Good Saturday Morning My Beloved Family & Friends!

Yesterday wasn’t one of the easiest days in my life. But I will be the first to admit, that when the cougar did pass it was a relief to me. Don’t think me cruel, please. I was with the cougar from the time we picked him up to the time he passed. When we picked him up, I touched him and the Vet asked me if I thought he would make it. I shook my head no. I could feel then that his injuries were to much for him to recover from. The Vet gave me tons of pain medications to soothe him. Toward the end nothing was soothing his suffering. I try my best to take his pain. I managed for a while but eventually it grew so strong I couldn’t stand it. I was exhausted and I put his head in my lap. He opened his eyes and looked at me. I told him, it was ok to leave this plane now. For him to end his suffering, his tolling was over, he had had a good life, now it was time to go home. With those words, I could see the light slip out of his eyes and feel his last gasp. His spirit was gone. I was weak and wore out but I still cried. He had a beautiful soul, wild and full of wonder. The places he had been, the things he had saw, seeing the world through his eyes was beautiful. The men came in the enclosure and picked me up. Then they proceeded to wrap him up properly and with dignity.  After I had time by myself, I had recovered some. We gave our mighty friend the burial he deserved. He passed on to the Summerlands in peace and comfort. His great spirit is now at rest and in a place where only love exists.

I don’t understand people at times, well most of the time. I would love to be able to walk up to the person that shot the cougar. I would put my hand on their shoulder and give them a taste of the pain that the cougar suffered. If they could feel that pain, they would never pick up a gun for the rest of their life. Perhaps if we could walk up to anyone thinking about killing anything whether it be animal or human and give them a taste of the dying’s suffering, they would change their minds. Put down the guns and never think about killing again. For them to know such pain that they can’t stand, no pain pills or shots will relieve, the only thought running through their head is the thought of just dying. But they can’t, they suffer and suffer. That would be the greatest deterrence against hunting, mass murders and homicides the world has ever seen. A pain that won’t stop, all you can do is wish for death but it never comes. Let those people who pull the trigger know how their poor, helpless victims feel. See how it feels to be on the other end of the gun. Realize what the victim goes through and most of all the people left behind.

Is there no hope for this world? Has it grown that cold and callous? Is there nothing that we can do before the world goes over the brink of insanity? This is our year. It is the Year of The Witch. It is our time to unleash our Powers and do what we are suppose to do. Help mankind in spite of itself. It is our time to make the difference. We have stood idly by and kept quiet, we have seen what a mess mankind has made of the world without us. Now it is our turn to clean the mess up. Time to restore goodness and kindness to the World. Time to let the Goddess’ love shine once again upon us all. Time to show the world what it is like to know Pure Love, Pure Kindness and The Goddess, Herself.

Are you with me?

  1. I agree with Peter, your work with the cougar’s is more than it seems. I’m crying right now for the one that passed, but I rejoice that he was not alone. He had someone with him. He was treated with dignity, he deserved. He did not deserve what happened to him. May the Gods help us to stand strong by your side Lady A. To support your work and move forward with our own. Thank you for being the example. I am so grateful for your you and all the crew at WOC. Blessed Be.


  2. There has to be hope for this world or we will have nothing. Part of my issue with Christians is that they leave it to God to make it better and abdicate the responsibility for making the world a better place. It is true that we live in a violent and cruel world. I wish it weren’t, but it is and always has been.

    What gives me hope? People like you, Lady A. I know that if I can find people like you in my journey, I will not face this world alone. It makes me strive to emulate your example. It makes me realize that there is good in this world and that there are gentle souls filled with love and wonder about the world around them. It also makes me understand that it begins with me. What we can do is realize that we are the change we seek and that through our efforts, our prayer and our worship we try to push back the cruelty and the malevolence. What is important to realize here is that you care about these creatures and you care for them as best you can. That is surely a blessing to this world and helps to balance the scale. In a very true sense, you are a Wiccan Warrior.

    Your work with the Momma Cougar and her kits has become that much more important. Look at those kits and realize they were given to you for a reason. The Lord and Lady gave you those babies to care for and make strong because they knew you would be in a painful place with the loss of the male. They knew you would have a difficult time easing his transition from this plane and wanted to you have new life there as a reminder. Yes, we lose sometimes. But sometimes, we can make something else better. As best you can, you’re making it better. It’s up to the rest of us to get in line and take affirmative actions to make things better. It’s a tall order, but we ask the Gods for help when it gets tough and we cry with each other when we come up short. But we also celebrate the victories when they come and remind ourselves that we are doing it the best we can and that we are not alone.

    Blessed be, Lady A.
