Sorry about the late reply, I got really sick for a few days. And about the post approval thing, I just had a brain-fart the first time I posted.
I guess I'll just give the story of my awakening.
Like I said, I've never felt a strong connection to humans, but I never understood why. Ever since I was around 9 years old I identified as a cat. I felt a very strong connection to cats, but not to humans. My family were Jehovah's Witnesses, and they don't believe in the existence of the soul, so I believed it was a psychological difference.
I left the church when I was 16, mainly because after years of thought, I couldn't accept that I didn't have a soul. I could feel it, I thought. Then, when I was 19, I was introduced to the concept of therianthropy as a spiritual state. Like before, it felt kind of right, but I never tested it.
Last August I felt a drive to look into real vampirism and I realized my own vampiric tendencies. Which explained the empty feeling I'd had for years. And that's how I started to study energy work. And when I became more aware of my own energy, it clearly wasn't human or cat.
Demon was the first thing that came to mind, but I didn't want to believe it, so I tried to convince myself that I was anything but a demon. But I never could.
I don't think I can define what I mean. The word "feels" right. Also, if my senses are right, Kahoku and Simim have very similar energy signatures to my own.
I first saw MST3K's "The Giant Spider Invasion" when I was 4 years old and I've been a fan ever since.
