    I turned into an animal lover when I got my first dog at age one. She was a sheepdog named Annabelle and we treated her to the finest gourmet she could fetch.
    Now that I'm a lot older I recently got a pet dog n cat from PetSmart and they've been such a nice responsibility to keep up with.

    What's y'alls backstories turnin into a furry?

    Mr. Fox This is what the fandom did to me!

    My story changes every time the subject is brought up as I can never quite remember how I became a furry.

    Was it that time I was bit by a radioactive furry one night?

    Was it that time I was bent over the table by a man in an animal costume?

    Or was it that time I encountered Bigfoot?

    Who knows, but I am one now so there's no denying it. But careful, it's contagious.

    Seems like I had such a nice childhood.Reading stories,watching a lot of animated stuff.And all of this is no accident.Its just who I am,it describes me and I accept this gift even if some people might think that I am some kind of bloody freak that loves being a furry.That's why I love this "honesty of mind". That being said,my childhood turned me into a furry.Peace.

    Just imagine if there was no internet in the first place.Worse than Hell.

    No way Mr.!There must be something special that makes you a furry.A special moment in your life,a seed(maybe seeds) that grew in time and made the person you are today.

    Mine's pretty bad, I suppose. I was exposed to furry porn a few years ago, and I liked it a lot. Took me a while to get away from just that stuff and get interested in the community for more than just porn. Not a glamorous way to join the community but it is how it happened. Now that I'm here I really enjoy talking to people and being myself, believe it or not, I'm pretty much an introvert when you meet me in person. This community has become a nice break from that for me.

    My story is probably the most boring one. I can't remember if it was Disney or an anime that introduced me to anthromorphic animals. Then I started to research on the Internet. I liked the idea but all my friends were into anime (I never had furry friends) so we never talked about it but I have always sat on the outskirts of the fandom until recently.

    I just recently came out of the furry closet, so to speak.

    I was in denial for years, then one of my art friends told me that I could make good money off furry commissions, so I tried it. I found that I really like drawing furries and I think I'll be okay so long as I stay on the SFW side.

    For me, I was obsessed with the Krypto the Superdog cartoon as a kid. The idea of an animal that could talk just blew my mind. Then I found anthro characters (and the art that came with it) and I just really liked it. With a little more research, I found fursuiters and I knew that I wanted to be a part of the fandom

    When I was in middle/high school, I was really into anime, manga, and Japanese culture. I would frequent Gaia online and roleplay a lot in their forums and such. I always dressed my avatar up as a bunny, and subsequently went by the nickname "Bunny"... because well, I love bunnies!!

    I wasn't aware of the Fandom at that time, so I didn't really have a label to stick to myself. I grew out of my extreme interest in the stuff after a few years, when I got a job and my life got too busy to keep up with my internet personas (age 13-19ish)

    It wasn't until later last year, when I got together with my bf, that I was "reintroduced" to the Furry Fandom/concept (just turned 27). He told me he was a Furry, and I poked my nose back into things and essentially can say that I identify as one too. Not a subject I freely discuss in my personal or professional life simply because of the ignorance on the subject and the negative "stigma" associated with it by those who would rather believe anything else instead of doing their own research on it... but that's why I am here, to have you guys to talk with and share stuff with and have a sense of "community".

    Also, always have been interested in anthropomorphic anime and art. Been sketching it for as long as I can remember.

    My boyfriend is a furry and I finally gave in when I tried on a fursuit head.

    Growing up I've always thought werewolves were hot and eventually I went online and discovered furries and that's what did me in lol. As far as telling people I don't think its really any of their business. My best friend knows and we joke about it but everyone else Ive left in the dark lol. Everything furry about me basically keep it online.

  15. Id say somewhere around the mid 90's. I was obsessed with drawing anthropomorphic foxes, rabbits, and such. Didn't really discover that there was a fandom until around 2005. Was a closet furry for over 10 years, as my ex hated the drawings. Been trying to redevelop the skill.

    What kind of girlfriend or boyfriend hates the stuff their significant other is passionate about so much to make them quit doing it? That's just mean. I'm glad you're getting back into it. The world could always use more artists.

    I've always liked the stuff... I just didn't realise it until later. When I got my computer and was exposed to the *cough* sexier side of the fandom.
