I don’t know how deeply the average blogger watches the stats that WordPress gives you. I follow them in a general way myself, keeping an eye on what pages are looked at, what images are clicked. Every once in a while I would see a picture from an old post be clicked, or the same old post get a hit.
This morning I looked at it a bit more closely and saw that this post has been getting a continual drizzle of hits ever since it was posted. It has crawled up the rankings slowly. Well I found out why – it is because the post comes up for the search ‘shaved tuxedo cat’ and the picture of Gus shaved from a lion cut in 2010 is the #1 image for that search (on the search program I was using, anyway).
I’m not having hairless pictures on the internet is the kind of fame he was looking for, but it is something.
Calla was upstairs on the stump cat tree. I started to tease her with the ‘cat o three and a half tails’ that came with some toy. There used to be four full leather strips, but Julius overdid it when playing with it, first biting the strip in half in about 20 seconds, and then getting my fingers with a pawful of claws since the stick is very short.
The top of this stump is lumpy carpet that the cats seem to find pretty comfortable. Calla likes it since it has a window view and is out of Gus’ reach these days.
