It looks like a lot of us like them for more than one reason. I like animals, cartoon animals are great fun to draw, and they can be used to handle issues in human society otherwise quite awkward to attempt. They are just plain cute, too.

Furries envelop a lot of role-playing for my work. You see, I am a counselor, by and large, and find it easier to those I help if they can disassociate the closeness of the issues, that they need to deal with, to a degree. I do in-home healthcare, and find that when I treat a person who is dying of cancer to a role-playing experience with their cat, getting them to image themselves as their cat who is devotely loving on them, it helps them see that there will always be someone (or something) there to accept them, even as they are wasting away from an incurable illness.

Also, I am a very spiritual person who delves into the animistic nature of the soul. I have found that more and more of the pre-christian religions taught to model one's life from the way the animals around them did, for this would attune one to nature and the workings of undercurrents of energy that humans normally can't decypher without outside aid. This lead to associating strongly with one type of animal or another, thus one gained "totem" animals that bore similarities to the individual doing the research. I find myself constantly researching animals all around the globe, finding what traits they hold in similarity to myself.

Also, I am an artist, in all aspects that the word implies. I love to draw animals, not necissarily cartoons, or even upright walking furs, but animals in general; I find they hold a more elegant shape to draw than the angles and gangliness of the human form. I love to write animal-type stories, placing human qualities and projections into the "thoughts" of the animal I'm writing the perspective of. And roleplaying games can really get the creative juices flowing for a new tale of star-crossed lovers... think of Romeo as a dog, and Juliette as a cat, and you'll fast see what I mean. }:=*)

There are a lot of reasons I really life furries, and animals in rl, too. These are just the most prevalent in the mind, right now.
