Contents [hide]

Origin of Term編集

The word Furry first came into use in this context in the 1980's, when groups of people who had met and shared interests on Cons and other similar venues started to coalesce over this particular subject.

The term became common after the advent of the Internet, allowing large groups of Furries to communicate with each other.


In Japan, the art is referred to as "Kemono"(ケモノ), but this term is slowely being phased out by the English "furry".
