Welcome to the COZY COTTAGE. This is the furever home of the memory of Miss Peach, our 18 year old Devon Rex angel kitty. I am Miss Hunny Bunny, she asked me to pour you a cuppa catmint tea as you read our old fashion mewsings about this and that. Please come by often...one lump or two? Now our precious Hunny Bunny is also an angel cat...please let me be your hostess at the cozy cottage...my name is Miss Hope.

Remember...only in our tomorrows will we realize what we had in our yesterdays.

~A Proverb Meme~

I was tagged by the new meme going around by my very cool new furrrends over at MOSAIC CATS!! Write your own proverb! A proverb is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated, which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of catkind.
You can read their gr8 proverbs below...mine follows after theirs:) I have always loved "Gather ye rosebuds" by Robert Herrick, even if it is over 400 years old.

...the very first one that came to our (Willie & Bianca's) minds is:

There are only twenty-four hours in a nap.

We asked Sadie for her contribution, and one of the things you probably don't know about her is that she is very spiritual. She wanted to share her favorite parable:

Morris 5:37,38 "No one puts new clean litter into dirty old litter boxes, or else the new litter will touch the poo poo parts, and it will be stinky, and the clean litter will be skanky. But new litter must be put into clean litter boxes, and both are good. No cat having scratched new litter immediately desires old, for he says, ‘The new is better.’ "

~~Miss Peach's Garden Wisdom~~

Gather ye Catmint while ye may,

the time is right for drying.

For this same Catmint here today,

tomorrow will be steamrolled flat

by a herd of bulldozer cats!
I tag PIXIE and Baby Lucy furr and my handsome mancat ALICAT to do the Proverb Meme. Post the definition and the proverb of your tagger in your post:))

Miss Peach, I like your proverb! Pixie is working on hers, so she will be ready to post it in a couple of days. She had to help me with my Fashion tips for Friday! Pixie can be fashionable, too.

ps: Your mosaic is pretty. I love the colors.

We LoVe your proverb, Miss Peach!
And we really LoVe your mystical mosaic stone! Is it a stepping stone for cats only, or a door stop for the litter box room? Or a mice squasher? No. Too pretty for mice blood and guts to get on.
Isn't it fun how you got to combine both special creations into one special post?
We LoVe it when stuff works out good like that!
Thanks for being such a wonderful new fur friend and for sharing your beautiful creations with all of us.
W, B & S
