Hi! I am not familiar with the otherkin community and I came to find an answer to a question i'm having trouble getting an answer for. Is someone who feels a connection to another species and relates a lot, though does not believe they actually are that species in any way considered otherkin? If not, is there something this would be classified as? I find comfort in acting more like a dog and I have for almost my whole life, though i don't believe that i am a dog. And I am not talking about a kink or fetish, just more of a way to escape these days, and as a kid it was just pretend for fun.
