hi ilu :>
One time my mom came home from work and told me about how she served a table and one of them was a furry. He wasn't dressed up or anything, but he was drawing anthros. She chatted with him for a bit and it dawned on her that I must be one, too XD She knew about furries before that, though, just hadn't thought about it. She's also well aware of Cosplaying and such. It just seems so weird that there are people whose parents haven't discovered these things yet!! Do they like.. not have internet?
Furry isn't that easy to stumble across if you're not browsing internet forums or actively looking for it.
