Someone who enjoys writing long, boring, apologetic definitions for their fursuit fetish.
Furry: What is it to be a furry? It is not a simple term to define. One has to consider, naturally, the anthropomorphic quality inherent in most instances of the proclivity, but really, it is more of a philosophy, a basic way of seeing a different form for yourself. That vision can be expressed in various ways, from artistry and poetic invention to socialization with like-minded folks. Generally, tbey share an interest in literature and imagery containing antrhopomorphic creatures. Most furries are pretty normal people, but in some cases...

Cynic: Dude, you get off dry humping people while wearing a fuzzy mascot suit and looking at doodled pictures of cat people.

Furry: W...what?

Cynic: Jeez, don't worry about it; whatever turns you on. I kind of like fat chicks. Just show some courtesy and shut up about it, ok? I don't go around saying that I've had some sort of intellectual revelation after I've shagged a whale.

Furry: *sniffle* But I don't...I mean, I mostly just appreciate the art and...

Cynic: Pardon me while I go appreciate some art "depicting" a BBW eating pork rinds and Twinkies off her belly.

Furry: You're sick.

Cynic: BUT AT LEAST I'M HONEST!!!

The term "furry" means any anthropomorphized animal. They are also known as "funny animals," but this is an outdated term. Since a furry is an anthropomorphic version of an animal, we can determine what a furry character is by carefully defining our usage of "anthropomorphic".

By definition an object is "anthropomorphic" if it has been given human attributes; these usually include the capacity for rational thought, emotions, and an upright posture. An anthropomorphic animal, therefore is a hybrid that is somewhere between a human and the original species.

Examples of furries abound, and these can surely cement the concept for any readers that stopped to re-read the above paragraphs. Most cartoon characters are furries (e.g. Donald Duck, Wile E. Coyote, Pink Panther, Quickdraw McGraw, etc.). Many cartoon characters are quite removed from the actual animals; their charicatured forms still retain many animalistic traits, however, and this identifies them as furries.

Many comic book characters (e.g. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Omaha the Cat Dancer, Usagi Yojimbo), movie characters (e.g. the Rippers in "Tank Girl", Barf in "Space Balls"), and mascots (e.g. the San Diego Chicken and Smokey the Bear) are also, at a basic level, anthropomorphized animals.

Finally, furries are also commonly found in artwork, literature, and mythology (I won't bother to list examples here; I think you've got the idea by now). These are diverse categories, and this is one reason that it is hard to develop a comprehensive notion of what constitutes a "furry".
I like to draw furry artwork.

A furry is an anthropomorphic animal. You often see them in cartoons or advertising.

Furry characters, sometimes difficult to describe in prose, often come to life on the comics page. Some popular anthropomorphic comics include Usagi Yojimbo, a samurai rabbit created by Stan Sakai, and Shanda the Panda, a modern single-girl panda by Mike Curtis.

Noun: Furry

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.
The majority of people in furry fandom are either Bi or Gay but you also do get Straight and Male or Female people in the furdom as well

As in most (sub)cults theres a darkside which involes sex, people who fetish with animals, but not everybody is like this.
The furdom ranges differntly from person to person it can be just people who like drawing animals or anthropomorphic animals (Animals with human features, such a human with cat ears) or a person who likes to dress up in there fursona fursuiter or just likes to act as there favorite animal

Normally people who are furries have a fursona, some don't, some have more then one its up to the person. People may also wear tailes/fursuits/fur heads/paws either around the house, or out in public or not at all its up to the person.

Furry does not revolve around sex, not everyone wants to go and yiff another furry, this is where its mostly confused with them thinking all people like having sex with people who are furry, you belive that your wrong.

The age can range from a person young as 13, to up to the age of 60, as I said above not all people want to have sex with the animal/furry
Person1: Hey, you want to go out into town on saturday?
Person2: Sure can I bring my tail?
Person1: Go for it
----
Person1: I herd of a furry con
Person2: Sounds intresting, I may go
Person1: I'm going to get my fursuit ready
Person2: I may bring my tail

A furry is a person who feels a bond with a certain species of animals and is active in conservation of wildlife and environment. Not to be confused with bestiality and zoophilia, Furries are usually found in parks or pubs being normal and earning money. Some furs will wear a fursuit or a tail, for example, but because there are many narrow-minded people many Furs are too scared to wear their Furry items in public. Being Furry is merely an expression of love for the animal kingdom.
I can't go out this weekend; I'm going out with my furry friends for a drink.
