This is to clarify the difference between the two
Mascot can be anything human or animal your choice Does not have to look like you or be your same gender You may have as many as you like
Fursona Has to be an animal! Must look some what like you Must be same gender. The animal can be an animal that is most Like you but that's an option. You also can only have one
Hope this helped clear things up between the two you can have on or the other Or both!
