A Catkid in relation to swankid, doekid & bunnykid, an alter role relating to syskids/young alters who hold/carry trauma specifically related to medical and health. This can be from any kind of trauma.
Coined in part to help describe why a catkid may struggle to or front more often during medical related instances, and the complex relationship with personal health that come from having this experience. The cat is meant to offer a pleasant imagery in contrast to what the child holds, as well as a vague reference to the experience of taking a pet to the vet, and to make the experience of holding this trauma less intimidating.
