I like animals, specially anthro aswell as most people on the fandom are awesome! And it also helped me discover some things that I was afraid of before.

I really love the art and creativity in this forum, and the fact that anyone is accepted no matter what you enjoy. I wish I could draw better, because I quite enjoy furry art :)

Being in this new world, this community with so many fantastical people, animals and other creatures. I simply feel like I belong in the community. As cliché or weird as it sounds (especially since I haven't actually been to conventions, firm sets, etc... yet), it feels more natural to take part in furry activities than to take part in non-fur activities.

My favorite thing about being a furry is the fandom itself. I didn't become an active fan--going to furry events, interacting online--until 6 months ago, though in hindsight I've probably been furry for several years and never really recognized it. The fans I have met have met have been outgoing, positive, enthusiastic, and good to hang out with. The fandom has taken a depressed, widowed old greymuzzle and made him a much happier person.

I've never felt judged, criticized, or put down by other fans. A month ago I fursuited for the first time at the age of 58. No one  said I was too old. No one told me to go sit in the rocking chair in the corner. The reaction among the 30 or so other fursuiters at the event was "You're one of us now. Have fun!" And I did. It was crazy. It was cool. It was magical.

I'm astonished at how easy it is to forge connections with other fans. Starting with that first visit to a local furbowl I've made contacts with more fans in my home state, across the country, and abroad. We're bound together through a common love of the anthropomorphic.

In a few days I'm headed to BLFC, fursuit in tow. Camera, too. Thanks to several excellent photographers--photografurs--in the fandom I've picked that up as a hobby. At Further Confusion I was pretty much a spectator. Now I'm a participant. Furry and fursuiter for life.

The fantasy of it. The stories, the artwork. I have always enjoyed
the fantasy of animals with human thought and speech. Be they
farel or anthropomorphic in form.

again soon.

At first it was the creativity, now it's the community itself. I've never felt more welcome anywhere online. :D

for me its mostly that i just prefer the looks of anthros over humans and i'd rather look like one. so pretty much only anthros (the community is ok but like all communities you got those few annoying/disturbing people)

The art, stories and community (Well, the quiet majority of it anyways).

Fursuiters--living, breathing cartoon characters and plush toys with their own kind of magic--also the art.

Everything about it. The art, comics, creativity, (obviously, anthros themselves), and how accepting the community is. You guys welcomed me with open arms, and I love that. Being able to open up such a big part of me, and share it with others without judgement is amazing.

I can't say specifically. Part is the awesome community. While it is not perfect, most of them are very nice and interesting, and diverse people. I love most of the art too, though I am not good at it myself. Then there are the fursonas, their personalities, and uniqueness. I always loved animals, especially foxes.

It's something fun and cool to get into, and there is no single best part, as it is all very fun. :)

The community is nice. As is the whole identifying as an animal without getting wierd looks thing.
Meddle not in the affairs of robot dogs for you are crunchy and make an excellent fuel source.

The concept! (this includes any kind of art) and combine it with some creativity and other stuff to make it even better. I combine this fandom with other stuff that isn't furry, like aliens, monsters,  beast, weres, weird hybrids, fantastic chars, mythological ones, etc
