Nano is twenty years old, and truly believes she is meant to be a cat.
‘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,’ she said.
‘Suitcases rolling on the ground,’ she says, ‘Keys clinking in pockets. People with ice crampons under their shoes.’ She can hear it all. ‘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.’
‘Suddenly I start meowing or she does,’ he says. ‘And then we answer each other and communicate by cat language.’ She explains about her best friend Svien.
