Ask Papa Bear is truly a wonderful site where furs can write in and get help.
One fur wrote in part recently:
I’m cursed with autism and I just can’t take it: the sensory overload, the harder time learning, the fact I will never be understood properly or understand others. It feels painful. I find myself on the ground begging for it all to end, frequently, but I know I can’t fix anything. I just wish there was a clear way out.
It does say in part: In a manner similar to human-animal bonds, people with ASD who interact in the furry fandom have had similar positive results.
Overall the article is helpful. I do know several people within the fandom with autism and how they have grown because of the furry fandom makes me so proud to be a furry.
Yes folks this really happened
VANCOUVER — A wee bear cub was apprehended at the Canada-U.S. border this week after trying to cross with “no travel documents,” officials said.
The real story is a sad one, this female bear cub was hungry looking for food after it’s mother was killed.
