Haven't heard from Vurmin in several years, but I did try her email a couple days ago, and discovered she's still alive--just not active anymore.

Recently, a certain Swiss cheetah Mydeggi has announced that she's leaving the fandom and is selling her fursuit. She was a follower of mine on FA. Many of her fans were upset with the news too. Perhaps there are few furry events/activities in Switzerland.  The virus taking it's toll methinks.

Just curious, has anybody heard if any furs faded away due to the coronavirus? Any artists, fursuiters, etc.?

The artist formerly known as BabsBunny got it a few months ago, then recovered. One of her cats died however.

FoxDad webcomic hasn't updated in several months.

When it comes to webcomics, I'm down to SSDD and Twokinds; everything else has either ended or stopped updating.

Logging on for the first time in like 12 years and this thread is exactly what I was looking for.

So many people I still remember. I wonder how Pillowmint, Kattywampus, Lobar, SportyFox, Romper, and how all the other names that are just foggy memories, are doing. Thank you old school members for sharing a part of my teenage years with me. Remember what a big deal the CSI episode was? Man, time flies.

I heard that Koogs passed away several years ago. Ante and Sunookitsune are married. I'm (hopefully) buying a house next year.

I don't know if I'll ever be back here, so to whomever finds this message in a bottle, please know that this forum meant a lot to me growing up.

If anyone wishes to keep up with me, I'm @BoomtownFox on Twitter.

Good night and good luck. I love you all!

Pretty awesome that you were able to step back into Furtopia after all those years.  Glad Furtopia was special to you.  I am a late comer here and to the fandom.  But I can sort of see how this place would have been a safe and fun place for someone of that age.  I wish I had found this place when I was younger.  Who knows what my life would be now, probably funner!

I follow Ace of Hearts Fox on YouTube, but he's posted nothing in almost a year.

Got to meet Calamity at my very first fur con. This guy was awesome both in and out of suite. Great sense of humor. One of the best talking fursuiters in  the fandom. 
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.

There was CuteFoxie in Canada who often commented on my YouTube uploads. A fursuiter of course, but no word in several years.

Has anyone seen anything involving Drama Llama?

I used to watch Sunny Dingo on Youtube, but last video was years ago.  Does anyone know if I am just missing out since I do not use social media?
Is he active anymore?

Sunny Dingo is still active on Twitter, but I don't really keep up with suiters these days on socials. There's a ton of drama with fursuit makers so I tend to avoid following fursuiters cause unfortunately the drama will follow them, too. :/

Speaking of dingoes: It has been some time since Durango Dingo has appeared or posted anything. I recall a message in which he was critical of meat consumption--but "feesh" is okay.

Just learned on FB that Fred Michels Phrez Bear just passed. COVID related. Saw him last at MCFC 2021.

Abrahm Lion/Space Lion, who set up photoshoots at a number of cons over the years, has shut down his online access to photo albums. According to Wikifur, his last appearance at any furcon was in 2019.
