My familiar of 18 years, Storm, a male Blue Abyssinian feline mix, had to leave this existence and move on to the Elysian Fields.
There is a pain in my heart, deep down, where he used to lie and purr and leave me contented and at peace.
I lost my familiar of 19 years, Elvira, a female Maine Coon feline mix a little over four years ago. The pain is the terrible.
It's as though a piece of my heart, my self, my very being has been ripped from me once again. And there is no replacing it.
I mourn him daily. I returned him to Earth where he lies peacefully near Elvira, close but not too close, just as in life. They could never really get along with each other unless I was between them.
My heart, though hollow, is stabbing in pain with every beat. I am, for the first time since becoming a witch, without a familiar.
I have never felt so lost. My daughters know I am not okay, they can feel a difference in the energy in our home. My husband is trying to keep me even and calm so I can grieve peacefully but I feel like lashing out.
It isn't fair to have lost them both so quickly after having them each since kittens and slowly introducing them to magick until it became commonplace for them to sit under my feet or wrap themselves around my shoulders and nestle into my hair while practicing my craft.
I am unsure where to go from here or if my heart could take another familiar.
Deep down, though, I know they are without pain now, without distress and in good care of my loved ones who left me long ago but knew them still and were kind hearted with them.
May your souls be led swiftly on the wings of our Goddess to your final resting places. You were and are loved and will always be missed.
