Girl Believes She's a Cat Trapped in a Human's Body and I Believe Her

Like most cats, Nano likes to hunt mice, hiss at dogs, and groom with her paws. Unlike most cats, Nano was born human. I stand with Nano.

“I have been a cat all my life,” Nano, a 20-year-old Norwegian (and cat), told a reporter. “I realized I was a cat when I was 16 when doctors and psychologists found out what was ‘the thing’ with me.”

In the interview, posted on YouTube, Nano crawls around on the ground, explains the benefits of seeing at night, rejects her psychologist’s suggestion that this is a phase that she’ll eventually grow out of, and introduces the reporter to her friend Svein, who—though human—also has a cat personality.

If Svein stands with Nano, so do I.

Asked to say “‘Come on, let’s go’ in cat language,” Nano replies, “Meow meow meow.”

Chilling.

I stand with Nano.
