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.

Tomorrows just a day away...as Annie would say...
I got to wear my birthday corsage a day early!
Good Pawkeeping seal of approval! Don't I look pretty up against the nice fabric?
This morning I opened a small package that arrived late yesterday afternoon. It had a return address ending in Tyler, so I assumed it was a shower gift from Tyler the cat because I was expecting one from him! I have been opening many little packages for a few weeks now because I am collecting all of the shower gifts to send to Kimo & Sabi's new blurpy babybean. So I really didn't expect what happened next. I found this beautiful blue card inside and it was FOR ME!
Inside was a handwritten message that said, "We wanted you to have your own GIZZY QUILT!" Do you remember what I wishes for on the first day of Catmas? A GIZZY QUILT in a fir tree! Do you believe that dreams can come true? I now have my very own pretty Victorian colored Gizzy quilt! Mommy was just speechless as I was meow less over this gesture of kindness...Lapdaddy just shook his head in disbelief. Tonight mommy put the Gizzy over my favorite sleepy spot and I have not come down off of it since. I am dreaming about my wonderful benefactor and why he chose me I can not understand. So many other kitties need warm blankies more than I do. I am sometimes rough with my blankets and do some very unladylike things to them. Not with my Gizzy! I promise... Tomorrow I will be 15 years old and this is the most wonderful gift I can imagine. You can see just how much I LOVE my Gizzy in the video below. It is even more pretty than anything mommy has in the cottage:) There is no greater love than to do something nice for another who does not expect it. This beautiful gift was given to me by the kind heart of JUNIOR and his mommy Rhonda! I am so happy, ever so happy that you did this for me. I am also very humbled by this and feel the need to pay it forward with a random act of kindness of my own...I will ponder this idea more as I dream on my pretty Gizzy. God Bless you for your kindness. I also want to thank Millie's mommy for making me this pretty Gizzy quilt and turning the past month into an adventure of anticipation. I think I might need my smelling salts before I faint...


Millie said...

Mom and I are -so happy- you like your Gizzy quilt! We didn't even know it was your birthday, so how neat is that? Have fun, enjoy the Gizzy, you look fabulous!

NinjaCat said...

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

What a beautiful quilt. We saw it being made on Millie's blog, but never made the connection for your birthday.
And you look fantastic, Miss Peach. More beautiful than ever. We are looking forward to your party tomorrow.

Love and Purrs, Missy

Mickey said...

Good Morning Sunshine!!
What a beautiful gift you have received! The colors and pattern are so suited to you:) I can see how happy you are and that makes me happy!
To be celebrating your birthday on a cruise ship is the neatest idea. I look forward to anotherwonderful Tea Party because I know you do them best!!!!
Hugs & Kisses,Moonshine

Junior said...

Meowm and I are so excited that you got your quilt in time for your purrthday. We honestly didn't plan it that way but we are glad it worked out that way! Maybe Millie and her Mom remembered and planned for it to get to you around that time.

We got it for you just because you are wonderful Miss Peach! It doesn't matter if the unladylike things happen on it.....sometimes our bodies just let us down.

We think if you want to pay it forward just do something for some kitties in a shelter or rescue. Give them a bag of food or something like that. Those beans that run shelters and rescues can always use a little help.

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Oh we saw this on Millie's blog and we guessed it would be for you! Junior and his mom are SO special. We've been friends with them since way before blogging and they are just the sweetest. I can tell you're enjoying gorgeous lady!
