Today Feb 19, 2017 FurNation has shut down, like FA when you think of Furry you always think FA and Furnation as both sites has been around for 20 or so years. But today I was when I was checking out Twitter on my phone I saw the following message.
The FurNation website is now offline. There is nothing more to say. It’s been one hell of 20 years of fun.
Wanting to know more I checked out their Fb page
This is LEO Owens Admin of FurNation, at least for the last couple days it’ll be up.
It has been a pleasure spending nearly every day for the passed nearly 6 years being a part of this website. When I first joined the site back in 2011 I NEVER thought I would have become a part of it like I had been. I was at the time too timid to even talk to the staff. I didn’t have a tablet for my digital art and was still writing comics on paper. I had just gotten out of high school. I’ve mad lots of friends, and a few enemies. I will remain to be their friends afterwords. I will share with you all my FA https://www.furaffinity.net/user/xiileoiix/ and my twitter https://twitter.com/LEOxOwens it would mean the world to me that if any who desired to contact me watch and or follow me there. I welcome your messages and would love to hear from you always. This site has 6 of the best years of my life and I’ll never forget this place.
Wanting to give you at least a reason why I messaged the Admin and this is the message I got in return
Yes it is very sad but all good things come to an end eventually
A lot of members have signed up to http://www.furgather.net which is similarly set up as FurNation was 🙂
Yes readers today is a sad day.
I came across that name recently when I was checking out some furry comic books. It seems Omaha The Catdancer is nothing more than furry porn, yes I know there is plenty of furry porn out there. But this copies those erotic images you see on Real Porn sites.
according to Wikifur
“Omaha” the Cat Dancer is an erotic comic strip and later comic book created by artist Reed Waller and writer Kate Worley. Set in fictional Mipple City, Minnesota (derived from “MPLS,” the old postal abbreviation for Minneapolis) in a universe populated by anthropomorphic funny animal characters, the strip is a soap opera focusing on Omaha, a feline exotic dancer, and her lover, Chuck, the son of a business tycoon.
The strip debuted in the funny animal magazine Vootie, and a number of underground comix in the late 1970s and early 1980s. “Omaha” the Cat Dancer became the subject of the eponymous comic book series published from 1984 to 1993 by Kitchen Sink Press; it was relaunched by Fantagraphics Books through 1995. The final chapters of the strip’s storyline were published in Sizzle magazine, beginning in 2006.
Although the last Omaha The Catdancer comic was published back in 2007 it’s site still is up and if your curious it’s site is still up and you can check it Here
