Mine would have to be the field mouse - wonderful little creatures they are!

Last night, as I drove back from a wedding reception, a rabbit hopped into the road - too close for me to be able safely to brake or swerve. It's not my sacred animal, but it certainly got sacrificed.

Possibly unsurprisingly Ravens and Cats for me.

Ravens for my Lady, their intelligence, sense of knowing and majesty.

Cats because they are “half in, half out” to quote John Constantine and their tendency to treat humans as pets!

Ursus arctos horribilis (the Grizzly bear) is never far from my side. She appeared around the same time as my children were born and readily comes to my aid whenever anyone foolishly tries to harm me or mine. She's not easily provoked but when it happens, evacuate the area quick smart!

I knew someone on another site who had a similar ursine type attachment.

Do you see your bear as separate to you or a version (for want of a better word) of you?

My own bear, considerably smaller and a lot more scruffy than a grizzley, is part of me.  Like Dr. Jekyll's Hyde, bear used to be optional when I needed bear characteristics.   After a while, just as Hyde had later to be pushed back so I had to suppress bear.  Now I don't bother and the old bugger is evident most of the time..

I now have a mental image of varying sizes of bear typing away on their laptops...

"Part of me" is the answer I was expecting.  The alternative, if that is Sinistra's position, might be an interesting exploration.

I do not have a sacred animal as far as I am aware... perhaps I am just ignorant :blink:

I have a fondness for quite a few animals, but nowhere near the idea/concepts of familiars, fetches or sacred animals. A quick list would include: tigers, lynxes, dogs (not the small, scrappy kind), bumblebees, moths, pipistrelles, magpies, jackdaws, crows, red deer stags, foxes, and owls. I think they're all stunning and majestic.

Maybe one day ;)

There is a big Ursidae family around here.  Definitely wellies in the woods :biggrin:

Of all the bears in our family, I'm guessing that I am the teeny-tiny bear.  Most of you seem to have or be North American bears.

Is no one a Kamchatka, Kodiak or Polar?  All bloody big.

Please don't be sun bears.  They are miniature [smaller than my bhalu], very smartly turned out but the nastiest little buggers I have had the misfortune to clean up after.
