Tabitha, Vampire Kitty
The witching hour is getting closer! It wouldn't be Halloween without a vampire or two. Did you know there are folk tales of vampire cats?
The Japanese believed in a certain variety of shapeshifting demon that appeared as a cat. This cat often had two tails, and sometimes it could change size, growing from an ordinary house cat until it became larger than a person. It was like a vampire, in that its main purpose seemed to be sucking blood from humans and killing them. After a vampire cat had killed someone, it would be able to transform into an exact copy of that person. It would use this ability to get close to new victims, who would not suspect until it was too late to save themselves.
We will leave you today with a musical tribute to the best Dracula of all time - Bela Lugosi!
Happy Halloween - one final scary post coming tomorrow! We are joining in on Camera Critters and Photo Hunt - Dark so do go by and visit them.
