My brother's always been a furry hater(makes life difficult with hiding it and all that) and U once found the term furry and asked my brother about what it meant, he replied with "keep away from that stuff they're disgusting, creeps and it's inappropriate. So me being curious I googled it and my brother found me googling what furry meant and he explained all his reasonings for hating furries and because of this(please don't hate me this was ages ago now) I grew up as a furry hater and constantly comment on furry stuff with negative comments. I then found a video by I hate everything called "I hate furries" and in this video he explained that he can't hate furries because there's nothing wrong with being a furry, this then led on to me taking a look around furry communities with a new mindset and eventually I became a furry. :D

When I was little, I lived at my grandparents with my mom, and sister. My grandparents were constantly going to the hospital or other places. So, they needed a place where someone could watch me and my sister. My grandparents knew another lady on our street. We called her Grandma Marcy. So, ever so often I'd go there to help her, and be watched. When I had nothing to do, I'd ask if it be okay to play the SEGA. My favorite game I found was a Sonic the Hedgehog 2 video game. This later lead on to me drawing cream the rabbit and loving the ships. Then it got to me making a fan character (Today I despise the sonic fanbase). I scraped it of course. Then it went on to me making Kya. A blue cat. She didn't really have the 'best' design. I made a story of her. Which was about 50+ pages. I decided to abandon it. Then in the 8th grade, around May of 2013 did I make my early design of Lona. I had a bit of time roughly getting to one place than the other. I made her have a brown pelt and dark brown hair. I decided she'd be a wolf. After, a long time of redesigning her I got the colors right finally. Today, I'm happy I have Lona. I didn't maker her my official sona till January of last year (Ya so 1 year now  :lol-fox:) . Lona, is apart of me too. Thats why I don't want to leave uwu . I also was influenced by my real life friend whom was a furry too. Thats when he told me what a anthro is.

I read Redwall in 5th grade and I got hooked on the series. Some guy caught me writing fanfiction about a year ago and asked if I was a furry. Had no idea what it meant, so I used bing (I'm a rebel, I know), and here I am now.

I think my sister told me about it but I'm not sure. But if she was the one that told me them I'm glad she did.  :lol-fox: :lol-fox:

I was watching The Fox and the Hound on TV with my dad and sister when I was 15. I had seen the movie multiple times before, but for some reason this time I thought "man it would be awesome to be Tod!" Later I wondered if someone else had had the same thought, and after a bunch of Googling found the furry fandom. If I recall correctly, Furry Teens was the first furry site I registered an account on. My first fursona was some sort of Sonic-like abomination, but after a while I settled on a Eurasian Lynx, which has felt right ever since.

Both my dad and sister really liked wolves, and were actually admins of a rather large wolf related discussion forum at the time, so the concepts of "being wolfish" and "doing wolfish things" weren't that foreign to me. They just didn't take it to a level that could be considered "being a furry", instead treating it more as just a source of puns and other jokes. They also didn't get the whole "anthropomorphic" thing.

i found it kinda oddly - i liked the original dragonball a LOT when i was 8 - and i wanted a tail SO BADLY.  so i ended up searching tons of art for that and that kinda started it. i hit puberty when i was 11 and started looking up the porn of the internet, and i thought "hey someone probobly drew pokemon porn" and i searched it up and found e621 - that kinda started it, then i quit for a while and found the fandom over deviantart and furaffinity - but the porn aspect of the community is very wierd, so i tend to stay away from that - i sense then became a normal furry and still cant draw worth a crap

Though I partook in several activities common to furries I didn't truly discover the fandom until one dull summer day when I was browsing the Minecraft Forums under various keywords of interest such as "fox" which resulted in my stumbling upon the Furry Thread which had a very helpful documentary in the OP that introduced me to the fandom :fox-:):

I was subscribed to Foxalbiazul on YouTube for ages because of his videos of his fox. I eventually found his con videos and then looked at more furry stuff. It just went from there.

I was on YouTube late one night because I could fall asleep, I was watching a bunch of random stuff and a furry video showed up so I watched it and thought the fandom looked interesting. I looked up the fandom on Google and read some stuff about it, liked it so created a fursona and here I am
