Mainstreaming Furry…

April 26, 2010

– – New York’s Parks Department has their first official furry mascot,  the very alluring Pearl the Squirrel! A furry also known as a “Parkie,”  Pearl even has her own bio…she’s an urban park ranger by day, and enjoys riding her bike through the city parks.  Acorns are a food fave, and she enjoys making them into whistles as well…not surprisingly, green is her favorite color…this is an ecologically-minded squirrel, furolks.

Although developed for New York City Parks,  Pearl was created by a cartoonist who works for Disney and hails from Salt Lake City.  Appearing in both fursuited and cartoon images, Pearl may help introduce New Yorkers to the wide wonderful world of furry!
