    Catgender is a xenogender in which one 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 individuals in mind, specifically autistic individuals, as well as individuals who may experience delusions relating to being a cat or other feline, or individuals 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. The term is related to, but not to be confused with, Purrgender.

    There are multiple subtypes of catgender. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

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