I got this manga at Barnes and Noble. It's adapted from a novel that is itself a prequel to the "Witch's House" video game.

The story opens with young Ellen, a girl suffering from a strange and debilitating illness, who's living in apparent poverty with her mostly-absent father and distracted mother. Her only friend is a stray black cat - who winds up dead on the street, so she drags herself out to bury the pitiful body. But when her mother abandons her and she finds herself alone and desperate, what should appear but the black cat, alive again - and offering her shelter, healing, and a long-term deal: she stays in the mysterious house that the cat's brought her to, and she entices others inside.

Early on it seems that Ellen's quite sympathetic, and even when she begins to do really unfortunate things it's mainly because she's so alone and desperate, but as time passes she grows used to her new position as resident heart-of-darkness and lurer of children to a painful doom, and even seems to enjoy it...

See Volume 2 for the conclusion.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the game, with some references to the adaptations.]
