A household fairy of Eastern Europe. They are female and sometimes appear as a normal woman and sometimes have a small head and skinny body. They help the people around the house by doing daily tasks and enjoy herding cattle. She comes out at night to spin cloth but anyone seeing her do this will soon die afterwards. The Kikimora also keep people awake at night by tickling them in their sleep and making whistling noises. If one is angered by this, they can be calmed by washing the pots in the house with a tea made from ferns.
