The books mention cats but these references are not Ludlow Porch at his best. The cats in this imaginary and lovable south are pretty much cliches. Bad luck black cats, raining cats and dogs cats. Cathead biscuits refer to the size of that southern treat.
But who wants fiction which is all fluffy. Plenty to enjoy with Ludlow Porch without cats, and I miss him.
