What drew me in, wasn't the people, unfortunately, as they are pretty awesome. Not even the fursuits. It was the simple question 'what's it like to be a furry?'
I found out. And I really liked it.
What drew you into the furry fandom?

I was going to mess with this particular person because i saw they were a fur and were in Brisbane, tried to annoy them but in the end became friends with them.
Eventually i became one..

I've always had an attraction to anthros (animal characters) from as far back my memory goes. Most animal toons would at least catch my attention but kangaroos in particular enchanted me. The mascott for the 1982 Commonwealth Games was a toon kangaroo (unimaginatively) named Matilda who appeared in short animations between shows on the ABC. I was in love with her.
I might have become good at art if my father hadn't discouraged me, pressuring me to devote my time to more "practical" persuits such as computer programming (and what a complete waste of my life *that* was 8-| ). Oddly enough I would have expected my art skill to improve after I moved out of home but instead I found it easier to write.
Through webcomic forums I learned about the furry fandom. Initially I participated on an American forum before deciding I would be better off socialising with local furries and soon I found Furstralia in 2006. Since then I've been to nearly every Furjam, and last year I was finally able to attend Midfur, now called Confurgence.
I'll be in the fandom for life!

Again though, I'd never heard of furries until 2013 and I'm ashamed to admit my first thought on hearing the word and wikipedia-ing it was "ugh". That was about March or April of that year. By July of that year I'd met and talked to furries online and decided to be a furry and by September of the same I had my fursona. Simple as that.

Out of curiosity I searched it up. Was a bad idea.
After doing some 'research' here and there I came across the general idea of furries and how it's like a form of art etc.
I thought it was very interesting so I checked out some forums to see what furries do.
It reminded me of all the cartoons I watched in my earlier years. So much nostalgia ;-; Drew me in just like that
Somehow got obsessed with it a few days later.
