An underwater cat from the tales of the Creek people of southern North America. At one time, Wikatcha transformed into a human and came inland to mate with one of the women in that town. The woman became pregnant and her relatives knowing the animal father of the child, decided to have the baby killed when it is born. The woman went to Wikatcha for help. Wikatcha raised a flood which destroyed the town and killed its people. Many people escaped and went to another town but the cat, woman and child were never seen again.
