Catgender is a xenogender in which someone feels an extremely strong connection to cats or other felines, either strongly identifying with them or simply wanting to incorporate them into their gender to better understand their identity. It was made with neurodivergent people in mind, specifically autistic individuals, as well as people who may experience delusions relating to being a cat or other feline, or people who experience species regression. However, anyone may identify as catgender.[1]

One who identifies as catgender may refer to themself as a "catboy," "catgirl," "nyan-binary," or simply catgender or another combination, depending on their gender identity.

There are multiple subtypes of catgender. This includes...

  • Species/Felinegender: when one connects to a specific species of cat. (example: tigergender.)
  • Meowgender: when one connects with older/full grown cats.
  • Mewgender: when one connects with younger cats (kittens.)
  • Kitten/kittygender: when one is catgender and species regresses and/or age regresses.
