Cravings..
Ok, since I'm still learning about this whole thing. is it possible for a therian to have cravings? If it is, what are some of the "symptoms" so to speak of it so if I do I'll know what would be going on?

I might be completely missing it (itmight be to do with the fact it's nearly 1AM here) but do you mean cravings as in food? Cravings to hunt or prowl in the woods? What do you mean by the word?

Re: Cravings..
I guess cravings in hunting in the woods. Or cravings in like how a vampire would crave for blood. But for a therian, how a therian would typically be a predator. A predator would go after the meat I guess.

Re: Cravings..
Many therians, even me who isn't technically one, have cravings to run, be outside, hunt, act like their animal in general, eat red meat (either raw, or rather rare)...that type of thing.

Re: Cravings..
I understand what you mean, I haev cravings of running hunting and if there is somone I don't like or I'm sacred then I'll hiss and growl before I can stop.
Thing is I usualy try to keep things like that underwraps, other people start freaking out.

Re: Cravings..
If you're referring to cravings regarding running, hunting, stalking, etc. then yes, I do experience that as a therian. I suppose what you crave would be dependant on what animal you identify as though. For example, a mouse wouldn't necessarily feel the need to hunt prey (although they do eat some insects) like a cat would. And a crocodile probably wouldn't feel the need for a good run through the woods. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> But in regards to my theriotype, I often want to stalk and then chase prey animals that I see around my home.

As for cravings of specific types of food, I suppose everyone experiences this sometimes whether they're a therian or not. However, if I haven't eaten in awhile and I'm very hungry I'll often slip into a minor mental shift that causes me to crave warm, red meat. This is probably because my body instinctively knows that there's a lot of protein in red meat and a fresh kill would obviously still be warm.

Re: Cravings..
I dunno about cravings for hunting, but whenever I see a flock of pigeons, I often want to run after them to try and catch one. Or sometimes just to run after them for fun. <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin --> As for food cravings, I often find leaves to look delicious, everytime I watch Land Before Time I get hungry. ; )

Re: Cravings..
I too crave hunting, running, howling.
But, in my darker moods, I crave tearing and ripping, the fighting that would release my anger.

Re: Cravings..
I do crave the thought of being able to run through the forest hunting for my own food as well. I also have a craving just be able to act more like a wolf in general.

Re: Cravings..
How do you (plural) distinguish between "therian cravings" and regular human cravings?

Humans are indeed animals - the desire, sometimes very intense desire, to go wild now and again is part of being human.
