Since my fursona is a part of me I often use the two terms interchangeably. Sometimes I say, "I am a timber wolf." Other times I say, "My fursona is a timber wolf". Both terms describe me.

Whenever I admit to someone I'm a furry, I just say "My fursona is a wolf." :-[ But with my close friends I say "I'm a wolf." :) But either way no one understands what I'm talking about. lol :D

I am as we all are Human in the real world.  It allows me to be anythihg I
desire in fantasy.  If I could I would be a shapeshifter so I could experience
being other creatures.

I feel a kinship to rabbits since I am generally shy and not very out
going.  So I may be there but usually hidden. I know other creatures
have a similar nature, but I just don't feel the same with them.


Yes, I wish I could shapeshift!

I seem to have some kind of connection with cats. They always always seem to like me better than they like other humans. I've had stray cats and farm cats following me around on numerous occasions throughout my life, even greeting me when I pull into the driveway and step out of the car.

I feel much closer to my fursona when I pretend to be her. It's fun, too.

Yes, Saskia, furry is something fun and different.  :)

I picked the jaguar avatar out of the list of options when I created my own profile because I liked that picture best. I think that any kind of feline would be a good choice though. If I ever draw my own fursona someday, I might have some kind of mix of different types of felines. Cats for the win! (:

As for the original post that started this topic, I can only speak for myself. I accept that I am human and simply like animals and the idea of anthropomorphic animals.

As far as I know, most furries accept that they're human and merely like to pretend.

People who see themselves as being something else and merely having a human body usually call themselves otherkin, therians, or vampires. (Source: Wikipedia article on otherkin).

However, even though I accept being human, I also believe in God and in Heaven. So I think it would be awesome if furries can be their fursonas in Heaven and have the ability to change shape.

I think it's all a metter of opinion. For example, my fursona is a reflection of my personality and everything that I find important in life so I say "I'm a stray cat who has the body shape of a human with grey fur and white stripes " :D
Using faces instead of punctuation is just how I roll ^w^

For a good bit of furries our fursonas are actually a part of us. And for therians there is sometimes no difference. I do think of myself as feline. I definitely relate to them most and am a therian, so that answers the question for me.

Ehh we find humans to be boring. We just see ourselves as dragons and try to ignore all the pink squishy people around us. Yes, we know that we are human in general, but it just seems too mundane, to say that we are human just like everyone else. So when someone asks us what our name(s) are, we tell them we are Dodbringr/Vladimir/Xavier, and we are DRAGONS!  :D

I be a human.  A human who happens to have animalistic mannerisms, but a human nonetheless.

I wish, therefore I am... Although I'm not. If only that were the case.

I despise quite a few aspects of being human; Being such a hypocritical species is SO draining. Among other physical things. I would NEVER be as strong, fast, agile, flexible, furry, and overall awesome as Arashi; Calling myself a Liani is a sort of mental bucket of ice water when I'm too exhilirated for my own good. Problem is, it tends to ALSO do that when I'm upset an dmaking me go into yet ANOTHER session of self-loathing.

A 'Solus Cat' is my evolution on my older species, the Hreldren. But better.

As said by redyoshi in the IRL pic section, I think this (really old) post says it best:

I'm a human who likes to pretend to be an animal on the internet.

When talking to furrys I say "I'm a cat" but when I talk to non-furrys and am explaining the fandom to them I say "My fursona is a cat".

I would say that the reason we say we are ________ is because

A: It's quicker and easier
and be
B: Rolpalyyy!! :D :D

When I'm referring to my non-human self and among those who understand my context (furry and/or therian), then I think it makes sense :3
