Bakeneko - Wikipedia
'The bakeneko (化け猫, "changed cat") is a type of Japanese yōkai, or supernatural creature. According to its name, it is a cat that has changed into a yōkai. It is often confused with the nekomata, another cat-like yōkai,[2] and the distinction between the two can often be quite ambiguous.'

Reportedly, Totoro's catbus is a bakeneko, as is the Maneki Neko good luck totem.

Totoro Isn't All Cute. For Some, He's the God of Death.
"Everyone, do not worry," read the Studio Ghibli statement. "There's absolutely no truth or configuration that Totoro is the God of Death or that Mei is dead in My Neighbor Totoro."
