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 is my dear friend Errica....HOPE's mommy saying Goodbye to little HOPE on the last day she was here last month.  Errica brought HOPE to live with us fur(less)ever from Texas because she wanted HOPE to have the best home in the whole world.  HOPE is her most special kitty and she picked the cozy cottage to be her forever home!  Errica breeds these wonderfurless kitties in her acclaimed cattery.  Her downsizing put us in a most favorable position. For shortly after we had to give up our beloved Lena last year, we have been talking about making a home for HOPE after she retired from breeding.   It has been a year of ups and downs for little HOPE.  She had her last kitten this summer and was spayed.  We were excited to have her join us in September.  Then Hope got hurt in a kitty quarrel with two others because of her gentle peacekeeper nature.  Her wound on her side would not stay healed over...we were so terrified she would not make it through the battle of that dreadful infection!  Her mommy Errica is the most wonderful person and gave HOPE the best tender loving care you can only imagine...and she finally pulled out of it all and recovered.  Her side shows the battle scars and I kiss them often...and thank her for pulling through so we could welcome her into our empty lives!  This tiny four year old, four pound, pink panther has completely stolen our hearts with her charming ways of cathood!  Lapdaddy and I can hardly believe that a kitty can be so purrrrfect in every way!  She came into the cozy cottage, threw her PTU into the corner...jumped up on her sofa...claimed her heated cat bed...ate out of her crystal bowls...used her litter girls room box...told Hunny Bunny she was here to stay and we never looked back.  We just knew it would work out because it felt so very right.  It was meant to be...our hearts were ready.  We are so very grateful to Errica for giving us this sweet little velvet covered bundle of cat bones.  HOPE was her most special love kitty...she gave us HOPE!  We wish you all a most wonderful VALENTINE'S DAY.  Our hearts are full of blessings...thank you Errica!
