You've got some pretty witchy stuff going on. Even if you're not a witch, you've got to admit that you're a little freaky. You have a strong independent streak - social norms be damned. More power to you. Luckily, the time when you would have been burned at the stake has passed!
Previously, I lived alone, away from the village, with several cats including two black ones. In the 16th Century, I'm sure things would have been very different. Still, at least the roasting would have been warm!
Now, where did I park that broom? Are You a Witch?
