Calamity Cougar is living in Memphis now. He'll be at Mephit Furmeet and Fangcon this year.  Yippee Coyote is still very active.  The last time I saw Camo Rovak was at Megaplex in 2016.

I was very disappointed with the Funday Pawpet Show closing down. The free server they were using to stream the show suddenly shut down.  And Yappy Fox who ran the show for 17 years was just burned out doing it and having to ask for money to pay for new equipment and royalties so they could play music on the show.

A lot of furries have abandoned posting on FA and are using Weasyl, Twitter, Telegraph, Instagram or Facebook.

(PS: Hi everyone, I haven't been on Furtopia in a long time, glad its still going strong!)

Eggplantman has disappeared.  The fate of Catswhisker is unknown.  Borni's got a LOT of health issues...

Greifer Fox has retired his old threadbare suit in grand fashion. A new one is now in play.

They decided to bring back the Funday Pawpet show, even though they will put out an episode once a month and no outside music.

The suiter once known as Camo Rovak sold his fursuit, changed his name to Eigen Rovak (I think) and removed his fursuiting videos from public viewing on YouTube.

MTigress, who posts on YouTube, and appeared--in fursuit--at FC 07 in a James Bond 007 fursuit parody. She has not updated her channel in six years.

Haven't seen anything from either Jase Husky or Kellogg Collie in over a year.

I befriended Rabbitfangs only months before he passed on.

Discovered an amazing harajuku fursuiter--a furry lolita--named Albino Coyote recently on FA. Several years ago, she moved to Traverse City, MI and idled her FA account. Her other furry account address appears inactive. I'd apply a "heartbroken" emoji were one available.

My pal Zippy Coyote, who lives in Maryland and was setting up furry bowling meets, went silent on FA some months ago due to illness.

Has anyone heard from John "Eggplantman" Mann?  He was the artist behind the Zodiac webcomic.

We have learned that the fursuiter known as Tycho Aussie has shut down his FA account. He may have gone inactive due to a number of RL issues.  An attendee at both AC and MCFC, also GLFC 14.

We hung out at a few cons. He's a science teacher at MSU and a ham radio guy. Caught Lyme disease some months ago, but apparently okay now. He posted a furry meme on FB today.

I was going to crack a joke about a furry getting ticks and getting Lyme disease,  but it's not a joking matter really.  Glad he is still with us !

I'll have to send him a flea and tick collar, maybe 20" ?

Many furs get as much of what the Fandom offers as they can. Some travel the country, if not the world, to attend furry events. As much as time and budget will allow. It's likely to be able to attend a furcon or major meet each weekend--barring pandemics as is presently the case.

So easy to burnout.  Some speak of post-con-depression. People change and so do events. These are facts of life. Learn to accept it and roll with the punches. Just remember that you're not alone and you have friends here who also experience these things. Keep calm and carry on.

There were a lot of good artists I used to enjoy seeing on Furtopia that I now miss. Names like:
Patrick Rangerwolf
Ulario
Hockeyraven
Autumn Fire
Sheeta
Kattywampus
.........and too many others to list. :(

Old post I know, but I'd almost forgotten about Patrick. I loved his drawings back when I was first getting rolling in the fandom.
