I mainly joined just to read but etiquette and site rules dictate I should introduce myself.

I mostly go by Kitsy, but you might know me as Kallistei from the Werelist, or by the extended version of Kitsy, Khemaatsi, on religious or magic-related forums. I'm a great horned owl and marbled cat therianthrope that has been active in the therian community on and off for three years, knew about myself much longer than that, but mostly lurk nowadays. I'm a skeptical, pansexual, Kemetic, totemist, mostly female artist and student of Egyptology at the University of Memphis. Studying cognitive ethology, cameo shifting, plants, and origami are my current favorite hobbies.

I don't like talking about myself, especially when no one asked anyway, but am willing to elaborate if you have questions.

Welcome to the forums Kitsy. I won't ask questions right now because I don't want to deprive Seraphyna of that. After though I may ask some.

Welcome <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> *tosses Hannah a cookie* So what brought you to the conclusion that you're a great horned owl/marbled cat therian? Oh, and in a non-kin related querie, do you have any sources you would recommend for information about Sekhmet?

Sup, guys!

I discovered myself to be a great horned owl and marbled cat person after years of examining myself, researching animal behavior and anatomy as well as studying cognitive ethology, and getting to know animal energies. I have constant full-body phantom sensations (I'm a contherian), which pins it down undeniably for me because not many other species have those ear tufts, and the body language they display was of assistance as well because marbled cats move and hold their tails differently from other cats. Then there is the feeling that "I should fly like this" and "my spots should look more like this" just like I know that when I look in the mirror my eyes should be green, my skin white, my hair brown.

Of course, most of that was perhaps redundant in the end because, really, I just know. I've noticed most people don't take that as a satisfying answer, however, and while the above is all true it's always boiled down to "this is how I exist" to me.

While I'm at it I should probably note that I believe therianthrope is neurobiological and psychological in origin, as I've noticed from skimming the forums that the general assumption here is that we've had past lives. I should also note that this does not mean I don't think it can be spiritual, also. I don't know what comes first is all. (Then there is the matter of my brain being the how of therianthrope, not the why... stupid human curiosity...) But the point is I don't believe in reincarnation.

For information on Sekhmet, here are some links:
http://www.africaresource.com/rasta/seso...e-uwechia/ a good starting place, basic bio.
http://www.sekhmettemple.com/ one of her temples.
http://www.kemet.org/glossary/sekhmet.html and their forums are a good place to ask specific questions.
http://absurdism.org/kemet/ has a couple of nice essays.
http://allthingssekhmet.com/ a devotional site by a priestess of Sekhmet.

Re: ...
I'm on the bench, too, about the cause of this condition. I believe it to be a mix of spiritual and psychological/neurobiological factors (my MO is that nothing is just one thing <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->). I look forward to exploring it and seeing, hopefully, some research come forth. I hope to get some psychology students or teachers at my university involved, there are a few openminded ones. I'm not sure how well it would work, but I think any study is a step forward for now.

We deliberate on that, too. We believe in reincarnation and other spiritual things that could explain being Otherkin/therian but that doesn't make it the automatic explanation for being 'kin and we know enough about memory to be skeptical of ours.

Welcome to OKP!

And to elaborate on Sera's initial question, how did you differentiate between great horned owl and marbled cat? Do you experience them as a hybrid creature or individually? And did you discover them around the same time or was one first?

I guess you could say I experience myself as a hybrid humanowlcat, and I am griffin-like in phantom limbs, but I know what they feel like to experience individually too. Great horned owl and marbled cat are two very different animals and I can tell what parts of myself belong to each rather easily. I discovered my feline attributes first, but remember experiencing great horned owl long before I recognized it for what it was.
