The Cats
of WitchCraft


Yet, another Witchcraft myth dispelled!
Witches love their cats as well as all animals! We use this section of WitchVox to celebrate that fact.

End of an Era: We made the decision in Oct. of 2001 to stop accepting submissions for this section. Our point that Witch cats are safe and happy has been made hundreds of times over and we have amassed nearly 600 images that prove this claim conclusively. The Cats of Witchcraft continues to be popular and WILL stay up for your viewing pleasure.

Ariadne  Loki  Lynx

Left: My first kitty is: Ariadne.  She's always loved sitting near my altar (Here she is at my Samhain altar a few years ago). Whenever I've done a tarot reading, she's always been on the silk right away.

Center: "Here is Loki. After my last cat, Belly, passed, I decided to wait one full moon cycle and then eight weeks from that full moon and then go to get an eight week old boy kitty. The next full moon was July 9th and eight weeks from that date was (coincidentally?) September 3, which is the exact date I had gotten Belly eleven years before. So, on September 3rd, we found Loki, and Thor and Seegie at a friend's farm. http://www.wild-moon.com/life/tls.htm

Right: 
Next, is our lovely girl, Lynx.  We took her in as a pregnant stray, and she's been with us ever since. 




Thor  Seegie  Tempest




Left: This is Thor.  He's a big orange cuddlebug and Loki's half brother.

Center: And this is Seegie as a kitten.  We got her when we got Thor and Loki and she was an incredible girl.  Last Dia De Los Muertos, she was hit and killed by a car.  We miss and love her so much, and she came back
to us as Tempest.

Right: Tempest is our newest girl and fully lives up to her name.  This little kitty came into our lives on that auspicious of days, the Winter Solstice/Full Moon of last year. Our darling girl Seegie had been hit by a car on the Dia de los muertos, November 1st and I decided that I would mourn and wait until Winter Solstice to see if I
could find her again.  And we did. If you'd like the full story, check out http://www.wild-moon.com/life/tempest.htm   ~Izolda




 Casey  Casper

Left:   Hello, my name is Casey and I am a silver-haired familiar-in-training to my owners, Zoe and Logan. I love to play with everything but the toys they buy me, and I like to drink the water from the altar bowl, and put out candles with my tail. Here is a picture of me sticking my tongue out at you. If you would like to see more pictures of me, and find out more about me, (you know you do...) my website is at http://wicca.drak.net/willowsong/casey.html

Right:
Hi, I'm Casper.  Here I am hanging out in the cool Adobe furniture that my personal servant, Grisel, got for me.  I spend all sorts of time on it, mostly on the very top so I can survey my domain.   Yeah, I'm cute.  Grisel,
says I'm the cutest kitty ever.  And she's right.  For a human, she can be pretty smart sometimes.




Tabitha  Sybil  Goblin

Left: This is Tabitha! she is an itty bitty kitten that came to live with us in September - she's a lot bigger now! We love her a lot and look forward to celebrating her first Samhain/Halloween. More pictures of our exponentially growing kitty cat can be seen at http://cs.smith.edu/~abrowne/tabitha   ~StarSinger and ShadowGold

Center: This is a photo of Sybil, my son's cat, who decided to climb in the cauldron all on her own. It was too good a shot not to share!  ~Ron Kerns

Right: Goblin is a 4 month old tabby male foundling that was adopted by our wolfdog (yes, that's correct, adopted - they are the very best of friends, sleeping, eating, and playing together - may not be normal, but it's certainly typical for this family!) ~Raven Avery




Gypsy  Jade  Food

Left: These days, my name is Gypsy.  My familiar, Grisel, doesn't know what I was called before I found her, so she chose Gypsy because she said it fit me.  I admit, it does suit me.  I found my familiar about 4 years ago, just before Samhain, as she was leaving a chiropractor's office.  I knew immediately that we were meant to be together.  It did, however, take me a while to convince her of the fact (silly humans, they should know resistance is futile!) but eventually, after much purring and chasing after her when she tried to leave, she took me home with her.  She finally realized I was her familiar a few months ago when her high priestess told her.  Sometimes she's a slow learner, but I love her anyways.  Oh, that's my bed I'm laying on. I let her and her boyfriend sleep on it too.  At first, I didn't like it when Casper and Pebbles (the DOG <sigh>) slept on it too, but I've softened over
the years. 

Center: Merry Meet!  This is Jade.  We adopted her and her brother Silver together when they were only 4 weeks old.  ~ Willowgreen & Wolfhowl

Right:
I wanted to send you an adorable picture of our cat "Food" (my son named her when he was only 3) and my son "Blue Eyes".   ~Creatress




BlueMoon  Tuxedo and Ripple  Luna Moth

Left: My familiar's name is BlueMoon. He is 2 years old. He was born about 2 weeks before Samhain in 1998, and I have been his pet ever since.  ~Deni

Center and Right: Luna Moth is the baby Goddess in our family. She takes that role very seriously as she tucks in her guys, Tuxedo (black face, eyes open) and Ripple (tabby, sleeping already) for the night. She is of course willing to do anything to keep them in line, but she does love them very much, and does remember that they raised her, not the other way around. Luna is 3, Tuxedo is 8 and Ripple is 11. Luna is very attracted to the color red, apparently she's aware that it shows off her patched red fur to it's advantage. Luna is my familiar as well as my companion, and has even shown some interest in doing her own Rune castings. I'm am so blessed that the Powers that Be brought her into my life, and I thank the Goddess Bastet regularly for keeping my furred one's safe and healthy and happy. ~Kirsten


Moo and Punk   Morgan the Cat

Left: These are my two little witchlet kitties. Our black and white boy, 3 years old, is Moo (who has grown into his name quite nicely, thank you very much) and the little one is our year and a half old girlie, Punk. They just love eachother, as you can see. More to come! Next week, we are getting a 9 week old kitten...who will be named Samhain.   ~Kim

Right: This is Morgan The Cat. He's been with us almost a year now, and he still makes us laugh everyday. He thinks is the biggest, most ferocious cat in the world. But, he's really just a cutie.  ~Cherie and Chris




Fireball  Mugwort  Torrie/ Parka, Kinky and Halloween

Left: This is my cat Fireball.  He is just over one year old and was born on my 19th birthday. I took about 15 pictures of him and this is the only one that caught him sitting still.  He is always in the same room as me and always causing mischief.  Every book on Witchcraft that I own is chewed by him, but only because he knows that I will notice him if he bites on it while I'm reading!  But I still love him like crazy.  Thanks for sharing him with
everyone!     ~Melissa

Center: The first pic is of  my black cat, Mugwort.  He is a true tom in every way.  Follows me everywhere.  Here, he is sitting on the couch waiting for me to finish on the computer.

Right:
The next is a picture of Tortie, my calico.  She is feeding the newest editions to my household.  The gray one is Parka, orange one is Kinky, and the little calico is Halloween.  ~Georgia A. Adkins




Pita  Sabrina  Suna

Left: My kittycat, Pita, on his favorite perch - my shoulder. He's the sweetest thing and is always near me - and he loves getting into things on my altar!  ~Sunnie

Center: Her name is Sabrina, and NO I didn't name her after that TV show or even the comic book character. It's just a name I have some kind of connection with, so naturally I had to name my cat Sabrina :) She doesn't make too much trouble, except she seems to love sitting on our kitchen table, and sleeping in freshly cleaned clothes. But she's SO cute... I mean just look at those eyes... awwww... hehehe. ~rachel

Right:
This is Anachsunamu... Can't quite wrap your tongue around that? :) I call her Suna for short, and her name's from The Mummy.  I rescued her from the Shelter, she lay in my arms and reclined like the Queen she is.  Of course now she drives me insane, now that she's safe and warm and well fed... *lol* can't you just see the hint of fang? I beaded her collar, that's the one and only time she wore it for me. Wretch! I love her, and I'm glad she's mine.  ~Lunassa


Totoro  Joxer  William

Left: This is Totoro, my fuzzy smushyfaced guardian kitty. He isn't terribly bright, but he guards me against evil. He loves plants, so much that I had to buy him his own. 

Center: My newest kitty, Joxer. He is a bundle of energy who entertains himself with feathers on a stick when I'm not in a playful mood. He is a constant talker, and always trying to "help" me do things.  ~Lady Lillith


Right:
This is William...he's a beautiful big boy, all charm and innocent affection, but not terribly intellectual (he's been known to stare in rapt awe as the ice tea maker brews-yes, really). He's momma's special boy.  
~ Asleif
