I caused a little stir.
10ish, I was a weeb but becoming a furry took an extra year or two. It happened pretty shortly after my household got (dial up) internet. Before then I just sort of considered myself an animal nerd. Had every copy of Zoobooks, could parrot all sorts of animal facts forever (my parents hated that on car rides lol). Once I found the fandom it clicked with my existing interests, so I just kinda went for it!
