Bookending Autumn: Every Witch Needs a Familiar

Good evening bookworms!

Yes… this is still going!! AND I created a new tab!! (Because I really couldn’t figure out where to put them…)

This post is part of Bookending Autumn 2019, which is organized by Sam & Clo! The prompt for today, “Every Witch Needs a Familiar” is hosted by Jamsu @ Jamsu Dreams! If you want to do this prompt, please don’t forget to link back to Jamsu’s post!

Prompt Explanation: If you were a witch which magical creatures would you want as your familiar?

Ooooh, I would totally have a cat familiar as a witch!! And to be perfectly honest, it would likely be one of my MAGICAL kitties (I have three… one is grey and two are black, and yes, they are magical)!

So, let me introduce my babies and then we can decide which one would be best!

Firstly, there’s Cat. (Yes, creative I know, wait until you hear the other two’s names.) She’s the oldest at eight years this December. She’s kind of snarky, doesn’t really like the other two, but she’s also a total sook. She likes lap-time, toothpaste (yes, I once caught her chewing on a toothbrush) and the smell of bleach (look, my cats are weird, ok). And surprisingly, she’s the most normal of the three. Cat can also play fetch and she likes to sleep on top of my feet.

Next up is Kitten. She’s the middle child and just turned six in August. She’s also a demon cat and constantly riling the other two up and then disappearing when the fighting starts. She only drinks hot water (if you give her cold water she splashes in on the ground) and magically appears whenever there is food. She’s also an escape artist, excellent at opening closed doors, and being naughty wherever she’s not supposed to be. She’s also the least affectionate of the three so whenever she comes for snuggles you know she’s either hungry or feeling nice (which is rare)!

And finally, we have the baby of the family, Fluffy. Just turned four in June, he is the biggest sook you will ever meet: you only have to hover your hand over him and he starts to purr. He likes love, cuddles, and trying to claw his way into your skin to get closer to you. Fluff is also not very good at being a cat. He doesn’t know how to retract his claws and he is hideously clumsy (I have watched him fall off more things than he has landed on). But he’s also very sweet and adorable, so long as you don’t need too much sleep – because he likes to sleep with his cold, wet nose pressed into your neck, while laying over your shoulder.

So, three worthy possibilities…

I guess if I have to choose one, then I should make the sensible pick. I choose a dragon, and just keep these three as house cats!!

  1. Oh, they are precious! 😍 I’m more a dog person, I mean, I like cats as well and we’ve always had both when I was a kid. The question here is…familiars can talk to each other, can’t they? So the question you should really be asking yourself: Whose chatting could you stand the longest? 😆
    But if I was an actual witch living in a cottage in the woods I would actually love to have a raven or an owl. Or a bat. Love bats. 😍

    1. Bats are AMAZING!! Such intelligent creatures!!
      Also, you make a very valid point… if I can communicate with my familiar, I am definitely going with Kitten. She’s so sneaky and naughty I could tell her off properly, and also use her brain to help me conspire!! 😂

  2. ahaha omg, love the names XD I guarantee you my naming isn’t any better, haha before Kafei and Sheik, I went into the “food” tab of naming .. Also how funny the way you ended that ahahah
    My old lady used to be a black and white cat, but ohh I ADORE calicos and siameses ❤️ Although black cats are so pretty too ! (and perfect for a witch!)

    Of course I was thinking i’d own a dachshunds familiar.. but what about a GHOST DACHSHUND FAMILIAR?! so you’d have the spooky vibe, aswell as my favorite dog.

  4. Awwww, I love your kitties!!! ❤ My baby Lyra is only 1yo, I love her so much and I recognize a bunch of those weird traits you mentioned haha. 😀 I did have a black cat, Emily, for 10 years when I was in middle/high school, she was precious too. 🙂 Kitties are the best! ❤
