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.

A false term of Scaly, Scaly's are dragon lovers, people claimed "Furry" as a animal lover as an anthro perspective.
Guy 1: "Furry's are better then Scaly's."
Guy 2: "Stop acting like you are original."

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.

Evolution of the furry:

1 - (baby) Has a little teddy bear.
2 - (kid) Adopts a cat/dog.
3 - (teen) Becomes vegetarian because of a stupid movie/cartoon or a random hippie they want to fuck.
4 - (teen) Becomes obsessed with Pokemon or My Little Pony.
5 - (young adult) Prefers the company of animals to the company of humans.
6 - (20s) Starts having dreams/fantasies involving his furry friends.
7 - (25) Becomes fully zoophile and lives bestiality to the fullest.
8 - (30s) Realizes he's a sick fuck and nobody will ever accept this devious and disgusting fetish.
9 - (40s) Tries therapy because he wants to live a normal life.
10 - (50s) Therapy fails. Becomes a fox.
"Hey guyz, look at this MLP real size doll I got from ebay! It's beautiful isn't it?"

"Eeeeewww you sick disgusting furry."

Furries are people who in some way are unhappy with their actual lives/self and look for another outlet to make themselves feel better. In this case, being a furry facilitates this need by allowing the individual to not only hide their indentity but to also act in a way unlike their normal behavior. This is in my opinion a wonderful way to make oneself feel better about being "different", because they can find a way to fit in. Furries are people too. Please respect them and treat them as you would like to be treated. No one is forcing you to participate in the Furry Fandom. If someone approaches you and forces upon you unwanted attention, ask them to stop. Simple as that.
Being a furry is a wonderful way to express ones' differences, and causes no one harm.
