1.7 Living Accommodations
Nearly half of all furries sampled indicate that they currently reside with their parents (see figure above).[tagcite tags=ff13] Another 30% or so live with a friend or significant other, 15% live alone, and the rest report other accommodations. The high proportion of furries living with their parents is thought to be a product of two factors: (1) furries’ relatively young age and (2) their tendency to attend post-secondary education. Both of these factors may necessitate living with their parents for financial reasons. Indeed, as the figure below demonstrates, when the data for older and younger furries are split up, older furries seem to move away from their parents and into their own homes or to live with a spouse or relationship partner.
