What is a Neko Person?

The term "Neko person" is often used to describe people who identify as both male and Neko. Often, a Neko person will identify with many different types of animals or animal-related things such as anime characters, cartoons, furry art/culture, etc.

It is not uncommon for some individuals to feel like they are going through changes in their gender identity throughout life. It does change over time depending on how comfortable you are expressing your true self. However, a Neko boy is not a gender identity but rather an individual who can be feminine, masculine, or both.


Origin and History of Neko boy 

The first Neko boy was created way back in the year 1606, during the Edo period. It is believed that this statue was used as a ritual to pray for happiness and good luck. During those times, people from Japan would believe that cats possessed certain supernatural powers, and if you were able to use these powers, you could bring yourself good luck.


An example of this superstition was that cats could help you win elections or that they were capable of giving people the ability to perform "magic" spells. This belief became even more popular when cat-related items began being introduced within religious rituals and ceremonies.

The most important thing to be considered during those times was whether a woman was expecting a boy or a girl. At the time, having a daughter was believed to be difficult since they would turn into cats and have supernatural powers. This is why it became very common for people to pray for them while still within their mother's womb so that she would give birth to a son instead of a daughter. They believed that if this child were born, they would continue to keep their cats and further pray for more good luck and fortune.


The legend behind the origin of Neko boy has been passed down through the years by word of mouth. It is believed that because it was fascinating enough for people to hear, it quickly spread and became widely popular. Many cats are seen as holy animals in Japan, even to this day, especially since their religion believes that they can bring them good luck.
