I, personally, don't know what the possibility is of my two feline housemates being otherkin, but these girls are awfully insightful when it comes to how we're feeling, and I swear sometimes that they can read. The youngest likes to watch me type on the computer. O-o

Re: Otherkin Pets/Animals
Animals do seem to have some sixth sense.
A cat was once left behind when its family moved house about 500 miles away and about 3 weeks later they discovered their cat outside their front door. It had somehow known where its family had moved to and had travelled 500 miles.

My Dog can usually sense strange things like when people are unhappy and knows when the postman is about a mile down our road. Perhaps she is otherkin but she may just be a normal dog.

Re: Otherkin Pets/Animals
I, along with the rest of the family and close friends, think that one of my cats was human at some point. She has this "paranoid mother" attitude about her, like how she constantly hates to have a door closed if anyone is in them. She eats when the rest of the family eats as well, and stresses herself out to the point of pulling her fur out. She also has a tendency to throw up in your bed if you insult her.

She scares me...

My cats do the door thing too, mostly the bathroom door.

I have no idea why they'd want to see what people do in there, anyways.

Re: Otherkin Pets/Animals
I know there is something different about my cat. Don't know what Id call it really. I love him to death though and it makes me sad that I can't have him around me.

Re: Otherkin Pets/Animals
I had one cat that I swore up and down was the reincarnation of some sort of Elizabethan-era noblewoman. She was prim, proper, never sprawled, only perched, made very quiet and delicate 'ack' noises instead of meowing, and would instantly come to comfort you the moment you felt down. *chuckles*

But the animal I truly think was a sapient being once is a little kitten that is trying to find a home where I work... (WANT! omg want so badly)... While he's perfectly willing to play with other animals when they're around, what he really wants is to be with people. He, at 3 months old, is entirely content to curl up in one hand and lean against you for *hours*. He wants to be next to you, constantly, and watched everything very intently. There's just something about him that practically yells "not a kitten inside!"

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. ^_^

Re: Otherkin Pets/Animals
One of my cats, who was obviously a Labrador Retriever in a past life, loves jalapeno peppers. I found him digging through a pastrami sandwhich I got from togos once. One would think he was going after all that wonderful fatty meat, but noooo... he was nabbing the peppers! And then he growled at me when I tried to take it away. He also adores french fries, and habanero-flavored chips.

The little prim'n'proper female cat I mentioned earlier loved asparagus.
