I personally imagine every character in rp as a human. I can't help it, and I write as if they are. Its not that I dislike the lackadaisy theme, far from it, but the story and emotions are just easier to picture for me. I was wondering if I am the only one who's brain doesn't have enough imagination to picture cats unless it is drawn in front of them. (aka, the comic)

Eh, I bounce between them, but mostly I imagine more human traits. Especially recently.

Always human, I can't imagine them as anything else.

I don't RP much (okay, I don't RP at all), but I have a pretty wild imagination. I can image a cat in my head if someone says that someone that sounds exactly like a human being is actually a cat.

I do this as well. It depends on the both the character and who I'm RPing with. I mean, some people only see them as human and I have no problem with that. But some see them as feline and I also have no problem with that. I have some characters that are so completely feline in my head though I have a hard time seeing them as humans, and the same is true for the other way as well. I'd probably say that far more often than not I think of them as something in between the two. Like a neko. Human for the most part with few cat fetures. *shrugs*

That. Exactly that.

Between the two of us, we'll get a good explanation. XD

I once bounced between mentioning someone had a tail and then describing their very human face. But then again I'm a terrible man and should be beaten with a sense stick. Take some leave some.

In my head, despite descriptions in profiles, I imagine them as human. Though every now and then I recall they are cats and utilize inhuman features. Normally the ears, they are probably the one thing I remember to mention.

Come to think of it, I always imagine them having tails, though the rest of their appearance is strictly human.

They're always human. It's very rare that I play a cat or any kind of animal...I mean, once I did play some bird humanoid princess. It was pretty nifty but the RP died, =<

I think I'm just conditioned from previous RP forums to imagine them however the person described them in their character info. I do sometimes imagine facial expressions as human and then try to translate that into the feline features.

That's a good thing to do lol I try and do that too.

And I like the muzzles and ears and tails and stuff. The expressiveness of it. The purring, too.

I also had anthro imaginary friends when I was little and LOVED the show Road Rovers, so...it's pretty easy for me lol
