Nano from Oslo, Norway looks like a human but insists she's a cat.
The 20-year-old made the revelation in an interview published on NRK P3 Verdens Rikeste Land‘s YouTube channel.
Nano says she's just like traditional cats, she hates water and dogs and can communicate by meowing. Nano compensates for her lack of cat ears by wearing a pair of pointed ears on a head band.
She will also wear an artificial tail and sometimes walk on her hands and feet.
‘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 says in the video.
Nano says her super-sensitive ‘cat hearing’ permits her to hear things we humans cannot.
She also likes to sleep in enclosed spaces 'such as the sink'.
Nano has a friend – Svien – who has a cat ‘personality’; Nano explains that he has several personalities, one of which is a cat, while she actually is a cat. The pair often communicate with meows.
‘I think I will be a cat all my life,’ she says.
