Cooler Weather May Be On The Way.

Maybe Cooler Weather Is On The Way

August 29, 2010

The weather in our area has been changing slightly. We recently had highs of 97, 98, and 99. The last few days we had weather in the lower nineties. Every degree counts when you live in a mobile home.

I would like to move in my mother's house next door to us. It is vacant, but needs some repairs. We were about to move in it once, but a tropical storm knocked a large tree limb on the breaker box, and electric line , and tore the box off the outside wall.

Our cat Gray Fox did not want any dry cat food, or any canned food. He wants chicken. We ran out of it. Joann had to drive to the grocery store in a town called Independence, about four miles away from us.

The weather was cooler. Joann came back with eight pounds of raw chicken, French bread, hot chocolate instant powder mix for Becky, and a few other items. Soda pop was on sale so Joann bought a few of them.

I did not waste any time. While Joann made sandwiches, I cut the fat off of the eight pounds of chicken and cut it all in smaller pieces.

I placed four good sized pieces in our handy microwaveable large glass flat bowl, covered it with a heavy plate and microwaved the chicken for fifteen minutes.

Gray Fox stood on the floor like a sentinel , a little military soldier waiting for the sound of a bugle or chow horn.

Joann spoke to Fox, and said, "I love you with all my heart . I drove to the store when it was raining to buy you're chicken you little stinker ."

Fox turned his head to look at Joann as if to say, " Well ! How about serving some. I'm hungry."

All the other cats were lying down after having ate either their dry cat food , or their can food.

When the microwave finished cooking the food , Fox knew his chicken was coming, but it was hot so I left it in a bowl, and cooled it off with cold running water.

By speeding up the cooling process I was able to break up his chicken very easily. Simply run cold water over it, and break it off the bones, and allow the chicken to sit in cold water about a minute. It will begin cooling quickly.

His divider dish was ready. I broke chunks up , and placed them in his plate, and handed the plate to Joann. Joann did the honors of serving Fox. She would enjoy all the accolades like rubs ,and cuddles from him.

Fox chowed down good on his chicken. He looked quickly at all the chunks trying to decide which ones were the best pieces while they were nice, and tender. No seasoning is put in his chicken. He likes the down to earth flavor of poultry.

In no time at all he cleaned his plate. I added a little more. Fox usually comes back for seconds, and when he has enough to eat, he quietly goes to sleep next to his plate in his standing position.

Because of Gray Foxes career in Hub Pages as our cat with the most photographs, he must always be kept in his prime photogenic appearance.The special benefits of chicken help to maintain a coat on him that shines. However we need to provide him with more vitamins from regular cat food so we have to make sure he eats some of it as well.

Becky laughs at the cats. She likes them all. She likes to watch then run threw the house knocking stuff down. They can be destructive, but things usually can be picked up.

A lot of safety precautions are always met in our home. We make sure our cats do not get into things that can hurt them.

When I feel better I must start working in our yard again. The grass is overwhelming. There are some weeds the riding lawn mower cannot cut.
