Is trans-specieism a thing?
A Norwegian woman is claiming to be a cat trapped inside a human body-- a body she claims is a “genetic defect.”
She goes by the name “Nano”, hisses at dogs, is afraid of water, and walks on hands and knees. And, of course, she dons fake cat ears and communicates by meowing.
“I realised I was a cat when I was 16 when doctors and psychologists found out what was “the thing” with me. Under my birth there was a genetic defect,” she explains in her YouTube video.
“There is a dog over there,” she explained to her interviewer. “Sometime I hiss when meeting dogs in the street. It’s because of their behaviour and my instinct automatically reacts by hissing.”
Nano insists that her behavior proves she is indeed a feline.
“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.”
“I can see better in the dark than in daylight. That’s no problem,” she says. “I have been running a lot after animals that can be seen in the shadows.”
But Nano concedes she has not yet caught a mouse.
She has a friend, Sven, who she plays and communicates through meows with. But she points out that Sven is not truly a cat stuck inside a human body like she is.
“He has something called “personalities” and one of them is a cat,” she says. “He is human but has someone in his head that is a cat, and I am born as a cat,” she explains.
Apparently her psychologist is not convinced she is a cat.
“My psychologist told me I can grow out of it, but I doubt it,” she said. “I think I will be cat all my life.”
