I've had my girl 'Mag Ignis' (Or Mag/May for short) for about 6 or 7 years before I was able to do this. I'm so happy to be able to connect on a different level with her.

Awesome! Been looking for this spell for forever. (=

it works

This worked very well, thanks.

I have two cats and I am on holiday right now so I won’t be able to do this spell until I get back. But can’t wait to try it on them!

Hey I'm on Easter break and doing this with my pup

Can't wait to try this tomorrow

I don't know what the magickal name should be. Think magickbelle?

Feb 11, 2021
I would chose something that suits them. Instead of what you would call your your instincts.

As soon as I said the chant my dog sat with me, before she wanted to run off now she doesn't! This spell is amazing!

I did this with my bird and when I say her magick name she looks me in the eyes

i dont know what the magick name should be how do i come up with one??????????

I haven't been on this website in a while, but tonight I was thinking about a cat I had that passed away a couple of years ago. I had a very close connection with her and she with me. After her death, I continued to see her spirit here and there (it has been a while since I have seen her). I never got the chance to officially make her my familiar and I was wondering if there is a way to do that now.

i feel like she was, you seem to have a close bond, and her spirit lingered by you for some time. i'm sorry to hear of her passing, you could preform a ritual in which you name her as your ''departed familiar'' but i would reflect on the animals spirit. it might of crossed over and been reborn as someone you might meet later in life [could be another cat, a future child, even a plant] so you could ask to meet it again on your path, otherwise i would thank it for being there for you, wish its spirit a safe journey, and ask to help find another being with a similar soul connection as you had with your cat.

I heard my cat meow for several months after she died, so I guess the same thing kinda happened to me. I think that if you can still see her spirit regularly, you could try something to make her spirit stay with you. I don’t know about making her your familiar though.

Dec 31, 2020
Some witches use spirits as their familiars, so perhaps you can do so now. Leave an offering to her spirit and perhaps ask her to take on the mantle of your familiar. However, read up on the proper care of spiritual familiars before doing so

I feel connected to Owls

this spell works! I did it with my newborn black kitten and I soon after felt a closer bond to her.

so, if i make my bird my familiar, and i let it fly around outside and stuff, will it come back? sorry im new to this and i think my parrot would be a good fit for this.

Apr 26, 2020
They might come back, just make sure you feel your connection with her, and at least most of the side affects come true. Personally, I wouldn’t try it just in case it’s a placebo

does this effect the animals apperance in any way? I live with my parents and I don't want my cat to change apperance.

You cat is not a familiar. It is a cat. A familiar is a spiritual creature, not a physical one.

NordicOpal, It's common for people to not believe in this, but when you have a lot of others saying this works, and Nekoshema not saying it's fake, there's a sign that it really works, I tried it and it worked. Jdjdjjc, From what I know of your cat shouldn't change its appearance.

Mar 03, 2021
@EclipseAfton, I think you misunderstand NordicOpal and my comments. Familiars aren't your pet. Familiars, historically, are spirits people claim disguised themselves as animals. People today feel familiars are animals who can sense magick and assist in your path, and if you believe this, fine, but it's not a familiar by definition. By definition, it's a spirit in animal form. That's all. If you wish to treat your pet like a familiar, feel a bond with your pet, or it can sense energy and you share rituals together, fine, neither of us is stopping you. Again, this spell will not turn your pet into a familiar in the historical definition, but you can still work with them as if they are. That was our point.

Do you think this would work with a snake?

May 30, 2020
Historically, people claimed familiars were gifts from the devil to help the witch do her evil bidding [or she could transform into them] This is a myth and not true. Today, familiars are seen as animals you have a spiritual bond with [and it helps if they can sense magick energy so they can assist you in ritual] It doesn't have to be a cat, it can be any animal. I would research the animal so you know what their needs are and treat them with the utmost care and respect. Feed them the finest food, keep them healthy, and observe their personality so you aren't bothering them when they want space, or trying to meditate when they wish to play. It's just easier with cats and dogs because we understand their behaviour easier.

I finally found a spell that Nekoshema says is true! Finally!!

Oct 22, 2020
Well, if you are interested in a spell and need help, feel free to mail me.

yep, it works.

do you have any more I have no pets

Dec 31, 2020
A familiar is not a pet. It is not a physical being. Please read the forum post of Fetches and Familiars.

Hi I am looking for a sorcerer who will do me magic at a reasonable possible price and happy to answer

So I haven't tried yet but I really hope this will work

This is really funny.. I did it 2 times and both times something weird happend. The first time I was letting my cat for a while and she would just sit there, then I spoke the first word and the wind started blowing really hard... coincidence? Maybe. She started puring loud and I think she even winked at me. I did it a second time because I wasn't shure if it worked, she started purring again and this time my hearing even increased.

Can a demon be a familiar just wondering

Feb 23, 2021
Yes, it can.

Feb 23, 2021
A familiar is a spirit who helps the witch in her practice, this would include demons and other spiritual beings. Historically, it was believed it was gifted to her by the devil [which isn't true] Today, people think it's a pet. Familiars aren't pets, but they can be if you share a spiritual bond. [and if you think your pet is your familiar, that's fine, you might indeed have this spiritual connection, I'm just passing on knowledge]

I have a demon

Oct 31, 2021

I Have a cat before i was even born, But the cat hates me so no way she's gonna be my familiar ;-;

can guinea pigs become a familiar?

Mar 13, 2021

I just tried this with my dog I called him Amerus, idk if it works yet tho

I'm just wondering but If you have a mechanical or robotic companion could that be a familiar?

Does works on cats?

Aug 09, 2021
Yes. Cats, along with owls, rodents and a few other creatures are the most common familiars of witches and wizards.

Aug 09, 2021
As myself and others have stated here and elsewhere, familiars are animals you share a bond with. Your familiar can be your cat, dog, rat, snake, fish, turtle, parrot, hermit crab... pet rock maybe... Point is, it's an animal you share a bond with.

can i more than one familiar?

Sep 17, 2021
Technically yes, but it's a spiritual bond, so I wouldn't recommend it. Have you ever lost a pet? Now imagine having a deep spiritual connection to them on top of the regular love of a pet.

how long does take

Sep 17, 2021
Spells take time to manifest and can take shorter or longer depending on a number of factors. I typically give the average spell a moon cycle [28 days to a month] to show signs that it is working before trying something else. This spell seems like the type that would work within a month. Expect to see more stray cats, flyers for adoption, or friends/family talking about getting a cat. Those would be signs of it working.

can we have 2 familiars? or can we only have one?

Sep 24, 2021
You can have multiple familiars, but it's a deep spiritual bond, it's best to only have 1. I've been told by people who had familiars they can sense when their familiar is in danger and vice versa. Those I've spoken with whose familiars have died have told me they could feel the passing. As a child, I had a similar bond with my dog. I felt drawn to him the moment I saw him, and when he died, I was at school. I remember having this sudden shock to my system and I started crying because I knew something happened to him. That's the type of bond you will have with your familiar. I wouldn't recommend having more than one for your own sanity.

Did this too my male cocktail bird he looks straight into my eyes when saying his magical name
