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 come inside the cozy cottage parlor today and make yourself comfortable.
We have Lady Grey tea and almond shortbread cookies for your delight. Mommy grew up in Germany and always felt special because her birthday falls on December 5th which is Sankt Nicholaus Tag. No one ever forgot her special day...she still talks about the surprise Tea Party I gave for her birthday last year as the most unforgetable one she ever had! 235 comments that can't be topped!
Mommy is so glad that she has such nice friends who know her so well...she loves to wear straw hats and eat good chocolate...
Look at this beautiful handmade card
that came from Mrs. B card shop in Cape Cod!
Look at this beautiful card and wonderful chocolate that came from dear Lorianna (Billie's mommy) at Twilight's Muse!
It has been a rough week for mommy taking care of me...I now have a litter box in the living room real close to where I sleep. I hope this helps me with my accidents. Getting old is hard sometimes. I do think that kitties can get Alzheimer's...that's my story and I am sticking to it:)

Hi Miss Peach!

A very happy birthday to your Mommy! I hope each year keeps getting better than the last.

I'm an old cat, too. I'm going to be 18 in February and sometimes, like yesterday, I mistake things like Mommy's sweater for my litter box. (I was also a little mad that I got shut out of the bedroom while Petey the dog got to stay in). So I understand.

Your pals,

Mica (the Aby) and Petey (the dog)

A Very Happy Birthday to your Mommy Miss Peach. I hope she has a lovely day filled with love and fun.

Whata pretty tea party. Have a lovely weekend.

Whicky Wuudler, Angel, Oliver, Gerry & Mum.

PS: More litter boxes near by will be a big help to you Miss Peach. If you think your memory may be failing a little, there is a supplement specifically for this in older cats and dogs called Activait. It may help a little, your vet will know about it - Luff from Angel.

Happy Birthday to your Mom Miss Peach! We hope she has a wonderful day. She looks very lovely in the straw hat with flowers!

Please do not worry about accidents , our Moms and Dads are very understanding. When Bouncie got very sick he had accidents too and Mom and Dad were very understanding too.

KitKat said...

Oh, Peachy, a very Happy Birthday to your dear Mommy Karla. I hope she has a wonderful and special day. I will stop by for tea and cookies and to wish her a Happy Birthday in person.
Don't worry about accidents. They happen to a lot of us.
I love the picture of your Mommy in her pretty straw hat.

Happiest of Happy Birthdays to your Mommy!

We're sorry that we haven't been able to visit much lately, dear friend - Mommy has been busy with the holiday cards and hasn't been helping us very much (though we've been trying to help her with the cards of course).

Purrs to you and your Mommy!
Pearl, Bert and Jake

Happy Birthday Karla!!

Cat with a garden said...

Happy Birthday to your Mommy! How nice to celebrate on such a special day. And what lovely chocolate she got - my mom likes it, too. We will have a cup of tea with you and those almond thingies also smell too good to be true. How cozy you got it here! And I must say that the second litter box only adds to the comfort...
Purrs from Siena, the little Chilli and their mum.

Happy birthday to your mom! I hope she has an extra-special day filled with magical things.

Happiest of Birthdays to your Mama.

Bebe, Suzy and I have been all excited about our first tea! The Boys said to say Happy Birthday too, but we would not let them come.

Now Miss Peach, You and I have earned the right to have an accident or two. We stately gals just have more important things on our minds than these young things do. Just yesterday I walked right past that box and into Mama's room, forgot why I was there and went right at the foot of the bed. Obviously I had to have been thinking of something terribly important or I would never have done such a thing.


Junior said...

Happy Purrthday to your Mom!!!

Meowm says she understands about getting old. The body just starts doing things on its own. But it doesn't matter what you do Miss Peach, we will always love you!!

Leslie said...

Happy birthday to very dear Karla! Hugs and purrs from Pyewacket, Trixie, Tigger and Leslie. XXX

P.S. Pyewacket had an accident too yesterday - unless she was getting back at mom for telling her off for yelling - Siamese yelling can be a bit wearing on the old nerves.

Happy Purrthday to your mum. No, no need for a treat. Just a quick hello and I am on my way.

Sweet Praline said...

Happy birthday to your mom!

Getting old can be rough, can't it?

Claudie said...

Happy Bday to you.
Came by from lovely Stefanie at Luna's. She is my Xmas Card swap partner. So sweet.
I know what it's like to get old Miss Peach.
My mom has these things called Fancy pants and they help if you can stand them. They are very pretty and sure help with those accidents.
Getting old is not fun is it?

We hope your mama had a wonderful birthday. St. Nickolas day was always mom's favorite when she was in Germany also. She loved marching in the parade with her lantern lit to the end where she got hot cocoa and pastries.

We think it is okay for you to have another litterbox that is more convenient for you.

Tavi, Cody, Camie and Miss Jade

Poopsie Blue said...

I feel awful I missed Mummy's birthday - I remember last years party so well.

Belated Greetings Karla!

Love to you both

Karen Jo said...

A very Happy Birthday, Karla! I hope you had a wonderful day, full of great things. Miss Peach, getting old can be a real pain. I am glad your Mom is so understanding.

Karen Jo said...

I almost forgot. Of course you have my permission to send my post about Mickey to Angelika.

Dearest Miss Peach,
I am so sorry to be late. I got caught up in the action over at Karl's place. It was Ruis's birthday party on Friday so I was there all day and all night. Please forgive me for being late. I do want to wish your Mom a very Happy (if belated) birthday. I hope that her day was filled fun, love and laughter.

I remember the last tea party I went to at your house. And sweet Roscoe went wearing a woman's straw hat! Hehehe! That crazy cat!

Sending you my warmest wishes and many kity kisses from Italy.

With Kindest Regards,
Your Farmboy
