- This article is about the English Midlands furry group. For the Australian convention, see MiDFur.
A MidFur is a furry from the English Midlands. The Midfurs' group is normally regarded as smaller than the LondonFurs or NorthernFurs groups.
Informal gatherings have taken place between MidFurs for several years. More meets started across the Midlands to cater for the growing number of attending furs. According to the UK Fur forum, in the first six months of 2014, furmeets have been held in Birmingham, Lincoln, Milton Keynes, Nottingham, Peterborough, Stafford and Worcester.
Other informal and irregular meets take place across the region from time to time. These include Brumcon, a house party organized by Rizzorat and Rallicat.

- The Coffee Meets were first organized by Rallicat in February 2009. Attendees used to meet for drinks in Birmingham New Street, the city’s largest railway station. However due to the station’s redevelopment, the venue was moved to its current location.[clarify] The meets are an informal gathering and have no set organizer, furs will meet at this time and place by tradition.
