Welcome cat

Since I'm getting a number of different and random(ish) visitors thanks to Caroline's blog widget, I thought I would post something up that may be a little more initially welcoming (unless you hate or are phobic about cats) than a post about panic attacks.















If you want to read about panic attacks, just scroll down a little.

Update: if you did land here via the aforementioned widget, feel free to say hello and what choices got you here.

God that photo is scary!
It's kinda cat does porn.

I got you, again.
Have you paid Stray to increase your hits?

Kate said...

I got you twice in a row, the first time with the panic attack post, then this time with the cat one.
You have obviously taken over from Stray as THE destination blog of the moment.

Lady in red said...

hmmm I read the comments about landing here from black boxes....so guess what....my first go and it brought me here lmao

Calistro said...

Hello! Caroline's widget brought me here. Am enjoying this magic carpet to new blogs. If everyone sticks the widget on their blog and enough people add their url I might just be able to while away a whole working day blog surfing!

Ms Melancholy said...

You are now clearly the blog of choice, lovely Trousers. Better put some more cutesy animals up there, quick pronto.

ps cats give me panic attacks.

B said...

it brought me here too!

trousers said...

I thought the photo was sweet, cas, though if you look again at the cat in question, she has freakishly oversized paws...

No I haven't paid Stray, honest!

Hi kate - yes last night it was Strays, and now so many routes seem to be leading here. Nice to see you :)

Hi lady, well yes, it seems to be happening a lot!


Hi calistro, it's certainly more fun that using the random blog search thing on blogger, is it not? Thanks too for leaving a comment :)

Hi again ms m, if cats give you panic attacks then I've somehow managed to cover all bases!

Too many cute pictures would not be me though - if it carries on like this then more dark and deep thoughts about panic, anxiety and depression and so on..:)

Hi b - Come in and find some space to sit down too :)

Ms Melancholy said...

Oh, yes please trousers....then I shall feel much more at home. Very much looking forward to meeting up with you at Cas's signing, by the way. Will you have your tattoo out so we can recognise you? You'll recognise Stray because she looks just like her little blog picture. I'll be the one standing next to her looking serious.

trousers said...

I do sporadically post on such things ms m, another one will come up sooner or later I'm sure - very possibly sooner, as mentioned...

Yes it'll be good to meet you and stray too. The tattoo shall be discreet - you'll have to look around the room and decide who looks like they might have a tattoo.

spacedlaw said...

Hi there! Got in via Black Box Travel too...
Cute cat. On to read about panic attack...

Leigh said...

Ha! The choice I just left on Caroline's widget was cat or dog. (I'm definitely a cat person.) So it was a bit freaky to come here (my matched mystery blog - opened in another tab before I entered my choices) and find a cat. Yey!

What a beautiful beastie. Name?

Leigh said...

OK slightly scary that the last visitor has the same christian name as me. I had to read the comment twice to make sure I hadn't already been here in an orgy of black box usage and forgotten in the heady thrill of it all!

And in anticipation of getting a string of new visitors I feel I should post something interesting to my blog (when I should be either packing or working!)

trousers said...

Hello spacedlaw! Thanks for landing here :) Depending on the power of the blog widget, I might end up at yours later too (if not, I'll follow the link at some point anyway).

Hi leigh with typewriter, nice bit of synchronicity there. I couldn't possibly divulge the name of that lovely cat and her freakishly oversized paws, I'm afraid. Have to protect her confidentiality as you might well imagine :)

Hello too leigh sans typewriter - another freakish bit of synchronicity! Welcome to you, and anyone else that I might have missed. Whether via the uncanny power of blog widget tourism or via more conventional means, I shall come and visit sooner or later.

Mei Del said...

i am both a cat and dog person - it was soooo hard to choose i tell you - hope to meet you again trousers xx

trousers said...

Thanks mei, and agreed :) Nice to see you x

nmj said...

hey trews, i came here by myself (as i often do), but i need to get a handle on this blog widget, so i can come again! it seemed complicated but that is prob just my sludgy head. i love that cat. is it yours?

trousers said...

Hi nmj, the blog widget won't guarantee that you land here, though a lot of people clearly have :)

The cat - she's fabulous isn't she - lived a couple of doors away from my mother, though has since moved (with her owners). She used to pop by and sit with my mother every so often, and occasionally go upstairs for a nap.

nmj said...

well, i just got here by the flying carpet!

you have a v strange word ver: rorso

Fionnuala said...

You got to me via the widget then I got to you. Great blog by the way. Must get back to writing now, no more widget surfing. F

trousers said...

I think as well, nmj, the more you play it, the more people are likely to land on your blog (meaning, I might have had a few goes from time to time..)

Hi and thanks, fionnuala. Must have a more in-depth look at your blog sometime soon :)

Joseph Devon said...

I'm not really a cat person, so the feline staring at me with its teensy head and giant body is kind of freaking me out, ironically causing a panic attack.

B said...

i should have asked my hubby about the shopping - ftumsch thing! he was explaining it as I was reading what you said on cas's comments. weird.

DJ Kirkby said...

Hello my friend, the very clever widget brought me here...only choice I can remember was malt v/s blend, oh and work from home v/s go out to work.

trousers said...

Hi joseph, and thanks for commenting - if the cat makes you feel panicky then maybe reading about a panic attack will calm you down? :)

b, I'm glad/relieved that someone other than just me remembers the shopping/ftumch thing.

Hi dj, I haven't even seen those choices yet - maybe I'll have to have another go..

DJ Kirkby said...

Oooh hello again :)

trousers said...

*waves back to dj*

Hi mielikki - intriguing name! Glad to see cheese on toast had priority over caviar :)

Lily Sheehan said...

I love Cats but that one isnt as cute as the purino ones. I'm here cuz o' the widget but in reverse. Thanks for the comment :)

trousers said...

Hi lily, and thanks for saying hello. I'm not sure I know the purino cats? Maybe I'll try googling.

jenn said...

My silk or cashmere black box landed me here in return. And some other selections.

B said...

chinese not curry
kibbles not bits
barefoot over shoes

i loves the widget!

Leendaluu said...

Hello...I'm here by the widget...

vanilla, Desperate Housewives and summer got me here ;-)

trousers said...

Hi jenn, b and leendaluu, nice you, and of course those choices would have landed you here!

The good thing is, whoever's sites I don't land on in this fashion, I now have the links to go and explore :)

The wondrous Black Box has finally delivered me to your doorstep. I have seen your comments on others' blogs today (as I have whiled away the work day with the Black Box), but finally got lucky.

Hi!
