat and dogs, whom I have to physically block off from, lol). And as I’ve come into my power, I feel a very strong connection with him, as if we know what the other is thinking. He also prefers me over anyone else - will even get out of my husband’s lap to come to sit on mine when I get home from work.

What a great story @Amaris_Bane I can tell why you bonded to him so well and how much you mean to each other! Nothing like that bond to an animal when you are the animal’s sole ‘human’. With that responsibility comes great power :). I have very same bond to Mitten. I just love her.

Nibs is such a handsome dude now, all back to health and part of your practice that’s the best story ever, thank you for sharing it with me (us)! :brown_heart: :kissing_cat:

This was what he looked like when we first got him! He was a hot mess express!! He had fleas and a severe respiratory infection that had lasting effects. This is still his favorite way to lay - across my stomach.
