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.

MY DAYS WITH HOSPICE CARE...

It is not a welcome fact that I am in Hospice care at the cozy cottage right now. Most humans enter this type of end of life care within six months of going to their bridge. That is what brought me here to be with my mommy's mom Kitty. She has been gone now 10 years. I have lived a wonderful life here since that first day I came. I was rescued, as a senior kitty of almost nine years old, to be an end of life CATpanion to a dying lady who did not like cats. I became a Hospice volunteer and spent six weeks with grandma Kitty, who soon came to love me. I did my job very well...now mommy is doing many of the things to take care of me that I saw her do to mommy Kitty. Preparing special meals and making sure lots of water is always close by. Washing down my furs with warm fresh cloths, cleaning my eyes and mouth and nose and ears daily, sometimes two or three times. She does it very gently and then kisses me on the head. When I am done, I always get my special treats that I love so much, Greenies and Party Mix. I am watched over very close all the time. Mommy goes to bed late around 4am and Lapdaddy gets up at 6am, so I have constant care and full dishes. No kitty could ask for more better love and care. Mommy told me she will give me a report card of quality of life that came from Teri and the Furrydancers...I got a gold star today because I passed. It is a good day...thank you all for your precious comments and that you think about us in your busy days...

Lorraine said...

Oh Ms. Peach you are getting the most wonderful care any cat could hope for. I am so happy that you have such loving and caring companions who love you so much. Many cats like to be away from their companions as they prepare for their journey to the bridge and it is very hurtful to us humans although we try to understand that felines and humans handle things differently. I am so glad that you are so loving and accommodating to your family and honor them with your companionship during this difficult time.

Big hugs, gentle pets, and I'm asking all my felines to purr in your direction.

Lovely quote!

William said...

Rose and the Royals said...

You look so well taken care of, comfortable and in very loving care.
We have a packet of Party Mix and share your enthusiasm about them, as they are a new treat for us!
Rest easy, and know that your family are with you in Hospice care to repay all the love, affection and attention you have provided them over time.
Blessings, Dear Heart,
Rose and the Royals
