Goats, ankle furs, angoras, etc..

Hi first post ever, I got a question. What are the origins of wearing the ankle furs? What does it mean, someone told me a long time ago it was padding for the bells. I'm not sure I'm a believer of this theory so I just thought I'd ask. Thank you in advance for any input.

They are used to cover your skinny ankles.

What I was taught is that it is meant to represent our fur brothers

Forgive me but your choice of terms made me think of when my "fur babies" wrap themselves around my ankles. There is no dance style that has one seal point Siamese goat and one black cat goat, LOL.

Glad you are a cat person. We are dog and cat people though dogless for a long time.

I have to agree with you on that. However, I know there is some creative dancing done when you are trying to weave your steps over said cats. I used to have a cat who was really bad about weaving between my feet. She finally stopped one day when she tripped me up and I spilled a glass of ice water on her. She didn't speak to me for 3 days.
