    Quite Literally

    I'm taking this group quite literally. All my life I have had odd moments where, for a few minutes at a time, I feel like I'm not just a human, but a human AND something else. Most often it is a big cat of some sort, but it is in no way limited to that. The most recent...

    Not Socially Acceptable

    A few days ago, I pressured someone I deeply care about very hard for sex. She is my ex-girlfriend. We had just broken up recently, and I was going nuts for a few days. I have never had sex before, I am a virgin. I'm 17. She is also 17, two months older than...

    Thought I Might Contribute....

    Ever since I was young, I had an incredibly powerful connection to animals. I was always fascinated by the idea of people becoming animals... as the years have gone by, the feelings have gotten stronger. I'm 19 now and I feel 100% like I am a stoat, which is a kind of weasel...

    I Am An Animal

    Humans are really animals, they just never consider themselves such. Why? Because they think they're better than that. Better than the natural world. It's disgusting, if anything, humans are far, far worse. They're not animals to me, because they're absolute scum. They're a...

    I Feel More Animal Than Human

    I feel like an animal. I feel like I should have fangs and often imagine myself with them. I feel like I should tear things apart with my teeth. I often chew on things I shouldn't out of habit, even without feeling animal. I feel like I don't connect with humans but connect more...

    Wild Filly, Just Broken

    I am like a wild filly. I will let myself be caught, but only after running so long I can't run anymore. And when I'm caught, I will only settle down when I trust my master, myself, and my surroundings. If it doesn't make sense and I'm confused, I panic. I kick and buck. Those...

    I Am A Wolf

    My human parents didn't really want me around, so ever since I was 3, I spent all my days outside with our dogs. I called them "my dog parents" and they taught me how to behave. Being homeschooled, gave me all the more opportunity to spend all my extra time with my pack. Now, I...
