BeAutumn2019: Every Witch Needs A Familiar

Hello, I’ve been gone for a minute now I’m back w the jump off


what is be autumn???

Clo (Book Dragons) and created Bookend Events where every quarter of the year they bring the bookish community a new event to bring us closer together and meet new blogs and friends!

The prompt today is:

If you were a witch which magical creatures would you want as your familiar?

Are you guys READY FOR THIS??


I’ve already told you that besides pandas my favorite animal is the cow so ofc…that is a choice. I love them. They are so cute. I live right by a farm and I scream hello to them whenever I drive by. They are beautiful, cute creatures and we are the best of friends.

Hello cow babies. We are one. I even have a folder just for them and I.


10 years ago a black kitten showed up on our doorstep and demanded to be let in. My mother was reluctant at first but I was insistent. That kitten is now a huge 20 pound, black cat named Harle and he is the most pleasant, friendly cat I know. He is amazing. If there is any cat I would have as a familiar it would be him. He can sense my mood in an instant and jumps up and cuddles with me. When I was pregnant he would rest right against my stomach and lay with me. He is so great with Juliet and honestly the best cat. Sometimes he just comes into my room at night and lays right under my head and sleeps with me. Writing this makes me want to lay with him right now honestly lol. Black girl, black cat. My sweet baby Harle.

Last but not least

šŸ¦‹ Butterflies šŸ¦‹

I don’t know why but it seems like when I’m going through a transition in my life butterflies always show up in my life. A death in my family and I see butterflies in droves. A breakup and here go a slew of them. They follow me and it’s like a sign from a love one telling me that it’ll be okay or to just hang in there, I know it’s tough you’ve got this but we are watching. Buckle up, Amanda. You’re not alone. Maybe it’s not so much of a familiar but more of like a “little one, we’re watching you, chill the fuck out and stop stressing yourself out.”

I just wanted to share that last one especially because it’s been on my mind heavy and I did want to thank you for the lovely responses to this post:

October Life Update 

I was not expecting that at all and I truly do thank you all and I’m so happy I started blogging and I have met so many wonderful people šŸ™‚ I will be okay. It’s been rough but it’s getting better. This month is picking up! I’m making new friends at work, guys are actually flirting with me which is CRAZY since in my mind I’m hideous, and I have fun birthday plans with my best friends.

This was a fun prompt and I love my cow, cat, and butterfly mix familiar. Lol. I have been dabbling in minor witchcraft for a few years but never officially picked out a familiar. Just recently I have somewhat thought of myself as a green witch but I’m still not too sure about that. Nevertheless this was really fun. I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as I did šŸ™‚

ā¤ Later days

  1. Okay, I’m gonna admit, this is NOT what I was expecting. xD It sort of made me laugh at first, because of all the familiars you could have, you choose THAT?! I think we’re gonna have to agree to disagree about them being cute, though. There’s a lot of cow farms around here, and they’re awfully stinky and cantankerous lol.

    Now Harle, though, that sounds like an awesome familiar! Butterflies are a great choice, too. It’s so neat that they seem to appear when you need a sign the most. šŸ™‚
