A woman who believes she was born a cat has opened up about her life as a feline, describing how she has a superior sense sense of hearing and sight which allows her to hunt mice in the dark.
Nano, 20, from Oslo, Norway, makes the revelation in an interview published on the NRK P3 Verdens Rikeste Land YouTube channel, and it's been viewed 122,000 times.
And she claims to possess many feline characteristics including a hatred of water and the ability to communicate simply by meowing.
In the video Nano, who reflects her inner cat by wearing a pair of pointed ears and an artificial tail begins her interview with a series of rather convincing 'meows'. She then explains that she first discovered her true identity as a teenager.
'I realised I was a cat when I was 16 when doctors and psychologists found out what was "the thing" with me. Under my birth there was a genetic defect,''There is a dog over there,' she explains. 'Sometime I hiss when meeting dogs in the street. It's because of their behaviour and my instinct automatically reacts by hissing.'I hate water,' she says. 'Water is like you get the instinct to wash yourself in the face and stuff.
' Nano also stresses that, like the small four-legged animals, she loves to 'sleep in the sink and in the windowsill' although she doesn't comment further on the size of either item.
I can see better in the dark than in daylight. That's no problem,' 'I have been running a lot after animals that can be seen in the shadows.'
However she admits that despite her best efforts she has never managed to catch a mouse.
