Nekomata

I read about this interesting folklore monster of Japan called a nekomata. It is a cat that has been allowed to grow too large, and so has gained terrible powers. Its tail splits into two, and it can walk on its hind legs and speak as a human; it can even grow to five feet tall. A nekomata can light fireballs in your house, and I'm pretty sure it ought to do this with its forked tail, sparkplug like. So if you have any fat cats, watch out.
