The Cat Sith is a fairy or sprite resembling a black cat with a white mark on it's chest. The Cat Sith is primarily not trusted as it is said that it will steal a soul before God claims the persons soul. This is similar to a Kasha in Japanese mythology. The Cat Sith, pronounced as Kyte Shee, in Scottish mythology suggested that the Cat Sith was not a fairy but a witch that could transform into a cat nine times. If the Witch turned into a cat on the ninth time, it is said that the witch will be a cat forever. It is also said that this is where a cat having nine lives comes from. The Cat Sith is also referred to the king of cats.
