A group of Syrian refugees was welcomed into Vancouver on March 5 with open arms—and paws. The refugees were staying at the same hotel where an annual furry convention called VancouFur (see what they did there?) was taking place. It's unclear what the adults thought about the humans dressed in animal costumes, but the kids couldn't get enough of it.

For the uninitiated, "furries" are people who dress up as anthropomorphic animal characters (meaning they have human personalities) as a hobby.
