    Just in case anyone is wondering — and how could you not, really? — the young woman in anthropomorphic “fursuit” in the video is, indeed, a self-proclaimed furry. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furry_fandom)

    I asked her why she was wearing her fursuit out, and she responding with “It’s Friday,” which seemed as reasonable an answer as any. She also told me that she was a little surprised that so few people seemed to notice her she was in full-on “fursona.” I told her that it’s Asheville, and after a few years in this town, you learn to tune stuff out.

      The “Furry” community in North Carolina – in Asheville, is actually pretty strong. :) We sometimes have get-togethers and go out for pizza and bowling, all in those suits! It’s a fun time, and let me tell you all the kiddies love seeing all the ‘animal people’!
