So you're interested in furry avatars, but you have only a handful of Lindens on you? It used to be that if this happened to you, you were just plain out of luck, or had to make do with one of the older furry avatars made early in Second Life's history, such as the starter ringtail that was one of the options for newcomers on day one in 2006. Then came a much better choice. Wingless Emoto made his lines of avatars free and available to Second Life's public. Bixyl Shuftan wrote about them in 2009 in Second Life Newspaper. Six years later, the avatars are still around.
