Beyond catty, downright feline

1981 cast of 'Cats'     (Fair Use)
Many have heard of “The Cat in the Hat.”  It’s perfectly understandable how a cat could snuggle within a fedora.

What’s far less probable, at least in worldly terms, is “The Cat in the Woman.”  No, this isn’t about a woman who swallowed a cat.  It isn’t even about a catty woman.

It is instead about a woman who’s convinced that she’s a cat trapped within a human body.  New York Daily News reports on a 20-year-old named Nano who claims to have “ultra-sharp hearing, laser night vision and fierce aversions to both dogs and water.”  She is also prone to walking on all fours, curling up in sinks, purring and meowing.

Some might say these are telltale signs of mental aberrations.  Others might chalk it all up to reincarnation “seepage.”  Is Nano recalling her former days as Queen of the Jungle, or had she seen “Cats” one too many times?
