Yeah, I'm sure I'd have been burned at the stake with all my familiars (my cats). I was amazed when I read that today: here in North America, the witch trials in Salem are the big deal: I had no idea so many were burned overseas. (Should have known; dumb really.)

Some figures for the burning of people for witchcraft. This is just for the period 1500 - 1650, and does not include all those burned for heresy and other 'crimes', before, during and after this period.
