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.

Queen Isis of Lovelynx

A sweet little Princess has blossomed into a lovely Queen...


The role of a Lady in Waiting changed and evolved according to to wishes of the reigning monarch and Queen. The role of the English Lady in Waiting dated back to the Dark Ages and the Medieval period. Where there was a Queen she would require high ranking ladies to attend her. They were not expected to perform trivial and menial tasks - these were performed by servant beans.
The Lady in Waiting was an important member of the royal court and played an active role in participating with court entertainments, such as paw massages, tea parties, dance and musical entertainment. The Ladies in Waiting were selected from high ranking and noble families. The Lady in Waiting played an important role in the history of England.

I am proud to announce that I have been selected to be the Lady In Waiting to Queen Isis of Lovelynx of London England! Lovely Queen Isis is expecting her first royal offspring in four to five weeks time. I will often be sitting beside her in her royal chambers to tend to her comfort until that time. I am particularly delighted if she has Princess kitties, one might be named after me!

This past week, I have helped Queen Isis by fluffing her pillows, clearing away empty yogurt tubs and seeing to it that she does not eat too much of her ox liver snacks. She has a ravenous appetite and needs extra meals and treats to keep her ickle kittens health and happy inside the royal belly. If you would like to pay your respects during this deliCAT, please leave your calling card and I will prepare some catmint tea for you during your visit. Please keep it short so as not to tire Queen Isis to much.

Last night I was honored by ADAN with this beautiful colorful award. This evening it came again from CASPER. I am humbled and do not even know what to say. There are so many of you kitties who deserve this award so much more than I...every one of you who faithfully make the rounds each day to spread cheer and scatter joy all about like catnip...This is one award that should be on each of your blogs and I hope to see it there with time. In case you might like to know the story of where this award started, go visit
DIAMOND from Australia.
I will pass this award on to these kitties who I know will select many more deserving recipients:
there that should be a great start!

What's new with Mew? It's nice and simple, all you need to do is tell everyone 3 things that are new with you! Link it back to Tigmuthep and the purrson who gave it to you (which was THE SLY CAT!) and pass it on to 3 more kitties you'd like to know more about!

I will show you three wonderful gifts that came this past week, these are my wonderful new things!

1} Luna sent mommy two tea bags from Germany and this beautiful card her mommy made. The wintery trees were planted by her Grandfather as he was a Forest Ranger. It is a vintage photo and mommy just adore this artistic card. The tea was yummy, it was called Winter Time. We savored it slowly with Spekulatzius cookies. Thank you so much Luna and Stefanie!

2} This beautiful wall size poster came from The SnowForest Family who live in Pakistan! One of the sweet kittens is on the front of the card. Have you ever seen a more lovely cat family? SO happy and content living with Caricature! If only their beautiful country had the peace of a cats heart... Thank you so much Omer, Snow, Forest and kittens Leo and Fairy!

3} Salt and pepper spice up our foods and now mommy can do it in vintage style! These adorable little jug shakers came from Kimo & Sabi's Mommykitty. They belonged to her family and are antiques...and she sent them to me for helping with babybean Kiera's shower!! Mommy almost fainted when she opened the box! They are a shade of purple that compliments our dinner and glass ware as you can see:) How purrrrfect is that? We are overjoyed and will treasure them always, thank you so much Mommykitty!

I wish to tag any kitty who might have three new things to tell us about!

This pretty scrapbook page was made for me by Dragonheart!

I have been tagged to do this meme by Ramses, Dorydoo, Fiona, Queen Snickers & Empress! Whew!

This meme is created by all of the kitties at http://petspics.blogspot.com/ The rules are, you have to post who tagged you and link back to them and to us! :) Then you have to tag 3 other kitties, beans, woofies, or any other assorted animals.What three things would you do that you have never done before, if you knew you wouldn't get caught, get in trouble, or suffer any consequences?

1} I would lick all the butter off of mommies English muffin, yummy!

2} I would have a tea party with mommies special Peter Rabbit miniature tea set and invite all my dearest friends to sleep over afterwards.

3} I would go to London and see the Queen and ask her why there are no kitties at Buckingham Palace! Corgies are cute, but a Royal needs a kitty under her chair.

It has been snowing here at the cozy cottage since last night. We have about nine inches of snow on the ground. That means no trip to Portland tomorrow! So mommy cough and sniffle and I can nap and watch the snow all day long...

Hmmmm this looks a little like me up there, don't you think so?

Sassy Cat invited me to a work camp for cheer leading. I think I did pretty good considering my team is unbeaten all season!!! Thank you Sassy for the colorful poster!

Doesn't this painting look like our beloved Princess?
All of the art today is from artists of different medias helping out with the cost of care for the FORECLOSURE CATS in Cincinnati Ohio. They were all abandoned by a horrible man who just walked away from his house, after it was foreclosed upon, and he left them to starve! The art was auctioned of on eBay last week.
This one is named...you guessed it...PEACH
Some kitties were to weak to make it back to health after they were rescued. Even they were remembered on the art!
Mommy really likes the beaded one above with the handmade glass leaves.

This has been a busy week for us all and we are sorry we have not come visiting much. To top it all off, mommy went and got herself a cold last night. I told her it is cold enough as it is, she did not have to go out and get another one!

Saturday, January 26, 2008


Today I am sleeping on a bed of roses...this is mommies special micro bead pillow. She is still decluttering the house and just could not part with a favorite blouse made of very heavy silk.
So she turned it into a pillow slip.
Millie taught me to try everything new out first for A~1 quality, so I did. It past!!
This week I am sad and cried alot because I miss Caesar and I am happy because Gretchen's mommy bean came home!
I am also a little bit worried because my sweet Lapdaddy will be going to Portland for a visit with a doctor on Monday. He and mommy will be gone most all of the day and I will be home all alone...
I do not like that at all.

Friday, January 25, 2008


Last night I had an accident in my fuzzy blue blanket. I was awfully cold while it was in the washing box. So I snuggled real close to my sweet Lapdaddy and he tucked me inside his flannel shirt where I felt warm and cozy even if I looked like a flop ear moggie.

We interrupt this winters regularly scheduled program to bring you...
A catnap, a cat bath, and hot outside pond sounds because at this moment the pond is frozen solid!

SOME MEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS to help reform a naughty kitty (not me:)

Here are some thoughts for you to ponder today as you look out on the world. I want you to smile and laugh today as you read these...A Tuxie cat with his new angel wings told me to tell you all that!

"After scolding one's cat one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word. And has filed it for reference."--Charlotte Gray

~Cat's New Year's Resolutions~

My human will never let me eat her pet hamster, and I am at peace with that.

I will not puff my entire body to twice its size for no reason after my human has finished watching a horror movie.

I will not slurp fish food from the surface of the aquarium.

I must not help myself to Q-tips, and I must certainly not proceed to stuff them down the sinks drain.

I will not eat large numbers of assorted bugs, then come home and puke them up so the humans can see that I'm getting plenty of roughage.

I will not lean way over to drink out of the tub, fall in, and then pelt right for the box of clumping cat litter. (It took FOREVER to get the stuff out of my fur.)

I will not stand on the bathroom counter, stare down the hall, and growl at NOTHING after my human has finished watching The X-Files.

I will not fish out my humans partial plate from the glass so that the dog can "wear" it and pretend to be my human. (It is somewhat unnerving to wake up, roll over in bed, and see the dog grinning at you with your own teeth.)

I will not use the bathtub to store live mice for late-night snacks.

I will not drag dirty socks up from the basement in the middle of the night, deposit them on the bed and yell at the top of my lungs (Burmese LOUD yowling) so that my human can admire my "kill."

I will not perch on my humans chest in the middle of the night and stare into her eyes until she wakes up.

We will not play Herd of Thundering Wildebeests Stampeding Across the Plains of the Serengeti over any humans bed while they're trying to sleep.

Screaming at the can of food will not make it open itself.

I cannot leap through closed windows to catch birds outside.

If I forget this and bonk my head on the window and fall behind the couch in my attempt, I will not get up and do the same thing again.

I will not assume the patio door is open when I race outside to chase leaves.

I will not back up off the front porch and fall into the bushes just as my human is explaining to his girlfriend how graceful I am.

I will not complain that my bottom is wet and that I am thirsty after sitting in my water bowl.

I will not intrude on my humans candle-lit bubble bath and singe my bottom.

I will not stick my paw into any container to see if there is something in it. If I do, I will not hiss and scratch when my human has to shave me to get the rubber cement out of my fur.

If I bite the cactus, it will bite back.

It is not a good idea to try to lap up the powdered creamer before it dissolves in boiling coffee.

When I am chasing my tail and catch my back leg instead, I will not bite down on my foot. This hurts, and my scream scares my human.

When it rains, it will be raining on all sides of the house. It is not necessary to check every door.

Birds do not come from the bird feeder. I will not knock it down and try to open it up to get the birds out.

I will not stuff my rather large self into the rather small bird feeder(with my tail hanging out one side) and expect the birds to just fly in.

I will not teach the parrot to meow in a loud and raucous manner.

The dog can see me coming when I stalk her.

She can see me and will move out of the way when I pounce, letting me smash into floors and walls. That does not mean I should take it as a personal insult when my humans sit there and laugh.

Yes, there are still two very large dogs in the backyard. There have been for several years. I don't have to act as if I've just discovered the Demon Horror of the Universe each time one of them appears in my window.

I will not play "dead cat on the stairs" while people are trying to bring in groceries or laundry, or else one of these days, it will really come true.

When the humans play darts, I will not leap into the air and attempt to catch them.

I will not swat my humans head repeatedly when she's on the family room floor trying to do sit ups.

When my human is typing at the computer, her forearms are *not* a hammock.

Computer and TV screens do not exist to back light my lovely tail.

I am a walking static generator.

My human doesn't need my help installing a new board in her computer.

I will not bring the city police to the front door by stepping on the speaker phone button and then the automatic 911 dial button.

I will not speed dial the overseas numbers.

I will not walk on the keyboard when my human is writing importante miognaioerp ga3qi4 taija3tgv aa35a.

Any critter that lives in the house (hamsters), stay in the house and any wild critters (frogs and earthworms) stay outside.

I am not allowed to set the hamster free in exchange for finding a frog to put in the fish tank.

I will not stalk the deer in the apple orchard next door.

They have sharp hooves and could hurt me if they weren't laughing so hard.

I will not watch the guinea pig constantly as the guinea pig likes to sleep once in a while.

The goldfish likes living in water and should be allowed to remain in its bowl.

I will not put a live mole in my food bowl and expect it to stay there until I get hungry.

I will not eat spider plants and hallucinate behind the toilet.

I will not drag the magnets (and the papers they are holding up) off of the refrigerator and then bat them underneath it so that they adhere to the underside.

I will learn to relax at the vet's office so they will start writing things in my records like "Good Kitty" and "Sweet Kitty" instead of the stuff that's there now like "MEAN!!" "BITER!!!" and "GET HELP!!!!!"

I will not be miffed at my human all day and then kiss her on the nose at 2:00 a.m. to tell her that she is forgiven and can now pet me.

I will not scratch the children of lawyers, no matter how much they chase me or how hard they pull my tail.

If I MUST claw my human, I will not do it in such a fashion that the scars resemble a botched suicide attempt.

If I must give a present to my humans overnight guests, my toy mouse is much more socially acceptable than a big live cockroach, even if it isn't as tasty.

I will not soak my catnip toy in the water bowl to make tea.

I will not get high and sit there drinking my tea and kneading the floor afterwards.

I will not then get delusions of grandeur and make tea in the toilet bowl or the tub.

And I will not try to make tea with used socks, dirty panties or hair scrunches when my humans take the catnip toy away from me.

A warm pepperoni pizza is not a good place for a nap.

These skates are for Princess' mommy...
below are from a car in Nova Scotia
Lets sweep the walk and feed the birds...
then come inside the cozy cottage for tea...
and lets look out the windows to watch what falls from the heavens...
Snowflakes on the hood of our van. Bigafy and you can see the amazing pretty details of the different flakes!

My post today is dedicated to Casper and his mommy. They always cheer me with the scriptures on their blog . Casper wished for snow for his mommy to enjoy. I found a little at the cottage here one day and saved it...

****The Snowflake*****

Before I melt, come, look at me!

This lovely icy filigree!

Of a great forest

In one night

I make a wilderness of white

By skyey cold

Of crystals made,

All softly, on your finger laid,

I pause, that you my beauty see;

Breathe, and I vanish instantly.

Walter de la Mare, 1873-1956

I will miss your happy face my beloved friend Caesar...

You have left to prepare a place for us...

You were the bravest Mancat I ever met!
Living a quiet life with those you love...

With GREAT courage in the face of trials...

Each colorful day,
you brightened it even more!
A friend to all...
Full of adventure when your days were new...
with your beloved Princess as kittens you two!
Always a splendid mancat,
gazed out across your world.
Thank you for the pleasure we had knowing you were in our lives...
Your big shadow remains never to be filled, like the void in our heavy hearts...

Don’t say, We have come now to the end. White shores are calling.

You and I will meet again. And you’ll be here in my arms, just sleeping.
What can you see,on the horizon? Why do the white gulls call? Across the sea, a pale moon rises. The ships have come, to carry you home.
