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.

Beautiful Miral has fought such a brave battle to stay with her beloved family as long as she could. Today she was called up into heaven while she was peacefully sleeping. We who are left behind are filled with sadness and ache.

Our hearts are heavy this weekend for the pain of our friends Lilly Lu, Mu Shue and Iris...but we will hold on to HOPE with all we can!

Miss Peach, We just heard of the sad news. It has been a very emotional weekend here on the Catblogosphere. Your post was beautiful and the poem made our eyes leak.
We have been seeing your comments on other blogs and you really are a treasure. Your words convey such love, support and comfort.

You are a blessing to us and all felines.
Try to find some time to snuggle and nap today, preferably in a sunbeam.

purrs, Shade and Goldie

Good Morning Sunshine!! <3
It is a sad weekend indeed :(
In an ideal world,we never lose our friends and no cat ever feels pain,hunger or loneliness. I guess that is what Heaven is,across the Rainbow Bridge.
This side of the Bridge,I guess it is up to us to make our own little heaven. We will miss our friends but remember them forever in our hearts. It still hurts though.
I am happy you have found your way back to your old snoozing spot ;) I bet that put a smile on your Mom's face. It did on mine :)
The days are growing longer and warmer so let's embrace the coming warmth and enjoy the goodness in life. As you quoted, "Sunshine came softly through my window today" That sunshine is you :)
Purrs & Headbutts, Mickey <3

What a lovely tribute, Miss Peach. It is true, we are interwined with those we love and always together. We are purring our hardest and praying that Mu Chue, Lilly Lu & Iris escaped off the balcony. We hope they are found soon.

Miss Peach, these are sad times of late. I am so sorry to hear about Miral going to the Bridge. She was beautiful -- as beautiful as your tribute. I know your tiny heart aches. I am also purring and praying that Mu Chue, Lilly Lu & Iris escaped and will be found soon.
Hugs and purrs,
Normie, your special friend.

We are hopeful for Laura's kitties too and so sad for Miral's family. Such an emotional weekend.

This was such a beautiful post for sweet Miral. I too was so sad to learn of her going to the Rainbow Bridge. She will be missed by all who know and love her. I am hoping that Lilly Lu, MuChur, & Iris are found safe and can get back to their mom and dad. Just terrible about the fire.

Oh Miss Peach and Karla it has been awful for kitties and their humans this weekend! The poem is beautiful. When I have some quiet time tomorrow I will reflect on it. It is something I need to hold in my heart. It's hard to put into words how heavy my heart is.
Your gentle words give me hope.
Lots of Love,

We are all deeply saddened by Miral's passing... We are thinking of her lovely family at this time and purring that they are coping ok, at least they had a chance to say goodbye... So many times this is not the case, that to me is much sadder...
