|Feral! guests of honour|
Feral! 2007 (also referred to as Feral! X) is a furry convention that was held from Monday, August 27th to Friday, August 31st at Camp Arowhon in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada. The 2007 edition marked Feral!'s tenth anniversary.
Unofficial attendance was approximately 80 people, a steep decline from the previous year primarily attributed to the scheduling of the event through the full week.

Clan participation, first introduced in the 2005 edition, became an optional activity, freeing campers up to opt into clan challenges as desired.
Pawnee (male wolf created by Ferris, sometimes spelled Pawnie) made his debut as a full-time Feral! mascot along with two other co-mascots: Ruger (a male deer, created by Gideon) and Weeko (a female porcupine, created by Patches) also appeared regularly throughout Feral! literature.
The Feral! 2007 Survival Guide's cover featured a number of furs - including all three mascots and some of the con staff - on the front steps of Camp Arowhon's main lodge. Feral! founder P.Pardus offered words of support in a foreword to the conbook, while fellow founder Terry Wessner contributed a retrospective entitled "Like Herding Cats". The conbook also reflected back on the previous ten years of Feral!, featuring art, maps, and factoids from each year of its existence. Italian furry artist Scale's work "Under The Moon" is featured on the back cover for the 2008 preview.
15 cabins participated in the traditional cabin skits on the convention's final night - however, the "Snog Lodge", housing the three Guests of Honour, received the plaudits for the best skit.
This year was the first year for the Feral Scavenger Hunt.
