Spells to Protect Pets
With some level of emotion hold the image of your animal
being safe in your mind. Feel your desire for their continued safety. If one is gone from your side imagine what it will be
like when your pet returns. Rough out the images as clearly as you can. You can incorporate this technique into other, more
structured, ritual forms.
Take some fur of the animal (shed fur will do nicely). Tie fur into a bunch with some red thread (silk by
preference, although cotton or even acrylic will do). Invoke the blessing of your patron deity. Place consecrated fur into
a cannister the following is imperative!. The cannister must be reflective on the outside, but NOT on the inside (If the cannister
is reflective on the inside, it will focus malicious intent on the animal!). Seal the cannister with red wax (just a dab will
do) Place cannister next to cat's usual exit. Red is the color of protection, silk is an insulator, the reflective cannister
reflects malicious intent, the blessing is for extra whammy to the spell.
A little something extra
To keep your animal free from fleas, soak garlic in olive oil and mix a tablespoon of the oil in with their
food daily. (I would add that, while you soak the garlic and whenever you place it in the cat's dish, you might visualize
the fleas jumping off the cat and never coming back.)

Trading places exercise for you & your pet/familiar
To trade places (mentally) with a dog or cat, or other animal.
TO BE DONE AT:
Home, Zoo, Wilderness, etc.
1. Relax your body as completely as you can. Calm your mind, eliminating all thoughts which do not relate
to your intent and purpose. Sit so that you are comfortable, and as nearly as possible on the same level with the animal you
will be working with. Lie down if you like. The important thing is that you are able to comfortably make eye contact with
your animal partner in this exercise. It is also important to satisfy yourself that the animal is likewise comfortable and
secure with you
2. Take a deep breath. As you slowly exhale, look into the animal's eyes, and imagine that a part of your
awareness is being transmitted through your breath into the animal's mind. Watch the animal breathe, and imagine that a part
of its awareness is being transmitted into your mind.
3. Continue looking directly into the animal's eyes until you fell
your consciousness merge with the animal's consciousness.
As the boundaries between you and the animal dissolve, you may feel as if you've really traded places with
a member of another species, as though a part of you has become the animal - this is the height of subjective merging. You
may begin to feel compassion for another species. You'll also probably recognize some of the artificial differences between
the human and animal worlds. You may be able to feel or sense the actual flow of the animals emotions and mental imagery.
Should you accomplish this then it should be no trouble for you to contract with the animal to serve as your magical partner.
Asking another to become such a partner also places upon you the responsibility of becoming its partner. I would not recommend
contracting an animal to become your familiar and then treating the animal as a pet. A pet is something you possess, own.
A Familiar, to my way of thinking, is an individual who has entered into a mutually beneficial relationship (partnership)
with you, and therefore should be afforded the respect and consideration due a partner
Pet Death/Euthanasia Ritual
Few things in this life seem to cause as much emotional pain as the loss of a pet. Involve euthanasia, and
the remorse is nearly unbearable. Guilt pays a call. All the other emotional boogiemen flock around, too, just waiting for
their turn to rip the grieving pet owner to shreds.
This ritual is helpful for dealing with the guilt, remorse, and sorrow associated with the death of a pet.
It also helps send animal friends peacefully into the Summerland. I felt there wasa real need for this ritual .
1 flower of your choice
Light the incense and candles, and greet the Lord and Lady by saying:
I come to Your now to release
This pain and all emotional beasts
That plague my heart so heavily-
Take them from me-set me free!
Name the flower for your pet. Holding it in your hand, stroke its petals
and speak to your pet with love and honesty. If euthanasia was a factor,
explain your reasons for terminating his/her life cycle. If not, this is
a good time to talk to your pet about loneliness you feel without
Place the flower on the altar and lay the rose quartz on top of it. Tell
your pet that the stone will always represent him/her to you, and
explain that he/she is free to go to the Summerland for rebirthing. Say:
You're free to go now, Little One,
Rejoice and play-the time has come
For your spirit to be on it's way.
Have fun, he happy-your love will forever stay!
Meditate on the spirit of your pet moving on, then place a drop of
vinegar on your tongue to represent the sourness we feel when Death
takes a loved one. Take some time to grieve what might have been. If you
haven't had a good cry yet, now might be a good time. Scream, yell, and
throw a fit if you need to, but get it all out of your system.
When you feel you can cry no more, taste the honey. Rejoice and
celebrate the relationship you had with your pet. Remember all the good
times you had, the love you shared, the special spot the pet filled in
Extinguish the candles and thank the Lord and Lady for Their comforting
Release the flower into a body of water, such as a river or stream. Wish
it a fond farewell as it floats away. Keep the stone close to you or put
it in a very safe place.
Plaese may i offer some Rites to say goodbye to a beloved cat that had
died. I will post them one after another. werecat has a beautiful rite

Rite of Release.
Sometimes our animal friends need a little help releasing from their
bodies at death. This is the rite I use when one of my animal companions
or another animal dies:
Surround the body in light. You may not be able to see this light, but
know it is there nonetheless. Know that this energy you send will be
used at some point in time to assist the animal to pass on to the
Picture a door opening and beyond this door, see a glowing landscape -
one this animal would be happy in.
Say this (or words similar):
Your body no longer serves you.
I bid you, in the names of the Lady and the Lord,
Go now to the Summerland.
May your spirit soar.
Blessed Be and Farewell.

MAGICAL DOG/CAT COLLAR SPELL
This spell should be done during the waxing moon.
What you need:
1 yellow candle
Amethyst stone (fairly small)
1 Brown collar apple, peach or lavender oil
5 silver paper clips (You may use jewelry-making wire but it won't be nearly as strong as the paper clips,
which are unbelievable hard to bend and shape but it is possible)
brown fabric paint
Light the candle. Take four or the five paper clips and bend them all out as straight as possible (use
the needle-nosed pliers).
Now take the paperclips and (do what feels right to you) wrap the stone as you would a crystal. Chant the
following while doing this:
"This collar I have made by hand shall protect my pet, all evil shall be banned. It will keep him/her in
good health and always loved it is a source of good luck that is always watching from above. No harm shall ever come to my
pet. And my will, So mote it be!
Anoint the collar with the oil you have chosen.
Attach the wrapped stone to the collar (like you would a license tag).
A Brazilian spell from the depths of the Amazon used for
healing livestock and pets, and additionally, for easing births of the same.
You will need:
A particle from the animal
(a hair, feather, nail-clipping, etc)
A small, stone jar
A small stone
A sterile needle
A short beeswax candle--any color
Fill the jar halfway full with the water. Light the candle. While the candle is burning, repeat this invocation:
earth spirit, guardian of life, I implore you,
Turn your watchful eye to this creature that you love,
Bring forth from
the sky above,
The healing power of the sun and air,
I trust this mission to your care.
Prick your finger with the
sterile needle and squeeze a drop of your blood into the water. Next, put the stone and the particle from the animal into
the jar. Now, take the candle and drop seven drops of wax into the water. Seven drops, no more—no less.
Place the candle, upside down (wick down), into the jar and place the jar in an area where it will receive
the rays of the sun.
For births, this spell should be worked about a week before the birth is due.
Remember, as with
any healing spell, they are designed to assist in the healing, but should never be used alone. Proper medical attention is
vital and a licensed medical practitioner should always be consulted.
Find a lost familiar
Light white candles of any size. Make sure you have a hair, feather (etc) of your familiar, before you say
the spell. The spell may be done in any part of the moon phase, but sooner reciting of the spell will result in sooner finding
of the familiar. Here is the spell:
What has been lost I call to thee
Much more than just good company.
Goddess and God, please
lend your ears
Please help me find what I hold dear.
Blessed be! So mote it be
Drop the piece of your familiar into the first flame. Write down & memorize the spell. Burn the
piece of paper and chant the spell until it is nothing but ash.
