Happy #NationalFriedChickenDay

July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day. If you spent your Independence Day weekend eating barbeque, some fried chicken might be a nice break for you.

Did you know that crushed up sugary breakfast cereal makes a yummy coating for fried chicken? A bar in Baldwin, NY that is no longer there used to make Cap’n Crunch fried chicken, served with honey mustard dipping sauce, and it was soooo good. I’ve tried it at home using all kinds of cereals and it is a real palate pleaser here at The Resister House.

The Lil’ Resisters are suffering from summer colds today and I’m up to my ears in ever-growing puppies, so I don’t think I’ll be frying my own chicken today, but maybe when I go to the store to get the kids stuff to make them feel better I’ll pick some up – cuz chicken has magical feel better properties anyway, even (or especially) when fried.

Do you like fried chicken? Do you make your own, or do you have a favorite fryer of chicken that you go to? How do you like your fried chicken? What do you like to have with it? I like cornbread or biscuits ‘n’ gravy with mine, and a lil’ salad so I can pretend to care about a “healthy diet”. Mmmm mmmm mmmm.

Bellah and Pumpkin

Pumpkin Kitten is an only child again after we lost little Telly, but she is still a very happy little thing what with the having her two loving biological cat parents always nearby and all, but Pumpkin is such a busy fuzzball that even two one-year-old kitties can’t keep up with her, so she has buddied up with momma dog Bellah whose puppies are now nearly as big as herself and not cuddly for her (like Pumpkin is) anymore.

Pumpkin likes to bite Bellah’s tail:

Bellah’s ice-blue eyes glow red with love for little Pumpkin:

They are so sweet together:

I hope this bit of sweetness and love has made you smile.

Is This Thing On?

I have been having problems with this site for months now but have been too busy with puppies, kittens, and kids to get on an actual computer to deal with it until now. I noticed that this blog seems to vanish from teh interwebz for hours or days at a time for no apparent reason and that my sharing buttons vanish even when the blog does not. This, after having lost five years of my database earlier this year.

What’s going on? I am not sure. If I were paranoid, I might suspect something nefarious due to my having poked a few hornet’s nests over the years, but since I am not nearly as active as I used to be and haven’t poked at anything meaniepants for a while I think there is probably just a glitch somewhere in my files so I will have to go digging around in them and hope not to screw more stuff up while I do. Wish me luck with that last bit, please!

If I don’t end up blowing up the place (again), I’m hoping to do some design changes too that might make the place look and function better. So, “please pardon our dust” and if you are reading this and my comments thingy is working, I’d love to hear from you. Thank you for your patience.

Heartbreaking Update

Thank you to everyone who prayed for Telly. I brought him home last night and stayed up around the clock for his feedings every two hours and to administer the vitamin the vet had given us, and the kitty family pitched in with nursing and cleaning him and for a while today he looked like he was coming around, but then he started to fade after his 3:30 pm feeding today and he died in my hands a few minutes before what would have been his 5:30 feeding. We are all devastated by the loss, he was such a special little guy! Momma Sky is upset, losing her second kitten even though she had adopted Telly, Daddy Slatey is hiding, but baby Pumpkin kissed her little brother goodbye and is trying her best to use her cuteness to wrong smiles through our tears. Apologies for typos, I can’t really see what I’m writing and I am not going to proofread this. Thank you again for the prayers and for the help some of you sent that made it easier for me to get the kitten formula we needed. We actually had to supply it to the veterinarian’s office while Telly was there because it isn’t something they keep on hand. I am sorry that I could not provide a happier update. Sweet little Telly will be forever missed and never forgotten. I gotta go hug my kids and surviving pets some more now. May the good Lord welcome our Telly into His loving arms.

Please Pray For Baby Telly!

A few weeks ago, we adopted a day old abandoned feral kitten that my husband had found in a perilous situation and we named him Telly.

Telly was adopted by cat parents Sky & Slatey and their kitten Pumpkin. Sky’s willingness to nurse Telly is the reason why he is alive. Slatey and Pumpkin also help to clean him and cuddle him so momma Sky can take breaks.

IMG_20160520_223615

Things were going well, Telly was growing and starting to do adorable kitten things, until the night before last when he apparently took a fall after I accidentally fell asleep while Sky was nursing him on my bed – I usually put them in the bathroom at bedtime so they are all together and out of mischief. The next day he was out of it but still nursing and I hoped he’d recover but things deteriorated rapidly overnight and when I brought him to the vet this morning he seemed barely alive at all. His temperature was very low and he was incredibly weak. We LOVE little Telly and are devastated to see him in trouble.

We have had to hospitalize baby Telly the kitten. He has gotten IV fluids, meds, and a feeding tube. They suspect he may have neurological damage so even if we do everything we can he might not make it, but we know that Telly is tenacious and tough so we are going to do everything that we can to save his precious life. I believe in the power of prayer and I believe in the goodness in the hearts of all of you, so I think your prayers could really help our poor baby Telly to pull through. Please pray for him! He really is a sweet little thing and we all love him more than words can express. Please, please, pray for our tiny Telly kitten. Thank you.

The New Baby

Three weeks ago, a newborn baby arrived at my home in desperate need of love and tender care. Hubby found a day old kitten hanging by its neck, all tangled up in some frayed industrial fencing. My husband said it took a lot of time and careful effort to free the tiny kitten from its death trap and that he kept the now freed kitten near where he found him for hours but the kitten’s mother never came back for him – she probably figured the little fella was a goner. So Hubby brought the orphaned infant kitteh home to me, of course.

The tiny kitty wouldn’t take kitten formula from an eye dropper or small bottle, but our momma cat Sky was still nursing her two month old kitten Pumpkin, so we put the baby with her and she adopted it. Daddy kitty Slatey adopted it as well! We named the kitten Telly and he was about the same size as Sky’s kitten CC was when CC passed away. Pumpkin loves her new sibling even though she sometimes plays with him as if he were a mouse (he IS mouse sized) and she cuddles him at nap time.

Here are some pictures!

Comments

After my site’s database imploded and I had to start all over again, I had not re-installed the Disqus comment system that I was using and just left the blog with the WordPress default comment system in its place. Today I put Disqus back, because I prefer it, but I don’t have the patience to figure out how to import the comments left at pre-existing blog posts into it, so apologies if you commented recently and cannot find it now.

Readership dropped severely when people learned that I do not hate Donald Trump the way so many other right wing bloggers do (I’m OK with that; something similar happened in 2012 when I didn’t join the Rick Perry fan club), but some of the people who still come around have said that they weren’t crazy about the WP default comment system, and I agree with them. I hope that having Disqus here works out OK for the few of you dear people who still bother with me. You know I love you!

Puppy & Kitty Families of the Resistance – Today’s Pictures

Here are the puppy & kitty families during the one quiet moment I enjoyed today – I only got two good shots before critters & kids woke up, but I hope you like them!

IMG_20160329_073629_kindlephoto-365683644

Clockwise from the top that’s baby Big Moose, Daddy Oreo, little Breezy, Boscoe, and Momma Bellah.

Below are Sky and her surviving baby Pumpkin, who is growing fast. Pumpkin opened her (or his, we don’t know yet) eyes yesterday and is already climbing around in the box on my bed where Sky insists I keep them:

IMG_20160329_074238_kindlephoto-365220567

That’s it for now, as all the young here are in need of my attention. Please say a prayer for little Breezy, he doesn’t give up and we’re working hard to help him, but he has a long way to go. Thanks!
