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.

Today I remember when this card arrived for my precious Miss Peach...
She was deathly ill and laying by the fire...
I thought her days were few and I prayed the words of the card to come true!
~here is the complete poem, if you click on the photo abouve, it will take you back to October 2007 and my story~
~On a night of snow~

Cat, if you go outdoors you must walk in the snow
You will come home with little white shoes on your feet
Little white slippers of snow that have heels of sleet
Stay by the fire my Cat. Lie still, do not go.
See how the flames are leaping and hissing low
I will bring you a saucer of milk like a marguerite
So white and so smooth, so spherical and so sweet
Stay with me, Cat. Outdoors the wild winds blow.

Outdoors the wild winds blow, mistress, and dark is the night
Strange voices cry in the trees intoning strange love;
And more than cats move, lit by our eyes' green light,
On silent feet where the meadow grasses hang hoar,
Mistress, there are portents abroad of magic and might,
And things that are yet to be done. Open the door.

Misses Peach, we are so happy, too, that you didn't go! Big smooches and kitty kisses and don't get any ideas to go anywhere for a long time, either!

I am glad you still have your dear sweet Miss Peach! Your mommy took such great care of you, and you loved her enough to work hard to stay! Bless you, and this post made me feel 'thankful' today - for the gift of life.

Lovely card, lovely poem, and so happy you are still with us lovely Peach. Such a nice tribute by your mom.

I so enjoyed your countdown to fall -- and boy has it arrived with a cold wave. But the countdown to the end of DST is not fun at all. I'll miss getting out at night as unlike cats, I don't like to travel in the dark!
Hugs, Pets and Purrs,

So very happy that you pulled through! I read many pages of your blog lastnight from in 2007. Waht a beautiful story and pictures to go with it! I was in tears reading it. I honestly think that you & Mommy Karla should publish a bunch of pages with the pictures included from your blog- it would be a good seller in print- and maybe Title it "Livestrong"!-- It tells so much about life and love, & is truly touching.- Love you Misses Peach and Karla too!!--xo-Stormy the Maltese doggy...
