Neko Fukuta is trying to enroll into a good high school, and finds Morimori Academy her last resort. She manages to get in after begging, and discovers that the academy is actually a school for animals that can shape-shift into humans, and has to pretend that she can change into a cat. The series follows Neko's adventures and experiences at the mysterious and prosperous Morimori Academy.


Neko Fukuta
The series' protagonist. She has short, light brown hair and is depicted as cheerful and friendly to others, but is bad at her studies. She managed to get into Moritaka academy by begging to be let in and answering three odd questions: Can you keep cool if you know the truth? Can you get along with others? Can you conceal that you are a human? She met and befriended Miiko prior to enrolling when she was on a train. Neko is the one of two only humans at the academy, and keeps her true identity hidden by pretending to be a cat (her name literally means "cat" in Japanese). In last volume, she relizes that she loves Sasuke
Miiko Suzuhara
The first person Neko befriended from Morimori academy. Miiko has wavy blue hair done up in two high ponytails, and is described by Neko to have eyes the color of a beautiful ocean. Miiko is rather quiet and unsocialable, but is quite friendly towards her friends. She is actually a cat and dislikes others who are not her kind, often slapping them or yelling at them when they come too close to her. She is good friends with Neko, whom she affectionately nicknames "Fune" (the "fu" from "Fukuta" and "ne" from Neko), and often becomes jealous when Neko becomes friends with others. She is able to tell which animals people are by smell, and loves Neko's scent, whom she considers comforting.The reason for her to comes to Morimori school is to be a human who can live with and say "I like you" to her beloved one-Teruo.
Kotaro Araki
Kotaro is one of Neko's classmates. He is a fox, and has spiky blonde hair in his human form. He is a bit of a troublemaker and has taken a liking in Miiko ever since she slapped the teacher when he pushed Kotaro into her desk. His affections are in vain, as Miiko often hits, slaps and frequently runs away from him, and dislikes him also because of his foxy smell.
Yuuichi Takuma
Yuuichi's a fox, but he mistook himself as a human . He is a short-haired redhead, is friendly and kind, does better in his studies than Neko, and says he is a lover of cats. He is good friends with Kotaro and becomes good friends with Neko soon after they meet. Neko's friendship with him causes some jealousy with Miiko at first, who seems to dislike Yuuichi as well. Yuuichi also says he likes memorizing maps and locations.
Umeka Kamaba
Very shy, polite, and meek, Umeka is the quietest of the class and has black hair worn in an unusual style: short at the front side parts, fringe tied back in a flower clip, which she cannot transform into her human form without, and the rest left long and tied in two low ponytails. It is revealed in chapter 6 that she has a sister. She is a little flustered when around new people or people of the opposite gender, and is often too shy to ask people for help. Neko affectionately calls her "Ume-chan". She is a raccoon dog in her animal form.
Sasuke Sagami
Sasuke is quiet, rather aloof and expressionless, but has a caring side for others, such as finding Umeka's flower clip for her, but got Kotaro to give it to her, and tried to steal cold medicine for Neko when she got sick. Sasuke has an older brother called Yuusuke, who both look extremely alike. Sasuke's a human and he's pretending to be a black cat.
Yuusuke Sagami
Yuusuke is Sasuke's older brother, but despite looking extremely alike, are quite different. Yuusuke is a lot more outgoing and friendly. He is rather touchy-feely, doing things such as hugging Neko and Miiko unexpectedly. He is the only character so far that can hug Miiko, who dislikes him a lot, and emerge unscathed. a human. Yuusuke's a human too. He's actually a ninja who surveys the school to bring the informations for the human side. To keeps his true identity hidden, he's pretending to be a black cat
Watanuki is the homeroom teacher of the white class, and is one of the few people who know that Neko and Yuuichi are humans. Watanuki also doesn't hesitate to gently hit children on the head as punishment when they misbehave.
Reira Eisenji
Reira is a raccoon in her animal form, and a somewhat bossy girl, who is in the same class as Neko. She and two other friends entered Neko and Miiko's room, when they discovered that it was open, to ask how to open doors. When first meeting Miiko, she was slapped across the face by her, who said that she stunk like a raccoon.
Wakaba Usuu
One of Reira's friends. She has long, straight, black hair and is presumably a raccoon.
