My Name is Eli and I am a Pagan by 


Tonight we celebrated Mabon, which, for us Pagans (Wiccans), is the holiday that marks the fall harvest and the preparations for the coming of winter (its a metaphor-I don’t pick corn). Mabon is celebrated on the Autumnal Equinox. Food, candles, calling the corners, welcoming the spirits, sharing stories, sharing love, and a glorious feast. Fun was had by all in attendance. The host, my dear friend TC, just got a new kitty (ok, a few months ago, but Eli was new to me.) He was permissive enough to allow me to capture this adorable photo, Something about having circle and calling the corners and warm hearts around the candles brings the kindness and affection out of any home animals that happen to be there. Maybe it was the spirits, maybe he was just being sweet (maybe both – look at that adorable face.)
If Delain wasnt snipped, I would introduce her to Eli. :))

    Oh WOW! he is absolutely gorgeous!! great shot!

  • Thanks, Kath! It took me forever to get rid of the glowing Alien kitty eyes!! I had to use the flash for this shot because TC woulnt turn on any damn lights. (we had candles lit). So, with much effort, I was able to get black pupils again. Isnt he adorable?? And usually he is not friendly, but he was just so sweet and loveable tonite (I was feeding him little bits of bread. He likes bread. Weird cat!). I guess he felt all of the good energy we had. :))

    Animals feel connected to the earth, they enjoy all that the earth is offering them…and you are part of his family…and he is drawn to your energy, and all that you do. He knows what is in your heart of hearts…and he loves you..and wants to participate in each gathering..honoring the earth. What a beautiful photo…he is regal, and so handsome! A wonderful photo!!!

  • Thank you Brenda. Isnt he so handsome?? And yes, they can feel the good energy and were drawn to it. TC has two other cats, Chloe and Daphne. Chloe is my girlfriend and always comes to me when I am there. LOL. But Daphne is a little demon spawn from hades and wont come near me. But tonight, she was all over me, head bumping me, rubbing up against me…it was unreal. This cat hates everyone, but I guess she loved me tonite.

    WOW, you can definately see that he has caught the energy,,,beautiful:)xx

  • Thank you, honey!!! :)xx
    It was amazing…..all 3 of the cats that were there were unbelievably friendly and affectionate tonite. And of course, they live there, so they were welcome, but they stayed with us for the entire evening. It was like they were all high or something. LOLOL (We drank much Mead Wine so we all had quite the buzz, as well. LOL – I did wait a while to drive home.)

    Yes…i do understand as i also have a kitty and sometimes she ignores me completely well almost always except for feeding and treats…but lately after 11 years of being with me..she is coming around slowly. I suspect your kitty is sensing your great vibes…and is starting to come around…maybe your influence is creating this wanting to know you and what a great feeling this is when our little kitty feels this! I bet this little cat is very smart and feeling oriented!! Glad to hear that this kitty was more affectionate tonight!!!

  • He was such a little nutcase!! Running all over the place, feeding off all of the good energy, all of TC’s 3 cats were so animated. They really can pick up on emotions. It was so cute!!!

    Probably both Scott, beautiful thinking here, xoxo

  • Cats just ROCK. ALL of them – they have such complex personalities and ways about them – I could never own a dog…..way too needy. xoxox

    Eli is beautiful. Glad he let you get photos.

  • He did, just barely, though. LOL. After the circle had closed, he was back to his elusive self, so I grabbed a few photos (this is the only one that came out) while I had the chance.

    Yes, that is true Scott I love cats more too, although a dog can be very sweet, they are to much in need and dependent… love, anna Xoxo

  • Yeah, thats what I mean, You have to do everything for dogs. Cats are very independent. I like that part. LOL xoxox
