A Norwegian woman is claiming that she is actually a cat trapped in a woman’s body — and that the fact that she has a human body is a “genetic defect.”
“I have been a cat all my life … I realized I was a cat when I was 16 when doctors and psychologists found out what was ‘the thing’ with me,” the 20-year old woman, who goes by the name “Nano,” explained in a YouTube video.
Because Nano believes that her true identity is as a feline, she sees no choice but to live her life as one . . . even wearing cat ears, a tail, and fluffy pink paws that she grooms herself with in order to express her true self.
Nano claimed to have feline characteristics such as superior hearing, better night vision than day vision, the urge to hunt mice (although she’s never actually caught one), and a fear of water.
“It’s because of their behavior and my instinct automatically reacts by hissing,” she said.
“It’s also obvious that I’m a cat when I start purring and meowing,” she added. “And walking around on four legs and stuff like that.”
(Yes — it’s “obvious” that you’re a cat. Completely indisputable!)
This may seem pretty weird to you, but don’t worry… Nano’s not alone. In fact, she said she has a best buddy named “Svien” and that they talk to each other by meowing.(Notice that Sven is different than she is because he simply has “an” identity as a cat. Nano says that, unlike her, he was not “born as a cat.”)
“He is human but has someone in his head that is a cat, and I am born as a cat,” she said.
“My psychologist told me I can grow out of it, but I doubt it,” she added. “I think I will be cat all my life.”
Well, duh. If you were born one, then you obviously would be one all your life, right? All of this makes perfect sense.
