Bobcat As A Totem – Keeper of Secrets


Keeper of Secrets


Meanings and Messages: secrecy, lonliness, meditation, trust, loyalty

The bobcat keeps to itself, enjoying a solitary life. Males and females come together for mating purposes in the wintertime but do not live as a family. The loner male is nomadic… and may have several mates stretched out over several different regions. Whereas the females do not wander far from home.

Bobcat has keen senses: seeing, hearing, and feeling. These abilities make the bobcat an excellent nocturnal hunter. Don’t even try to hide your true self or keep secrets from a person aligned with bobcat energies, they will see right through you.

People with the bobcat as their totem do tend to be loners or have a few select friends. They value being isolated from others but need to be careful not to become overly reclusive. They are trustworthy individuals and are often told confidences by close friends and mere acquaintances.


Good Afternoon & Happy Labor Day, Sweeties!

Ahhhhh! I hope you are having a great day. I sure am. I am the only one here today. The peace and quiet is great. I have been into everything I can get into. Did a little of this and a little of that, casted this and casted that, lol! You know typical mischievous Witch stuff! I ain’t been that bad. But you know when everyone else is here and you are the boss, you have to have some dignity about you. It is just nice to have days were you can kick back and do what you want too.

I slept late this morning. When I got up I felt like a new person. My body was so relaxed and I didn’t have a pain anywhere. Oh, it felt so good! I went to the kitchen and made some coffee. I was looking at the window. It had been raining and gloomy as heck. Everything at the house was done. So I decided sitting there would be boring. I got Razzy (“baby” bobcat), put her on her leash and harness and we started out the door. We headed toward the barn. I got the four-wheeler out, picked up the 35 pound baby and put her on the back and started it up. I secure Razzy with her leash and she loves to go 4 wheeling. We took off and came down to the office. It is probably about 4 or 5 miles from my house. So it is a good, enjoyable ride. I get tickled, everyone takes a double take when they look at us. I guess they can’t believe their eyes. But I think everyone around here knows I have a pet bobcat. At least one good thing, that has cut back on the hunters shooting bobcats. Like I would let Razzy run free, yeah, right!

So we got to the office and no one was here! That was the way it was suppose to be, I have the keys.  I would hate to have pulled up and there stood two or three of them waiting to get in. I wanted peace and quiet, I would probably have turned around and went back home, lol! I unlocked the door and Razzy took her usual stop, up on top of the file cabinet. Me, well, I sit down at my computer and just had a terrific time. Heck, I am still having a terrific time. Hubby wanted to go to the Parade but I didn’t want to be around the crowds today. I just wanted to let my mind unwind. You ever get in moods like this? Just say the heck with the world, you need some peace and quiet. I need the peace and quiet, to clear my mind and refresh my spirit. I think people just get too much on them these days. It is good to take a day off and say, “Phooey!”

But I am not going to “Phooey” too much. I am going to do some posting and enjoying doing it. Blogging helps me escape the world. I forget all my troubles and truly enjoy it. Especially when I am by myself. Otherwise, I would have someone running in going, “Hey, I just got this in, want to add it to today’s blog?” Never fails. When I am off in my little world, someone runs in. Well today, it ain’t going to happen and I am going to enjoy this to no end.

I hope you are able to get away and clear your mind and refresh your spirit today.

Have a super, great Labor Day!

Luv & Hugs,

Lady A

Good Tuesday Afternoon, dear friends! Once Again, Please Forgive Me!

Good Tuesday afternoon, my dearies! I am feel I owe you an apology. I am very sorry for yesterday and especially today. Yesterday at the doctor’s office, we spent all day there. The doctor had an emergency, so we sat and sat. We didn’t see the doctor till almost 3:00. I was upset, angry and pissed off. Our appointment was for 10:00. They wanted to know if we wanted to reschedule but it take months and months to get in to see the doctor and hubby said no. Which I wanted to kick him, but…..he knows how he feels and I went along with it. I believe I read every magazine in the waiting room. Then when we did get  to see the doctor, he wanted to run in and out. And it was like, “I don’t think so!” We sit out there for almost 5 hours waiting on you and you are going to sit down and listen to hubby. So the doctor actually slowed down and took time to sit down and listen to him. It amazes me, when we checked in, the first thing I got hit with was, “Well, you don’t have insurance and we need $187.00 upfront before you can see the doctor!”  That was like a slap in the face. I mean really, what has happened to the medical profession. If you don’t have a dollar are they going to let you die? The medical profession has turned into a business instead of a caring profession. Well, I wrote them a check and I ain’t guaranteeing it is going to clear but anyway.

You have to understand why I was so pissed. I have been going to this doctor for 14 years. I have never, ever owed them a dime. When the insurance didn’t pay the full amount on hubby, I paid them promptly. Now they want $187.00 upfront! Thinking about it makes me so mad, I can’t put on here what I really want to say. I ask the lady at the front desk, if they could take payments and she said no. They didn’t take payments from anyone anymore because they weren’t getting paid. That is when I showed my ass. I reminded her that I had been going there for all those years and never owed them anything. I was a prompt pay, a good patient and I had brought my husband to them because I thought he was a good doctor. Well, there are other doctors in town and that will be our last visit to him. I even told the doctor that. He left the room and came back in and handed me my check back. He called me by my first name and told me to make payments to him and pay it when I could. He would take care of the woman upfront. Well, I got over having to wait for him for 5 hours and wanted to hug him. Truth be told, I have been going to him for so long I feel like we are friends instead of patient, doctor. So I would really have hated to switch doctor’s. But after all that, we went to the pharmacy, got something to eat and we finally got home around 5:30 yesterday.

Today, I thought it was going to be normal, HA! I went out to feed all the critters and check on them. I didn’t take time to play with them yesterday, so I forgot the time. About 11:00, I got a phone call from a local vet. He wanted to know if I had room for 4 baby bobcats. A hunter had shot their mother and they weren’t weaned yet. Oh, brother! How could I say no. So I went to the vet and picked them up. I have them on the porch in a box. They are so little and need feeding every two hours. A lot of sleepless nights ahead, lol! but it will be worth it. They are beautiful. My husband told me, don’t get attached, we already have one bobcat we don’t need another one. And Razzy knows they are here. She has walked the floor growling and doing her loud cry that she does. She doesn’t want to play mother, she wants to kill them. She has no motherly instincts at all. When I came back home, she pounced me and smelled me from one end to the other. And then she rubbed all over me and marked me with her scent. She is fixed so she doesn’t know she isn’t marking me. But she still pretends too. So the baby bobcats are here and I have sit up their feed schedule. I have already feed them once and they take the bottle good. So there is a good outlook for them. I just hate getting the ones that won’t take the bottle, you know what is going to happen and you do everything in the world to prevent it. I have a few finger tips that have been gnawed off but the baby lived. So I feel like a few missed finger tips is worth it. I am a huge animal lover and besides my finger tips always grow back, just a little shorter each time, lol!

Well I wanted to explain to you what has been and is going on. I do have good news though. Through it all the store is moving right along. I am in the process of adding merchandise to it right now. At least some is going right, lol! I am going to run for now and get busy.

I hope you understand and have a great Tuesday,

Luv & Hugs,

HAPPY Saturday, dear, dear friends!

Inspirational Comments
 Good afternoon/morning to all! I hope you are having a wonderful day so far. I actually feel like a human today, strange!!! I found the pic as I was browsing through the graphics at Magickal Graphics. And being a cat lover, well I just had to post it. I thought at first it looked like Razzy (the little kitten). But we have all decided she is half Lynx. She has the hair coming out of the top of her ears and is also spotted. My husband had said that Razzy had some type of wildcat in her but he kept saying bobcat. I told him I had never seen a spotted bobcat in my life. Then this morning, I was watching a wildlife show and there was a lynx on there. It was identical to Razzy. I do know her daddy was huge and gorgeous. There was times, I was tempted to have him fixed and bring him into the house. But Stinker and him hated each other. But how a lynx got mixed in with a cat, I don’t know. Truthfully, I don’t even want to imagine it. Razzy also has an unusual way of nuzzling me. I have finally got the hang of it and I do it with her. If I don’t she gently nibbles on my nose. Good thing I did, if she get teeth like a lynx, crap she would bite my nose off. But I consider myself lucky, she has already took me as her mother and witch. There are rituals and spells to draw your animals to you and make them your familiars. I don’t know or if you have even heard of this way or not. But in the hills, there is a custom (which some might shy away from) and it is very simple for making an animal your familiar. The animal has to scratch you or accidentally draw your blood. Then the animal has to lick your blood. You can’t force the animal to do this, they have to do this of their own freewill. For example, Razzy and I where playing. She got to playing to rough and scratched me on my arm. It was the first time she had ever seen blood and she was curious. Being the witch I am, I just sat still and put my arm down were she could see it. Well the little toot, put her paw in it and found out that blood is wet. While she was laying on me, she licked the blood off her paw. Then she looked at me, “like what just happened?” I think the connection must have happened at that point because she stood up on my chest and started nuzzling my face. But that is the simple way of taking a familiar or them taking you. At least that is the way we do it around here. Kiki (my little Pomeranian) did the same thing. Now I believe she is a vampire. I get a cut or scrape and she is chasing me down to lick it. I have to run like hell to get away from her, lol! I know some of you might think that mixing of the blood with an animal is gross. Then that is not for you, really it wasn’t for me either. It was just something that happened. But I don’t believe there is any ceremony or spell, that can create the bond you have with them after the mixing of the blood. I don’t want people reading this and then running around cutting themself trying to get Rover to get a lick. It has to be the animal that causes the blood to be spilled and then, of their own freewill, take a taste. I should add, that while the animal is taking a taste, you will have a very unusual sensation that comes over you. I know I did. That is your bond being established with them.


 Now that you think I am totally crazy, lol! I stopped to think about all the bonds we make in our life times. Honestly there is no telling how many we do. We reincarnate and reincarnate, think of all the bonds we have made in those past lives. The husbands, the wives, the kids and perhaps a pet or familiar, WOW! that enough to blow your mind right there. I haven’t even mentioned friends and even perhaps a lover or two! We certainly do have a long heritage, don’t we? I had a witch friend once that had such a strong bond with the past that she didn’t want to live in this life. She would do a past life regression and go back to that time and want to stay. She didn’t realize, she was only supposed to observe her past, to find out who she was and leave. She wanted to stay. She had a bond that was so strong it kept pulling her to that time. I don’t know if I am unfortunate or not, I don’t have any bond from my past that strong. I am happy in my current life. I guess that just goes to prove the fact, that life is what you make it. And the bonds we make here and now in this lifetime are precious and are never meant to be taken for granted (whether they be with human or animal).
