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.

Please purrrr, purrray and keep us all in your thoughts from now on. I came back from my trip to find my darling little ginger girl has taken a turn for the road we never want to travel down....

Miss Peach is not eating anymore and drinking very little. Baby food will not even tempt her. I put down my suitcase, cuddled her in my tearful arms and she gave me headbunks...

I drew her a warm bath to clean her matted furs and she didn't even protest with her little meowz like before.

We snuggled together in front of the fireplace all evening and I wanted to bring her to my bed, but she didn't want to move. I got my pillow and a blanket and lay down next to her on the floor to keep her company until four...then I came back in again at nine to do the same. SO many nights we shared my bed as she purrrrred comfort to me while she lay in the crook of my arms under the down comforter. I just had to lay down with her this time to return the comfort.

This morning she tried to jump up on the counter....and for the first time she fell back down, being to weak to do what came so easy just weeks ago.....I am just heartbroken knowing what the journey down this road will hold for us in the next precious moments of time...

Please think of us...I love you all so...

Miss Peach and her sad mommy and Lapdaddy

Peach drank lots of water from her fountain and is curled up asleep infront of the fireplace on her fuzzy blue blanket now. When she ran in from the kitchen, I heard the water slushing in her belly...oh dear me...I am crying buckets. Thank you for being with me during this...you can only imagine how much I love and need you all right now. Karla

LZ said...

Oh Miss Peach! We are so sad to hear you are not doing well. Maybe now that your mom is back you will start to eat? Please please get better sweet friend!


Unknown said...

Miss Peach, this makes me very sad. It is time for you to eat something. I know it is hard, but please eat if you can. I love you Miss Peach. Please get better!

Anonymous said...

Oh my precious sister -- I am purring and praying and purring and praying with all my heart and strength -- I can imagine how worried your sweet Mom and Lapdaddy must be -- please, sweetheart, try to eat something -- try to drink -- and lie close in your Mom's and Dad's laps and stay snug. Could you go to the vet and get some fluids -- perhaps that might help? And here's another tip from Mom -- perhaps if your Mommy gently heats your baby food in the microwave to make it smell more strongly, you might find it more enticing.

I love you so much, dear heart, and please, please, please get better, my sweet little ginger sister.

A heart full of love and purrs and prayers from your adoring sister,


Daisy said...

Oh Miss Peach, please stay strong! This is very, very upsetting. Try your very hardest to eat something, Miss Peach, please. Pixie and I are linking paws and sending you many, many, many strong purrs. I am so very worried about you, sweet friend.

Dorydoo said...

Oh, no!! Miss Peachy... please, please, please eat! Here's another tip from our Momma -- if you have some syringes, you could try gently giving sweet Peachy some fluids -- water, and baby food. Just to get a little in her to build her strength. Please know how much all us Ballicai and our beans love you, and we are purring and praying with all our might.

Love and cuddles from Dorydoo.

Brainball said...

Precious Miss Peach, my little ginger sister, I am so sorry to hear this. All of us Ballicai are teleporting over to snuggle with you and keep you warm -- snuggle into my floof and you will stay very warm. And I'll be purring my deepest rumbly purrs to help strengthen you and to encourage you to eat and drink -- we love you very much, and our hearts are full of prayers and full of hope that you will rally and feel better again.

Love and floofy cuddles and rumbly purrs from your big brother Brainball.

Gaius said...

Awww Miss Peach, this is Gaius the Cat's Mom-Bean. You and you family are in our thoughts. Keep strong. When the kitties we had when I was growing up would not eat, we used doll baby bottles and eye droppers to get nutrients into our precious babies. Pedialyte makes a non-flavored beverage which is sooo nice for helping Miss Peach rehydrate and put electrolytes back in the system.
Sometimes a little hand feeding helps get the appetite moving again :) Please get better, loads of love coming your way. *hugs and snuggles*

KC and the Giggleman Kitties said...

Oh, dear Miss Peach, we are sending you purrs and prayers and huggs and headbumpies and lots of love and lovepaws.
And also for your sweet Mommie who must feel terrible.
There's lots of good advice about feeding here, remember last year when KC almost died after her ladygardenectomy, we had to syringe feed her baby food or Hills A/D, which is very nourishing.
We love you and will light a candle for you tonight.
Love from Mommie ML, KC & Missy Blue Eyes as well as Momma Dinah and her Six Mites.

Team Tabby said...
