Nice article, thanks. As a practicing Witch for many years, I have had a number of familiars. The one thing the article didn't make clear is that ANY
animal can be a familiar. I've had numerous animal companions for many years, but only a few of them have been familiars. Just like humans, some
animals are more psychic and perceptive than others, and thus, make better familiars.
Currently, I have one familiar and he is a horse. Whenever he hears someone coming down our very long driveway, he whinnies to alert me. When I'm
feeling down, he is great at comforting me, rubbing his forehead and nose up and down my arm or face. But it is more than that, it is a very special
connection. We are very, very close and have a strong psychic connection.
How did my familiar come to me? I believe that familiars come to us. They know who are they supposed to be with and they find us somehow. My horse was
walking down the street with his then person riding him. He is a Tennessee Walker, with a beautiful natural gait. He looked so proud and beautiful as
he was cantering down the road. I was a distance away in the car, and absolutely exhausted after having moved cross-country. But something grabbed my
attention, I opened my eyes, and there was the most beautiful horse I'd ever seen. I went up to the horse and his rider, and I knew there was just
something very special about this horse. Astonishingly, the man offered to sell me the horse, even though he never planned to before I met him.
Eventually, I bought the horse and that was 2.5 years ago - we've been happy togetehr ever since. He is a brilliant and a psychic horse and knows
intuitively what I want him to do.
Hope this gives some idea of what a familiar is.
