Cattywampus //

The wampus cat is a creature of Appalachian folklore, primarily from North Carolina and Tennessee. Reports of its size and shape vary, but all agree that it’s part wildcat, and all agree that it can scream like a motherf*&$er. Where did it come from? What is it really? Will we ever know?
