NOTE: Majority of these definitions are NOT from actual furries, take it from a real one.
Unlike the pictures suggest, a furry is NOT BY ANY MEANS a person who dresses as an animal. Despite the fact that some furries do enjoy that, it is NOT the definition. A person who dresses as an animal, is a gigolo (pronounced ji-gill-oh).
A furry, on the other hand is a person who finds anthropomorphic animals (meaning they walk, talk, think, act, and have personalities like a human) appealing, often but not always sexually.
- not all furries like yiff, and the 2 CANNOT be considered the same, or even similar
- being a furry does NOT mean wanting to have sex with the characters, although some do, it is NOT a requirement
Examples of furry Characters:
-Amy the Squirrel
Non-furry: "Why do you have pictures of Minerva Mink on your PC?"
Furry: "Oh... heheh, I'm kind of what you call a furry..."
Non-furry: "....I don't get it at all but whatever..."
Furyy: "Hey dude, furry pride for the win!"
Furry include basically humanoid-formed creatures with animal faces, fur/scale/feathers/whatever, and often appropriate tails, wings, claws, etc., able to speak, and with a human-like personality, though quite often with "quirks" hinting at the real-life animal upon which the character is based.
There are furries all around from the world, for example: Asia,Europe,USA,Canada people some time meet up at conventions.

Firstly, there are furries and there are Furries. The former term is simply anyone who is fascinated by anthropomorphic animals in media. May watch many Disney movies or read Redwall or similar novel series often. While they are strange, they can usually still function normally in regular life, as it doesn't take more than the role of a hobby or an interest. Then, there are the Furries. There is no way to completely describe them all. However, it is safe to say that they are an extreme version of Furries. Their interest in anthropomorphic animals is an obsession; and, as with any other obsession, hurts their social skills with normal people (who, by the way, they call "mundanes," implying that they are somehow more interesting than a sane person.) They may believe that they are part animal, an animal in a human's body, or were previously an animal (note however, they were always something "cute" or "magestic." They are never voles or rats. This may stem from a negative self image.) They also produce some of the most disturbing pornography on the internet, "furry porn," where the animals "yiff" (euphemism for sex). However, since there is no real-life "yiffing," all of this porn is usually in hentai
format (i.e.-drawn). Many Furries fantasize about anthropomorphic animals from many children's movies. However, they are also extremely vocal about their perversions, which ...
1. having a lot of hair
2. a fandom of people who take an interest in anthropomorphic art or literature of any sort be it poems, stories, animations, or drawings.
Being a Furry ,however, doesn't make you a zoophile and you do not need to have a "Fursona". Each Furry is different just like everyone not in the fandom. Some chose to dress up in costumes representing animals, they are called, "FurSuitors".
People who dress as animals are furries. The Ursa Major is a Furry award.

A furry is someone who is fascinated with animals. Companies like Disney, Dreamworks and Pixar are a big reason why furries exist to begin with as they attach human personalities to their characters, which makes kids feel more emotionally attached to them and often turns them into vegetarians. But becoming a vegetarian is only the first step of the evolution of the furry. The next step is becoming obsessed with Pokemon or My Little Pony. This is where the teen will develop a real addiction and a sense of belonging to a furry community that will undoubtedly influence the teen's behavior, mentality and taste. Eventually, the furry will become obsessed with a specific animal type (often a cat, fox or a horse). To the point where the furry will actually want to have a sexual relationship with one.more...
