In keeping with the theme, just to tell you, I am a European Pine Marten. I feel that this is a fursona that really fits me. Having being interested in Celtic culture, I wanted to find a creature that was native to Ireland…but something unique. I didn’t just want to pick any creature on earth, stick him in Ireland and say he’s Irish. I looked at a website that listed native Irish animals…saw marten, and thought “AHA”. Now I’ve heard of marten in a furry story before, but I always envisioned them as a type of fox. But after looking at this and doing research on them, I realized that they are actually a Mustelid (weasel family). My furname was coincidental as I managed to find 2 Irish names that put together sound like “Murphy’s Law”…something which I’ve dealt with in 30 years or so. Because there’s so little info on them (other than basic wikipedia and a few videos), I’ve had to create my own sounds and behavior patterns for them. Stereotypes: As for my own family group, ferrets and otters are cute and playful (yet most furs who are ferrets/otters tend to actually be that way). Dragons are haughty and fierce, coyotes are scavengers, but again, these are stereotypes and I’ve learned not to go by them. BTW, actually did end up telling my parents AND posting my being a fur on Facebook. So far, so good. Thanks for a wonderful show. Keep it up! Looking forward to the next episode.:) Add a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
