Fat Black Puss



It never ceases to amaze me what people will search for on the internets.  First though, let me digress briefly. There's a point, I promise, and I'll get to it.

If you're a regular reader of my blog (hello to both of you) you're no doubt aware of the three furry babies in my life: Podae, Fatpuss and Grimth. I should write a book about them called The Very Furry Babies. It would sell to Very Little People and their Very Nice Parents, I'm sure.

I love these animals, even though they can be incredibly capricious and frustrating at times. They won't sit on my lap - I know, three cats and not one of them is a lap-sitter, which surely is the primary function of a cat? I should ask for a refund. And they vomit in hard-to-reach places from time to time. And every now and again I get a small, bloodied corpse deposited in the bedroom as a token of love. And they like nothing more than to smooch on me and fur up my clothes in the split-second before I leave the house ... but I take it all in my stride.

It's the price I pay for unconditional love, you see, and I consider it a small one. And after all,they do shower me with the odd burst of affection and caterwauling, Fatpuss especially (the caterwauling that is). Podder is better with affection, and Grimth? He's mainly food-driven. Though he does quite like a scratch on the head in the morning and will close his eyes in ecstasy if you get the spot juuuuuuust riiiiiiiiight.

Ahem, I've become distracted. What was I saying? Oh yes - that I blog about them every now and again, and tell you adoring stories of their latest adventures and quirks. Much as I've just done. See how I did that?

And when I blog about them, I tag each of the blog entries with their names. Podae, Fatpuss and Grimth. Which leads me to the point, after all. Sometimes when reviewing my blog stats I'm intrigued to see how people find me. Often it's through keywords they enter into Google. Vintage tea towels is a favourite, as is Ode to Friday, and oddly, who sang Lazy Sunday Afternoon as well.

But my favourite has got to be the one tag people are most definitely NOT searching for. Not in the context I use it, that's for sure.

Let me be direct. Fat Puss. Fat Pusses. Furry Fat Puss. Fat Black Puss.

Yep, you know what I mean. And I can guarantee that a photo of my lovely furry fat black puss, such as the one at the top of this post, is not what they are after!!!

So this post is in honour of my lovely furry fat black puss, and his clear internet - ahem, attraction. Fatpuss, you're the tops.

I just checked my search terms, and the main ones involve Women's Weekly Children's Birthday Cake books! Glad I blogged about that. ;-)

I think it's hilarious that all those perverts searching for porn are going to get a craft blog!

Liesl (Hoppo Bumpo) said...

That's hilarious. There's definitely something very "Are you being served?" about your pussy post!!

Christina Lowry said...

Oh my, well, um, no, really? People type in Fat Puss?! I'm with Liesl and Curly Pops, so true. Imagine all the other weird and wonderful words you could put on your posts to get even more hits...

:)

Lol! It's horrifying what people type in sometimes - I have red hair, and have blogged occassionally about the prejudice that exists in the UK towards redheads. You would not BELIEVE the things people search for involving the word "redhead". Or maybe you would, actually, given the fat black puss!

Two Bits Patches said...

LOL. Now this may be a dumb question, but how do you find what search terms people use? I know what searches hit my website, but not my blog...

mysterycreature said...

hehe, thats classic, and serves them right! Of course it can backfire, I was searching fro toy horns, and typed in hotters the other day without thinking... on a work computer...

mysterycreature said...

Oh, and I typed in hooters, not hotters!

Cathy (tinniegirl) said...

clare's craftroom said...

Lulu said...

You are very funny!

Tania said...

Wow, are you ever asking for it now! Batten down the hatches, your bloggy world is about to be inundated!

Margaret @ Konstant Kaos said...

Isn't it funny when you take a look at what searching terms lead you to your site! I enjoyed your story, and laughed at the conclusion of it. Out of both of our furries, neither is really a lap cat, they are more of a side cat ... although Ana likes to sleep near our heads, so she could be called a head cat .. would love to meet your furries one day!
