(rare) A mental condition of thinking that one has become a cat, usually manifest in the adoption of feline mannerisms and habits.
(Origin) From Ancient Greek γαλῆ (galē), contracted form of γαλέη (galeē, “a name given to various animals of the weasel
kind”), + -anthropy.
I might be alone in this, (I hope I’m not alone in this!…I’m not alone in this, am I?!) but there are times when I think…
I might be cat!
I always find the warm spot and sit there
I sometimes purr when contented
I often bring gifts with a gleeful face
I stare into space
I can be selectively deaf
My kneading skills are great (making bread though)
If provoked, I can hiss
I can often chatter (but not at birds through the window)
I sometimes make little ‘Brrr’ or chirrup noises to myself
If I really like you, I’ll rub my cheek on you
I might pat your face to attract your attention
I’m very curious
I sometimes have a mad half hour
Although, I don’t roll in the street, I don’t show my tummy for a rub, I don’t scratch the furniture and I don’t need to bury my…you know what!!!
But I don’t think I’m quite as annoying as this…
