    Hello everyone

    Hey guys. My name is Luke. I'm 19 from the USA and I'm into performing arts! I've been kind of dodging the label of furry for while, but I've finally decided to embrace it and I'm very excited to see what this brings! I'm very interested in fursonas and meeting other people, but I could use some...

    Hii! New to the furry fandom, trying to make new friends c:

    As the title suggest, actually I've always had this premade judgement about the furry community, that furries are mainly into porn and such But i was proven wrong! Why did i join, you ask? well, i love animals, and i so happened to love rats so much that i made a fursona. She originally was...

    Hi, I'm new here.

    Ok, so I recently signed up for FA and I don't really know much about furries and our culture. My fursona is pretty undeveloped. So far, I'm just a Neko with a habit to game all the time. I could really use some help navigating my way. What tips would you give to a new furry like me?

    Hello! :D I am a new fur I guess... Anyways I heard this was a great place to come and get to know the fandom better as well as make friends with other furries! I’m currently in the process of making a husky fursona so I’m super excited about that! After that I’m gonna try and get my first...

    Just found the fandom!

    Hello! After many years of internet use and drawing, I've finally figured out those animal things I like to draw are called "furries". For better or for worse this is where it's led me. All I've done in terms of a fursona is do the quick sketch of a shark head that you can see as my avatar. I...

    Hi! I'm new and I have a few questions if you don't mind answering?

    Hi! My name is Jouji and I'm new to the furry community! I've been looking into this for a while and just never joined, but now I finally have. I was wondering about a few things if anyone doesn't mind answering. For one, is there anything considered taboo? Or is there anything I shouldn't do...

    New to the fandom.

    Haii, I'm Mason and I'm just honestly new to the fandom all together. It's something that I've been before but never thought much about, but I've just recently (Very recent) decided I wanted to commit to it. I've been reading up on other websites about your fursona and such, and I've realized...

    Lifestyle, none fur versus fur.

    So, I am pretty new to actually being involved in the fur community aside from just sitting on the side lines. So, I wanted to ask a few things about suiting to help me better understand the community. Taboo's: What are the no no's when suited up. Aside from the common sense one's. What are the...

    Hi from a new fur.

    Hello every one, even though I have watched the fur community from the side lines for many years, I never really had a chance to try to get into suiting up or anything. If anything I guess you could say I have just sort of admired. But, I have decided to suit up for Dragon Con for next year. And...

    First FA post Critique/Should I try making commissions ?

    Huzzah ! Howdy everyone ! It is my first post here and I'm completely new to FA... But oh well... I am a pixel artist who mainly uses MS Paint and GIMP. I recently had a lot of fun doing pixel art portraits (though it took me almost half a week for my first furry portrait). So I wondered...

    I'm a bit new to all of this

    My name is Jaeger Ojanen, and this is hello to anyone reading. My therapist says I should put more effort into getting back into society, so this is an attempt. I've been home for a few months, after two tours in Iraq and I'm glad to have my feet back on home soil. My skills mainly are in...

    How do I tell my parents I'm a furry?

    My parents have been getting very nosy lately, seeing how I've just joined the furry community a few months ago. I'm 15 years old and still live with my parents, of course, and I'm really nervous of how they'll react. My parents already know that I'm Transgender and they literally said that...

    Hybrid Fursona?

    Hi, I'm relatively new to the fandom and I've been trying to find my fursona, but I'm having a little trouble. I was wondering what others thought about hybrids? Are they ok? Are people who feel their fursona is a hybrid any less of a furry? I was also hoping for a little advice on finding my...
