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).
