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.

Do I look any better yet?
I drank a little and played in the water a lot!

I ate a little.

Mommy even made CAT ART SUNDAY with the two lovely book marks Adan sent. She made this pretty ATC with them!

Sleep is the best medicine.

I am so happy that you all have been over here to purrrrr me into feeling a little better today.
I slept all night and day...then ate and drank. That made mommy so happy!
Then I slept even more. Sleep is the best thing of all. Boy it sure was crowded in my frying pan today with 57 of you all in there!
Thank you all so very much for all of your love...

Mommy I don't feel so good....
Mommy my ears are getting all mashed up!

Mommy my node hurts real bad.....

Miss Peach is SICK! She has frightful sneezes and a runny nose! At under 5 pounds, she can not afford to be sick at her age. Devon Rex breeds have a compromised immune system, so this is very serious. PLEASE give lots of purrs and purayers for her right now. She has to take auntiebyotiks every 12 hours and that is no fun for either of us:( Poor old girl. She is inside of her beloved frying pan on top of the fridge. I have put the softest fleecy in it to keep her cozy. She ate a little bit this evening, so I am happy about that:)

I am really getting a workout climbing on the chair to tend to her every hour.

Look close under my weeping cherry tree...
Do you see him there sleeping in the dappled shade?
Does he look like somecat you might know?
He is grey and white,
Humm... I wonder...
A gentleman cat left his calling card for me today...
I think he likes my autumn garden.

Mommy is just so happy that I am sleeping in the frying pan again!
She put it on top of the fridge box, where it is warm.

OK who else is on my team?

Ann, Maggy & Zoey get all the thanks for the great team photo they did of me!

I once had a sweet Prince in my life...
Who loved me so very well...me, an old cat.
He has been gone for too long,
I do not know where he is at.

I love him still and always will.
My days are few,
and I know he would understand
that I need a friend of a mancat
to cheer me in the winter of my life.

Isn't she lovely...
12 years ago she was just a tiny sweet Pixie...

Now she is having a wonderful birthday...

Today my dear friend Pixie is having her birthday! She is 12 years old! I want to give her a banana plantation but I don't know how to wrap it up. We are both old sick kitty girls and every birthday we have is very special... make a wish Pixie and blow out the candles!

Well, do I look happy or what?
This is not going to last long...
I am out of here!

All of these cute hat pins came from Monty Q..
they are just darling and I have great plans for them:)
Thank you Monty:)
So hard to chose which bead I like best!
Have you ever seen a mermaid kitty?

My beloved friends Adan and Michico sent me the original watercolor! We are so handsome together having tea on our pretty cushions...the cup on my table is full of folded stars and the crane is the only one I ever folded. One is better than none:)

The ATC below is made from
recycled envelope art
and a wine bottle label.
I love how it turned out!

Peach's mommy here...she has been a very bad girl today! She peed in her tomato box on top of the fridge so now she has no place to sleep anymore because the other 49 places in the house that she could sleep in are not good enough for her!


She stops on the velvet face of the pansy...

a ruffled delight these fragrant blossoms are a sweet treat

They say you can see the face of a kitten inside of a pansy:)

Next stop is the summer queen of flowers...

The sunflower!

Growing in the fields of Kansas
as far as the eye can see...
not a lovelier sight have I ever seen!

The drowsy blooms
of the late summer roses
give way to autumn mums
and my beloved Michaelmas daisies...
soon and very soon...

Cool CAT in the HOT DESERT

Mommy loves to watch me sleep so content.
The cactus wrens are watching Poncho sleep
in this painting
by one of my favorite artists Charles Wysocki

The radiant Anastasia is watching

Karl lounge in his desert today.

The sun is shining just a little brighter

in the blue sky and it feels so nice

to know that she is there.

{thank you Karl at the Cat Realm for letting me use you as my muse today}

Once upon a time there was a tiny white kitten that came to be in the animal shelter. My brother in law knew I was looking for the purrrfect cat for a very special couple. Our Pastor and his wife were getting ready to sail their boat down the Pacific coast and round to Mexico into the Sea of Cortez. They wanted a kitty for company on the long journey ahead.
As I carried the tiny fuzz ball in the palm of my hand, she purrrred softy. It was love at first sight for all of them! They took her home and named her Fiona.
That was three years ago and now they are home again. I can hardly wait to hear all about her adventures on the high seas! I do know that she fell into the ocean a few times. Oh the horror of it...thankfully she was always attached to her harness. I wonder if she ever saw any pirates:)
You might notice a close resemblance to our lovely Marilyn Monroew...I wonder if they are sisters? Such beauty doubled is almost overwhelming! WELCOME HOME FIONA!

Oma and I picking wildflowers in the Alps.

My sweet friend Cindy from ROSEHAVEN COTTAGE and the beautiful orange cat KELLIE have tagged me for the RANDOME FACTS MEME. We have decided to do this one together, mommy and me>(^,^)<

1} We are both redheads...but she has more grey now that she is of a certain age:) When she was little, people made fun of her hair and her mom kept a hat on her whenever they went strollering:( It gave mommy a complex:(

2} We are both very independant and always get our way. Poor Lapdaddy has a time of it around here with the two of us. He is very sweet and understanding and we don't even deserve him:)

3} I like ice creme and mommy doesn't!!!! She doesn't like peanut butter either!

4} Mommy sleeps in a nice cozy bed. I have a crinkle sack, a sleeping bag, a popup tent, a new blankie from Dragonheart, a fuzzy cup from the cat who came before me Minka, a crochette basket, an electric blanket,my pillow in the window, a new baby blue fuzzy blanket, a frying pan, a laundry basket, and my tomatoe box from California. I keep telling mommy that I am a cat who simply can not be pleased!

5} I need lots of sleep at least 22 hours a day! Mommy is a night owl and spends lots of time in her BAT CAVE making stuff. She loves the night because of it's peacefulness and the quiet all around her. She goes to bed around 3. I guess one could say she is up early in the morning:))

6} Mommy hates the telephone and never calls anyone. Lapdaddy always has to answer it when it rings. No one ever calls for me or I would answer it>(^,^)<

7} Mommy grew up in Bavaria with her Oma & Opa, she lived there until 1990. I grew up in Portland Oregon and lived there until 2001.

I will not tag anycat because so many of you have done this meme. Please do play along if you have not been tagged and let the fun continue:)


I better bathe because I have a new soft beddy!

It sure has pretty colors on it!

OK ... thank you Dragonheart for the nice new beddy!

Now where is my Tomato box???
You can lead a cat to the bed of a Princess....
you can not make her stay!

This is the pretty prize I won in Dragonheart's Scavenger hunt contest. It came to me from the Siamese Rescue organization which is near and dear to his mommies heart.
