Cat Mythology – Cats as Familiars

Here is the dark history of cats

Cats as familiars have a long and dark history in western mythology. These cats often found their way into literature. One of the most famous was Grimalkin, the witches’ cat from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Cats as witch’s companions are still a part of the popular symbology associated with the modern holiday of Halloween.

What is a familiar? In western mythology a familiar was an animal companion given by the devil to a witch in order to help her with her evil magic.

A Short History Of Cats

Cats And Their History

It seems strange that there was ever a time when cats were not a part of our lives. It’s been less that 10,000 years since cats swaggered into our lives. Hardly an eye blink in the grand sweep of life on this planet. Why were cats so late to join our team? The simple answer is they didn’t need us to survive. Cats were surviving just fine on their own. Then, people invented agriculture. Agriculture resulted in large scale storage of grains which attracted the usual and well know group of freeloaders, mice and rats. Grain attracted rodents. Rodents attracted cats who consider them tasty meals. The result was that cats set up housekeeping close to human settlements. Eventually, cats being cats, moved right on in. Continue reading

Miracles I have seen

Miracles I have seen

by David M Peterson

For many years now I have been holding close to my heart the many miracles I have witnessed in my life. For reasons known only to myself, I will not dwell on the aspects of my Salvation and Walk with the Lord. Suffice it to say, it has been a lifetime of belief in God and a slow, sometimes unsteady climb to the loving arms of my Savior Jesus Christ.

When one is chosen of God to salvation, (please don’t think I am boasting) the work of God in preparing the way for belief can, as in my life, begin much earlier then the actual work of regeneration of the heart. This work I may write about at a later time. As to the miracles I speak of, the first I write of (the first miracle put down on paper is not the first in my life. I choose this miracle only because I have spoken of it before) is as follows. Continue reading
