I am a *huge* fan of female neko, furry, and cartoon animal characters, so much so that I have been drawing them pretty much non-stop for the past 17-years and have been fawning over them whenever I have seen them in television shows, movies, video games, comic books, etc. In fact, I will consume just about any form of media for the sole reason that it contains a female anthropomorphic character that I find attractive. If I find anything else that I like about the media, then that is just bonus points for it! For some examples, I originally started subscribing to Fred Perry's Gold Digger
comic books over a decade ago because they had Britanny the were-cheetah and Sheila the were-jaguar in them, I pretty much only watched Digimon Tamers
thanks to Renamon, and I became a huge fan of DiC's Heathcliff
thanks to Cleo and Roxy! In addition, you could guarantee that I spent quite a bit of time in movie theaters this year thanks to Angelique the fox from Rango
, Master Tigress from Kung Fu Panda 2
, Kanga from Winnie the Pooh
, and Nala from The Lion King 3D
. (Can you feel the love tonight, because with Nala in 3D I definitely could!
) Heck, even little kids shows don't escape my attention if a female anthropomorphic character contained in it is alluring enough. I've been known in the past to sit through episodes of Encore Enterprise's Buttons & Rusty
to see Rosie the fox, CINAR Animation's Sagwa, The Chinese Siamese Cat
to see Mama Miao, and PorchLight Entertainment's Animalia
to see Fushia, a fox with a French accent to name a few! It's all good to me if it gives me another sultry female furry character to draw! As far as video games go, I actually bought the CPS2 A and B boards (a.k.a. the electronic guts) from the stand-up Capcom arcade game Darkstalkers
because I wanted my time spent with Felicia the Catwoman from that game to be as authentic of an experience as possible, and only bought a Nintendo GameCube due to a couple of game titles for it that happen to have a certain British-accent-speaking staff-wielding blue fox femme in them!
There was even one old cable television show that proved that the female furry characters didn't even have to be animated for me to like them-- have you ever seen the character "Lilli" from The Disney Channel's 1984 television show Dumbo's Circus
? If you check the YouTube video of Lilli linked to below you will see what I mean about her:YouTube: Dumbo's Circus - Lilli's Mystery(The only Lilli-mystery for me is what is lying beneath that trench-coat! Har har har!)
So when it comes to answering the question of which female anthropomorphic characters that I have a crush on, my answer would have to be what female anthropomorphic characters haven't
I had a crush on? I have been swooning over these characters for years before I ever knew that such a thing as the furry fandom existed, and I joined the fandom because it largely contained a like-minded group of individuals who didn't think that I was weird for drawing Vixey from The Fox and the Hound
dozens of times over in my sketchbooks, or for watching the animated film Balto
endlessly because I thought that Jenna was hot! And as an added bonus to joining the furry fandom, I met dozens of other extremely talented furry artists who draw the very kind of sleek female furry pin-up drawings that I adore (and I have spent *way* too much money buying that art, believe me), and I have even ran into a few people who have actually wanted to buy some of my own artwork too! For the female furry enthusiast, being in this fandom is definitely a win-win situation!
I suppose that if I had to choose one fine furry femme to showcase above all others, it would have the be Duchess, the mother cat from The Aristocats
. She was arguably my first major furry crush ever. Not along after first discovering girls in general I started to notice that there was something that was completely captivating about Duchess, and despite the risk of the ridicule that I would receive from my peers and my younger siblings at the time (it wasn't considered cool back in Middle School to be watching Disney cartoons, you know), I squirreled away the family VHS copy of The Aristocats
in my bedroom and watched the movie dozens of times on the weekends after the rest of my family had gone to bed so that no one would know. These days (when I can actually afford to, anyway) I collect original animation productions cels of her, and I currently have five of them framed and hanging up as part of my Duchess shrine in my room!
