"Capgras syndrome is a strange disorder in which the sufferer becomes convinced that someone close to them has been replaced by an impostor. Yet now, a new and even stranger variant of the syndrome has been reported – “Cat-gras”. This is the name coined by Harvard neurologists R. Ryan Darby and David Caplan in a new paper in the journal Neurocase. The authors describe the case of a man who believed that his cat was in fact a different cat."
I just pretend you're a cat.
That's right. :)
So opposite to dreams, when someone you know looks completely different from real life and yet you know it is (s)he.
Better to know you're with the right person than to "know" your cat works for the Stasi, though :)
believed that his cat was in fact a different cat! I expected him to believe his cat was an alien spy or posessed by some mistycal creature, or at least by some dead person's conscience, but to be a different cat!
fleet in being
The imposter cat was thought to be a spy, though, or at least part of a conspiracy against him :)
