Monstrous Monday: The Yule Cat

In the same lands that gave us Grýla, The Christmas Witch we also get the Yule Cat, also known as Jólakötturinn or Jólaköttur in Iceland.
Described as a huge and vicious cat that preys on people that did not get new clothes for Yule/Christmas.

That’s brilliant! I never heard of Yule Cats before. I’m going to see if I can use one in the session I have coming up before Christmas.
