Neko-Mata (猫又 Neko-Mata, lit. Forked Cat) is a type of Bake-Neko. When a cat's tail grows long it forks in two and the Bake-Neko is then called a Neko-Mata. Higher stages possess increased numbers of tails such as Neko-Shō in the fifth series with three tails.
This superstition may have some connection to the breeding of the Japanese Bobtail.
In Shinpen GeGeGe no Kitarō, Neko-Mata swallowed a scientific paper and read the paper within his stomach and understood the content. Then he used the new knowledge to take one's life force to make him younger, and became a Neko-Shō.
Feline Transformation: Neko-Mata in the fourth anime adaption can transform his body from his usual form to a more feline-like one.
