Hi, my names Shane and I've just signed up to Perthfurs after being interested for sometime now.

I'm 27, soon to be 28, and work shift work. But mostly swap for afternoons/nights. I have always been interested in anthropomorphic animals as far as I can remember (I think..). I didn't realize there was a fandom though until I met a very friendly guy who was a furry and he showed me a few pictures and explained a bit about the fandom that made me interested in pursuing to join. Sadly I lost touch with him just after I decided to chase it up with him (Very recently managed to get back in contact with him through my good friend).

Then a few years ago I found one of my good friends was a furry and he reignited my interest to join the fandom. I asked a few questions and did a little bit of research, but I have been until now, too afraid to join Perthfurs and create an account. I don't know why, particularly after hearing how friendly the community is! So...Here I am.. Finally... Hi! :)

I haven't gone too far into thinking up a fursona as yet. I am keen on creating one though! And I am pretty sure I'm interested in having a wolf as mine. I just don't really know where or how to begin, let alone attempt to draw anything (I'm terrible at drawing things).

Some things that interest me besides work (Yes, I do actually love and have an interest in my job) are transport (mostly historic, but new also), photography and a bit of history. Also interested in board games (favorite game is Axis and Allies), but I have no one to play with really.. I do also do volunteer work with an electric tramway here in Perth, with some of my free time.

I think I've probably rambled enough now and hopefully not put anyone to sleep!

I am looking forward to becoming involved in the fandom and making new friends. Now that the hard part of joining and typing this intro has been done :D


And I just realized I haven't filled out my profile yet! Ooops. (Was going to do it before typing this intro..) Better do that now...

      Thank you Luna, I'm hoping to go along to the furry big day out on the 2nd of June, but I am currently rostered to work the morning shift. Just wondering though if I need to say that I plan to come along or if I just turn up?
