Puffy Cat Incoming
Greetings!

I'm Obsydian, a 28 year old female who identifies as a Pallas cat therian. You may know me from Tumblr, or other forums.
For a long while I thought I was just a domestic cat, but the phantom shifts didn't correlate to the anatomy correctly. It was more recently that I discovered I was actually a Pallas cat after seeing a photo of one online.

Welcome to OKP!

I do remember a Pallas cat therian from The Werelist, are you one and the same?

Of course!
Finding this theriotype wasn't a huge process, but it hit me like a brick. When I phantom shift, my ears feel less like those of a domestic cat, they are lower on the sides of my head, but above my human ears. The shape is a bit different as well. I felt kind of stocky and fluffy, but many of the long-haired breeds weren't doing it for me, not even mixes. Persians were way out of the ballpark.
For a while I just let it sit in the back of my mind, I mean, maybe my human ears were confusing the position of my cat ears? Maybe they were trying to hybridize into something understandable? It didn't feel like it.
I had seen Pallas cats before, years ago, and they seemed so weirdly familiar that I backed away from them. I was weirded out for some reason, and soon forgot all about it.

Then more recently, I saw another picture of one on Tumblr. I had that same strange feeling, but mixed with something more. I was intrigued. I looked up all the information I could, as well as photos, and it hit me. Something finally clicked. Between the shifts, the habits, and the habitat they live in, that was me. I saw myself in that cat, and perhaps that's why I backed away the first time. Now I understand.

Thank you!
Yes, I'm pretty sure it's me! At least, I haven't seen any other Pallas cat's around anywhere, it would be cool if I did.
