The art. I have never seen better art in my whole life(Although I never see other art XD). I mean, everything from the artwork to the fursuits is just amazing! I love the community, too! It is huge! Everyone is accepting of each other, and helps each other a lot! I also have found a few friends IRL who are also in the Furry Fandom, and they are really great friends! So, yeah! The beautiful artwork and the community!

ive spent a fortune on art and a fursuit

I love the creativity that lots of people in the furry fandom have. Everyone is supportive and kind. Granted, I'm referring to this site only. I don't do much outside of here.

The room to character build, and the people. I really enjoy making/seeing just cool anthro characters, and the furry fandom is the only place you won't get judged for it. There's a ton of support on this site too, this particular community is really fun to be a part of.

There are times where I think of quitting, but then I see some really cute sonas or my friends talk to me and I stay. //shrugs

Mainly how fast you can make friends, and how nice people are. The fandom is also great for roleplaying in, and most people are playful.

This forum, the friends I've made in the fandom, and the art and fursuits. There are soooo many things I dislike about this fandom but it's kinda hard to drop it when I still want to make a fursuit lol
Also my OCs, who are mainly animals. Where else can I share them besides with people in the furry fandom?

The fursuits, art, and the people. I dislike the drama that goes on, but for the most part I've met some incredible and accepting people. I have a very hard time socializing and the fandom is very helpful in helping me break free of that. Whenever I meet someone who is a furry, I'm not afraid to talk to them like I would be normally.

The fursuits are what attracted me initially, and they are still a big part of why I stick around. I have gotten into fursuit crafting and even commissioned one; costuming is a recently rediscovered passion of mine. I loved "dressing up" as a kid. It also led me to another hobby which is cosplay.

And of course, the art. I have been drawing anthros my entire life and it was nice to find others with a similiar interest.

My friends and the sense of connection mostly. Some of the art is good too although I like to look beyond just the furry fandom for that kinda thing as it can get a little repetitive depending on which area of the fandom you are in.
