The Origins of OwO What's This?

always fluffy
I think the exact origin is unclear, as some Furries have been using the emoticon and similar phrases on FA and DeviantArt for some time. It only gained widespread use after people made parodies of Furries like this:

Well, but Furries, being used to made fun of, weren't offended but just went with it, and then the meme was born.

Hehe, and I'm glad that we don't take ourselves too seriously, either.

I think it's mainly just from furry roleplayers.
I remember back when I was on DA in 2013, plus on a Sonic wiki, I saw a LOT of people who roleplayed writing faces like "owo", plus always writing "[blank] nuzzles his chest fur >w>" and stuff.
So I'm guessing it came form people starting to mock that.

The best is when someone tries to make fun of a fandom and, instead of being insulted and offended, that fandom embraces the joke.
That kind of thing is rather enjoyable.
