I'm not quite sure, but I think Hand Puppet Fetish is filed under Agalmatophilia.

I feel like I need the backstory to this.

You need to ask?

This is correct.

Cat, cats, cats.

Aon cat, dha cait, tri cait, ceathair cait....

The singular, cat, would sound like cudth. The plural cait would sounds like kutch.

The pronunciations are approximate, incidentally. In the singular cat, both the c and the t are broad consonants (rough equivalent, hard consonants in English). Broad is pronounced against the teeth if possible, so "T" takes a "th" sound. With cait, the c remains broad but the t becomes slender (soft consonants in English), and is therefore pronounced with the tongue against the back gums, so that it makes a sort of ch sound. (as a side note, if c were slender, it would sound like a kyuh, with the yuh being very slight.)

Quote
the lure of theriac lay in its exotic, even repulsive content (viper’s flesh as the main ingredient), its cost (exorbitant), and the supposed difficulty in preparing it. Arnald de Villanova, a professor at the medical school of Montpellier around 1300, wrote an entire treatise on the topic, “On the dosage of theriac medicines” (De dosi tyriacalium medicinarum).

Best I could do, looking for something that rhymed with/was phonetically similar to crack.
