Bast, the anthropomorphic cat-headed goddess, is a character from Neil Gaiman's comic book series, The Sandman. She is the DC Universe version of the goddess Bast of Egyptian mythology, patron of the moon, cats, women, and secrets.

She was once a major goddess, but the loss of her believers over time has significantly reduced her powers. She is quite flirtatious with Dream when she appeared in the Dreaming during The Season of Mists, and seems to have a history of attraction to him which ultimately came to nothing. He sometimes goes to her for advice or companionship. Dream is almost affectionate with her, and in her own words, she adores him.

Bast has also appeared in issues of Wonder Woman and Hawkgirl, as well as in Gaiman's novel American Gods. She is one of the chief goddesses worshiped by the Amazons of Bana-Mighdall.
