There are two solutions to this. If you have Osvald, learn the Elemental Barrage skill. This strikes multiple times, dealing more damage than a single attack. Alternatively, if you have a Medium Soulstone, this can typically defeat Caits in a single blow. Any type of magic damage will work.

It is extremely worthwhile to defeat these enemies before they run, as they provide a ton of experience and Leaves. This makes them a great way to level up and grind money.
