I've been living in my apartment for 5 years now. Been practicing the craft for 3 years. Twice now a bat or bats keeps on landing on my balcony. First time I heard a funny noise and my cat got hold of the poor thing. Luckily we saved the bat and set it free. Now 2 nights ago my hubby woke up maybe at 3 in the morning and heard the same bat noise on our balcony again. This time our cat was asleep on our bed. The bat was safe but still made a noise. I've been wondering why all of a sudden are the bats attracted to our apartment. Can it be that they sense the energy because of the spells. Can a bat be my familiar or can it have some meaning. A message maybe. Please if anyone can give me some info. Will be appreciated

This is the time of year when the weather starts warming up and bats begin to come out of hybernation and looking for food. But bats have a very high metabolic rate, if they don't find food they rapidly tire and end up landing whereever they might be. I suspect that's what's happening with the two bats you found.
Familiars are not physical animals, they are magical servitors or constructs created by the magic user. You could make one in the form of a bat, but real bats are not familiars.
