Quoth the Skogkatt:

“The porch in which you are about to step is protected. My keeper is content with her religion, gives donations at the office, and has enough magazine subscriptions. There is nothing we need from you. Now leave.”

Kith Excerpt:

The blessed of Frejya, the Norse Goddess of love and fertility, the Skogkatts are a Disir (Kith) bred of both a cat’s madness, and the simple pleasures of domesticity. The Kith is exclusively female and is prevalent in the Elder Veddas and other Norse Mythologies. They pulled the Chariot of Freyja, bore Baldur the Beautiful to his Grave, caught Rats in Loki Fire-Hairs magic boat, and when Thor the Thunderer tried to lift Jormungandr the World-Wyrm, it was in the disguise of a Skogkatt. (Although some Skogkatts today still brag that the Skogkatt was in a disguise of Jormungandr the World-Wyrm).

In modern times, the Skogkatt is still the face of madness and home life. Each Skogkatt has a home somewhere. Often a nice young married couple, or a Grandmother whose children have moved on. The Skogkatt performs a ritual that binds the house-hold to herself, granting blessings to the house, The Ritual ensures that both parties are loved by each other, but are still to go and come as they please.

Still as capricious as they always have been, this ancient Litter serves as a reminder that the world of mortal men should never be treated trivially. Whether God or Fae, Witch or Demon, if you disregard the Skogkatt’s loved ones, somebody will ensure retaliation.



“I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.”
― Jean Cocteau
