Transpecies | Woman Says She Is A Cat Trapped In A Human Body

We probably all feel a bit like a sleepy housecat when we have to get up for work in the morning.

A 20-year-old Norwegian woman believes that she is a cat, trapped in a human body. Nano claims she realised she was a cat when she was 16 years old, and has adopted feline mannerisms ever since.

The 20-year-old has opened up about her life as a puss, describing how she has a superior sense of hearing and sight which allows her to hunt mice in the dark.

She made the revelation in a video, which has been viewed over 1 million times.

Nano claims to possess many feline characteristics including a hatred of water and the ability to communicate simply by meowing.

The young woman shows off her cat characteristics by wearing fake ears and an artificial tail. She 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.

As they walked through Oslo’s central station, the interviewer asked Nano what she could hear and see that a normal person might not.

“Suitcases rolling on the ground. Keys clinking in pockets. People with ice under their shoes.”

Then all of a sudden, she lets out a hiss and takes a step back.

“There is a dog over there. Sometime I hiss when meeting dogs in the street. It’s because of their behaviour and my instinct automatically reacts by hissing.”

Nano wears a pair of pink fluffy paws with which to groom herself, and feels especially like doing so when she is in contact with water.

When asked if she was born as the wrong species, she said: “Yes, born in the wrong species.”

Nano prefers to crawl around on her hands and knees, and paws at windows when she wants to go outside.

She also said, despite their size, she can sleep in the sink and on windowsills.

“It’s also obvious that I’m a cat when I start purring and meowing. 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.”

Nano claims she has night vision – but has never caught a mouse. She has a friend called Sven, who has a cat personality.

They meow at each other in the park.

“He has something called “personalities” and one of them is a cat,” she says.

“So you are born as a cat, but he has become one?’ the presenter queries.

“He is human but has someone in his head that is a cat, and I am born as a cat,” Nano confirms.

The young woman said her life as a cat was “exhausting” but she doesn’t want to live as a human.

“My psychologist told me I can grow out of it, but I doubt it,” she concludes. “I think I will be cat all my life.”
