One of my adopted cats, named Fat Louie, a feral I found living alone in the woods, has recently fallen madly in love with a Katrina victim I brought home from New Orleans, named Miss Flower. 

Both of them now love to cuddle on the sofa,

While we watch old Western movies on TV.

A recently viewed movie, High Noon,

Inspired this Western poem by Louie.

They say Fat Louie was the meanest hombre

To ever terrorize the old Wild Wild West

He robbed banks, trains, and even stage coaches

But he was a lonely desperado, losing life’s zest


Miss Flower was a very lovely southern belle

Who hailed from the old town of New Orleans

But after losing everything she had in a storm

She decided to head West to pursue her dreams


As fate would have it so the old Western legend explains

These two lonely souls were drawn together one epic night

Fat Louie had decided to rob the stagecoach she was riding in

But when he saw this very lovely lass his heart filled with delight


As she slowly stepped down from the old coach

Fat Louie was mesmerized by her enchanting eyes

And without even thinking about it, he purred out,

“If you don’t marry me, Ma’am, I’m just gonna die.”


The very shy and lovely Miss Flower gazed back at this outlaw

Quickly deciding he was the most handsome fella she had seen yet

And as the very old legend of Fat Louie and Miss Flower would have it

They were last seen heading off together into a glorious Western sunset

A Cats Prayer

Lead me down all the right paths,
Keep me from fleas, bees, and baths.
Let me in should it storm,
Keep me safe, fed, and warm.
