Superstitious people who see this black cat crossing their path panic with fear.Final Fantasy VI PlayStation esper section
Cait Sith (ケット・シー, Ketto-Shī?) is a recurring creature in the Final Fantasy series. It is a feline beast whose exact traits vary—sometimes it is an enemy, sometimes a summoned monster and sometimes an ally. It most commonly appears as an anthropomorphic black cat with a white stomach wearing red boots, a small red cape or scarf, and a golden crown. When appearing as an enemy, though, it is often a palette swap of the Coeurl. Cait Sith's most prominent appearance is in the Final Fantasy VII universe, where he has appeared as a playable character.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
Cat sìth (meaning "faerie cat", pronounced "Kat Shee") is a fairy creature from Celtic mythology, said to resemble a large black cat with a white spot on its breast. Legend has it that the spectral cat haunts the Scottish Highlands.
The legends surrounding this creature are more common in Scottish folklore, but a few occur in Irish. Some common folklore suggested that the Cat Sìth was not a fairy, but a witch that could transform into a cat nine times.
