The group was initially started as weekly diner runs by the Umgotts Studios crew, including The Kemeeleon, Mitsu, Amadeus, Lunamor, and their friends, Joe Meyer, Thilus,and the Fur Keep crew (Gushi, Michelle Latta, and others). Other than that, the only furry activity on the island were occasional Eric Kern's furmeets and the annual furry track at I-CON until Nekonaru Letao initiated the Long Island Furs LiveJournal Community, officially organizing the group and having their first meetup at Nekonaru's OMGWTFBBQ in August of 2006. A multitude of meets have followed since, in addition to a companion website (li-furs.org) by Cubbi.
