"It's not often you come across a fairytale cottage complete with witch's cat."

Archeologists in Lancashire, England have discovered the ruins of a 17th century witch's cottage!

From the article:

"Historians are now speculating that the well-preserved cottage could have belonged to one of the Pendle witches.

The building contained a sealed room, with the bones of a cat bricked into the wall.

It is believed the cat was buried alive to protect the cottage's inhabitants from evil spirits."

Horrid! And wonderful!
