Cat Lyons, 31, from Colorado, has been playing role-playing games for cats all her adult life and said she first realized she was a cat & # 39; in high school.

The model, who works at Cat Girl Manor – a Colorado Springs residence where animal roles are played at BDSM events, met her partner Robrecht Berg, 52, an aerospace engineer, at a local Comic Con eight months ago.

Both say they have a loving relationship, despite the constant judgment they have about an age-dependent, role-playing relationship.

Kat said: & # 39; I've always been different. I was always fascinated by cats and I felt myself, I am a cat. I go through life like a cat – it's just who I am. & # 39;

She added: & # 39; I have always worn cat ears. & # 39; It started when I was in high school, I don't know exactly how old I was anymore, but it (came from) an anime.

& # 39; I was like: "Oh, that's cool. I want to be that in real life." So I only started applying that to my real life. I don't think I've started on the ears, the tail, the collar and all that stuff until later.

& # 39; I was bullied a lot because I wore ears and was just a nerd. So I kept it a bit hidden. & # 39;

Kat decided to publicly embrace her kitten identity when she encountered the Cat Girl Manor and eventually discovered others who saw themselves as feline.

She remembered: & # 39; I just saw other girls doing it, so I felt more comfortable doing it myself. & # 39;

Speaking about the first time he met Kat, Rob said: & She might have wore ears then, but I didn't notice that.

But she admitted that not everyone has supported her kitty game and added: & # 39; My family and certain people do not accept this and do not want to know anything about it.

& # 39; It's hard, but I become who I am, regardless of whether people accept this lifestyle or not. I'm just going to be who I am. & # 39;

She added: & # 39; I always felt that I was a cat. When I'm in my kitten mode, I'm happy. It is my space.

& # 39; When I was growing up, I had to pretend I was normal and not the cat, but now I have to be myself, I have to express myself, I can climb, if I want to climb, I can if I want to drink from a bowl I can do it if I want to wear a collar, if I want to wear my ears, I can do it.

& # 39; I don't have anyone stopping me and saying, "Okay, you have to be normal." Now I can just be myself. & # 39;
