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.

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!!!

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."

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 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.
