Manifest Cat

Mimsy November 8, 2018

Here is a photographic ritual for manifesting cats that you can try at home. If you do not have access to a real cat, you may substitute a picture of a cat. However, the magic is more potent if the original cat is a body, rather than an image of a body.

The greater the number of recursive cat images you display in your home, the greater the number of cats who will appear to you elsewhere in your life.

Above that there is a greyish-cream wall. At the top centre of the photograph, attached to the wall, is a closeup photograph of the same cat, sleeping in the same position, on the same sofa.

To the left of this photograph, and below the closeup photograph, is a third photograph attached to the wall. It displays the same cat, sleeping on the same sofa, below the same wall, to which the same photographs of a closeup cat and a cat sleeping on a sofa below a photograph of a closeup cat are affixed.
