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.

SOMETIMES A DREAM COMES TRUE....BUT DOES NOT LAST...

 With a heavy heart and tears falling...the cozy cottage will say goodbye to beautiful Lena.  She will be going back home on Friday.   Several different reasons have made this very difficult decision necessary.  It is one that Dennis and I reached together after much prayer. 

 We have learned much in the month that we have shared with lovely Lena... that she is the most beautiful cat we have ever seen...sweet and playfull and a joy to snuggle with. We have learned much about ourselves...that try as hard as we may, we sometimes fail with our attempts to make problems work out.  We have failed Lena.  PLEASE keep us all in your prayers...

I'm so sorry. Don't know what happened, but I know you would not make this decision lightly. I hope you will still be able to have an open heart for another kitty in the future. Thinking of you.

Fuzzy Tales said...

We're sorry too, but in the end you have to do what is best for your existing household and for Lena too. Sometimes it's just the wrong animal companion and/or the wrong time.

Karla and Dennis,
We cannot even imagine, let alone accept, the thought that in any way you failed Lena. Two such loving, generous and tender people would have given fully to her in all ways ... some things simply are not meant to be, through the fault of none. We trust she will do well in her former home and that soon, you will find a new kit to love.

Karla, we are sorry that things are not working out with Lena. Sometimes things seem to be a good idea,but do not always work out as planned. We know you and Dennis have thought through all options.It is good that Lena can go back home.Maybe in the future you may find another furry.Maybe you are content with the lovely one you have :)
Hugs and Purrs!!!

Oh no, no, no! You have not failed Lena. Sometimes things just don't work out. Sometimes kitties just don't get along. Sometimes, we have simply taken on more than we can handle, even though we have tried our best to handle these things. We all understand! You must not think or feel like you have failed at anything!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Purrs to you all. We know you made the best decision for everyone involved.

will keep you in my prayers, I know how hard this decision must have been, but believe me you didn't fail Lena. Like with people some times personalities or friendships are just not to be.

Hugs and Purrs

we know the decision was made with everyone's best interest at heart, so don't think you have failed. You obviously love Lena or you would not feel as bad as you do about it not working out.
The gang are sending snuggles and purrs for all of you.

Lorraine said...

Oh dear friend, please don't say you have failed Lena and please don't think that either. So many of us have had a pet that didn't work out for one reason or another in our lifetimes and have endured the pain and guilt you feel right now. But please concentrate on the positive -- the time you had with her, the joy she brought to you and I'm sure the love she felt from you and Dennis as you cared for her so wonderfully.

I don't believe that things are meant to be, rather that they come to be and that we cannot always control the outcome. And further, that even if we can control the outcome, it is not always for the best -- thus the chaos in the world.

I'm keeping you both in my loving thoughts and heart. Walk through the grief and tears but do not blame yourselves. You will heal in time and I'm wishing for you that it will be brief.

Big healing hugs,
Lorraine

Sparkle said...

I am so, so sorry to hear this. I know you would only do this if it were the best thing for Lena, but you must be utterly heartbroken over it. I am sure this lovely little girl will find the right home - there is no fault in discovering that yours was not it. Purrs to you.

The Island Cats said...

We are so sorry to hear this news. We know you are doing what is right for Lena. That's not failing her. Sometimes things are just out of our control.

Gentle purrs and headbutts to you...

The Lee County Clowder said...

Oh, so, so sorry to hear that. Sometimes, things just don't work out. But at least she has someplace familiar to go.

Have a nice life, Lena. {{huggss}} to Karla & Dennis.

Goldie Goodwin said...

Such sad news. Hopefully things will work out in the end for everyone. Lena will be going back to familiar family and that will help her transition more easily. The decision to return her had to be almost unbearably difficult. My heart hurts for you and her.

The Cat From Hell said...

Some decisions is life are really difficult and hard for us to make. We love you and know that you did what is right for both of you and Lena. Life can be difficult.
We send you much love and many prayers.

Oh..No! We are so sorry for all of you. How terribly sad. Don't know what happened but it had to be a very hard decision to let her go. I'm so so sorry for all of you.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Oh my goodness!
Did Hunny not accept her?
Our hearts go out to you and know that it must have been a very hard decision to make, like the other posters have said.
Blessings to you and be at peace with your decision.

Laura and Taffeta Rose said...

Oh, no, we are so sorry that things did not work out with you and Lena. She is a great kitty, but maybe just not for you. Gentle hugs and purrs to you all.

Liebste Karla,
Dein Herz ist schwer, weil Du so hin- und hergerissen bist. Aber glaube mir, Ihr habt für alle das Richtige getan. Lena wird ein schönes neues Zuhause finden und eine glückliche Katze sein. Bei Euch kehrt auch wieder Ruhe ein. Manchmal muss man eben solche schweren Schritte tun. Ich umarme Dich und denke an Euch.
Liebe Grüße,
Birgit

Helena said...

YOU HAVE NOT FAILED HER!!

She has known LOVING people through you, and that will help her, not hinder her, in her years to come. Your pain in parting with her shows that you are lovingly doing what you think is best for HER and not holding on to her for your own sack.

You have nothing to berate yourselves over. Love always costs, and you have given lots of love.
