Cassidy Civet, full Cassidy The Civet (born September 17, 1998), is a Canadian-Italian[1] furry writer, musician, fursuiter, and YouTuber who lives in Port Moody, British Columbia, Canada.[2]

Biography[edit]

Cassidy has never lived outside her small city of 33k. Her father served briefly as a one-term city councilor from 2018 to 2022. Cassidy primarily works as a movie extra when not at conventions, as well as odd municipal jobs.

She suffered a mini-stroke, or TIA, on May 1, 2019. This has largely been the reason she has decided to finally release her first album.

Cassidy also has a more general interest in art, particularly drawing and directing. She attended a summer course on animation in 2016 which taught her some things, but mostly put her skills into perspective. She has taken on a new creative role as the director and partial storyboard artist for her upcoming animated music videos, as well as the early beginnings of a 2D animated feature film.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Cassidy Civet found the furry community around 2012. She had long been interested in anthropomorphic cartoons and media, and it was through her short-lived obsession with Sonic the Hedgehog that she found the fandom. Before she knew the fandom existed, however, she had posted pictures of fursuits on Facebook in adoration and fascination.

Cassidy also won the Good Furry Award for 2021 presented by Grubbs Grizzly.[3] She later also appeared on season 2 of Canada's Got Talent.[4] She writes reviews and commentary for Flayrah.[5]

She was a Guest of Honor at Wild Prairie Fur Con in 2023.

SurviFur[edit]

A public fan of the hit CBS show "Survivor", Cassidy began running her own competitions based on the franchise at conventions starting in 2019. Dubbing them SurviFur, and naming them after the cons they've been run at (i.e. SurviFur: Megaplex 2022), this panel has now been run over 15 times (or seasons). The first "season" was run at VancouFur 2019 with a cast of 20 players, and ultimately ended without a winner. The first winner came from Fur-Eh! 2019, the first game capped at 12 players.

Fursona[edit]

Cassidy Civet's fursona choice of a Malayan civet came from the most unusual of sources. While watching Survivor Caramoan, the camera cut briefly to a civet in the jungle. This caught Cassidy's eye and she took a rather low-quality photo of it with her phone. She began showing it to everyone she could find in hopes that someone would know what it was. It wasn't until she asked the internet that she got her answer. She picked her species more than a year after making her first FurAffinity account. The name Cassidy wasn't decided on for another year or so. Another name that was considered was Celeste, but was ultimately rejected after her sister said it was too similar to Princess Celestia from My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic even though it was inspired by a character from Babar.

Convention attendance[edit]

Cassidy attended Fur-Eh! 2017 for the first time, making her debut trip to another Canadian province. She entered and came in third at the Variety Show, with her cover of Keep The Faith by Tamara Gachechiladze. She once again appeared in the Fursuit Parade in Trapa's original civet suit. She also attended Howloween 2017.
She returned as the theater lead for VancouFur 2018, hosting and running the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, as well as the Variety Show. She also performed in the variety show, performing her debut Pop single "Comfort Zone". Cassidy was also asked at the last minute to be the auctioneer for the charity auction for the first time. She returned in the fursuit parade in Trapa's fursuit once again.
Attending Fur-Eh! 2018, she was in the variety show and featured in the first-ever Fur-Eh! Performance Showcase. In the Variety Show, she sang Under the Ladder by Mélovin. She also attended Howloween 2018 as well to round out the convention year.
  • 2019 - She kicked off 2019 by attending Further Confusion 2019, which was her first American con, and first out-of-country con. She performed in FC:Unleashed, the con's variety show, performing the same song as at Fur-Eh! 2018, also not placing. She went to FC primarily to meet a long-time friend from online.
She was asked to return as theater lead for her third consecutive year of staffing VancouFur 2019. However, she became the youth coordinator instead through a series of mix-ups and miscommunications. She ran 4 panels, the most she's ever run at a con to this date.
Upon receiving her first full fursuit on June 10, she made her suit debut at Fur-Eh! 2019, performing in full suit at the variety show performing twice with the songs Chameleon and Replay (placing second), and in the dance competition, where she danced to "Temple" by Baauer featuring M.I.A. and G-DRAGON.
She attended the debut Furvana, performing in the dance competition where she failed to place once again, with an odd single judge/host format.
At Howloween 2019, she judged the dance competition and introduced a unique style of voting involving three judges and one audience vote for a 75/25 split. Despite a broken link, the backup QR code proved successful and this new combined result ultimately lead to a tie that was broken by the judge's vote. Cassidy hopes to bring this new method of voting to more cons in the future.
Deciding last minute, Cassidy made her Midwest FurFest 2019 debut. However, after battling a cold in the days leading up to her appearance, she lost her voice and failed to bring enough business cards to the con. This, coupled with the poor scheduling of putting the variety show at the same time as floor wars, made it the first con she attended with over a thousand people where she failed to get a single Patreon supporter. While she did have fun, on the business side it was a total bust.
  • 2020 - 2020 started with Further Confusion 2020 once more, bringing her suit for the first time. She sang "Greek Fire" in FC: Unleashed with backup dancers Paco Panda and Koidel Coyote but yet again failed to place. She also qualified for the dance competition on her first try, unaware she had made it through the auditions until Nos Hyena told her at the fursuit parade.
Being invited as a musical guest, she made her debut at Texas Furry Fiesta 2020 with her first-ever concert to promote her newly released album Double Take. She was also a judge at the dance competition, which had the now infamous #testicles incident, which became the most hashtagged TFF-related thing that weekend.
Her final con of 2020 was VancouFur 2020. This was the last con before the pandemic struck and canceled all upcoming events. She performed her song Sakura in the talent show, and performed "La Voix" by Malena Ernman in the third annual Cutie Pageant, and got 2nd place. It was also the first time she had to cancel her flagship panel SurviFur due to poor scheduling. She also judged the dance competition and participated in Floor Wars by request to fill out the nonsuited bracket, though she was knocked out in the first round.
She performed her first online concert as part of Confuror 2020 which had canceled its physical con as part of the COVID-19 pandemic. She also judged the dance competition where she coordinated her audience participation vote for the first time fully online.
  • 2021 - Cassidy entered the virtual variety show for Further Confusion 2021, where for the first time she finished in first place for the music video of her song "Sakura". This became her first-ever talent show win at any con and her first top 3 finish at FC after two previous attempts. She also had her first concert of the year on the Sunday of the con, being her first concert at FC.
She also did a digital concert for Fur Squared, for which there was an encore performance due to stream quality issues. This was followed by virtual concerts at online iterations of Blue Ridge Furfare, Furnal Equinox, Texas Furry Fiesta, Fur The More, Confuzzled and Nordic Fuzzcon.
However, against all odds she announced she would be going on a 6 convention tour during late summer 2021, starting with Megaplex 2021 where she performed only her second-ever concert on a convention main stage. As well, she also made a surprise appearance in Pepper Coyote's concert which was ironically called "Alone in Florida", where she was let to sing 2 songs before being joined by Pepper to debut their new collaboration "Raise A Glass" for the first time publicly. A song she herself penned. The song will not be released until ANW 2021.
Immediately after she went to Furrydelphia 2021, where she performed another concert, this time on a smaller scale, as well as doing her signature Transformation Chat panel and her SurviFur game spontaneously in the con's board game room. She also participated in the talent show and dance competition, despite missing the auditions for the latter.
Next up was DenFur 2021 where she did yet another small-scale concert, Transformation Chat, and SurviFur, which unfortunately was scheduled for 10 am, to which she protested and ultimately bailed on, later learning there had been 18 people waiting at the panel room to play. She considers it her biggest regret of the tour. She also participated in the dance competition yet again, opening the show but the wrong version of her song was played.
Fourth was Texas Furry Siesta 2021, another first-time convention but second-time hotel as it was in the same venue as Texas Furry Fiesta 2020. Despite not performing a concert, she still managed to run a season of SurviFur in the prematurely dismantled Game room. It was the second and final season she ran during the tour. There was no dance competition.
Fifth came Tails and Tornadoes 2021, becoming not just her first attendance but her first time in the state of Oklahoma. Despite an unfortunate start on Friday, she came back in full swing and went on to run another tf panel, place 3rd in the Dance Competition (becoming her first ever placement in a dance comp), and be an auctioneer at the charity auction. She also made her second guest appearance in a Pepper Coyote concert where they yet again performed "Raise A Glass".
And the final con stop on her tour was Furvana 2021. As a last hurrah, she judged the dance comp in a suit and helped auctioneer the charity auction once more. There was also a tf panel on the beach for the ten people who could find them there. Once done the con she attempted to cross the border back to Canada without a negative COVID test, was denied, and ended up with a warning and having to spend USD 250 on an accepted rapid test. She finally returned to Canada on September 14.
Far from done with conventions in 2021, she made Biggest Little Fur Con 2021 her next stop. Her first time attending, she made her mark with a concert on the Second Stage where she performed for the full hour in full fursuit for the first time. There was also another performance of "Raise A Glass" with Pepper Coyote during his 18+ Charity concert.
Next came another double feature; Howloween 2021 as a post-Halloween mini-con, where she ran her arguably most engaging iteration of SurviFur to date (which was won by a returning player from the very first infamous season of SurviFur that went unfinished, Sora), ran and hosted the dance competition, and DJed live for the first time on her Windows XP Gateway laptop. And then the next weekend was Anthro Northwest 2021, which was arguably the con she had the least responsibilities at of all year. She and Pepper sang "Raise A Glass" yet again during his concert but that was all she did. She spent most of the weekend suiting and meeting up with friends.
The 10th and final con she attended in 2021 was of course Midwest Fur Fest 2021. Here she did her 7th and final concert of the year, this time in a panel room and not on a stage, but she brought posters to the con to advertise and worked her butt off letting people at this massive con know about the random panel room concert. This ultimately ended with her concert having 88 registered attendees on Sched.[6] There were about a dozen Patreon supporters in attendance.
  • 2022 - Cassidy's first con of 2022 was scheduled to be Further Confusion 2022, which was to be two days after she returned from San Marino/Italy from her Eurovision Song Contest 2022 audition. FC 2022 was unfortunately canceled as what many see as the final canceled con from COVID.
Now officially kicking off 2022 with another tour, although smaller than the previous year's tour, she began with VancouFur 2022, her home con. Returning as staff, she was in charge of the Dance Competition and Talent Show, as well as her concert (immediately following the talent show), SurviFur, and the TF Chat.
Next, she took a greyhound to Seattle from Vancouver, flying to Vegas briefly before heading to Blue Ridge Furfare 2022. It was her first time in either Vegas or North Carolina, and she came out swinging with a concert, a TF meet, and a dance comp performance. She also ran an impromptu game of SurviFur which had it's first ever superfan winner.
Flying from Raleigh to Dallas, the next stop on her tour was Furry Fiesta 2022! She was not asked to return as a dance comp judge and ultimately decided to sit out the comp without even auditioning. She ran her concert, TF meet, and SurviFur, all without a hitch.
The last stop on her trip was up in Detroit for Motor City Fur Con 2022! Her first time at this con, she had the least to do of any con she's been at recently. She didn't even enter the dance comp. This was a rest con for her, and a quiet way to end her tour after 3 weekends of running tf meets, concerts, and SurviFur.
After a two-week break post-tour, she embarked on her next con; Fur Squared 2022! She had much more to do at this con, running a concert, one of the most successful SurviFur seasons so far (crowning the second Superfan), her first joint tf the panel with another tf enthusiast panelist, and the biggest of her events; the dance competition! She brought her audience voting tactics to F2 and the crowd loved it. It was her first time at that con and in Wisconsin as well.
Just a week before she flew out to her first Furry Weekend Atlanta, her televised appearance during Canada's Got Talent premiered.[7] It was brief, and she released a YouTube video with more information on her experience on the show.[8]
Then, it was time for FWA 22! Her first time at the con, or being in Georgia for more than a layover. She put on a panel room concert, SurviFur and her tf meet.
Next was Biggest Little Fur Con 2022 in Reno! She flew into Las Vegas, making the 8-hour scenic drive through gold rush era ghost towns, as well as Tonopah, which was once the home of Stalking Cat. Once in Reno, she did a concert on the Third stage (bumped from the Second stage in 2021 without explanation, this was contested by her and others with accusations of favoritism lobbied at staff), her tf panel, and SurviFur while staying out of the dance comp after failing to make it past auditions in 2021.
Receiving word that she did not secure performances or panels at Anthrocon 2022, she abruptly canceled her trip and attendance. She decided to save her AC debut for another year. Instead, she went on a brief 4th of July weekend trip to Salt Lake City.
In mid-July came the next con; Fur-Eh! 2022! Driving over the Rockies in a 4-7 car convoy on the way over, splitting the trip over 2 days both ways. She ran her concert and SurviFur with ease, also participating in the dance competition and talent show, the latter of which she placed 2nd in for the second year in a row. She performed a cover of Run To The Hills by Klara Hammarstrom.
At last, finally, the 6 con tour.! Starting with Megaplex 2022, Cassidy ran her concert and SurviFur once again, albeit skipping the dance comp again this year. Despite her enjoyment of the con, the move to her birthday weekend in September 2023 puts her attendance in jeopardy.
Second was a long flight from Orlando to Winnipeg for Wild Prairie Fur Con 2022, which had invited her to be GoH for the following year! Becoming the first con to ever lock her in as a GoH, and the first con in Canada to do so. She successfully ran her TF meet, and a scheduling clash with SurviFur kept her out of the dance comp despite the con's best efforts to accommodate her.
Third came DenFur 2022, the flight which involved a layover in Vancouver for an hour. Cassidy came back stronger than ever, running her trinity of SurviFur, TF Meet, and Concert (still not on mainstage). Though she did skip the dance comp this year. After the con, she spent a few days in Georgetown, Colorado with her friend Stoney Skunk.
Fourth was IndyFurCon 2022, a surprise addition to her tour schedule. Originally planning to return to Furrydelphia, discovering she had not been given a single panel or event the Monday after Megaplex 2022 ended, she was unsure how to process that until that same morning, she was contacted by former IFC chair Pandez in regards to a potential GoH role for 2023. Conveniently, Furrydelphia and IFC were the same weekend, so with some easy Southwest flight changes, she redirected her sights onto her debut IFC. While she didn't run any events due to the last-minute nature of her attendance, she did leave a memorable performance out on the dance floor in the dance comp. As expected though she didn't place. Her roommate at this con was the winner of SurviFur: Blue Ridge FurFare. Ultimately IFC would become the second American con to court her for a Guest of Honor role and back out without a contract.
Fifth was her return to Tails and Tornadoes 2022! Rooming with a (now former) Patreon supporter this time, she only ran her SurviFur competition. Due to scheduling mix-ups, her TF Meet was not given a panel slot. She sat out the dance comp despite requests from staff and attendees who remembered her 3rd place finish the year before, as it remains her only dance comp placement she didn't want to tarnish that legacy. She did return as a charity auctioneer for Sunday's charity auction, where the power went out halfway through. She spent the days after the con at an Airbnb near Route 66 and a Sonic Drive-In, in what she said was her favorite stay of the trip.
Lastly comes con #6; Furry Migration 2022! Another debut con for her this tour, she was able to end it with a bang. Running her TF Meet, as well as her most successful concert and SurviFur of the tour and for the latter, of all time! 27 people had to be turned away from SurviFur, as it was only the second time ever the panel has been placed on a Saturday, the demand was overwhelming. No dance comp again for her, but a very fun and well-run con to close out her trip with. It was determined mid-trip as well that she would be taking a pass on making her Confuror debut this year as she did not have the budget or time required.
And finally, the last con was attended in 2022; Howloween 2022. She did not anticipate this to be the last, as she was expecting to attend MFF as well. However, after a complete wipeout of many of the fandom's musicians and panelists from the schedule, she canceled her attendance out of protest. So no 10 cons this year, but Howl was still a smashing success. Running her first open-door room party in a con-sanctioned party block, her weekend was plenty busy. Running the dance comp once again, as well as the first-ever sequel season of SurviFur, capped off with a casual transformation meet.
  • 2023 - Beginning her year with back-to-back con appearances in January, beginning with the action-packed return of Further Confusion 2023. Where Cassidy hosted her trio of events; SurviFur, the TF Meet, and her concert. She also participated in the dance competition and returned to FC: Unleashed after winning the virtual iteration in 2021. Making her way back home, the following weekend was the 14-month return of Anthro Northwest 2023, keeping her on the west coast of the US. Cassidy had all her events rejected from the con, and so spent the weekend mostly chilling with local Seattle friends. She also entered the dance comp.
Then on January 22, she flew from Vancouver to Bologna, Italy, where she would enter Una Voce Per San Marino for the second time. She would spend 40 days in Europe, visiting the aforementioned San Marino, as well as the Netherlands (Amsterdam), England (London and Dover), France (Calais and Paris), Switzerland (Lucerne), and Italy (Bologna, Venice, Florence, Naples, Pompeii, and Rome). After receiving her non-advancement notice from UVPSM, she spent the rest of her trip in Rossano Veneto/Padova with her extended Italian family before flying home on February 28.
With only a day for a turnaround, her March tour began with VancouFur 2023, where she ran all 3 of her usual events to relative normalcy. As a result of the bomb threat however, her concert was reduced from an hour in its own timeslot to a half-hour intermission before the results of the Cutie Pageant were revealed (where she was also a last-minute judge). She also participated in her first VF Dance comp after years of running and judging it in the past, as it was run by Seattle Furs this year.
Opting not to take a break and skip a con weekend, she flew down from Vancouver to St. Louis, Missouri for Gateway FurMeet 2023! Her first time in the city for more than just a layover, she ran all 3 of her usual events at this con. She also participated in the dance comp and her first fur-lesque show, the latter raising $200 for Charity in their inaugural show. She stayed at a hotel near the airport after the con, walking to the nearby bowling alley for a fur meet on the Wednesday night after GFM.
Flying from St. Louis, the next con to come was Furnal Equinox 2023, her debut at the largest furry convention in Canada! Also having rejected all her panels before sending a convincingly forward email to the programming team, the chair stepped in to get her a concert at the very least. On the second stage with very minimal AV/concert capabilities, she made due as best she could and delivered on a full hour of fursuit performance and original music. She would then also go on to perform in full fursuit for the yearly Fursuit Masquerade talent show, where she would win her first-ever competition at a fur con. However, due to her jokes made about the technical support (or lack thereof) her concert received from the con during her show, Cassidy would discover the following morning just minutes before the dance comp final that the AV crew had filed multiple complaints about her, succeeding in getting her removed from the dance comp after she qualified through the auditions. Thankfully she filmed the entire show and plans to post it and a storytime video telling the tale of her first FE to YouTube soon.
Ending her March tour without a bang but a whimper came to the final con; Motor City Furry Con 2023. Another con was that she had rejected all of her events, leaving her with nothing but a dance comp participation to show for her attendance. She mostly spent the weekend with friends and locals, remaining low-key except for the first day, when during opening ceremonies a bomb threat was emailed to the con venue. Upon an hours-long evacuation and police search, she conducted a highly cited radio interview with a local radio station. Despite the positive portrayal of the fandom and well-spoken nature of the exchange, it still divided opinion as to whether she should've stepped up to speak on the unfolding events regarding the incident.[9]
With her next two cons in a row being Canadian, she made her annual return to Fur-Eh! 2023, where she ran her usual trio of events. However, her concert was scheduled at the same time as the fursuit dance competition, thus making her unable to participate. She did manage to sell a record number of CDs at her show despite this though. This season of SurviFur also marked the first-ever returnee winner (the player previously played in Winnipeg at WPFC 2022, where they placed 8th).
The next Canadian con was Wild Prairie Fur Con 2023 about a month later, the very first convention to ask and confirm Cassidy as a "guest of honor"! She ran a record number of panels at this event, from her standard 3 (TF Meet, Concert, and SurviFur) to her first vore meet and a meet about being authentically furry in daily life. She also had her first-ever solo dealers' den table as part of her GOH agreement, as well as her first time DJing twice. SurviFur this con would be the first season to include 3 returning winners playing again amidst 4 returnees. The con would ultimately pass its previous bests for attendance and charity.
Following WPFC 2023, she began her 4-week con tour in America! The first stop was an unfortunate DenFur 2023, where she was immediately targeted by the con's board AEIOU. After receiving a monologue from the board chair about how she wasn't allowed to distribute business cards as they were "advertising something outside of con space" despite being just for furry music promotion, she knew her remaining time was ticking, and she was banned Friday night just before her song in karaoke. She spent the remainder of the con mostly in her hotel room and spent the days after the con in Colorado Springs with a fellow civet.
Up next was Furrydelphia 2023! Making her return after 2 years, she would run SurviFur as an official panel at the con after first running it as a bootleg event in the game room in 2021. She auditioned for the dance competition but failed to make it through prelims. After the con, she took a train to Connecticut in a side quest to meet her lifelong idol and inspiration, Mercer Mayer, and while successful in connecting with his production company, was ultimately unsuccessful in her endeavor to meet him before flying to Tulsa.
Marking the first American con she's done fully for 3 consecutive years, she returned to Tails and Tornadoes for 2023! After some unrelated social media drama, the con was harassed into removing all of Cassidy's panels. This decision would be reversed however as attendees at Con spoke up in her favor, and her SurviFur panel was reinstated on Friday night. This would prove significant as it would become the first season to run with less than the desired 12 players (running with 10 as it was reinstated so last-minute word hadn't spread) as well as crowning the first-ever 2-time winner!
Immediately after TTFC, she was supposed to meet a friend in Seattle but they were delayed at Burning Man and other plans had to be arranged. Once they made it back home on Thursday, it was time for Furvana 2023! Another hat trick of attendance as Cassidy has attended all iterations of the so far only bi-annual con in existence. She ran her TF Meet and SurviFur, the latter of which had one of the most memorable seasons to date despite running on Sunday afternoon against the dance competition.
Ending her year with Howloween 2023, she returned to the con with her tf meet, vore meet, the 28th season of SurviFur, and the debut of her furry "Weakest Link" game show, based on the UK original.
  • 2024 - Kicking off what would end up being her most lowkey con year since before the pandemic, attending her 4th Further Confusion. Running her tf meet, the 29th season of SurviFur, and doing her first concert of the year! Being placed in a 3pm slot on Friday, her concert had to compete against 9 other events either starting or ending. Including a furry music panel run by the only other person performing a concert at FC, and a panel run by her con roommates. She sat out the dance comp, and participated in her 4th consecutive FC:Unleashed with a parody cover of the Eric Saade song "Popular", cheekily called "Popufur".
Her local VancouFur was up next, where she was originally slated to be doing the 30th season of SurviFur, a tf meet, and a concert. However, all her events were cancelled out of caution by VF after some unrelated social media drama lead to the convention receiving threats of violence if her events went on.[10] She attended the event regardless, where locals voiced their displeasure in the con's decision and offered her support.

Music[edit]

Cassidy is a musician who frequently publishes songs in a variety of genres, most specifically songs in her favorite genres of Pop Music, EDM and Adult Contemporary. She has said her least favorite genre is classical or instrumental music because of the personal touches that can be applied to songs with singers and lyrics, though this has been misconstrued into controversy. As a piano player, she arranges and composes her own music, though she'd much rather be the vocal presence on her songs singing the lyrics she wrote. She finally released her debut album on February 29, 2020, under her furry name.

A devoted Eurofan since 2014, Cassidy has been submitting for the Eurovision Song Contest. Submitting annually since 2015, for a rotating series of countries including Norway, San Marino, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Czech Republic, Poland, Switzerland, Macedonia, Ireland, Malta and Moldova. She's continuing to write and submit new music for the contest, working with foreign musicians as well. On May 12, 2020, she became the first ever fursuit in the 60+ year history of Eurovision to be featured in the Eurovision Song Contest, being shown in the first and second ever fan recap for the Semi-Finals since the event had been canceled by the COVID-19 pandemic[11][12][13]. She also auditioned for San Marino, flying from Vancouver to Bologna, Italy with a layover in Paris. This was her first time in Europe. Ultimately the audition was not successful, however, as the microstate chose to pursue a song in Italian instead. She returned to UVPSM in 2023, and once again did not make it through the auditions round. 2024 was her first year not submitting in any capacity since her first watch year in 2014.

Aside from appearing in fursuit at Eurovision, she was one of the hundreds of fans who submitted their voice to be used in the entry from Iceland at the 2021 contest while the use of prerecorded backing vocals was still permitted. Making her the first and so far only furry to have their voice heard at the contest in an official entry.[14]

Her songwriting efforts have begun to pay off as Klace approached her to write a furry Pop album to accompany the release of his third game Komorebi. The first promotional single "Stay The Night" was released on May 12, 2023, on Spotify, and is the first time Cassidy has worked as a songwriter for a song she did not sing or record herself. The album consisted of 8 songs all written by her[15] and was released on July 21. However, in early March 2024, game developer Klace severed ties with Civet and removed said album from all music streaming services.[16]

Controversies[edit]

At Furnal Equinox 2023, Cassidy was cut from the dance competition last minute[17], due to comments[clarify] made by Cassidy earlier in the convention that had been a cause for concern to staff.[18] No comment was made from Furnal Equinox about the incident. Cassidy would later make a video detailing the incidents surrounding her removal.[19]

On April 27, 2023, after previously being announced as the IndyFurCon 2023 Guest of Honor, Cassidy was disinvited by the convention for being GoH. [20][21] She would later make a video detailing the situation.[22]

At Denfur 2023, Cassidy was banned from the convention. According to Cassidy, the AEIOU board accused her of soliciting con attendees for merchandise sales, but failed to actually provide proof for their accusation. [23] Denfur has not made a public statement about the ban. Cassidy would also make a video about this incident as well, which got a surprising 2.5k views in the first 48 hours of it being uploaded.[24]
