Beatrice Bright is for animal rights--
She's waiting for Animal Day to arrive.
And though you see her
In her new fox fur,
The fox that she wears is still alive.
-- "Warmhearted" by Shel Silverstein

Basically when someone is wearing one or more fur-bearing animals like a fur.

This also nicely averts Fur and Loathing (unless the animals are enslaved to do this).

A Sub-Trope of Pretty in Mink.

A Sister Trope to It's Fake Fur, It's Fine (in averting the implications of real fur), Feather Boa Constrictor (wearing a snake similarly).
