Dobble stone

Dobble stone, in English folk magic, is a stone having a natural or artificial hollow on its upper surface, into which offerings are poured. To cast a traditional spell for rising a wind, milk is poured into the dobble stone from the direction out of which the desired wind is to come, and then left for the cats to drink; in gratitude, the cats will raise the desired wind. Some suggest this spell was originally invoked by the Nordic goddess Freya, whose sacred animal was the cat; however, no reference to this or any other Pagan deity is associated with the spell.
