Re: Otherkin Pets/Animals
Considering what the main focus of my mind has been for the last eighteen hours, I just had to resurrect this thread. ^_^
I don't honestly know if all of my pets have been something else previously. I do know that my Shetland Sheltie, Trooper, reincarnated as my grey tabby (not my precious Chi, but one I had in high school) cat Silica.
Seriously, the cat had the exact same mannerisms as Trooper had. The way of sitting- head tilted slightly to the left, tail waving- the gluttony, the screwing with my dad's head, the idiocy about running into doors. It was creepy. (Ever seen a cat eat a jalapeno? I have.) I told Mom that having Silica could make me believe in reincarnation- i.e. I was still a 'Witness' at that point in time.
Knowing that, I keep hoping that my beloved angel horse Pistol will reincarnate for me. *crossing fingers* I'll know him when I see him, and by all the gods, he will be mine. As for current pets... *grin*
All of them have that door quirk. Seriously- if you go into the bathroom in my apartment, and then try to come out, you'll be tripping over four interested felines. Cricket especially cries when I vanish in for a shower. (She seems to think Mommy will vanish down the drain. It's highly amusing.) Chi is hilarious. If there's a cup or glass with liquid you're drinking in it, she'll put her right forepaw into the glass, get it wet and then lick the drink off of it. (Absolutely hysterical the first time she drank Sprite. I mean freakin' hysterical.)
If Laurie was anyone in a previous life, she was definately a highly sought-after noblewoman. I swear that cat is an absolute princess. (Yes, Princess is her nickname. Knowing her makes it entirely suitable.) You touch her when SHE chooses, not before. If the lady decides to grace your lap, you shall remain motionless unless she deems petting allowable. She is such a priss, I swear I'm surprised she can bring herself to use a communal litterbox. (I give her no choice: I'm not cleaning four litterboxes.)
Sekhem... *facepalm* Good gods, I'd swear she's me as a cat. Seriously. Have you ever seen a cat yawn and fall off of a coffee table? Or jump for a windowsill, catch it with her front paws, and then look confused and simply fall? (Not landing on her feet, either.) She's an absolute love, adores being petted and is finicky about being picked up.
Chi loves to watch violent movies. Cricket likes Led Zepplin, and Laurie has a taste for heavy metal. Sekhem enjoys pawing the screen while playing Super Mario World. (Which has resulted in many Mario deaths and empty cigarette boxes being flung at the cat.) Chi likes to sleep with Mommy and Daddy- specifically under Mommy's chin, with the smothering tail flung over my nose- and Cricket is green-eyed like no one's business. If Chi's in my lap, Cricket tries to sleep on my chest and roll onto Chi 'accidentally.' *snerk* Laurie prefers to sit on character sheets, and they're ALL gamer cats. They play with our dice, hide in the Magic card cabinet, pounce controllers while we're playing (Chi was batting at the screen while I was in the middle of a boss battle for Ninja Gaiden II) and hide amidst my gaming books.
What's the point of all of this? (Other than blabbing about my precious, beloved, adorable children. ^_^) I don't know if all of them have had previous lives as anything but cats, but ALL animals have their own personality and quirks, be they otherkin or not. ^_^
