Fur-Piled is a gay-themed slice-of-life web comic by Leo Magna, available in nine languages (English, French, Italian, Russian, Polish, German, Portuguese and both Castilian and Latin-American dialects of Spanish).

The web comic was typically updated on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The characters in the comic never made any references to their artistically-depicted species during its run, which may, in a similar arrangement to Circles, render the characters as merely artistically-anthropomorphic representations of fictional human characters.

Characters[edit]

The main plotline of the comic is centered around the lives, trials and romantic endeavors of a group of friends living in Santa Monica, California.

  • Arthur Husky (aka "Husky"), a gay dog who is mated to Saetto
  • Andy Mark, gay fox, mated to a gay tiger named Indigo Blue
  • Chris, a (according to Husky) hetero-flexible panda who rooms with Husky, mated long-distance to Lila until they broke up over the phone over Chris rooming with a gay male.
