Few things amuse me more than furries' shorthand for different animals. I tried to collect the most common ones I've seen used.
Feel free to use these for avatars!

You forgot the Wah and Bun and Skwirl! :v

I think it's "Sqrl" but w'chever. I still despise the stereotype either way <.<"

Ah, I suppose with a lot of these, there are "regional" variations. I mean, I've heard them referred to as drgns and birbs and zards, heheh. :3

Wah and bun are really common. And I totally dont understand etymology of wah=red panda.

Because when you see how adorable they are, you go "WAH!" :D

According to Scientific American, it's onomatopoeia from its vocalization, as well as the original describer's name for it (he didn't get naming rights because his paper on them was delayed 6 years so wasn't the first published) http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/thoughtful-animal/7-things-you-didne28099t-know-about-red-pandas/
