About the book

Meet Tex Mex Rex:
A real cattle herdin’, bean eatin’, cowboy cat.

“His songs could put smiles on fields full of cattle,
And make an old rattlesnake give up her rattle.”

Meet Sugar Lee Snughead:
A hen huggin’, pig pen swillin’, cow charmin’ kitty.

“Her voice called as sweetly as catbirds in June.
She’d quiet whole herds with the hum of a tune.”

So what do two music lovin’ country kitties do?
They seek fame and fortune in the BIG CITY, of course!

But their road to stardom is a little rocky...

This warm tale is about:
listening to your heart
working hard at the things you love to do
taking chances
and, of course,

From the author:

“I originally wrote this cat tale as part of a collection of poems entitled SEVEN WORKING KITTY CITY DITTIES, but it turned out that Tex Mex Rex and Sugar Lee Snughead needed a book all their own. This book is a heartfelt Valentine to all of my favorite things: Cats and dogs, cowboys, New York City and country music.”
