Born This Way

Take a break and meet Nano, the woman who claims to be a cat

Cat lady… as in a lady who is a cat.

A NORWEGIAN WOMAN has claimed that, contrary to appearances, she is actually a cat.

The 20-year-old Nano has explained her predicament on the YouTube channel of NRK P3, Norway’s national broadcaster, giving examples of how being a cat impacts on her everyday life.

Nano starts the video by asserting that she was born a cat, but only realised that she was one when she was 16.

Taken by the host to a shopping centre, Nano is asked to explain what she can hear, to which she responds:

Suitcases rolling on the ground, keys clinking in pockets. People with ice crampons under their shoes

At one point, a man walks past with a dog, making Nano respond by jumping back and start hissing.

She explains that other sure fire signs that she’s a cat are the fact that she purrs and meows and that she likes to sleep in the sink and on windowsills.

On the topic of catching mice, she says that she had tried, but to date hadn’t been successfully in actually snaring one.

The interview concludes with Nano explaining that her psychologist thinks that she’ll grow out of being a cat, something that she doesn’t agree with.

The video has now been viewed more than 250,000 times.
