In kitten-play the person assumes the less serious role of a pet that keeps some independence and - as part of the fantasy. Kitten-play is less well known than pony or pup-play, although in recent years has been growing in popularity. Kitten play is similar to PonyPlay or PuppyPlay, it's a sub strand of the BDSM community in which the participents enjoy dressing as an animal and being treated as such in various humiliating activites which can include:
1) Drinking and eating from an animal bowl
2) Crawling on all fours
3) Wearing a collar
4) Taking commands from your Master/Owner/Trainer
5) Sleeping in an animal bed or on the floor
6) Going for walks on leash
7) Being punished for not following commands
8) Can be taken to other animal play events and participate for prizes
9) Dressing as the animal in ears and tail, often a buttplug is used for the tail
Some consider costume play, or cosplay, anime catgirls to be a form or look of pet play as well, because these are generally young female characters that have the combined aspects of females and cats (generally a human girl with cat ears, a tail, fangs and a propensity for catlike affection or curiosity). Some superheroes, heroines and villains could also be classified as related to pet play, such as DC Comics's Wildcat, Catwoman and Vixen, Marvel's Tigra, Man-Wolf and Black Cat, or even Nastassja Kinski's Irena Gallier in the 1982 film Cat People, and Miss Kitty from the Brendan Frasermovie Monkeybone. All involve animal qualities taken on by a human. Some would even count the enactment or spiritual belief in therianthropy (werewolves, werecats, etc) as falling under human animal roleplay or transformation play as well.
