Emerald's Fur Summit[edit]

Main article: Emerald's Fur Summit

Kabba founded the convention in 2017 as Emerald Fur Con, having earned credibility with the local fandom through running successful events[9][10] and fostering a more open, active and engaged community[2][3].

Kabba, who was aware of the furry convention "dead zone" within the 250-mile (402.3 kilometers) radius of Pensacola[11], intended to launch the project once the local community was energized, hoping to garner their essential support for his fledgling convention. Unlike established conventions, Emerald Fur Con took place in a single day and was self-financed by Kabba who offered it to the public at no cost to them.[4]

After the success of Emerald Fur Con, it was announced that the convention would return in 2018 as a full 3-day convention[12] under the name Emerald's Fur Summit[13]. The logo for Emerald's Fur Summit was created by Brad The Colf.[14]

Kabba Blah Blah[edit]

In June of 2018, Kabba launched the first episode of "Kabba Blah Blah", a YouTube series that analyzes conventional knowledge about aspects of the furry fandom.[5]The show’s intent is to drive conversations within the Furry Fandom community about the topics covered on the show.

The process of producing an episode begins with Kabba picking a topic he considers to be important or meaningful, then researching the topic to determine if there is a story that needs to be told.

The premiere episode tackled the conversation about the price of commission-based art in the furry fandom.[15] The episode was well received and was featured on Furry Amino's front page on July 8, 2018.[16]

The show has featured original artwork by Creative Crystal[17] and original music by Breezier the Otter.[18]
