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.

Mommy and I have been thinking alot about our backyard and how it seems to attract happy visitors all the time. Kitties wander through and squirrels stop to visit. All of the birdhouses Lapdaddy built are full of birds all summer long. Dragonflies lay eggs in our pond, praying mantis lay egg cases in the flowers. In winter we have wild turkeys wandering about and birds come to eat out of the feeders. Mommy is an organic gardener to help make sure the insects are safe. We do wish they would not eat the lovely hosta plants...oh well. We have food, shelter, water and houses for the birds to rear their young. So we hope that our application for a Backyard Wildlife Habitat will be approved! Keep your paws crossed for me and if they do, I will have a nice tea party for all of us to celebrate!

Oh my, I am proud of you both.
My garden is an organic wildlife habit too but because it's soooo wild & over grown.
Have my fingers crossed for you to get this well deserved award.

Now, 'cousin' Peach, I've had an invite from your Lapdaddy.
He's says if I do get dressed up, I can go for a ride in the 1913 Buick, are you coming too???


Daisy said...

Oh, Miss Peach, the wildlife habitat people would be silly not to pick your yard. It is a veritable paradise! XOX T.

Oh wow, your backyard has so many great visitors. You must have so much fun in the garden!

Shaggy and Scout said...

We love that last picture with Mr. Squirrel on the limb of the tree! He looks pretty happy to chill there for a bit! You are sure to get the Habitat prize!

I love your garden.


Mo and The Purries said...

Oh, my backyard (obviously before I sold the house) was a NWF certified backyard habitat.
Sounds like you have all the elements needed to get certified!

Hi Karla and Miss Peach,
A Backyard Wildlife Habitat in your very own yard? How wonderful! Mommy Karla is such a good caretaker for all animals. Your yard is such a beautiful refuge. I think all of your animal visitors sense the loving energy that comes from you.
I like Miss Peach's new bed. She's so silly. :)
Karla, I'm worried about your headaches and nosebleeds. Do you have a sinus infection or allergies? Please get it checked out if they continue. Pretty Please? :) You shouldn't have to feel miserable and think how much more fun stamping and gardening you would have if you felt better!
Thank you for the offer of the Feliway dispenser. I don't want you to pay for the postage for that though. My husband is convinced it doesn't work. I will ask the VET if it does in his presence, ;) If she says it could help Toeshee calm down then we will try it. (Sigh...Men!)
I hope everything is wonderful at The Cozy Cottage. I think of my friends Karla and her sweet kittylady so so much!
I love you!

I hopes you gets it!
