The Veshtitza is said to an old woman who is possessed by an evil spirit. The soul leaves her body at night and wanders around until it enters the body of a hen or a black moth. When in the body of the animal, the Veshtitza flies around until she finds a home where there is a sleeping baby or young child.
The Veshtitza’s favorite food is a young heart.
Sometimes, all of the Vestitza would flock together and join in the branches of a tree and hold a meeting while snacking on what they’d gathered earlier in the night. Sometimes old women who have traits of a witch may join in the meetings.
