My eldest cat, Buddy,

Always perches on my lap,

Whenever I write;

And he, like me, loves Western tales.


He even decided to write one,

Being inspired by AD’s own

Rufuz, the Dog.


So I present to you,

Buddy’s First Western Story:



- Showdown in Kittyville -




I guess it was along about sunset

When a stranger showed up in town

He was a real mean lookin hombre

Who was wearin one nasty ass frown


“Listen up now, everyone calls me Fat Louie;

Are you the yellow bellied law in these here parts?

Well, even if you are, you best get the hell outa my way,

Because right here on Main Street, I aim to poop and fart.”


“Now just hang on a minute, stranger,

Sheriff Buddy is what folks call me;

And you best mind your manners, son;

Littering Main Street ain’t exactly civility.”


Well it was just about that very time

Miss Kitty and her gals came strollin by

Fat Louie spun clear around in his tracks

He definitely had two womanizing cat eyes


“Evening, Sheriff Buddy!

And who’s this new very handsome Big Fellow?

Why dontcha come back to my business establishment,

The Catnip Saloon, for a drink, to make ya more mellow?”


“Well, Miss Kitty;

Don’t mind if I do!

I guess I can wait,

On my fart and my poo.”


And as the lovely Miss Kitty and her felines led Fat Louie away

Sheriff Buddy caught the loving gleam in gorgeous Miss Kitty’s eyes

She was very sweet on the old sheriff - who had the fastest paws in town

And even though Fat Louie didn’t know it – she had saved his big fat hide



Miss Kitty had not forsaken her darling

She knew he could have taken Fat Louie any time

But she didn’t want the brave sheriff to lose his appetite

He’d had a pretty rough day - fighting canine outlaw crime



- The End


©2006, Buddy, the Cat



A shameful way to promote my Western novel, I know.

But both Buddy and my spouse made me do it.

In Gold River Canyon, Buddy takes on the very challenging role

Of the Main Character’s Horse.

And, Rebecca, of course, plays an Apache Maiden.

You are one talented, funny dude. Yet your poetry is intelligent. I love this "mark twainish" stuff (great title too!) But you have so much stuff, and I'm coming to it late, I'm overwhelmed. (so far have only read your poems.) Does your Amazon book have your best poetry in it? I'm tracking you now, but want to buy a book of yours -- my eyes get so sick of computer screens! I'll be reading!

Rufuz and Buddy aren't going to have a poop and fart fight, are they? That would have to clear out Main Street really quickly. This was a lot of fun.

Oh goody... reminds me of the good old days of Piddles and Co. Like the upbeat tempo and mood of this, Ed, so hope it is set to continue to get all our big guns swingin again. But what is it about you and The Turner... both got baby shots for Biogs?? Is this serious regression and dimentia settin in?? You know Turner has given us all up for Lent, don't you?? Expect him to return with a Dog Collar at Easter, so cats, bunnies and small chicks beware... Hoorah, hoorah for whipKrackin in Kittyville! :)) LOL Kolt45 Kate xx

Hey, my dogs totally agree with Rufuz. They also went into howling shivers of nervous fear when they saw the picture of the cats with guns. (gasp!)

They won't sleep for a week now.

Fun story Ed, enjoyed it very much!!

Shameful or not, I smiled the whole way through. I'll be forwarding this to my friend, Iva, who has two cats, Ms. Kitty and CeCe, who she calls "heifers" when they get into trouble. She refers to their little sparring matches as the "heifer play of the week." Thanks for the grins, Ed. ~~Nordette

An excellent write that would make even (cat hater) Rufez proud. This was fun to read this morning, who cares if it was done to promote your book, that is what we do here, promote ourselves. Cute picture too, Ed.
Take care,

Good luck with your book Gold River Canyon, if this is a snippet, you are on a gold seam of a winner.
And the picture is excellent

Hey dogs are not criminals...we don't use stealth to attack prey, like cats do...Rufuz

Whatever way you can promote your book, is the best way to do so, and who told you you were even the least bit handsome, as I got the looks in the family and you got the brains...ED
