The Bathroom Bogey

One of the Domovoi, he is a Sauna Spirit. He hides in the steam and is seldom seen. If you feel a soft touch things bode well — but a scratch from a claw could mean a scalding, a drowning — or a trapped cat.

Always leave some soap and hot water, for cleanliness in this case is very much next to godliness.
