Most of my friends say I am, but I simply read the body language of cats (or dogs and horses!) and translate from that what they are thinking/doing. I can usually befriend a cat in minutes, even friends' nervous cats as there are postures that you can mimick to get them to come over etc but I don't whisper in their ears and perform miracles!
Growing up I was an only child and spent A LOT of time with my cats studying them! I have always been interested in how animals communicate and often it is not dissimilar to how us humans unconsciously 'speak' with our eyes and postures. It is in my nature to analyse everything and ask why something does what it does.
I was thinking about doing a hub on cat language and behaviour so will post shortly if you want to learn!
