SITH CAT OF THE HIGHLANDS-
Hello my Dearest, friends, Followers, Supporters and Readers of my humble blog. I found a new fun
creature called the Sith Cat from the Gaelic Legend of Scotland. magick
basically a monstrous cat of Scotland Folklore. It would seem that the people of Scotland
Highland did not trust the Sith Cat. They believed that it could steal a person's
Soul before it was claimed by the Gods by passing over a corpse
Before they were able to complete the burial; Therefore, watchers called the
'Fall Fadalach' were performed night & day
To keep the Sith Cat away from the
Corpse before burial. Methods of
'Distraction' would be such games as leaping & Wrestling, Catnip, riddles, & music would be Employed to
Keep the Sith Cat away from the room in
Which the corpse is at rest. In addition, there were No fires where the body lay, as it was
legend that the Sith Cat was attracted to the warmth of the fire. On the Samhain, which is a Gaelic festival marking the ending of the harvest season and the
Beginning of winter, it was believed that the Sith Cat would bless any house that left a saucer Of milk out for it to drink, but those houses that did not
Let out a saucer of milk would be cursed into having all of their cow's milk dry.
In some common folklore, it is also suggested that the Sith Cat are not Faeries
But, witches that can transform into a cat.
There are differences in the details in these tales regarding the
Transformations of the Sith Cat into a witch. Some say that these witches are
Limited to transforming into a cat nine times while others say the witch will be trapped
In which ever form she takes in her ninth transformation.

It has shaggy rough fur like bristles instead of of soft fur of a normal cat. The SITH CAT, also has a menacingly arched back.
