If I were a witch and had my own familiar, I'd totally be the type of witch who'd baby-talk my little demonic helper! In fact, my son once told me that our black cat, Ichabod, was my familiar and I baby-talk to her all the time. I'm not sure where he learned what a familiar is...but it makes sense to me!
Anyway, according to a Wikipedia article on familiars, the image above is of a witch and her familiar spirits, taken from a publication that dealt with the witch trials of Elizabeth Stile, Mother Dutten, Mother Devell and Mother Margaret in Windsor, 1579.
Happy Friday, everyone!
