What is a furry?

A furry is an animal with human qualities and behaviors. They possess more animal characteristics than human (claws, ears, tail, snout, etc.) and are mainly covered in fur and have an unnatural skin color.

What is a kemonomimi?

A kemonomimi is essentially a human with minor animal qualities (e.g. ears, tail) that may also sometimes possess animal-like behaviors such as purring, growling, etc.

What's the difference?

The main difference between the two is the human:animal ratio. Kemonomimis are more human than animal, with minor animal characteristics such as ears and a tail. Furry are more animal than human, with minor human mannerisms like walking on two legs (though not all furries do this)

i see a lot of furries saying kemonomimis are furries which i feel is untrue mainly because kemonomimis are more human than furry, only really having ears or tail that can often be removed.
