A furry which has been stated in "Guinness Book of World Records 2008" is said to be a club genre for a subculture that enjoys dressing up as animals. "Furries" as they are known, meet at confurences and share their love of animal anthropomorphism - that is, the depiction of animals with human characteristics.
An anthropomorphism or "Furry" could be known as the rabbits in Richard Adams novel "Watership Down".

A hobby/genre which focuses on artwork and stories about animal-headed people. Unfortunately, the brainless boglumps from anti-furry websites just don't "get" furry fandom and clutter up UrbanDictionary with flimsy crapulence because they're incapable of creating anything of their own.

Let's break it down so there can be no confusion: You don't have to think you're an animal to be a furry fan. You don't have to rave about your inner platypus to be a furry fan. You don't have to insert the word "fur" into every sentence to be a furry fan. You don't have to wear a fursuit to be a furry fan. You don't have to like furry porn to be a furry fan.

Most furries are just folks who thought "The Lion King" or "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" or even Sonic the Hedgehog was majorly cool. They write about and draw cartoon animals. I have no idea why this makes some people go apeshit, but there ya go.
Furry fandom makes the brainless boglumps from CrushYiffDestroy waste their lives away and that's just sad.

Not to be confused with people who have a "yiff" paraphilia.
The broadest definition is an "anthropomorphic enthusiast" the same way a trekie is an "star trek enthusiast".
Some might say they are a furry because they collect stuffed animals or "plushies". Some might say so because they enjoy anthropomorphic films/television programmes such as Balto or The lion king.
Like most fandom cults they hold conventions where they get to meet eachother and discuss anthropomorphic topics, dress up in anthropomorphic costumes aka "fursuits", play dance-dance revolution and have a good time.
Some people collect stamps I guess.
The lion king was the only decent furry movie Ive ever seen.

Furry is the commonly-accepted name of a branch of the Science Fiction Fandom focusing on animals with humanlike characteristics, or anthropomorphic animals with abilities to do things like walk and talk.

Sometimes conventions are held for people in the fandom to go meet each other. While some of them like to wear animal-related accessories (like fake ears and tails) and others make elaborate costumes to look like there ideal furry character, this is by no means a requirement.

There are a lot of furry artists and writers as well, who draw and write about anthropomorphic animals.
Are you going to the furry convention next month?

I like to collect furry art.

A furry is any sort of half-animal/half-human creatures, usually bipedal. Most commonly appearing in the form of "talking animals" or "animal-headed people." Many are familiar cartoon characters, such as Bugs Bunny or Mickey Mouse.

A furry is also sometimes used as shorthand to mean a furry fan, i.e., anyone who likes anthropomorphic animals. There is a small but growing fandom for people who like furries.

A furry hater is someone who is willfully ignorant about furries and goes around making stuff up about them on UrbanDictionary.
The common response from people when you ask "Have you ever heard of furry fandom?" is "No." That doesn't mean they're furry haters, they've just never heard of furry fandom.

Furry fandom is pretty awesome.

I'm a furry,so hear me out. There is no single definition of what a furry is. Some like to yiff,some like art,some like writing,some like playing online games.

groups:

1.Furverts. The kind that you find making yiffing videos on pr0n sites and such and often look at adult art.

2.Fursuiters. Those who wear animal costumes or just tails and ears.

3.Furries. Those who like art,stories,games,etc.

4. Otherkin. those who don't believe they're human in spirit.
Anti-fur: Why are you wearing a tail?

me:because I'm a furry.

Anti-fur:what's a furry?

Me:um, we are people who identity with animals.

anti-fur:OMG! You're one of those animal fuckers! Stay away from me!

me:Um, actually being a furry doesn't have anything to do with zoophilia.

anti-fur:pervert.
