MISS PEACH'S COZY COTTAGE

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.

BEING CLOSE TO THE ONE I LOVE...


I did something quite different today...I went into the garage which is right next to my auntie room. My sweet Lapdaddy was working in there making some new gingerbread trim for the house. I wanted to be closer to him...you see...I did something yesterday that I have never done to him before...I hissed at him. It broke his heart. He was only trying to hold me close and snuggle me up a little bit, but I did not want to be held and then ran to my box. I am sorry I did that. I am just not myself anymore these days. So I followed him into his workshop just to be with him...I did not care that the big machines were making sawing and sanding noise...I just sat on the floor and by the food dishes. I ate a little bit and drank.

I got a message from my beloved husband cat Mickey last night...he tells me he is waiting for me. I am not afraid now. Your purrrrs comfort me. But for now...I stay. Mommy talks to me and cries into my furs...I just purr a little bit and stay awhile longer.

We understand why your lapdaddy wants to hold you close and your mom cries into your fur. They want every moment possible with you. We send warm peaceful hugs, purrs and wags.

Laurie said...

What a wonderful friend you have been all of these years, a very special cat indeed. Your love will always be with you. I'm sending you strength.

Helena said...

Oh dear Miss Peach, I'm sure that your lapdaddy knows you didn't mean it. I remember when Fluffy got very thin, she didn't like to be cuddled. I think her ribs hurt her if we held her. It is hard not to cuddle one so loved, but we understand, don't worry. We know that a hiss is the only way you have of telling us 'no'.

I am glad you've been comforted by your Mickey. But also glad you are still with us!

Mr Scooter sends you purrs and in-and-out toes and a gentle kiss to your left ear.

The rest of us send the gentlest of strokes just under your chin, and a little cream on a Queen Anne saucer.

Keep warm, and purr, dear sweet princess cat.

Prancer Pie said...

No worries, dear one, your lapdaddy knows you did not mean it. Purrs, hugs, and kisses from all of us.

oh Misses Peach, we know that your beloved Mickey is there watching over you and waiting and loving you. Our the mom knows what you mom and lapdaddy are going through and she sends many hugs and warm light to them. It's so very very hard.

Stacy Hurt said...

Everytime I see a post I just hold my breath. I don't even want to click for fear that you are either still struggling on this plane or that you you gone to the next.

I feel so much anguish for your mum and there is not one of us out here in the CB who doesn't know exactly what she and your lapdaddy are going thru.

I send prayers for each of you that your transition be smooth and for all your sakes; in it's time.

Misses Peach, we know LapDaddy understands, but it is nice that you went to see him, we are certain it helped him feel better.

We are glad Mickey is waiting for you. It will be a joyful reunion for the two of you.

Pierro said...

Missie Peachieflower, you know Caesar and Princess are waiting for you too.

We remember so well Prinnie's last days. Her gaze was more distant and she also did some unusual activities, and sometimes she was confused but just like you, she was also very comfortable. Mommie adored taking care of her in her last days.

It has been an honor to know you, and you have had the best life, it was long, longer than most kitties get to have, and that is a gift, a gift that will be treasured to those you leave behind.

Please know that we are holding you and your family up in purrs and prayers. You are always in our hearts..

LapDaddy would not have minded your little tantrum Misses Peach as he loves you very much. We bet he was so happy when you visited him in the garage today. We are pleased Mickey has sent you a message so you know he will be looking for you when it is your time to cross. Give Mommy and LapDaddy lots of cuddles while you can.
You are a very special lady.

How much can a heart take? So very hard, so incredibly painful to have a loved one torn from you, whether inch by inch or in a sudden wrench. Shedding tears for you all....

Sweet, sweet Misses Peach. I know you love your Lapdaddy and he understands why you hissed. My heart aches along with Mommy's and Lapdaddy's. We all love you very much. I need more kleenex.

Dearest Miss Peach,
You are a brave and gallant lady and we love you so much.
We know when the time is right to say goodbye you will go to join Mickey at the Bridge and run free forevermore with no more of the ravages of age or pain.
God bless you and your Family.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Lapdaddy knows you didn't mean that hiss, sometimes it's the only way kitty has of saying "it hurts". We think of you every day and purr for you and your fambly. Mommy sez the only way loving a kitty wouldn't end in hurt is if both the person and the kitty passed at the exact same moment, in each others arms...dat isn't usually how it happens and da human ends up wif der heart broked. Thank goodness dey love us anyway...

caspersmom said...

We purrs and prays for you Miss Peach. I'm sure your lapdaddy realizes you didn't mean to hiss at him. I'm getting up in that age bracket too. I am just a year younger than you. Mom says I'm getting to look older and older in her eyes. Love and Hugs to you.

Casper, Cleo and Mom

Laura and Jet Dragon said...

Sweet Peach, Mickey is waiting, but he is patient, so please don't go until you have to. Your parents just want a little more time to hold and cuddle you. Love all.

Rene said...

Oh, oh, sweet girl. We are purring for you and your mom and dad.

Lorraine said...

Oh I am sitting here crying dear Ms. Peach. You know that Lapdaddy is forgiving and knows that you never meant to hiss at him. But sometimes when we are old and hurting we like to be left alone. You were so sweet to follow him out to the noisy garage and keep him company. Purr over mommy; she needs to have that comfort.

Keeping you in my heart dear ones at the cottage.
Lorraine
