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.

~More Dansing~

by Edward Lear
The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat:
They took some honey, and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"0 lovely Pussy, 0 Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!"
Pussy said to the Owl, "You elegant fowl,
How charmingly sweet you sing!
Oh! let us be married; too long we have tarried,
But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the bong-tree grows;
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood,
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.
"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will."
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

~~~The Children of the Owl and the Pussycat~~~

Our mother was the Pussy-cat, our father was the Owl,

And so we're partly little beasts and partly little fowl,

The brothers of our family have feathers and they hoot,

While all the sisters dress in fur and have long tails to boot.
My post today is dedicated to my furry sister Marilyn....see her in the boat?
She inspires my days and makes me want to be a better cat>(^,^)<

All your today's danced in harmony,

Will make tomorrows moments,

A treasured remembrance of yesterdays...

~~~ My Precious Puppy Cat~~~
Beautiful graphic above lovingly made by Willow and China Cat
Today I cry silver tears...wild questioning tears...fist pounding screaming tears...overwhelming sad tears...missing you tears...lonely tears...orphan tears...hopeful tears...

My precious Daddy who adopted this old cat...is resting softly next to my sweetest sister Suzanne...my family in HEAVEN...watching me from above...together with Henry the VIII and our jade eyed desert Queen Anastasia. Your sunbeams will warm our hearts all of our days till we join you in the colorful Heavyside layer.

Who knows how long I've loved you. You know I love you still. Will I wait a lonely lifetime...If you want me to -- I will.
For if I ever saw you,I didn't catch your name. But it never really mattered. I will always feel the same.
Love you forever and forever. Love you with all my heart. Love you whenever we're together. Love you when we're apart.
And when at last I find you..Your song will fill the air. Sing it loud so I can hear you. Make it easy to be near you. For the things you do endear you to me. You know I will I will.
- The Beatles

"Don't cry because it's over ... smile because it happened."


Today I would like to invite everycat to come and stay with me for a nice visit out here on my patio. Mommy brought me a nice new blanket with pretty fringe to play with. We can braid it if you like, or just tussle it all about! Later I will fix us some catmint tea in a beautiful Kitty teapot mommy found at an Antike Shop today. It was made in the country that Adan lives, and is very old...as in Antike:) I have bags of Temptations to go along with the tea:)and all these other goodies. I am sure you will find something to delight your taste buds:) Mommy says the weather will be nice and sunny...we can rest in the sunbeams Anastasia sends down from the Heavyside Layer. It has been a sad past week and we now have a bit of blissful respite to be thankful for. Please come, it will do your soul so good.
UPDATE:I am so glad you are finally all here! Tuna puffs are just the best, so light and fluffy! Once again Enya is soothing us with her soulful tunes. (No Willie we can not sing FREEEEEE BIRRRRRD!! Benjamin please help me out here)Kellie and Daisy are braiding the fringes into such a neat edge! Mommy will love that! She braids all the rug fringes...it is an OCD thing...whatever dat is:)Ahhh almost 3 o'clock...time for more water in the kettle...Lapdaddy will be home from work soon and he needs his afternoon Latte! HI LATTE...no you can still use the Latte cup...he drinks out of his Seattle coffee mug:)OH gosh...did you see that big dragonfly just land over by the pond? Wow a goldfinch just flew in also! This is a WONDERFUL afternoon in Anastasia's glowings. Thank you all for being here.

~There's Always Room~

Today all over America selfless volunteers head out with their precious charges to Pet Stores in hopes of a miracle. The Blessing of a forever home is indeed just that...a Miracle. I dedicated this poem to them today...to those who gather the hungry, the cold, the pleading, the lost, the lonely, the unwanted, the forgotten, the discarded, the abused, the hurt, the frightened, and give them this one day of HOPEFULNESS.
That means the Grout Lady from Mosaic Cats in North Carolina,and Marilyn's Mommy in Tennessee, Diana in Portland, Anita in Cape Cod, Daisy's Mommy in Florida and all those who know who you are....But more important what you are! You are made of the FIBERS OF LOVE...
If you Bigafy the photo the poem is more clear to read:)


ATC above was made by my terrier loving friend Lorian. Her ATC gave me a perfect doggie on wheels too:))

My pal JACKSON went to a magical place called RYE HARBOUR in East Essex. Wandering into the countryside, he came across birds and rabbits and a plant called Hemlock:( DANGER JXN!)
On one of his excursions he visited the nearby town of Rye, which is very pretty with its cobbled streets, a medieval church and Tudor and Georgian houses.
Some history was mixed into the outing with views of an ancient tower that defended against a possible invasion during the Napoleonic Wars.
WOW wish I could have come along!

Well, I promised JACKSON a story so here goes:
Once upon a time,when my mommy was a little girl, she lived with her Oma & Opa in Germany. There were always lots of kitties scampering about the place, but she really wanted a little doggie:) A wire hair Fox Terrier!!! One day she asked Opa to please bring one home when he went off to work. He drove a streetcar. Someone with such an important job could do anything in a little girls eyes. He didn't say yes...but not no either.
That evening she waited expectantly for the sound of his motorcycle signaling his return.
As he walked by outside the kitchen window, she could see that he was carrying something tucked close under his arm:)
He came inside and placed a beautiful Fox Terrier on the dining room table! He was purrrrfect in every way. Bright eyes, perfectly color patched and such a nice red collar that matched the red wheels he stood on. I picked him up, squeezed his sides and he barked!! I never even noticed he wasn't real...just a toy on wheels.
Albert Einstein once said, "Imagination is everything".
MY HERO granted my wish and my life was perfect. Now I have my sweet pal JACKSON...a pip of a pup. Now my pal and I are going to live happily ever after.
Thats JXN's buddy HAMILTON above. He has three more on wheels! My fluffhead looked just like him:)

Wonder where JXN will go next? Toodle Pip till then.....I just love my NOMSS pal!!

Have you ever thought of where you came from? How are you put together? How many parts go into the fibers of your being? I love this little kitty...made up of my favorite colors from a vintage quilt. A sweet faced fat little triangle of a fluffhead...she came to live with me back in 1998, bought from a craft vendor at our local mall. Who made this cat of many colors? How old is the quilt from which it is put together...who used it before...where did they live?

All I know is that this kitty is here to stay...she makes me smile:) while I ponder the fibers of my being.

I hope you have a wonderful day...you always make me smile:))

What is this yellow thing upon my table?
You expect me to eat this?
Sorry....I am just not able!
Please don't follow me with it to my chair...
Look out! You are smearing it in my hair!!
Though it looks real pretty,
And it does smell kind of sweet...
You better just send it to Miss Pixie,
Cuz it's not something I will ever eat!

Sorry about the bland post...Mr Blogger is being testy these past two days:( At least we are still here:)
The card below is one of my favorite images. I love to stamp this cat because it reminds me of the cat who came before, Miss Minka, she was a blue~creme Persian and lived a full life with the beans for 18 years! This card went on a trip to Bianca in North Carolina. Her grouty ML likes all bright colors, so here it is!

Below you can see some of the kitty jouls I have made...these are such fun little treasures. These have all been rehomed also:)

Well Miss Pixie and I spent some time shopping while we were at the Sweet Sixteen reunion that Benjamin hosted so purrrrfectly for us in Seattle. I helped Pixie carry the many shoe boxes back to the Hotel. We liked all the shoes so we couldn't pick just one pair:) Doesn't Pixie has purrrrfect taste? She could even give Daisy some tippers:) Have a happy Sunday and keep creating!!


Well I feel a bit worn out from my 45 minute flight to Seattle. There was a dog on the airplane and he barked the whole time!!! Just give me a massage and a Niptini, my bathrobe and fuzzy slippers and I will be good as new in the morning. Lucky I brought my make~up (bigafy and get a load of my false eyelashes!)and my ball gown with me in my carry on....it seems the rest of my luggage has been sent to Alaska!
I sure an looking forward to the PIC~E~NICK and fun and games this afternoon! Can you see yourself in the photo....which kitty are you? Do you see me and Pixie sitting on the bench at the bottom rightish side:) Come on over and join the fun!
http://sweetsixteensforkitties.blogspot.com/ See who all is here already and who has promised to try to make it!

and some nice CAT ART for you to see even if it is not Sunday:)
Cat Tag I made for this cute book.

My brother DRAGONHEART tagged me to list ten things I don't like. Here is my list:
1} Not being able to sit on places I want to~like mommies black dress, lapdaddy's newspaper when he is reading it or the table during dinner time.
2} Being cold in the winter time!
3} Not being able to visit all my blogging furrrends as often as they come over and see me. Where does my day go...napping it all away. Being old is hard. Know how much I love you all and look forward to coming by even if you do not see me...I have been there:)
4} Being carried into the bathroom! I don't mind having a bath....I just hate the lead up to it!
5} Chunky cat food! I like fine mince because I am old and my teeth are bad.
6} Mommy trying to make me sleep in comfortable places that SHE thinks are good for me. Like my heated cup, my velvet sleeping bag, my heating blanket, my fleecy cup, my flannel blanket, my window pillow, in front of the fireplace blahblahblah...a cat has a good mind of it's own!!!
7} Getting caught drinking out of the fish bowl.
8} Long car trips because I have to stay in my wicker pet carrier. I am glad I get to go along...are we there yet:)
9} Knowing that I am wearing out my ninth life:(
10} Not finding my litter box in time and disappointing mommy...
Monty Q, Daisy, Tyler, Parker, Adan, Marilyn, Chairman Mao, Brainball and Dory Doo have each offered me one of their lives! How precious is their love? I NOW HAVE NINE LIVES:)
Read John15:13<><

Mommy made this needlework in 1979 when she had her first ginger cat and her hair was really RED.

~~My PAL JACKSON the coolest DOG~~

THANK YOU KARL for your amazing dare that changed my kitty life. I now have a sweet furrrend across the blue water in England. His name is JACKSON (just like my last name:) He is a wirehair Fox Terrier. When I double dog dared him to come play, this is what he said to me:) Barks to you Miss Peach! Jackson here! I accept your dare and here I am. I know I said that I hate cats, but I guess SOME cats are OK and we do share a name after all! I suppose I could make an exception in your case and offer you the paw of friendship (just don't tell any of my pals, got a reputation to keep!)
He still likes to chase cats....he even asked Daisy if she can run real fast!! But the very best thing is how he ammended his sidebar to read: I hate cats (except Miss Peach:) how about that!!!? I think he is as cool as James Bond!
I want you to know him better, so today is dedicated to my woofie bud:) Jackson
Gender: Male
Astrological Sign: Leo
Toy destroying dog
United Kingdom
About Me

Hello, I'm Jackson, a 7 year old Wire Fox Terrier. I live in the UK with my owners J1 & J2. I was rehomed from Fox Terrier Rescue in August 2004. I don't really like other dogs much, but I've got two friends who are both Irish Terriers called Molly & Seamus. Molly bosses me about but I don't really mind. My other pals are four "dog on wheels" toys called Seymour, Barnaby, Dunstan and Hamilton. I like them because they're easy to push around! I've had a few health problems recently including cancer and kidney stones. I'm learning to live with degenerative disc disease, but I'm feeling a lot better now, paws crossed.
Destroying toys
Favorite Movies:
The Thin Man of course! It stars the lovely Asta Wire Fox Terrier
Favorite Books:
Dumb Witness by Agatha Christie. A mystery solved by Monsieur Bob the Wire Fox Terrier
I think JACKSON is the purrrfect dog, don't you? When I give my paw in friendship, it is forefur:) I am just way over the top happy JACKSON accepted. He even ammended his side bar to make an exception for me in there!! Now that takes courage in a dog eat dog world:) He has been through a lot in his lifetime and I pray for his health to be kind to him for manymany years.
Now I want all of you to make a quick trip over to see him in England right now because TODAY IS JACKSON'S BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Leave him lots of purrrrs in his mailbox:) and show him some kitty love:)

To go along with her Faerie bower, Anita made this Faerie ring. They gather here at night for dancing and planning their magical visits. Notice the berry studded tree...one must always leave gifts for the faeries...they appreciate that so much. I wonder what flavor of Temptations the kitty faeries like best?
The kitty faerie below is named Zydeco. On the hunt for lightning bugs, crouching low is the way to wait for them to fly by. We need to have them to light our flights into the night.As a child, my mommy loved the story of Peter Pumpkin Eater. How cozy to live in a pumpkin. She used to make flower petal dolls and put them in the flower beds.
In my garden I have an ice crème parlor chair with the seat removed....added a pot to fit....filled it with a cottage painted rock...a bird bath and grow Irish moss all around it. It is my faerie chair and my little trolls live in it:))
One of my favorite faerie books is named "Fairyopolis" a flower fairies journal, it belongs to Cicely Mary Barker. It is a wonderful interactive altered style book...full of secret little pop outs, fold outs, books inside of books, envelopes and the most fun your imagination could have!
My mommies favorite faerie movie is "Fairy Tale: A True Story" 1997...starring Sir Peter O'Toole & Harvey Keitel. It takes place in England during WW1. It is an enchanting MUST SEE!! I like to try and catch the faeries as they fly around, but the are always too fast for my paws. I would never hurt them. It would be fun if they came and sat on the tips of my ears. My frootbats are big enough:)

Who is this bright blue eyed beauty? I have never seen her before. Some faeries do not have names. What should we name her?
