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.

Thursday, January 10, 2008


Today is my 15th birthday! I am an old kitty lady but some days I still play like a kitten. I am so lucky to see this day. Last autumn I was so sick I almost died. All of you came to be with me day by day purrring and puraying for me....and I got better. That will ALWAYS be the greatest gift you could ever have given me even though my beloved Gizzy quilt Junior gave me comes close:) the photo above is my gift to mommy...I held still for her and the corsage she made for me. The pretty card below is her gift to me. It came from Pyewacket when mommy had her birthday last month. See how it matches my corsage...
This is my official birthday portrait and it is from the Studio of Karl & Ruis! I just love those frootbat armrests!
I am about to cut my cake and open my gifts. Which should I do first? My golden rose colored Victorian gown was designed by the Realm of Kattenpratt.
Please fill your pretty plates and dainty tea cups while we chat about the hosts of my wonderful party...Karl and Ruis. They are such nice friends and have treated me so well on this cruise. I have learned so much about Antarctica from them. Later they will show us all around the ship.
This special table below is set for those kitties who have gone on to the rainbow bridge. Those who we love and miss and remember in that deep place in our hearts. Gone but never forgotten...
I am ever so grateful for your nice visits to my blog and hope to be able to return the calling cards soon. Mommy is still doing the January declutter of the house...making jewelry and working on he big passion, the paper arts. She has been so busy that the new VICTORIA magazine that came out this month sits unopened on the end table. I think that is unheard of...sit down mommy , make me a lap and read your VICTORIA!! That is my birthday command!

Happy 15th Birthday Miss Peach! I'z got one very special little gift for you on this great day... I'z decided I'z going to name one of my future daughters after you as a mark of my admiration and deep respect for you as a grand Ladycat! When this litter arrives I'z going to have a good look at any girls and see which one should have "Peach" in her Pedigree name. Iffen I'z don't have a girl this time I'z going to keep looking and waiting until the right kittengirl comes along... One with a pretty peachy coloured belly and lovely eyes! :)

Many Happy Birthday purrs and good wishes,

I'm sure you will receive many visitors today and I hope you have lots of fun. I'll send my kitties over later. :) Yes Karla should take a break and make a lap. ;) Take time for little pleasures. Time passes so quickly.

Dear Miss Peach, we have not met (yet) but I found your blog just today and want to wish you a very Happy Birthday! You are a beautiful cat and a lovely color. I like your curly hair too. My own hair is very straight, and very thick and a little bit long.

We have at least one thing in common - both our mommies have red hair!

I wish you a wonderful year ahead, full of all the things you love the most. Now that I have found you, I would like to add a link to your blog to my sidebar. May I? And may I add your photo to my sidebar too?

Miss Peach, We have been having a wonderful time at your birthday party on the cruise ship with Karl & Ruis.

We've been in such a whirl today, what with Sassy just popping in to make sure we didn't miss the party, and seeing old friends and making new ones. But we want to be sure to tell you personally, Happy Birthday!

We are so glad to know you. Cotton met you at your tea party a couple of months ago, but this is the first time the rest of us have had the pleasure.

Be sure to rest up after all the excitement is over tonight.
