n., adj. In the broadest definition, someone who finds the idea of anthropomorphic (humanlike) animals, in art, fiction, cartoons, costume, or other media, to be an appealing one. Furries are an extremely diverse group and no one furry may possess all, or any, of the traits typically associated with the group; furries can range from people who are fans of old Warner Bros. and Disney cartoons; people who enjoy portraying anthropomorphic animals in art; people who enjoy imagining what a future, past or alternative world might be like if humans were replaced with or accompanied by anthropomorphic animals; and people who like wearing costume tails, ears and/or animal mascot costumes, to those who feel spiritual connections to animals or to the animal form; those who admire the beauty, power, speed or grace of of the animal form; those who believe they have empathy with or can communicate with animals, for example people who work with them; people who have a great deal of respect for animal welfare; and people who find the concept of anthropomorphic animals enjoyable in a sexual way. (Amongst many, many other things.)

Those who do enjoy the erotic/adult side of furry are, like those who participate in any other sexual fetish or behaviour, almost always harmless in their indulgence of their fantasies, which usually involves erotic art and roleplay, and may involve consenting activities with fellow adults while in costume. Why people get uptight about what is such a cute, silly and affectionate expression of pleasure between two (or more) consenting adults when there's much worse out there to get worked up about such as child abuse, I'll never understand.

It's about fun, people. Try it sometime.
n. Furries often attend conventions.

adj. Furry art incoroprates many diverse forms of media.

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 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.
Tony the Tiger is an example of a furry.

People who are into anthropomorphic animals. Animals that have human characteristics. May have sexual, romantic or no attraction to them. Furries join the fandom through costume, art, song, writing, and all sorts of art forms, and may create a 'fursona'. Their sexual interest in humans also relates to what they would be attracted on anthropomorphic animals. Some are exclusively attracted to furries only and some are not. Some are attracted to real animals which is zoophilia, and some are not. Just like real people, some of them are bad, some of them are fine.
"My son Cameron told me he wants to be a furry yesterday… He said he wanted to go to conventions in costume and that the people in the hobby are friendly to him and that the suit helps him be himself."

"I had a cousin who was a furry… He got arrested for animal abuse because he was openly having sex with his pets in his fursuits. The police also found many pictures of cartoon animals having sex, and emails to his online friends trading him pictures of each other having sex with their pets and arrested his friends as well."

A highly misunderstood fandom. A lot of non-furries believe that all furries have sex with everybody. Even the media is saying stuff like this. Although this is not true, people still think that they do, and it's not right at all. That's like saying every webpage on the internet has something to do with porn.
I'm furry and I'm proud! don't like it? I don't give a shit.
John:I'm a furry and I'm proud!
Bob:You are a fur-fag
John:I don't give a crud of what you have to say about me.

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.
