Today I’m writing about something a little different, a little left of centre.  And it’s not really about pet health.  If you like cats, and/or you possess a sense of humour, please stay for the ride.

Through some magical alignment of the planets, the interwebz has brought me into contact with an amazing writer by the name of Bexy McFly.  She thought I might be interested in checking out her new magazine, Pussweek, and she was not wrong.  Below is a review of sorts I’ve compiled after sitting down for a read, but spoiler alert

I loved every page.

What Is PUSSWEEK? I Hear You Ask

This cat-tastic dream of Bexy’s has been ten years in the making, and WOW, just WOW.  First thing’s first: a disclaimer.

I am not a cat.

This means I am in no way qualified to pass judgement on this superb mag for pussycats.  But since I like to live on the edge and break all the rules, here I am, passing judgement nonetheless.

Pussweek

Pussweek is an online (oh please let it be available in print one day) magazine, by cats for cats.  It covers important feline issues, such as litter choices, sleep and scratching post selection, as well as kitty horoscopes and fabulous prizes like rancid fish heads!

I mean, I personally don’t think there is enough information out there about the big issues like catnip addiction* and the horrible impact it can have on your nine lives.  “Show Us Your Nip” gives one courageous cat’s account of what it’s like to rise from the depths of addiction.

*not a real thing, in case you were starting to freak out!

What Did I LOVE About Pussweek?

Firstly, the magazine is dedicated to the memory of Bexy’s cat, Noob.  So beautiful!  Pussweek is a labour of love, and the hours and hours and weeks and months and years and sweat and tears that have gone into it have made it something really special.

As if that wasn’t enough, there are many more reasons to love this mag.  It’s funny.  It’s really, really funny.  I’m not even exaggerating a little bit when I say I laughed on every page.  Even, wait no, especially, on the ‘advertisements’.  One of my faves is

Don’t become a victim of leaf attacks. Raise awareness. Raise a paw.”

But obviously you have to see the accompanying photo for that to make the slightest bit of sense.

There is also some deep wisdom from a cat called Fred:

“Poo. Crap. Nuggets. Whiz. Wee.  However you say it, we all do it.”

Amen to that, my feline friend.

The third thing I really love about Pussweek is how beautiful it is!  It’s absolutely seamless, artistic, and a pleasure to just look at (which is awesome, because I’m pretty sure most cats can’t read).

I’m suspect this may be the best magazine EVER written for cats, by cats.

What Did I HATE About Pussweek

Hate?? You’ve cat to be kitten me!

Seriously, there was nothing to even dislike a little bit.  I genuinely enjoyed the whole thing, you know, but I like cats and things that are funny.  If you have an aversion to one or both of these things, you may not much care for it.  But what are you doing here?

    I didn’t realise that Bexy McFly was the brains behind the operation. She’s very funny so that’s a good endorsement for Pussweek Magazine.
