Puss in Boots by Klimt

The first cat I ever owned was Puss, after Puss in Boots. He looked like this royal cat, captured (on film, not physically) in Brockton.

I look like a dust cloud with a handsome regal face painted by Klimt.
We had Puss when I was four, and I didn't think anything of his name.  Whenever I say it now I feel uncomfortable, due to it's similarity to two uncouth words in the English language.  Can you guess what those two words are?
