“Ask Papabear” is an advice column for furries written by a furry. If you’ve ever read “Dear Abby” or Ann Landers’ columns, then you’ve got a good idea what “Ask Papabear” is about.Write ol’ Papabear to get some fresh perspective about issues in your life from a greymuzzle who’s dealt with just about everything in his life at one time or another.
The purpose of this column is to give furries a safe place to express themselves about some of the worries and problems they might have. You can do so anonymously here by filling out the form on this page and giving yourself a pseudonym. That way, when Papabear posts his response you will know who wrote the original letter, but no one else will, unlike when people post on a
furry site or Facebook.
Letters and replies that are judged to be the most useful to the furry community will be posted first. Not all letters will be published, though that does not in any way mean your problems are less important than other people’s! If you wish to hear from Papabear, whether or not your letter is published, please provide an email address (which will never be posted in this column and will remain confidential).
Hopefully, our dialogues here will not only help you but also other furries who have experienced similar problems in their lives. So pull up a chair, sit with Papabear and have a chat, or sit on my lap if you like! You’ll get a hug and a sympathetic fuzzy ear to talk to every time.
Opinions and advice expressed in the “Ask Papabear” column are not necessarily those of the Furry News Network, its staff, sponsors, or advertisers. Papabear is not a trained therapist, physician, or social worker, and the author of “Ask Papabear” will refer readers to licensed professionals in cases where such recommendations seem in order.
