  • When learning one thing means learning 10+ things.

    If you’re reading this, it means I’ve been successful in my endeavor to launch my own server. Hooray!

  • Brain damage-amage-amage-amage-amage

    Thus far 2022 has been stressful, because I’ve been losing weight non-stop (a problem you think you want until you actually have it happen to you), my electrolyte and other blood levels are everywhere but where they should be, I’m tired all the time (the few times I rely on caffeine via a latte or a […]

  • Three years clean

    Today, January 19th, 2022, is my three years clean date. I won’t go into detail as to where I was on January 19th, 2019, but let’s just say it was the launch of Rock Bottom. I’ll always be in chronic pain, and I’ll always need medication to make the pain tolerable. But thanks to my […]

  • Even a crazy rescue cat lady’s good deeds do not go unpunished.

    My intentions with cat rescue are 100 percent purely to save cats: to provide them with a better life, tailored for each individual cat. For some cats that means TNR. For others, being brought indoors, vetted, and adopted out or sent to a rescue. For still others, euthanasia. It all depends on the cat. But […]

  • Under construction, but still up and running.

    Now that I’ve put together and the meat and potatoes of my blog, I’m going to tackle its layout. I was using a pre-made, but I’m going to install one of WordPress’s own, and then make it my own. So, pardon the incoming mess, because on a good day I’m meticulous and particular; but now […]

  • Where have I been for the last four and a half years?

    With the literal dawning of a new year, it’s time to address the opiate-addicted, shoplifting, felony-convicted, chaotic hot mess of an elephant in the room: what all has been happening in my life since 2017. In June of 2017 we lost our home. The truth is, it wasn’t a sudden thing – though the homelessness […]

  • Happy New Year’s Eve!

    Here in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 2021 is just a few minutes away from being over. I’ve been spending it coding, and I’m staying up only because I offered the local neighborhood free rides home in case anyone is inebriated. It’s my good deed for the day. Good things have been done for us, and besides doing […]

  • 2021: Year in review

    2021 was a pretty slow year, with the most action happening in the summer and fall. COVID-19 is kind of making weeks run together, and I can’t believe we’re going into our third year of it. January: organized my kitchen, celebrated three years clean from opiate abuse. February: discovered 1000-Lb. Sisters. March: burned a decent […]

  • 2021’s top nine Instagram posts

    Unsurprisingly, all but two were cat-related. Then again, the overwhelming majority of my posts are cat-related, so it’s not like I give my friends and followers and random drive-by likers a lot to choose from, eh? Starting from top left and going horizontal: View this post on Instagram A post shared by Jenn Foreacre (@kissmykitty) […]

  • Ex-nay on the ast-lay ost-pay; Draco is sick.

    Scratch (like a cat scratch? Get it? I’m so witty. *insert eyeroll here*) my last post. Draco had two more (at least) seizures between my last post and now. Fortunately, in the world of rescue, TNR, and foster, we all kind of scratch one another’s backs. Alyssa and I are the go-tos for fostering, so […]
