Another connection with an animal spirit is the familiar animal, also known as familiar animal or animal familiar. Familiars are fellow travelers on this earth plane. Nothing anymore. Nothing less.
Unlike other types of animal guides, this is usually a living creature working in tandem with a human counterpart. The bond between you and your famous animal is often very deep and based on respect.
Not everyone has an animal familiar because not everyone needs it. Usually an animal familiar enters your life unexpectedly, for example a stray cat that keeps coming back or a bird that keeps singing on your window, but sometimes you also choose your animal familiar yourself, for example when you are going to buy a puppy or a rabbit.
