Those who read Pussweek would be forgiven for thinking that it's written by a huge team of cats. They'd be wrong, but they'd be forgiven. Every single word is written and pawed over by Writer, Journalist & Graphic Designer/Developer Bexy McFly, with the only exception being celebrity interviewees' responses (but not the interview with Princess Ribena in Pussweek Issue One. That was - you guessed it - Bexy).
Bexy started Pussweek as a uni assignment (back around the time dinosaurs roamed the earth). She let it nap for about ten years, then picked it back up as a passion project to help her kitten learn how to cat. Tt quickly became a religion for brutally honest felines. Pussweek has thrived since its debut on the iTunes e-book charts back in 2014, where it went to #1 within 24 hours of its release. Since then, Bexy has single-pawedly transformed her little book into an internationally-distributed printed publication, now in its fifth issue and countless reprint edition, stocked in stores and cat cafes all over the planet. Thousands of cats around the world are calling it 'essential litterbox reading'.
Bexy has worked for over 15 years in the Advertising industry as a designer, copywriter and animator. Pussweek has pulled her away from that life, turning her into a proper business cat, but she still freelances here and there (to make the money to buy the bikkies), designing coding the occasional HTML5 ad animation or writing copy for some of the more quirky brands. You might see her buzzing like a bee around her home city of Sydney, Australia, running her online store, delivering her books, talking to printers & sponsors, interrogating cats, scouting for talent, waiting in line at her second home - the post office - or writing Pussweek while shamelessly inhaling her favourite soy latte at Starbucks, or writing her new column in RSPCA's Biscuit magazine. She can also be found throughout the year at the many cat-related events she attends in the US, UK and Europe.
Bexy works tirelessly for the mental health of cats, and just wants them to have a safe place to discuss and learn more about what's impawtant to them. She's been gifted with a particular set of feline communication skills, able to speak fluent cat thanks to a VERY strange and highly dangerous occurrence in her mid teens (a story for another day), and has been told by countless cats that she just 'gets them'.
