  • I don't think that it's any more Furry Confusion for a mouse or any other animal to have a pet dog than it is for a human to have a pet dog. I just think that it's Furry Confusion for any animal to have a member of its own species as a pet.
    • It's usually established in that situation that dogs would be furries too.
      • But aren't the "anthro" ones Dogfaces, while the "non-anthro" ones are just dogs.
  • I don't think that a Talking Animal and mute animal (at least on the same level as or similar level to each other) is Furry Confusion either. Take a look at this picture, featuring Gideon the cat from Pinocchio, Special Agent Dotty from Special Agent Oso, Dopey from Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs, and Phineas from Phineas and Ferb.
    • That's different - Humans naturally can talk. Gideon wasn't mute, but Dopey was.
      • I thought Gideon was mute in the sense of "can't/doesn't use spoken language" that Dopey is mute. Figaro wasn't mute, but that may be a different subject.
  • Nor do I think that a more clothed animal (like a Fully-Dressed Cartoon Animal and a Barefoot Cartoon Animal) and a less clothed (like an Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal) or completely naked animal on the same level as or similar level to each other is Furry Confusion
    • That's never been used.
  • I also don't think that a quadrupedal animal and a bipedal animal of the same species on the same level as or similar level to each other is Furry Confusion either. For example, the scenes in Ratatouille where Remy walks on two legs and Emile walks on all fours. Do you call that Furry Confusion?
    • It depends if said animals can walk bipedally or not.
    • There's hardly any (or at least very little) Furry Confusion among the two-legged and non-bipedal-stance-capable four-legged animals in Word World, Babar and The Adventures of Badou and the original Babar books and TV series, and Madagascar and The Penguins of Madagascar.
      • So this settles not so much on the mere stance and that animals assume (bipedal, quadrupedal, or otherwise) as it does on how the animals are treated in the work. If a two-legged animal and a non-bipedal-stance-capable four-legged animal are treated on par with each other, then there is very little or hardly any Furry Confusion unless the two animals are of the same species.
