I saw this on the UKFur forum, and thought that it could be fun/informative!
Ever seen or met a person who do the smallest of things that make you think 'If they went to a furmeet/met some furries/went to a con, they would love it more than they think'? This is the place to put those little tidbits that go through your head when you see that person on the other side of the road and you think: 'You might be a furry...'

To get the ball rolling:
You might be a furry if... you're an adult with an impressive collection of plushies.
You might be a furry if... your absolute favourite character in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series is the Unseen University's Librarian.
(This is me, the orang-utan is the best character, closely followed by Binky, Death's horse!)

You might be a furry if you respond to your fursona's name as readily as your given name.
You might be a furry if you've eaten food out of the trash and were proud of it. *sheepily raises paw*
You might be a furry if you spend more on commissions than you do food.

You might be a furry if... you go to a football match only for the mascots.
You might be a furry if... you and your family are anthropomorphic cats in your dreams.

You might be a furry if you sleep with plushies in bed after 18.
You might be a furry if all main characters in the games you play are anthro's.
You might be a furry too if you harbour the dream of moving to Zootopia (or any similar city).

You might be a furry if you're jealous of the animal-themed clothes of your kids.
You might be a furry if your washing machine is more entertaining than your TV.

@Coffee: I'd consider Angua to be just as anthro as the Librarian, maybe Gaspode too. I'm just not that fond of apes or the UU characters in general :) My favorite character is hard to say, but it would probably be Tiffany or Susan. (For the people that don't know DW: Susan Sto Helit is Death's granddaughter, who has inherited his powers even though neither of her parents actually had a family relation to Death.)

You might be a furry if... you start to anthropomorphise colleagues, give them 'sonas and backstories.
(Or I might get really bored at College)

@Tayi - Yes! Or Greebo, I'd forgotten about Greebo. Personally I prefer the City Watch and the Moist von Lipwig novels over UU

You might be a furry if you try to eat grass or try to hunt animals on TV.

You might be a furry if... you think the Beast is more attractive than the prince at the end of the movie.
You might be a furry if... you call your hands/feet paws.
You might be a furry if... your favourite novels growing up were Redwall, Fantastic Mister Fox, Narnia, and Watership Down.
You might be a furry if... those are still your favourite books!

You might be a furry if you watch the Beast and the Beautiful just for the Beast.
You might be a furry if you watch Ratatouille just for the rats.
You might be a furry if you watch the Famous Five series just for the dog.
You might be a furry if... Should I continue?

You might be a furry if... you growl at the squirrels in the grounds.
You might be a furry if... you can howl so convincingly that your friend's husky joins in.

@D_Rainbow12346: yes, yes you should!

@Douglas I live in a country that doesn't do thanksgiving, but yet I now need a copy of this book!

You might be a furry if... you buy Jack Wolfskin brand clothing just for the logo

You might be a furry if... you're trying to get an art book of your favourite furry comic.
You might be a furry if... your favourite game, movie, comic and story all contain anthropomorphic animals.
You might be a furry if... you bought a cat toy for personal use and not for your cat (Uhh, not like I did that or something...)

Ok then, here I go...
You might be a furry if you watch Despicable Me just because of Gru's pet.
You might be a furry if you watch the Muppets just because Kermit is a frog.
You might be a furry if you watch the Asterix series just becuse of Idéfix.
You might be a furry if you watch Night at the Museum just because of the dinosaur skeleton.
Ok, Ok, Technically it's not an animal, but still...
... and I can go on like this for a while...

You might be a furry if... you own a collar but not a dog.

@D_Rainbow12346 is Idéfix the dog?

You might be a furry if... you wear a collar for practical reasons or just as a fashion accessory.

@Coffee: yes, Idéfix is Obelix' dog. I also wouldn't consider Greebo furry, but I don't know the reason you have for it. (Even when he got turned into a human, he didn't have much more than a cat's consciousness, which I personally consider the minimum anthro trait.)

You might be a furry if... You have an overwhelming urge to chase squirrels.
@Tayi, I wouldn't call Green a furry character, in the same way that Binky isn't, but they are the kind of characters in Terry's work that would appeal to furries.
We call Idéfix Dogmatix in English which I like as it's kind of a clever work around to make a pun in English B both Dog and dogmatic.

You might be furry if... You read Tintin just for Snowy/Milou.

I see your answer is already in place.

You might be a furry if you read forums for furs but never participate.
And you're a liar if you try to hide it from your parents!
Ok, it's out of context but you get it.
