Cat Cats were exceedingly swift and surely possessed by the Devil. After serving Freya for seven years, the cats were rewarded by being turned into witches, disguised as black cats. This seems to have led to the belief in the Middle Ages that black cats were familiars of witches, and after seven years, became witches themselves. They believed if a black cat crossed your path, Satan was taking notice of you. Butter your cat's feet when you move to keep it from running away from the new house. If a cat crosses or jumps over the coffin, the dead person's spirit will return as a ghost. A black cat is lucky or unlucky, depending on where you live. In Egypt it was believed that a black cat crossing one's path brought good luck. If a black cat walks towards you, it brings good fortune, but if it walks away, it takes the good luck with it. Keep cats away from babies because they "suck the breath" of the child. A cat on board a ship is considered to bring luck. It is almost universally believed that good weather may be expected when the cat washes herself, but bad weather may be expected when she licks her coat against the grain or washes her face over her ears, or sits with her tail to the fire.

The knuckle-bone from a piece of mutton was once thought to be a preventative charm against rheumatism if carried about in the pocket; similarly, a certain T-shaped bone from a sheep's head was believed to protect its carrier from bad luck and evil. A strip of sheepskin on a horse's collar was once used as a prevention against the evil eye, and a rather gruesome method of breaking a curse was to stick a sheep's heart full of pins and roast it at midnight in a room where all doors, windows and openings had been firmly closed. Parts of sheep were often used in folk cures; a sheep's lung was once applied to the feet of a pneumonia sufferer, and was thought to draw the disease downward into itself. People could be wrapped in the skin of a freshly-killed sheep in an attempt to cure an adder bite; children with whooping-cough were thought to be cured by letting a sheep breathe on them.

Show me my spirit animal, My protector and my guide. Show me the power, the beauty, and the grace In the radiant eyes of my guardian's face. Center or ground the spell in whatever manner suits you best. Then fold it up and place it under your pillow before you go to sleep. You should dream of an animal, one with which you are probably familiar. That is your spirit animal, the one animal you will always be close to, will always be dear to you, and you will always be able to become with the least effort. Spell to Find a Lost Cat You Will Need: assistance of a tree, rock outdoor entity cat's favorite toy cat food Procedure: For this spell to find a lost cat or other small pet, you’ll need the assistance of a tree, rock, or other outdoor entity, preferably one in your yard or very near your home. Take one of your cat’s favorite toys and some cat food to the tree. Tell the tree about your pet and that you are concerned because of how long he or she has been missing. Ask the tree if it will help you by providing a beacon for your cat to follow to get home. Leave the cat food near the tree. If a small rock gets your attention, bring it and the cat toy into the house. Keep them near the door. Every time you pass the toy, thank the tree for its help in providing a beacon for your pet. Follow Me on Facebook Katydid's Enchanted Kingdom Home Page Katydid's Full Site Index Spell To Find a Missing Cat 2 Cats, unlike dogs, sometimes go on walkabout. They just wander off to do cat things. This is only a problem for those who worry about them. To get them to come back in a hurry, try this spell. You Will Need: their food bowl and food green candle Procedure: Place some food in their bowl. Light a green candle and place it beside the bowl. Say: My little (name of cat) and gone astray I wish for his/her return today Keep him/her safe from harm But return her/him now back into my arms! Let the candle burn down until your cat returns, then snuff it out. The Cat Spell Oracle You Will Need: If you would divine the future, it is lucky to call upon your cat as an oracle. Frame the question clearly in your mind, then write it down three times. Whisper puss' magickal name to yourself three times three, and speak the question three times aloud. Now, making sure that the door is ajar, call to your cat. Carefully observe which forepaw appears first through the door as she walks into the room. If it is the left paw, a denial is your answer. If it is the right paw, 'yes' is your answer. Having divined this way, ponder the oracle's response. The key to its message, and what will transpire for the best, is within your own heart. Follow Me on Facebook Katydid's Enchanted Kingdom Home Page Katydid's Full Site Index The Mirror, the Cat, and the Moon Love Spell You Will Need: 1 mirror 1 mans silk handkerchief candle matches or lighter Procedure: On May Eve, coax your cat to go with you to a pond or a rushing stream, and take with you a mirror, a man's silk handkerchief, and a white candle with some tinder to light it. When you reach the water's edge, light the candle, hold it up to the Moon, and intone this rune. Say: Lovely Freya, Queen of the Moon Bring my true love to me by the month of June. As the Moon rises, call puss and let her study her wide-eyed face in the mirror for a little while. Then turn your back to the water and hold the mirror aloft so that it reflects the Moon, and also her reflection on the water. Place the silk handkerchief over your face and count the number of Moons which appear in the mirror. If there are but two, a twelvemonth must pass before you are wed, but if there are more, their number represents the months which must pass before you are wed. If your cat is strong in magick, your true love's face will appear in the mirror, as still as the reflection of the Moon, just for an instant.

She's more than just a pet to me-- A beloved member of my family. Grant her a long and healthy life, Free from hunger, pain, and strife, Fill her days with love and light, Gentle hugs and blessings bright, May I treat her with respect and care, And be thankful for the bond we share, Protect her from danger and those who harm, Keep her comfortable, safe, and warm, And grant that we might always be, Content with each other's company. Artemis, Maiden, both fierce and free, Grant these things I ask of Thee!
