Wampus Cat

The Wampus Cat is a Native American Legend from the Cherokee tribe.  The story tells of a woman who would disguise herself in the skin of a cougar to be able to observe the “male-only” rituals performed by the tribesmen.  When she was discovered, a curse was put on her, combining her body with that of the cat.  She is said to be a ferocious animal that still terrorizes the wilderness in Tennessee.  Here is my depiction of what this mythical creature would look like in real life-
