Thanks for letting me join.

Okay. I'm kinda of bad at introductions. I'm Shade. My phenotype is black leopard. I've been a shifter as long as I can remember, though it took me 20+ years to understand it. My animal side has always been very close to the surface and it used to give me alot of social problems as a kid. I couldn't understand why I was so odd to the other kids. I had few friends and was rather antisocial, prefering to be left alone so I could, draw (animals), read (about animals) ect in peace. Fitting in was impossible. Even when I tried I didn't act like them and never responded quite right. I was also never a talker. Later all these traits would get me bullied, get me into fights, and generally cause me hell. (I left middle school with the nickname Cat Woman)

In high school I finally began to get a grip on what was going on after several strong mental shifts which were almost frightening. I began reading up on therianthropy and animal totemism. It was a big help. Now, those years behind me, I finally can understand and appreciate the animal side that caused me so much trouble. Leopard is still very active and close to the surface, the difference is I understand and can deal with it. I'm still kind of antisocial and it can be frustrating to friends who want me out and about when I don't feel like it. But that's okay. If I could explain it to them I would.

So, hello there. I'm here. I hope to learn more about other feline shifters during my stay. :)
