Fussy bitch billboard a hit with owners

Essex County Standard: Fussy bitch billboard a hit with owners Fussy bitch billboard a hit with owners

Meet the “fussy bitch” who has been causing a bit of a stir among A12 drivers.

The Basset Hound, nicknamed Betty, is the star of a cheeky ad campaign for Marks Tey Discount Pet Foods in Coggeshall Road, which advises drivers on the A12 to visit them for help with their pets’ diets.

An advert on the other side of the board, which featured a fat cat, has been censored by the family run business just in case it caused any offence.

Pictures of the eye-catching billboard on the southbound carriage near Kelvedon have been shared across Facebook.

Manager Dan Atkins said: “We never set out to offend anyone, it is just a little bit of a laugh and I think people have taken it that way."

How has this been allowed on the a12 a road famous for its accidents. It is rather distracting and should not be allowed on such a road.

What did the cat one on the other side say that had to be censored then? I can only think it must have been something about **** but that can't be it surely?

You tell me, you clicked on it. So did quite a lot of others judging by the 'Most Read' list.

News is whatever people want to read. Don't hate the player, hate the game.

Could it perhaps be that Bhudeeka is just an ‘incy wincy teeny weeny’ bit biased against anything supportive of poor old 'Felis Silvestris Catus'?

Judging from some of her previous quotes one might be forgiven for tending towards such a point of view.

For example - Bhudeeka said:

25 Jan 12. ‘I adore animals except cats.’

05 Jun 13. ‘Shoot the cat horrible creatures always causing harm’.

30 Aug 13. 'Bring a cat to me - any cat I will nueture it!’
