Have you ever heard of the Celtic folklore surrounding the idea of the cat-sìth? The common concept is that the cat-sìth is a fairy creature that looks like a big black cat with a white spot on its chest, and it is said to haunt the Scottish Highlands. Some versions of this folklore vary a bit, though. For example, one version indicates that instead of being a fairy, the cat-sìth is actually a witch who can transform into a cat nine times. On the ninth time, the witch remains a cat forever. And that is one of the potential origins of the common saying that cats have nine lives.
