Cat Blessings Ritual

I am a cat fanatic. I always have been. When I grew up out in the coutry, we always had a cat or two. For about 5 yearswe had a female cat who would pop out kittens every spring and fall. I was adopted about 2 years ago by 2 gorgeous kittens. They are like my kids. Here is a picture of them.

Sarah Lee is the grey and white one and Lucky is the other one. They are much bigger now.

I perform this ritual on their birthdays since I was there when they were born. You can also do this on the anniversary of when they came in to your life.

You will need : a gold candle(For the God/dess) a cat figure candle for each cat ( or just a white one), a favorite incense and, of course, your kitty.

Light the incense and place the candles in the center of the altar. Cast your circle. Light the gold candle and invoke the Horned God:
O Great Horned God, consort of the Goddess, I invoke thee, and invite thee, into this circle.

Light the white candle and then, holding your cat, kneel before the altar and recite the following prayer:
O Great Horned God,
Father of the woodlands
And loving lord of all creatures
That walk cralw, swm and fly
A threefold blessing I humbly ask
Of thee on this special day:
May this cat's life be a long
Happy and healthy one.
May she always receive
Your divine protection.
And when our incarnations
In this world cease to be
May we forever be reunited
In the great Wiccan otherworld
Known as the Summerland.
Blessed be!

After the prayer has been recited, gaze into the flame of the gold candle and chant three times the name of your cat with the words "Blessed Be". Kiss your kitty and set him down. Give thanks to the Horned God in your own way and close the circle.

*NOTE: You can substitute this ritual for any pet of yours!
