Something about cats and water ✨
Something about cats and water ✨
Drink plenty of water, have a snack and don't forget:
You are LOVED.
You are WORTHY OF LOVE.
You are STRONG.
You are DOING YOUR BEST.
Even if it's a not so good morning. ^^;
Have some breakfast, drink some water or juice, keep up that Vitamin C and stay hydrated!
I may not have slept well, but I made a really good tuna/egg sandwich for breakfast! Evens out my mood a little bit. ^^
I hope everyone has a good night / day! ^^
Goodnight, here's a reminder to stay hydrated, be safe, wear a mask and have a nice snack! Take care of yourself, you deserve love and kindness! <3
Nothing like settling down for a nap in your favorite blanket..
Hello! I'm Mae, A snow leopard therian bringing a new server to life.
It's tricky to find servers based solely around feline types, so I made The Clowder!
A 13+ server that's system friendly with pluralkit available for use.
There's bots to play with and various sections for chatting; including role access Vent/TW and system areas. There is a static blacklist in place.
Copinglinks, otherhearted, therians, fictionkins and nonhuman alters are all welcome to join! Not a regular cat? We have a place for you too!
Do bear in mind this is not a roleplay server so Kin For Fun folk aren't welcome.
Any questions just drop me a DM!
I have a tail and ears and Im looking for clotheswhich are more snow leopard like. Im tempted to buy a custom onesie for the sake of of having a long tail lol
I never realized my instinct to take food and “hide” with it (take it to my room) was so intertwined with my therian experience till now. I can’t even eat in restaurants hardly, the anxiety of having my meal exposed just makes me not hungry, then once I’m home or in the car I’m able to eat it. It’s even a running joke in my family not to take me out to eat unless I’m in an out of the way booth
being nonhuman/otherkin/therian whilst autistic can be a unique experience.
Sometimes it means you struggle with feeling human, or understanding your humanity. Maybe you’ve always found nonhuman creatures easier to read and communicate with than humans, so you felt more naturally linked with them. Maybe you’ve felt detached from humanity because of how confusing the society humans have built is.
If you’re an autistic person who struggles understanding gender or struggles to describe gender, you may use words linked to your nonhuman identity because it’s easier to understand. Maybe a xenogender or neopronouns related to the species you’re kin with.
Maybe your special interest has become such an integral part of you over the years that it’s part of your identity.
And that’s okay.
Be proud of your wonderful autistic nonhuman self, no matter how strange it may be to others.
The urge to head butt and paw at people I love is my eternal curse
I am (Probably) going to draw my own pfp! I’m probably going to forget to do it or won’t be bothered hehe
Some times I get phantom limbs. Yesterday, I got a phantom nose. It was weird because It felt like my whole face was different, but it wasn’t. But it was also cool
When I was younger I use to roar all the time, I can’t remember why. And i use to imagine myself as a lion. I imagined myself as a male lion, even though I’m afab. And now I’m a transman lol
Decided to make my kin types through picrew to give a better picture for others of how I see myself.

Also, I wouldn’t have been inspired if I didn’t see @kitdeecat ‘s profile pic.
It's 6 am, I woke up early and can't get back to sleep, and I'm feeling inspired. So I thought I'd write a bit about my therian identities. Hopefully not too much, but I am prone to ramble...
The first facet of my nonhuman identity I discovered was my wolf theriotype. My awakening was rough - lasted about 2 years, and I realised I was nonhuman before finding the community which meant I very much thought I was alone in my experiences. Thankfully it was only a year after I awakened that I found the online therian community. It took me several more years to really narrow down my identity to what it is today.
I identify as a Eurasian wolf (Canis lupus lupus). But I'm a particular sub-variety of Eurasian wolf, found in Finland and around the Finnish-Russian border. These wolves are notable because some of them have a particular yellowish or golden tint to their fur - which is something that's always resonated with me. Combined with what I believe are past life memories, which include some details of the kind of prey we hunted and the landscape we lived in, I feel pretty confident in identifying as one of this particular variety of wolf.
Much later I realised I had some feline-adjacent feelings in here too - things that I had ignored or denied for a very long time. But when I started to acknowledge it, it was like opening a floodgate. It felt right to me, to know myself as something "feline". At first I identified as an Amur leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis), but it never quite felt right, and I didn't stop searching just in case I found something that really clicked.
It started to fall into place when I was meditating once and realised I had, of all things, phantom sabre-teeth. Not like a smilodon - not so long as those, but still very much longer than a leopards'. I started to do research; I knew I wasn't a sabre-toothed cat because I had a long tail. After much digging I stumbled upon nimravids, the "false sabre-toothed cats". Not really cats at all - primitive proto-felines that walked plantigrade like a bear.
It suddenly all made sense. I realised that the experiences I'd had while meditating of being some flat-footed predator were actually connected to my "feline" feelings. And the nimravid matched everything that I saw myself to be.
I looked extensively for my specific kind of nimravid, but nothing I found quite resonated.
Much later, I coincidentally saw an article of a supposed "sabre-toothed cat" skull while browsing the internet. I immediately recognised the skull as nimravid, not cat at all - and I couldn't shake the fact that it looked like me.
So I read the article - it was identified as a Hoplophoneus (though still incorrectly called a cat). I did some more research on the genus, and everything just... fell into place. Even the location and time period felt right.
If I were to guess at a particular species, I'd say probably Hoplophoneus occidentalis. But I can't find enough information to say for sure.
There's definitely a lot more I could say here, but this post is long enough already, aha! I look forward to rambling more about this in the future. ^^
Went to the water park with my (non-kin) gf yesterday. Second I hit the water I tensed up like an angry cat, and she had to literally drag me through while I grumbled. She just laughed and said “your catkin is showing!”
It was miserable but funny
went on renee's garden last night, and i really want to buy the gourmet green cat treats... i have wanted to buy some wheatgrass and greens for my son and for myself when i have those grass eating cravings.. also it would look so cute to have little pots of it in my room
that and i want to grow catmint indoors but.. i don't know how well that is going to fair i think it'll need more sun, but also my son and my aunt's cat might murder it before it grows to its full. i want to make catmint tea, i was reading up about how it has a calming effect (also i got the idea from othercon haha i heard some other cats actually smoke catnip which is really interesting.. but i don't really have an interest in smoking it). also have been thinking about growing silver vine and valerian too as alternatives if catmint doesn't fair well.

I’m allergic to cats. If p-shifting were real, would I be allergic to myself?
