A familiar is an animal with whom the person has a special connection to, not every animal is a familiar. It is one that your form a special bond to and the animal usually arrives to the person in a way out of the ordinary, rather than the individual going and buying the animal at the shop. In folklore, the witches familiar was said to aid the witch by looking for tools, carrying out deeds, and the like as well as was commonly seen as a cat, crow, or toad.
