Fur was the name for the body hair of non-Human mammals.

One example of a creature with fur was the Tarcassian razor beast, which was a winged, furry animal noted for the spines on its wings and its loping way of locomotion. When she was a child, Guinan had an imaginary one as a pet. In her mind it had dark brown fur, gold eyes, and enormous wings that let it fly so fast no one but her could see it. (TNG: "Imaginary Friend")
