In Egyptian mythology, Tefnut is a goddess of water and fertility. She was created by Ra from his semen or mucus. With her brother, Shu, she was the mother of Seb and Nuit.

Tefnut and Shu once argued, and she left Egypt. Shu quickly decided he missed her, but she changed into a cat that destroyed any man or god that approached. Thoth, disguised, eventually succeeds in convincing her to return.
