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.

This beautiful card came to us from SHELL'S mommy with one of our auction wins that she had donated... A thank you was penned inside...it made us cry... As an artist myself, I must say that I adore this simple poignant card with it's soft watercolor wash. It is filled with emotion for me when I look upon it. The tiny kitty waiting at the big window...waiting waiting waiting...just as SHELL did for so long. We must try to live in those ordinary tiny moments that come along each day...moments others are too busy to even notice. That little bird singing in the tree...the tulips nodding in the windy rain...watching a car hurry down the road carrying a loved one home to someone waiting for them....

Speaking of cars and loved ones...I get to go with the beans and my best friend Cole to Leavenworth for this week! Mommy is homesick again and needs her portion of Germany...if we have internets there, we will try to post. Please do not forget us until we return, we will miss you all.

Please tell Cole, that we visited Leavenworth in WWW. Steffen was surprised about the German/Bavarian Town in America.
He would love to come with you ;o)

Oh what a terrific card -- I have several cards of cats at windows or doors but this one is very special -- the color amd simplicity just makes one feel the emotion. Whenever I see a cat sitting at a window or door, wanting in -- I feel so sad. I just want to go right to the house and knock on the door and say: let the cat in!!! Thanks for sharing such a special card. I also love the new kitty at the top of the blog.

Have a wonderful trip to "your" part of Germany.
Hugs, pets and purrs,

Hi Misses Peach! What a beautiful card from Shell's mom - it made our mom all leaky to see it. She is still so sad about Shell.

And we are glad you are getting to go on a trip with your best friend Cole - that is going to be so much fun for you! We can't wait to hear all about it!
