That sometimes having a pet isnít just about having a dog or a cat, itís more about having what is known as a familiar. These are animals that donít even seem like animals at all, but rather like little furry people. Maybe itís because through the years youíve accepted that as those animals lived out their lifespan only to return in other incarnations later on. The ideas of having a familiar spirit make us recognize our beloved animal in new forms and in the functions that might change, but the spirit returns. You know it and you know when you feel it.

I just recently lost my beloved Russian Blue feline. He was 15 years old. He and I had such a bond that his passing was very difficult. When we rescued him from a cat adoption it wasnít because we wanted another pet. It was because he chose us! He was so excited to see us that when we went to put him back in the box with the other felines he had such a grip on my husband and later on me that we couldnít pry him of us. His meows were such that it sounded like he was saying, ďNO! Donít leave me!Ē Even the Veterinarian thought it odd. She said, ďItís like he knows who you are. Almost like a child crying that you are leaving them behind." So that night we brought him home and he never left my side. He would wait for me at the door when I came home from work. When I used the restroom, he used his box. Over time as he grew his whole personality was more of a little human in fact everyone who met or spent time with him would say, ďHe isnít a cat you know, heís like a little furry human.Ē There was something in him that seemed so familiar as if we had known his animal spirit before. 

I had been told that animal spirits stay as animal spirits but may shift from species to species. I truly think it is possible. I can tell you this much that when you see your familiar you will know. That bond will be so great that even if you didnít expect to be leaving with your familiar/pet, you will have no choice in the matter. For if you donít find them, they sure and the heck will find you and then you will have no other choice but to take them home with you.

Blessed Be!
