A person who identifies as being sexually attracted to drawings of anthropomorphized versions of animals. There are no reports of furries existing until the age of the internet, at which point furry material was able to be shared widely and furry communities could be formed.

Furries are often met with disdain from the internet at large, as they are perceived as being weird. Furry artists will also draw graphic images of children's cartoons featuring animals, which others see as a hostile act of 'ruining the memories of their childhood'.

It is distinct from bestiality, which is the sexual attraction to actual animals.
