Furry Terms and Definitions
Furry (Fur) - A person with an important emotional/spiritual connection with an animal or animals, real, fictional or symbolic.
PLURR - Peace, Love, Unity, Respect, Responsibility
Anthropomorphic - Ascribing human form or attributes to a being or thing not human. With furries, this is commonly giving animals human attributes (the ability to talk or walk on two legs) and a half human/half animal (or anthro) body.
Fursona - A combination of the words "furry" and "persona". A fursona is a representation of oneself in the furry fandom. This character is a sort of alter-ego of oneself combined with one or more species of animal. Fursonas range from "wish fulfillment" characters, where the fursona has all the abilities the person wishes he/she possessed, to ones that are an expression a person's personality (i.e. a playful and fun-loving otter), to fursonas that are nothing more than the person's favorite type of animal.
Anyfur, Everyfur, etc. - Substitution for anyone, everyone, etc. "Everyfur is invited" means all furries are allowed to attend.
