The Good Cat Spell Book is a beautiful hardcover, smaller-sized book with enchanting illustrations. The text is colored with deep purple and brown and the layout is easy to navigate. Spells are divided by chapter. Topics include; love, happiness, luck, wealth and health. There is a section on “Feline Divination” where along with your cat’s assistance and a helpful oracle map, you can find the answers to your burning questions.
Chapter Two: Cats as Objects of Worship and Fear made an interesting read as it covered a history of our feline friends. Many of the spells require your cat’s assistance (or presence). Those of us with cats know that they often have their own agenda and may not want to assist you with your goal.
One or two of the love spells are borderline manipulative. For example, “To Encourage A Long - Time Love to Endure” part of the spell’s words are “ . . . your thoughts shall always turn to me, you and I will always be we” (pg 19).
Spells that may be of interest to young practitioners include; For Help to Pass a Test or Exam, To Increase your Popularity, To Heal a Broken Heart.
Kemp keeps the spell ingredients fairly simple (however, you may be challenged to find a beetroot or two). And from the spells that I have read, they do seem to treat the cats in a humane way. Overall, The Good Cat Spell Book is a pretty book with some good ideas (in spite of some repetitive themes). It makes a cute gift for a new cat owner!
