It must have been so awesome to have a Persian cat at such a young age, I love Persian cats and have had four of them in the past. It is so cute that as a child you built your cats a house and it is fascinating that items from the forties are worth money now. This is an excellent memoir that takes the reader back to another place and time.

    Thank you so much for the review and the nice comments. Times have changed so much since those days. I'm glad I got to live during that time. I enjoy remembering those happy times.

You are good, girl. I mean GOOD. Your writing is enjoyable and humorous and also so well thought out. You have a very creative nature, and I can see it started early in your childhood.
What a thought to make a cat house out of those boxes. How hysterical to think you could get the cat to live inside, even for a moment.
I love your sense of humor, and the last line took me all the way to chuckle. Stripper??? My, my, you are naughty.
My best,
Marie

There was a musical comedy (I never saw it but am familiar with the title) called the 'Best Little Whorehouse in Texas' and ytour title is clearly a take off of that. I was an English war baby and the packaging was always more stimulating than whatever it contained. These days so much is handed on a plate to kids and their creativity only works when it is plugged in and switched on. I made model theatres out of boxes I remember, but we only had three outdoor cats that lived in the boiler house.

I hope this does well in the contest. It deserves to.

    Thank you for reviewing this one. I think they ending up changing the title of that musical here in the states to Best little Cat House in Texas. I wasn't sure the younger generation would know whore house were also called cat houses, but I think most people of FanStory are old enough to know. I never saw the musical either.

    Thank you Chuck. I don't expect to win any contest that goes to the contest committee. I just enter them for the challenge and because there isn't an entrance fee. I'm glad you liked it though.

    I thought it was cute. I feel the same about winning.
    Working on a sequel for the book you have or a revised retake with another publisher. I may be off site for a while.

reply by the author on 13-Jul-2021
    Don't stay away too long. I jusr revived and older story, which I hope you'll read. I've not been the mood to write another chapter in the last few days.

Oh, oh! Your sense of humour is showing. The Best L'il Cat House in the South sounds like a wonderful undertaking. It's good that they randomly used it, so you felt you did something worthwhile. You told the story well and it is a good entry for the contest.

This story, Best Little Cat House in the South, is so interesting and entertaining as you note all the collecting and building that enabled this cat kingdom to exist. I especially like your ending. Cute.

Back in the day before plastic. Plastic was the damnation of the planet I fear. They just keep on making it and it is out of hand already. I remember those days, Beth. Remember
searching for discarded glass soda bottles and returning them to the store for money? Was it 2 cents or 5 cents? I have forgotten. LOL That was the good old days. Nancy:)

    Thanks for the review and comment Nancy. Yes in those day we were delighted to find a bunch of soda bottles to return at 2 cent. They may have finally gone to a nickle when the price went up. There was a time when you could buy a coke for a nickle.

Wonderful, my dear friend. Oh, how I burst out into laughter as I read your adorable story. Never would I have pictured my friend, Beth, as a "stripper" with a "cat house" but I believe it will be difficult to see you any other way now. Just absolutely adorable!

Smiles and chuckles, Carol

I was intrigued by your title and the story kept growing and showing what a creative and artistic young girl you were, but I kept wondering about the "cats." Then you told me! That's so cute. I especially liked learning about how innovative you and your parents were to make the most of everything!

    Thanks, Helen. I'm glad you stuck with my little story until we got to the cats and their house. I enjoyed your comments.
