Hm, well I always loved drawing anthro animals though I didn't know that was the name.
I remember receiving an email from my boyfriend where he told me and few others he was a furry.
I was curious, since I had heard the term, but wasn't sure what it meant.

He told me some things, directed me to Pocari Roo and a few other Furry Youtubers then I spent a month trying to come up with a fursona, though I haven't drawn her yet.
Not very interesting, but it's a story.
Why not?

Well, I guess you could have called me a furry in denial, a few years ago.

It all got started when I was about 10, and I started playing Oblivion (An Elder Scrolls game) for the first time. I always had a fascination with the anthropomorphic races in that game- the Argonians and Khajiits (especially Argonians). It sort of launched me into my obsession with reptiles, two of which I now own. I also loved Spyro the Dragon at the time, and I always loved Disney’s anthropomorphic animal characters, as I grew up on Disney.

When I started my life on the internet, I eventually ran into another furry, and from then on, I sort of lurked around the fandom until I found myself here!

I’ve been unafraid to call myself a furry ever since~

YouTube videos mostly, and I always liked the anthro animals in cartoons and comics and the such. Sonic the Hedgehog played a huge part in me being a furry and was my very first fursona (thinking about going back to him actually).


Also, a lot of nice furry people. Can't forget them.

I fell in love with anthro art in middle school and then I dug more into it in highschool and created a wolf fursona but never did anything with her.  Then more recently I was like "Oh crap this is like a great escape and good coping mechanism" so here I am with a new fursona

I found out I was a furry in the following way:                              (and it was, like, a week ago so i remember)

To start off, I always loved animals and fursuits, and I wanted one. Then Zootopia came out when I was in 5th grade and I went to watch it, and loved it. That was the base. Then, 2 months ago, a youtuber I followed relesed a video on the topic, and I started to consider it. I said: ,,YES I AM A FURRY!'' but didnt do anithing about it. And a week ago The youtube algoritm spat out furry videos, I became interested again, and Here I am!

How did I become a furry...
Well I am not entirely sure if I am one, but a while ago I heard the term. More recently I found myself learning more and more about what a furry is, and I guess over time I started to realise I might be one. I was then soon lead here, where I can to find whether or not I really am a furry, or simply fascinated with your unique community.

I guess my fursona is one of these:
