I always liked cartoon animals when I was younger and I've always been an animal lover so perhaps that's why. I then got into the art like most people do cos I think I wanted to try and draw some cartoon stuff so I looked at some that other people had done online then I think one must have been linked to either DA/FA or Wikifur cos after that I learned about the fandom. I never really considered myself a furry until more recently when I found out that someone I knew was one as he saw my (attempts at) drawings and asked if I heard about furries so I suppose he possibly got me into it. As for my fursona well, not that original really but I've always found I had a connection with canine animals after having dogs as pets so I would be either a dog/fox or folf if I wasn't a wolf but I like wolves I don't know why I just like how they are free and sort of majestic. Wolves are often very misunderstood (think of folklore ie. 3 little pigs/goldilocks) which I suppose is like me sometimes.  :lol-fox:

I've always been into anthropomorphic and feral animals, but when I started wanting a fursuit and going on sites like these, I knew it was official. owo

I had just gone to Salt Lake Comic Con for the first time and I was looking for my cosplay for the next year. I wanted to build an Arcanine quadsuit, because I loved pokemon so much. While researching quadsuits, I came across fursuits. I looked into them and thought they were really cool, and that I wanted one. I researched more about the furry fandom and I decided I thought it was cool. The pros outweighed the cons and I decided I was a furry. I feel like I've been a furry for a long time though. I was obsessed with animals as a child, pretending to be a dog around the house and playing cat games with my friends at school. I really loved Lion King and things like that. I didn't discover the fandom until recently though. I'm so glad I did!

I really became one when my friends were talking about how furries are disguisting and that the world is so jacked up because of them. I researched furries, and i just saw lots of aspects of it that related to me and had a great interest in. Another reason is probably because i am a HUGE Disney fanatic. Love the Disney movies and most of them are really anthro based. So yeah xD

I wonder what your friends think of you now...

Anyways I was a furry before I even knew it. I loved anthropomorphic animals, I just didn't know the name of the fandom.

For as long as I can remember, I've liked animals with human qualities. I'm guessing this comes from a childhood filled with Disney movies and a ceaseless adoration of the neighborhood pets. I don't know how I discovered furries, but I spent a good several years on the internet knowing about their existence. Then one day I got bored and just searched the "furries" tag on some social media application and I thought it was sort of interesting. The short-lived phase ran its course, but when Caravan Palace released their Lone Digger music video I dived head first back into the fandom.

I consider my self more of an anthropomorphic enthusiast than a furry. however I love anthropomorphic animals and though I haven't joined the fandom I joined this site to meet more people with this interest.

UPDATE: Yeah I'm definitely a furry... probably been about 4-5 years since I accidentally came across yiff, after that I started getting attracted to anthros and then that grew into a much stronger attachment/attraction to anthros in general.

After discovering the fandom, I've been drawing furries for... 2 or 3 years now (I'm trying to improve). Also because I listen to LAPFOX and stuff. I searched up stuff on furries alot, and by then I'd consider myself a "furry", but I'll never call myself one. I'm just a part of the fandom, I guess.

When I was younger, around five, I started to use the interwebs for music and stumbled across VULPvibe (now known as LAPFOX TRAX) and was über addicted to emoticon (now known as FIAB/Emoticon? Get your stuff together Dave) and Renard. It took me threeish years to find this fandom when I was super depressed and lonely because I had a school of catholics on me about every mistake I made (story for another day) so I kind of fell into binging my days online and doing tons of gaming. Obviously my prolonged internet exposure introduced me to multitudes of things and from 08-16 and going I am a furry, the end.

I always been obsessed with animals  when I was younger, so it was only a matter of time that I found this fandom. I first heard about from this girl at school but she talked about the naughty part of the fandom. Rather than being disgusted, I actually curious (mostly because I didn't believe) so I looked it after school and fell in love about the idea of a fursona and fursuit. And so I am there now :lol-fox:

I saw videos on youtube of people dancing at conventions, got interested in the fandom and decided to get into it.

I was introduced to it by someone on Skype when I was going through a very stressful time concerning my gender identity (I'm a trans girl).
I guess what really dragged me into the fandom was the art. There's so many talented people here .w.
I've only really been a furry for a month, so... yeah.

 I've found anthropomorphic animals interesting ever since I was a little kid. Wasn't until I heard about the gas attack at Furfest in 2014 that I found out there was entire fandom that revolves around the anthropomorphic animals.
