    why not, does it really affect you what other people do? The business should also offer a dog walking service and other animal services. Once the Animal is of no more use to the bussiness, they can humanly put the animal down, they will save a bundle in health care costs.

    As long as they cover it up I don't mind if people use litter boxes. Just don't scoot around on the carpet to wipe your butt.

    I'll be damned if my children have to share a litterbox with these people.

    There's some plausible genetic and neurological links to transgenderism in the context of how different hormones affect the body and its development. Fun fact for you the DSM-V (psych diagnosis bible) says that gender dysphoria is gender variance and therefore not a mental disorder, rather a diagnosis to identify the issues surrounding gender dysphoria (discomfort elicited feeling like you're the wrong gender). France however (as of a couple years ago anyways) considered transgenderism a psychotic disorder. Prime example of the social influence of what is mental illness, what is not, and to what degree.

    There is obviously no logical biological explanation why a human would intuitively think that she should be a cat... or any other animal. It's not like humans have cat DNA and therefore can have a cat brain. Cat's aren't likely conscious enough to know what they are.

    It's a false equivalency IMO to consider gender dysphoria and species dysphoria as on the same level. Clearly however this girl has something going on. I'm not sure it would even be considered dysphoria depending how comfortable she is in her human body. She may even just be classifiable an absurd body modifier.

    It poses an interesting question- do you treat someone who acts like this. They are content with their life scampering around like a cat, unaffected by how people treat them, do you allow that behavior? I imagine it must be hard to find relationships and jobs if you go around meowing dressed like a cat. But who's to say you need to provide an intervention if they're not dangerous or discontent?

    What does logic have to do with people with insanity and those who encourage them?

    What Mr. Muscles there doesn't realize, fish are not a native staple of a cat's diet, especially when cats loathe swimming to the depth needed to find the tasty fish...

    In other words, he might not know all the details.

    He's got the same personality of alcoholic, anger-prone radio show shock jocks that reel in viewers with bumpkin stories like that one to trick them on bigger issues since, obviously, he comes across with common sense on the smaller stuff so he's going to be no different on the bigger issues.

    Having said that, on the kitty issue he's right - why are people enabling those deluded individuals, since "psychopath" is not accurate since the people interviewed are not discussing lack of concern for other people and they certainly don't come across as being normal... Classic definition, it's arguable if his usage of the word is correct or not: https://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/psychopathy

    Whoa, whoa, whoa...don't go infusing this discussion with things like facts and logic. We have a real issue here that we need to meld together with another issue to make them appear to be the same thing so that we can go crazy over it. Just step off, bro!

    I wonder how many refugees fled back to Syria after they encountered Cat Girl?

    In Cat Girl's case, she just needs to quit being so desperate for attention.

    Well said/asked. :)

    I have to wonder if this thread is just for fun, or a back handed jab at the transgender issue, or both?

    The cat people need to stick to dry food so their poop isn't so messy. Meow mix flavor medley is probably the best choice, unless they're over 40 in which case they should choose the diet formula.

    Be thankful they're not Bird People. That'd be a lot of newspaper.

    If they aren't caged birds they tend to poop all over everything. Be careful where you park your car, and stay out of the same parks they visit, don't feed them bread.

    Friend of mine had a toucan. Cute bird but only eats soft fruits and berries. Basically a diarrhea machine.
