I'm the "furry as an interest and hobby" kind. Not therian, otherkin or anything like that.

I consider myself to be both therian and furry. They're two seperate identities, though they are connected with each other.

It's a hobby for me as well. Although it's clear I've been furry all my life. At three I had Yogi Bear as an imaginary friend.  The world Cause comes from was created as an escape. A place I can go to that's usually always calm and peaceful. I don't consider myself Cause. He's only a partial reflection of my personality. And a 'mask' I can hid behind when I do start preforming in front of people again.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

I find reptiles and other creatures with scales very cute so that's why I'm a scalie.

Furry is a hobby for me that sometimes borders on therianthropy. It's kind of difficult to describe...I have dreams and meditations with animal guides, and I do feel strongly connected to big cats and horses. There are times when I take walks that I envision myself as a horse, trotting about. But I don't consider myself a horse or big cat 100%...I am definitely more human than animal.

Therian / Furry mix over here.
Think of it as serious contemplation of one's self on one side, and whatever the hell I should come up with for fun on the other.

Therian here, writer - and furry by coincidence  :D

I got involved with the furry fandom two years ago, right after Anthrocon 2015.
Prior to the event, I knew abolutely nothing about the furry fandom. I didn't even know  the "furry" subculture existed.
Sure, I had seen fursuiters cosplaying at RPG cons,  but I'd always assumed they were characters from videogames or cartoons, and didn't think much about it.
Then, at AC 2015 It was like having an epiphany when I was introduced to the concept of  "fursona"

 - and once again, I totally missed the point:  I confused furries for therians.  :-[

I thought furries wore partials to make up for phantom limbs, and for days I lived a waking dream of being "among my own".
I bought a real fox tail and wore it for three days straight. Politically incorrect yes, but I just wanted to grow my damn tail back! (Sorry foxy.)
It wasn't close to how my own tail "used to feel" because I'm not a fox therian, but it was better than nothing
and man! I was at home with my fellow fuzzbutts.

Then, little by little I discovered how my new friends swooned all over drawings and cartoons of  anthropomorphic animals, while I just couldn't get enthusiastic about the same.
I thought the whole furry art thing was...hey! pretty cool, but we clearly didn't express our interets in the same way.
They liked to explore the idea of human and non human in the same being, while it was a little more personal for me.

Well, two years have passed and I've made a lot of friends in the furry fandom.
I read their stories and they read mine. I attend furry conventions and I fursuit side-by-side with blue huskies and pink bronies, and we generally connect on many levels.
Just not all of them.

Just a fuzzy tailed long eared furry.  :orbunny:

Mainly a hobby, but I do enjoy the artwork and
stories about anthropomorphic animal characters.

Ever since I was a little fellow I have enjoyed the
fantasy of humanoid animals. When other kids were
reading super hero comics I was reading Disney
, Bugs Bunny, and other animal character comics.
