Ariane is readying her house for a puppy and a kitten, both rescues. Plus, she has two teenagers! She needs a goddess who can help everyone keep the peace. She needs the Sumarian goddess known now as the Lady of the Beasts.
The Lady of the Beasts is totally ancient. She predates written history, so we don't know what she was originally called, but sculptures of her have been found in lots of your Fertile Crescent sorts of places. In most artifacts, she is either depicted with a lion or as a hybrid woman/animal. She is thought to have been the "Cosmic Creatrix," which I think means God. She is also thought to have been a figure of life and health and fertility--all that good stuff.
So I think if you are going to have three species under one roof--including two teenagers, of which I know much--I think you can't go wrong with the Lady of the Beasts. Although I would caution you to keep the teenagers in separate rooms, at least at first, and to be sure to spend some special one on one time with the kitten and the puppy; strong attachment bonds are so important.
Channel this goddess: When you have lots of animals under one roof, when thinking of getting an animal companion, when wondering whether or not to crate. (We've had bad luck; apparently, teenagers need their space.)
Need a goddess? I've got goddesses! Post a comment explaining what you need or want a goddess for. Then check back in a week or two and see what you got. It's fun! It's free! It's not nearly as soft and cuddly as a puppy or kitten, but it's better than a poke in the eye.
