Terry Mouse is a furry artist who used to live in Florida, USA. Currently, he now lives in Nevada (having moved as of March 27th, 2018)[1]. He was born on December 19, 1977.

Over the course of several years, Terry's fursona has changed from a mouse to a ferret, to a lime green husky (the latter coming from his insistence that his job at LabCorp was working him "like a dog", and his favorite color being green). He can still be represented as a mouse or a ferret, but these days he prefers the lime green husky, and has changed his identity in many places to Lime Dog (or Lime Doge if he is feeling particularly meme-y).

History[edit]

Terry has been a part of the furry fandom since around 1994, though his background in drawing what he would discover to be "furries" dates back to the age of seven. He discovered the concept of "furry" when perusing AOL with his aunt; as she was showing off the image directories on AOL, Terry noticed a strange folder named "Anthropomorphics", and wanted to know what that was. The first artist Terry got to see work from was none other than Doug Winger.

Upon the discovery of this so-called "furry fandom", Terry was finally relieved that there was a whole group of people on-line that not only shared his particular quirk of drawing more funny animals than anything else, but also appreciated it. Before too long, he was heavily involved in the fandom, though, in recent times (roughly around 2011-2012), things have calmed down significantly for the mouse/ferret/husky.

Despite things having "calmed down" for Terry, this didn't mean that life in general calmed down for him. When he was visiting some of his friends out in Colorado, while playing the game BioShock for the first time ever, he needed to ask one of his friends a question about how to perform a basic function in the game. That question took half an hour to vocalize (starting with the erroneous query of "How do I do the thing to do the thing?") ended up being the first sign that Terry was suffering from a case of Moyamoya, something it turns out he's had from birth. What happened around June 30, 2010 was a breakdown of the disease that finally ended up hitting a high point and destroying his ability to think, improvise, or even just be creative in general. He also lost a lot of his ability to draw (though that's started to come back to him around the year 2012 and going forward, though his drive hasn't been there since around 2008-2009), but what's hitting him the worse is his inability to improvise at this point; he's starting to get moments back, but it's very gradual at this point. So long as he can get his final brain surgery, though, he'll be able to recover once again.

Terry was also a staff member for Megaplex from it's third year ("MP3") to it's seventh year (the last year it was still being held in Jacksonville); for the first two years he was specifically the Scheduling Coordinator, but after issues with MP4, Terry threw in the towel and was transferred into badge design; this lasted until MP7; by MP8, it was decided that others would be allowed to take a crack at badge design, which dissolved Terry's time as staff of a convention. Despite everything, he attended Furry Spring Break and every instance of Megaplex up to MP9 in 2010; since then, he was forced to move back down south with his mom (October 4, 2010) and lived with her until the day she died, and then subsequently moved out to Nevada to live with other friends of his.
