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.

Thursday, March 19, 2009


Happy First Day Of Spring! I let mommy give me my ear medicine without too much fuss. It tickles...then I shake my head all over the place. I am resting well and not in the mood for anything. I do thank all of you for your sweet visits, the well wishes, purrrs and love you have been dropping by at the cozy cottage. It means so much to me to have wonderfur friends like you.
Update Thursday evening: I have been pretty healthy up until now, with the exception when I almost died two years ago in October. All of your love and purrrs pulled me throught that scair. Now I have to ask for them once again. We have a date set for the surgery on Tuesday April 14th. I would rather be setting a wedding date! This makes me all a little bit crabilated. To top it all off, mommy took away my dry crunchies so I would not hurt my teeth any more. No fair, no good. They said I have a strong heart....but the rest of the story is not good.

Thursday morning: I am back from the Vet. I was very sciart but they were so nice and gentle with me. I am sorry to say that the news is not very good. I have an ear infection in both ears. They gave me two huge bottles of medicine for them. Being a 16 year old cat, they said I am still in fair shape, considering the shape I am in. I will have to have many of my teeth taken out. But that is not the worst of it. The tumor on my tummy is getting bigger and they want to take it away also, so I might have a little longer life. There is another small one growing there too and a tiny one on my tail. I would much rather be making wedding plans than surgery plans. I am feeling very sad..and mommy is very worried about all of these things happening at once to an old cat like me.

Oh goodness! We didn't even know you had a tumor!

We hope everything works out OK and you can get and stay healthy for many more years.

Michelle said...

Dear Miss Peach and Karla, so many things to worry about at once! I can't imagine that laying on electronics can be good for tumors -- or maybe it is good for tumors and bad for good health! I will be watching for updates, and pray your strong (and loving!) heart carries you through the procedures you are facing.

I am going to purrr for you MissPeach. I know getting old is hard and every day is a blessing, mom says.
I think the vet will take goo care of you, and your mom will take care of you just like a nurse, so don't despair. I think it is good that you do not have the crunchies anymore, mom gives me very few every day. she says they are not good for kitties, kind of like chips and cheese puffs are to humans, junkie. so just be happy. We will be prring and praying for you
