That's cool! it seems you are as well one to enjoy the tactile (through touch) expressions of your therian side.

 

Maybe the first serious thing I did, is purchase some quality red meat and eat it nice and rare. Mmn.

(on that note, dog treats are rarely food grade, so take care of yourself!)

 

Who hasn't gone on all fours and tried to run in the grass? There are videos of others who have become very skilled at such!

 

Have you ever let off a wicked howl somewhere where no one will ever know who it was? Twice some kids responded with their own!

 

I usually growl under my breath at people I don't like, tilt my head at curious things and on the occasion to clean food off my hands the animal way.

I myself tend to chew and scratch at things, especially when I'm shifted, and while I don't do it as often as when I was younger, I still snarl, growl, and crouch/scurry everywhere on all fours like a small creature. In public I get away with head tilting and making small noises without gaining too much judgement, so those are common tics of mine. I enjoy howling as well, but more so as a verbal stim rather than an animalistic urge. I think this is all tied in with being therian, even if I don't know what animal I am yet; maybe it has something to do with being an imp.

The only urge I have for my deity self is quite a lot of sleeping and daydreaming.

Host: I have gotten the urge to eat dog treats before, and asked one of my parents here if I could eat them, but they always said no as they were dog treats even though I'm not technically therian I am otherkin. I do walk on all fours, crawl up/down stairs, roll around on a bed/sofa, stretch my shoulder blades individually (as my form in astral has wings), etc.

If I'm out in nature on a bright sunny day, I like to find a tall place to sit and just watch everything. I know that doesn't sound very exciting. The urge to jump into they sky and push at the air until it carries me is one but of course that never works. When out walking, my attention is always drawn to movement and the sound of rustling leaves. I want to see what is making the noise even if I have no chance and no need to catch anything.

 

The deity side is much harder to explain. I want to reach out and become part of my surroundings, feeling the air itself, infusing my energy into the land. I set up a sort of hum that aligns the area, similar to how a magnetic field aligns iron filings. Sometimes I combine my energy with other beings who are compatible with me. I say things like "Be strong, be well." I don't have much concept of personal space in this mode. If I say "Mine" it means "I love you and I protect you." Naturally, if I behaved that way as a human everyone would think I was being grabby and rude.

I get urges to interact with other canines and sometimes like to play chase and wrestle with friendly dogs. Exploring in the woods and snow, and taking walks and night are things I like to do when I get restless. If I see a tunnel or something similar, I'm drawn to explore it. I also tend to chew on things without noticing it. :grntg:

Walking in forests is really calming and I often feel the urge to want to roll around on ground or dive into snow (which I must resist because I know my body cannot handle that). Then there's the compulsion to be sneaky, to swipe things and then hide them away for later. (I have to really really be cautious to not act on this because I want to be a good fox and not steal from people. So I limit swiping to stuff that's been thrown away/abandoned, and hiding things to stuff I own) I also have been at many times been very tempted to swipe some of my roommate's dog's food, especially during the period her kibble was shrimp-flavored. I tend to gravitate towards meat, rice, and tofu in food preference (rice & tofu craving is a trait of kitsune possession). There was also going up and down stairs on all fours, back when I lived in places with stairs. I also make animalistic noises at times.

 

My apologies for the organization of this post being weird, I hope it is still okay.

When I run in the mornings, I pant with mouth open and letting out little snarls. I love to howl but I have a feeling that considering how quiet the neighborhood is my doing so would not be taken well, and honestly I don't like howling alone. So I wait until I'm with my best friend. Rare meat is amazing for both my kintypes, and I like to get up with the sun so I have some alone time in the dark

Yes, I always seek social attention as is normal for a monkey. I also, unproudly, feel aggression that I have to push away when I feel that my role in any type of group is threatened. Whenever I am in a tree or any other high area I feel the need to call out loudly to others(monkey noises).

Being in any flat, open place drives me to start running (which is unfortunate due to my body's breathing problems I can't run nearly as far as I'd like). On the rare occasion I'm with a friend my I have a tendency to become aggressively playful, feeling the need to demand playfights or races or play tag.

I also feel urges to eat certain plants that stand out as "appealing" to this inner sense. I usually obey rational thought with that one, I've witnessed first hand what happens when someone eats the wrong plants. But I occasionally let myself browse on plants I'm confident I can identify as safe.

Whenever I go hiking or walking along the beach I sometimes get the urge to run, and I always take off my shoes as well because walking in the dirt in bare feet feels so nice. I'm seeing some other people talking about wanting to eat dog treats and although I haven't done that, I once used some dog shampoo on myself in the shower because I had just run out of normal shampoo haha

There are luckily alot of human-safe dog treats. Some even taste pretty good! Generally "cookie" or "cracker" ones are the best, and alot of meaty treats are... certainly not what most people expect "food" to taste like to say the least.

Because some of you mentioned it: Since I was a child I often want to run in open space. Often I do, and I don't run like a normal human would. I use one leg to push my body forward, and the other leg to maintain balance or something like that. My sister said I was "jumping while running". I don't even try to jump most of the time.

Meanwhile I don't use my arms, they just hang around. My dad once asked me why I don't use my arms while running, because normal people do so. I told him that:

  1. Unlike normal people, I have no instinct or reflex to use my arms while running.
  2. I am already using my legs, and if I would consciously use my arms as well, this would be uncomfortable and, if I do so for long, overwhelming.

He was accepting, but didn't understand of course.

 

Since I was 11 years old I have fantasies of hunting humans while running. These are caused mostly by anger. Back then I was bullied, and I wanted to vanquish the bullies, but could do so only in my mind. The hunting fantasies are less common now.

 

I thought the running urge is an Asperger's thing, since that's what other people think of it, if they know about my Autism.

Mine isn't very animalistic at all, but it is otherkin.

 

I used to (and sometimes still do) get urges to do things like being up as high as I can, or things that are like flying. I tried to jump as high as I could on the trampoline, or swing as high as I could to feel like I'm flying. This has gone on for years. I love those rides that go up high, especially the swings and some roller coasters. Unfortunately I had a scary experience on one ride, and now I'm less enthusiastic about them. The thing that held me in my seat wasn't completely secure, and the ride went upside down multiple times.

 

Another thing, I would look at the sky and I would want to be up there. It was like I should be up there. I've had a lot of flying dreams, and daydreams as well.

One time I was walking downtown and saw the fresh, newly sprouted spring grass. I was delighted by its green-ness because green things don't last long here. I wanted to flop down and roll around on it, but it would scare the humans to see a woman rolling on the lawn of a court house.

Yep! Can't tell you the number of times I've been possum-noshing some food, totally lost in it, and look over to see my husband laughing at me! I absolutely love mental shifts for my two theriotypes and revel in them.

I've had possum shifts longer than owl shifts, so i am currently enjoying the discovery process as far as owl shifts go. Kinda like Shezep mentioned from the perspective of a hawk, I just want to sit up somewhere high and dark where I can see you but you can't see me, lol. I find sometimes the threat-responses owls tend to do arises in me when I myself feel threatened--big big wings, clacking beak, hissing, really weird disorienting movements... :P

It's been a long while, but sometimes I still get the whispers of old wolf-shifts, and wonder if that is starting to return, too. Running, rolling, scrambling, playing!

yeah! as much as my therian form is usually quite laid-back, I still absolutely get urges to do things like eat raw meat and knock things to the ground. I utilize quadrobics as much as I can and can only really sleep in enclosed spaces (cabinets, closets, etc. I have adapted to this by surrounding my bed in black-out curtains. it’s not the best, but it works!). I also mimic animalistic vocalizations incredibly often, especially when communicating with my cat friends! :] these are a few of the most prominent urges with my kintype, or at least the ones I remember lol

This is a fun thread!

 

For me, I sometimes get the urge to graze on grass, berries, etc. I will be naturally drawn to plants that look appetizing to me. XD I don't actually eat them, but I do end up harvesting them for witchcraft purposes. As a horse/unicorn, I totally would've snacked on aaallll kinds of flowers though.

 

I also have the urge to run- not out of fright, but just the drive to move and explore. My body is very kinetic, it wants to be moving constantly. I feel like that is a very equine trait. We don't sit still: we have watchful eyes, listening ears, twitching tails, muscles ready to go at any moment. We like to play and run and dance.

 

My other alter, Hyakkimaru, is a hare/fox kitsune demon entity that has both prey and predator instincts. He has urges to dig, he follows scents (he sniffs things a lot), he watches birds and other animals. Humans almost don't parse to him, unless they're dangerous. He has his eyes and ears on other animals instead. He also has the uncontrollable urge to eat whole live fish... he settles for sashimi. He misses his natural diet. He does not at all like processed human foods. They don't register as food to his palette. Even cooked rice is pretty alien to his tongue.

 

He also has urges to eat wild plants- specifically clovers, carrots, strawberries, and any earthy herb. He loves to chew on rosemary branches, he uses them to clean his teeth.

Too many for me to list because I kinda just am dog and elf 24/7 and sometimes other things lol. Rou really wants to talk about their urges tho, they're a wolf!

 

Rou: I want to run a lot!! I love running. I get predator instincts too and love meat :eatduck: but we're vegan so obv I can't like actually eat meat lol. but vegan jerky is SO GOOD 10/10 it pretty much tastes like and has the same texture as meat or dog treats. i like rolling in things. we used to roll on our bed after washing the sheets to get our scent back on it. i hate unfamiliar smells and want everything to smell like us. and i wanna howl everytime i hear sirens lol... embarrassing /s
