I presume it's some sort of pet nickname?
It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men. - attributed to Samuel Adams

Over in the Under the Lemon Tree forum (for the webcomic Goblin Hollow) is this thread that asks the same question. But the answer seems to be on the NPC forum (for Tales of the Questor):

I've been looking around on the Web, and found:

Urban Dictionary: flurf
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=flurf
(Embarassing!)

("The word "flurf" came into existence because I'm unable to speak and play [the piano] simultaneously.")
(April 14, 2005: I tried to say "The f sharp is broken", but instead, what came out of my mouth in halting pidgeon English were the words, "My flurf is broke!")

I suspect the Urban Dictionary is a bit more urban than correct.

A "flurf" as I understand it is a fluffy hug. like a skritch or a fuzzle.

From what I've seen, the Urban Dictionary has a higher rate of errors than Wikipedia.

No argument there. But it's not mentioned as a word (as opposed to proper name) in Dictionary.com, Wikipedia, WikiFur, etc. If it were a recognized furry term, I'd have exected to see it at least in WikiFur.

Besides, the UD definition was just to unlikely to pass up mentioning! :ick:
