Here , In WCA , we are werecats , real werecats , by which I suppose you speak of are ''Movie Werecats'' these movies about shifters are completely false , There is no Physical shifting , Its impossible ( As much as it is disappointing) , What I mean to say is , Most people your going to meet here , are therians , People who fell like other than human , otherkin , now therians are people who feel a spiritual connection to an animal , therians are people (well I am) who feel like I have a feline self besides human , I have dreams of my feline self , I have m-shifts , and phantom shifts . (Id suggest reading a bit about theriantrope to understand more) .
And mostly what happens to moi is that often , always , In a meditation ''course'' I tend to project myself in astral traveling , as a feline , Its how I feel , Its my souls ''shape'' if you will .
Now lets not mistake Furies , For therians , Furies AREN'T therians .
Furies (By what I know) are well , people who enjoy making costumes of an animal , they like , and dress up in those suits , there are furry conventions , and everything .
But there can be , Therians who are also Furies (I am a little bit of a furry myself , I made myself , a cougar tail , as costume ... But never wear it ...) . And I'm sure there are therian Furies on this forum as well .
Now you must be thinking '' whats with all this therian stuff, what does that have to do with being a werecat '' . Well , Real werecats are therians , that well , there ''animal'' type is of a feline .
Like what you call werewolves , are often therian wolves , But , You cant trust all of what you see on the web , when you here someone say '' I shape-shifted once and attacked my friend '' ... Yeah well , for that ; DIAGNOSIS : Role play , and ''Twilight FAN '' .
There is no Physical shifting ... ( I'm sorry for your friend , And anyone else by the fact that whats to be a physical shifter ... Including myself ) .
But there are other type of shifting :
Mental shift : The person experience a state of mind , as a shift , that makes them feel like the animal , ex : I get some mental shifts when I go outside at night , I get the urge to stalk something , like a feline (sounds strange ... doesn't it ) .
Phantom shift : the person Feel's limbs that the animal would have , ex : a tail , cat ears ...
(I think there could be other ''types '' of shifts , I just named what I knew and read abit more about )
And an other thing ... You might come to think '' Alright then , If real werecats are like therians and otherkin I'll just be otherkin '' ...
Sorry But you CANNOT just decide to be an otherkin , Often as a child , the person will imagine itself as its ''inner form'' , and well one of my ex : as a child , I acted like a cat , I growled at my friends , tackled them , purred ... But don't mistake this eider , A child may simply act like this thanks to imagination , and aren't even otherkin ...

This thread, however, I am going to allow to stay, because it is in itself a very valid question. How does one become a werecat? The answer is simple -- one is born a werecat. We are not bitten, or changed from a curse or virus or any other outside force. It is something that all of us agree we have been since birth.
