Furry fiction is an as yet unofficial term used to identify the genre of literature that focuses on talking and anthropomorphic animals. Also used for any piece of fictional literature that would be of interest to the furry community at large. Furry fiction is widely regarded as an anomaly among fictional genres due to its ability to cross into any other genre or style, simply by replacing human characters with animal characters. Otherwise it has none of the rules and boundaries that normally accompany a genre classification.
Erotic furry fiction is often, but not exclusively, identified as Yiffy.
Classic examples of furry fiction include Felix Salten's Bambi, George Orwell's Animal Farm, Richard Adam's Watership Down, Richard Bach's Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Tad Williams' Tailchaser's Song and Akif Pirinçci's Felidae.

 Notable sources
- SoFurry is a repository for thousands of stories, covering an astonishing array of genres and subject matter. Formerly known as Yiffstar, a name that implied that it was primarily for Yiffy stories, it was renamed in part to emphasize that it also encompasses works of a non-erotic cast.
- FurRag is a site dedicated to writers of furry fiction and intended as both a repository and a writing workshop. Users are strongly encouraged to review their peers' work and leave constructive criticism to help them become better writers. Acting as a complementary site to SoFurry, FurRag accepts works intended for all age ranges. Stories of erotic nature are accepted but aren't the site's main focus.
- Mia's Index of Anthro Stories is a vast index of furry stories maintained by Miavir. Last updated in 2003, the site has fallen into disrepair.
- The Raccoon's Bookshelf, which serves as both a small-time press as well as an online repository.
