MISS PEACH'S COZY COTTAGE

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.

QUIETLY I WENT INTO THAT GENTLE NIGHT...


I will miss your happy face my beloved friend Caesar...


You have left to prepare a place for us...


You were the bravest Mancat I ever met!
Living a quiet life with those you love...

With GREAT courage in the face of trials...


Each colorful day,
you brightened it even more!
A friend to all...
Full of adventure when your days were new...
with your beloved Princess as kittens you two!
Always a splendid mancat,
gazed out across your world.
Thank you for the pleasure we had knowing you were in our lives...
Your big shadow remains never to be filled, like the void in our heavy hearts...

Don’t say, We have come now to the end. White shores are calling.

You and I will meet again. And you’ll be here in my arms, just sleeping.
What can you see,on the horizon? Why do the white gulls call? Across the sea, a pale moon rises. The ships have come, to carry you home.

Dear Miss Peach,

This is a great tribute to Caesar.
Although I am sad, very sad, I still save my tears, because I know Caesar wouldn't want seeing me cry.

Let's hope the day we meet him in the future, and we could all stay with him, snuggle with him, and play with him.

Caesar is my best, my sweetest tuxie buddy...

Purr,
Adan

What a beautiful tribute.

Even though it is sad to see him pass, at least he passed with his family and sister, rather than in some other fashion.

We can all be grateful for that.

Oh, precious sister, what a beautiful and touching tribute to Caesar, celebrating his wonderful life. Because he was so very loved, he will be so very missed... he has touched so many and brought so much love and happiness into this world. My heart goes out to his family and to lovely Prinnie, his adored sister.

A heart full of love to you, dear heart -- thank you for being you. And warm purrs and my snuggliest sister snuggles.

Oh Miss Peach dat was very lovely. I am sad that Caesar died, but so pleased that he got to die in his bed with his lovely sister beside him and his beans sleeping peacefully.

What a big hole he will leave in his famlies heart, but we are all richer for having met him.

Thank you for such an awesome post.

Oh and as my official Maid in Waiting I'z wanted you to be d'first kitty to know that Mummy's checked my tummy dis morning and has noticed that I'z started pinking up already even though I'z hiding d'fact well with my tummy fluffs! :) Dis mean in about 6 week I'z going to have a litter of sweet ickle baby Abyssinian kittens... :) Oh and I'z got a special website now - d'link is at d'top of my blogy on d'right hand side! :)

I'll let d'other kitties know about all dis good news tomorrow... :)

Mickey said...

Good Morning Dearest,
It is so very sad to have lost Caesar :( Our hearts ar very heavy.Mom says this is one of the sad things about growing old, seeing our friends go and leaving us behind.
That is a very lovely retrospective of Caesar's life.We can take comfort in knowing that he lived well, was loved and happy and passed quietly in his sleep.
All of this does not take away the fact that we miss him so much and our eyes are still leaky.
Yes, he has gone to prepare the way for us. In the meantime,we must remember the goodness of his life,and the happiness he gave.
I am honored to have known him and will take comfort in my memories of that wonderful Mancat :)

Take care my Sweet Peach.Think only of the good times with Caesar. Sixteen years of life deserve that. What a fine life he had! We are all richer for knowing him :)
Purrs Mickey

Miss Peach, you did a beautiful memorial for Caesar. He would be so proud of it. We are praying for his family. So hard to loose a loved one. Mom thinks you and your Mom do a great job on your site. She wishes she has more knowledge about computers to do more than what she does. I am just glad to get to visit.

Still no snow yet. It's all around us but here. So crazy. Weatherman said there is suppose to be snow on the valley floor but we are closer in the foothills and suppose to have a better chance of snow. Oh well, it's suppose to be unsettled weather all week long. Well.........maybe. Mom saw the beautiful pictures of your snowflakes. We had a small earthquake last week. But guess that doesn't count. Was so funny, Dad felt it but Mom didn't. It spooked Gizmo and Cleo though.
