Doctors Herding Cats: The Misadventures of Modern Medicine and Psychology with NonHuman Identities is a paper about otherkin and therians written by researcher Pedro Feijó and published by the University of Cambridge. In it, Feijó traces a history of the interaction between medicine, psychology, and "nonhuman identities" dating back to latter half of the 19th century and accounts of lycanthropy. It goes on to discuss "species dysphoria" as coined by researchers studying cases of preferential bestiality. Finally it touches on the history of the otherkin, therian, and even fictionkin communities.
