An anthropomorphic vixen, a typical furry character

The *furry fandom* is a subculture interested in fictional anthropomorphic
animal characters with human personalities and characteristics.^[1]
Examples of anthropomorphic attributes include exhibiting human
intelligence and facial expressions, the ability to speak, walk on two
legs, and wear clothes. Furry fandom is also used to refer to the community
of people who gather on the Internet and at conventions.^[2]

*History*

According to fandom historian Fred Patten, the concept of /furry/
originated at a science fiction convention in 1980,^[3] when a character
drawing from Steve Gallacci’s /Albedo Anthropomorphics/ started a
discussion of anthropomorphic characters in science fiction novels. This
led to the formation of a discussion group that met at science fiction and
comics conventions.

The specific term /furry fandom/ was being used in fanzines as early as
1983, and had become the standard name for the genre by the mid-1990s, when
it was defined as "the organized appreciation and dissemination of art and
prose regarding 'Furries', or fictional mammalian anthropomorphic
characters."^[4] However, fans consider the origins of furry fandom to be
much earlier, with fictional works such as /Kimba, The White Lion/ released
in 1965, Richard Adams' novel /Watership Down/, published in 1972 (and its
1978 film adaptation), as well as Disney's /Robin Hood/ as oft-cited
examples.^[3] To
