    i chose a kitty cat because they are very submissive to people they like (most of 'em anyways), but when they get pissed off....

    I went to a convention (not a furry one btw) and i got these red fox ears and I was really into the red color and that's how velvet was born. :p

    I found myself rummaging through trash one day.

    Alternatively, I made a list of animals I liked/thought were cute (it was... a very long list) and then poked through the behavior that has been observed by said animal, and varied lores around them.
    (Raccoons lore considers them tricksters, they have been known to be able to fiddle and open locks, they are semi-solitary and they eat everything. It me. :v )

    I really wanted one that I thought fit who I am.

    If I had gone solely by my personality, I probably would have gone with a bear (plus bears are my favorite animal), but I wanted one that matched my body type, as well as my personality and behavior, and let's just say I don't exactly look like a bear. I decided to go with something canine, considering I have really sensitive ears and sense of smell, plus I consider myself very loyal to those I form some sort of relationship with. I also thought I'd go with some sort of hybrid animal, since I'm biracial. I decided on a Coyolf (coyote/wolf), since I live in Texas and there's coyotes everywhere here, and I love werewolves. I looked up a picture of a coyolf, and they're pretty slim, like me. Badda-bop, my 'sona was born!

    Hmmmm was kind of a tigress at first-- but after careful consideration I felt as if my personality was more... erm bunny like and not AS fierce as a tigress would be (for me) also my mate agreed he enjoys me more as a bun anyway ahha >A>;

    I had to choose between an owl and a cat in terms of personality.
    On the one hand, I am very catlike. Kind of a curious but avoidant thing that has an easy time staying alone and sleeping. I don't respond very well to being ordered around.
    But on the other hand, I have a lot in common with the "fairytale" personality of the owl. Grumpy, logical, and seems a bit difficult to be friends with.
    Eventually, I landed on owl because I liked the look of them more. I also decided to incorporate some Teslapunk aspects and be a very high-voltage owl.

    well... my fursona was originally a peacock spider but the design and dark colours never sat right w/ me
    so i ended up just w/ a stereotypical dog like literally everyone, bc i'm kinda a dog person (tho i still rly love cats)

    he's kinda a dog/cat hybrid in a way? (cat part being his behaviour, ears and tail... rest is dog) and his colours are pastels bc, well... i love pastels haha (and they're more enjoyable to colour w/)

    Doodle Bunny Frequently says stupid things.

    I used to be a huge wolfaboo as a kid and that was kinda the animal I used for years. Now that I'm an adult, I realize, no, I'm definitely not a wolf. I picked a rabbit because I'm small and kinda timid IRL. It fits me best.

    -Praydeth- The Trickster coyote.

    Read up on coyotes because i thought they were cool. Then I saw their depictions in American Indian & aztec mythology Thought the depictions were close my personality. (Besides being the god of seduction of course) And i got where I am now.
  11. Kipekee Reddington

    Kipekee Reddington All American Flying Foxdog

    I'm a winged Foxdog for several reasons :)

    Firstly, I am a fox because I believe it's the animal that suits my personality best. Playful, goofy, witty, I love meat and the forest, etc. I am a red fox specifically because I find to be the most visually appealing.
    I'm also a domestic dog because even if the fox side of me is very wild and loud, I have a calmer, more empathic and friendly side to me too. I'm an Australian Shepherd specifically because I've grown up with them all my life, so I've kind of developed a bond with them ^^
    Lastly, the wings are supposed to symbolize me breaking free from my bad past. I've had lots of emotional issues within the past couple years and Im working with myself to get better. They're supposed to be angel wings- dead and brought back to life.

    Besides, I always wanted to fly.

    I chose a wolf/raccoon hybrid, it represents me because im like half raccoon, like im a trickster and half wolf because of heir loyalty, strength and courage, which is based on native american folk law

    I don't think I could've gone with anything but a cat. Grew up with eight cats (and still have five at home), my college campus hosts a bunch of strays, played a Khajiit in Skyrim (which is still my favorite game and I have a lot of fond memories with that character), had an unhealthy Warriors obsession through grade school (which inspired me to go into art), witnessed with horror the Lolcats boom of the early 2000s...cats just helped mold a huge chunk of my life. I have to give back a little appreciation.
    Plus, the personality and quirks fit decently well. I do love fish and being a lazy fuck. And domestic cats have a lot of variety in personality; they can be goofy, mysterious, clever, dumb, sociable, solitary. And I've always had trouble boxing off my personality into a few definable characteristics, so I like having that flexibility.
    Also born in the Year of the Tiger so I guess that works out, too. :b

    My fursona is an akita/husky mix because to me, the akita is a bad ass dog. They can be very aggressive, strong, but they're also hella soft, lovable and protective which are all traits I do carry.

    The husky to me, represents speed, being active and I guess "quick on their feet" so I would like to think of myself as someone who is frequently active, sharp and down to earth. Huskies also are sled dogs, so they carry heavy loads and it's like I can relate to that because I have a lot of responsibilities that I didn't have when my mom was alive. I'm just becoming an adult and I want to create the best possible foundation for my future, so that comes with a lot of stress and doing well in school and getting into to the University of Washington Seattle

    I tend to make my fursona better then myself and have traits that I want to fulfill which kinda helps me live a more successful life in a way

    I decided that I should be a red fox because I fell in love with a cute and innocent-looking, but ill-fated vixen archaeologist. From that moment onward, red foxes, both real and anthro were my true love.

    Wolvian (Wolf/avian)

    I could explain this to death on every thread but TL;DR canids have been my love in life and fascination since childhood and I felt close and connected to them, I couldnt choose a favorite dog and wolves were where dogs branched of in descendence so I admired and loved them since. Besides that the loyalty and pack mentality suited me, I'm either a lone wolf myself or fiercely attached to my pack.

    Avian because I was a fan of the maximum ride series, and fascinated by hybrids (it was some books about avian-human children who had wings and could fly). Ive had flying dreams before too, with and without wings.

    The type of wolf is Florida black wolf because I used to live in Florida, and Eurasian gryphon vulture because of the history behind it and how it represents me.

    Eurasian Gryphon vulture.
    That vulture has an interesting history I saw in a documentary, you see. The tibetan people did not have a way to bury their dead, so in their belief they fed their dead to the vultures, who would carry their bodies up to the heavens. They called these birds "dankinis" or "sky angels". This was super cool and resonated with an idea for my fursona because despite the angelic wings, he was never a supernatural character. That, and even though I/he try to be a better person, to be good and fight against bad, truth is I am not a perfect person. I guess I'm an angelic-like person, but that's not the truth.

    Lynx are so elusive they were known in Celtic folklore as the keepers of secrets. I've always liked the idea of being able to just disappear whenever I want to be alone...I'm actually quite good at it as well. I could have picked some other species of feline that fit that description, but I also find the image of a lynx stalking some snowy taiga forest to be a very powerful image; the perfect mix of power and stealth, alone at the edge of the world... Yeah, I can lose myself in that fantasy easily :p
