How to Make Black Cats as Witches' Familiars

  • 2Folklore has it that if a witch becomes human, her black cat will no longer reside in her house.
  • 3Some believe that black cats are witches in disguise, or witches reborn.
  • 4Others believe black cats are witches familiars (beings that aid witches in performing their craft). Not all familiars were black cats though; some were cats of other colors, dogs, pigs, or other animals.
