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.

It was not this major league baseball jersey either!
It was the player who wears it!!!

Last week my sweet grandbean Cole told my mommy that she would never have to worry about a thing. He was going to grow up and be a Baseball player, make lots of green papers, and play in the World Series someday. This year Cole is off to a good start because he made the All Star Team in his little league! YEAH!!
This weekend Cole had his ninth birthday and it will be one he will never forget!
The surprise guest who came to his house was none other than Detroit Tigers Pitcher Jeremy Bonderman!!!! A little boy in Washington can have big dreams. Happy Birthday Cole!
Well Jeter, what do you think about this??? Cool Huh!!

The Furry Kids said...

Miss Peach, we want you to come to our party. I don't have an escort either. Do you have to be escorted by a mancat? What if Titus escorted you? Would that be ok? You guys could just hang out if you're not feeling up to playing. Titus is real good at laying around and napping. Come over, Miss Peach. It's not a party without you!


Unknown said...

I couldn't believe my eyes. This has to be a little boys dream come true. I am very excited for Cole!

Dorydoo said...

Oh, Miss Peach, Miss Peach, Miss Peach! Marilyn and I have both thought over the last week or so that you and Mickey the Black Cat were becoming close...

I love you and hope you aren't angry with me...

Lots and lots of love from Dorydoo!

Kimo and Sabi said...

WOWY WOW! Yer beans must have some clout! Mommakitty wonders if you could git Russel Crowe to come visit our house?! Please?! Her purrthday is in April...is that enough time to git in touch wif da great gladiator?! Just let us know so we can clean da house first. Fanks!

The Furry Fighter said...

How exciting!!! Happy birthday to Cole!

Brainball said...

Miss Peach, please do not worry. You did not make a mess of anything! Dorydoo had thought you were getting something going with another mancat, and who knows -- maybe you will! Any mancat would be lucky to have a lovely lady like you.

And please, come to me when you need a mancat shoulder to meow on. I am forever and ever your big brother. Dorydoo is glad you are not upset with her. We all love you very much. Whenever you need a hug from a big Alpha boy, I am here for you, my little ginger sister. Can I call you my little ginger sister? We are both ginger, so we are related!

Much love and rumbly purrs from Brainball.

Oh, my precious sister! I am so glad to hear my girlish intuition was, after all, close to the mark. *big smile*. I completely understand, and I have hopes for Sunshine and Moonshine -- the sweet things you say to one another make me smile and my heart flutter.

I am like you, very old-fashioned and traditional -- I almost got the vapors at the party when Dorydoo made the first move to hold EG's paw! Can you believe that? I couldn't help but smile, but... oh MY! Dorydoo is such a forward young ladycat, but then she is much younger than I am *big smile*

You are right that love just seems to fall where it may. You are a wonderful lady and a blessing -- and oh, I am hoping, hoping, hoping for you... wouldn't it be something if we, two sisters, had mancats who have the same name *smile*?

My mom also loves the Robert Herrick poem -- and what a wise and instructive exhortation: "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, for time is still a flying!" My mom has been emotional today because of Brainball -- she's relieved that he's doing better, but it terrified her so, the speed with which he got so sick on Friday, and as a result, she has been thinking a lot today about how very important it is to cherish every single second we are blessed to share with our dearly loved ones.

As I do, dear sister, with you.

Love and purrs and sistersnuggles from your adoring Marilyn.
