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.

When I first saw these photos I could not believe my eyes!
A butterfly with CLEAR wings!
My Mickey Moonshine has a royal visitor...
Derby's mommy snapped this wonderful Monarch butterfly...
What type of exotic butterfly is this?
Sunflowers are in full bloom right now...

What is your favorite butterfly? Ours is the Mourning Cloak...
Just when the CATerpillar thought it came to the end of it's life....
it turned into a beautiful butterfly!

Have a wonderful Sunday and keep your eye out for a butterfly...!

Ever since we found that Hunny Bunny had 3 little mites we have been worried about them all.
Now we have a glimmer of HOPE and HOPE the phone rings soon. The ladies from POPP are going to help work out a plan for us to help them. POPP stands for Pet Over Population Prevention. They are a wonderful local rescue group of volunteer animal lovers and have rehomed 478 animals in 2007!
I know Hunny Bunny is a very special cat who trusts me...I pray I do not disappoint her...

This was mommies favorite coffee mug...she broke the handle off...now it is a cat food scoop. Can you see Hunny Bunny with her electric blue eyes on it?
She really does look just like it...complete with a Madame Pierre Ronsard!Lapdaddy moved out one fence picket so we can entice the mites over to begin solid food. As of today, it is working. They still run when we approach, but tiny kittens steps at a time is how we hope to get them tame.
Hunny Bunny is such a good mommy. She lets the mites eat before she even considers taking one bite for herself. I took these photos through the window to the side yard.
"Thank you for feeding me and my kittens"

Please purrrrrr for my special friend TEXAS as he is not doing very well with his battle...this is so hard to go through for him and his family. We love you and send our best prayers...

I like my new velvet covered cushion so much. Mommy made it's cover from a shirt she bought at Goodwill...she loves to recycle things. Did you know that I am a recycled cat? Anyway, back to the cushion. The first night the foam was too wide to fit the shelf very well. When I woke up, I walked to the edge and the cushion tipped off. I fell into the litter girls room below. Gosh how awful! Mommy then trimmed the foam to fit the shelf and I have not come down off of it, except to eat of course! I like it because it is pretty, warm and very soft...kinda like me! I wonder if mommy will ever run out of places for me to sleep in, at, or on? Tell me where you love to sleep best....

Please join me in wishing NOT THE MAMA happy MODAY today! Our dear friend Morgen (Mo) has done so much for kitties and their humans and we wanted to recognize him for all that he's done - rescuing strays, fostering, fundraising, donating, working so very hard with the CFHF and the CB, helping his local rescue organizations, and being the kind-hearted and wonderful guy that he is.

CAT ART SUNDAY with guest artist LORIANNA

Today I want to show you a very special artwork. This piece touches my heart in so many ways. It is made by Billie's mommy Lorianna from Twilight's Muse. She loves to make artwork even when her hands are giving her painful days. If you look close, there are faeries with stardust...butterflies holding court on the blue leather paper...and do you see Mickey Moonshine and me?
When someone makes you something special, they put their heart into it because they love you. I am a lucky cat to be so loved. Thank you Lorianna for the 'Faerie Kitty' page....I am getting such a nice scrapbook together thanks to so many of you.
If you look close at my furs, you can see how clean and pretty it is. I just had a bath:( To console me, mommy gave me another NEW place to sleep...a three inch velvet covered cushion. I think this is a bribe because of Hunny Bunny and the rest of that furry clan!...OK I like it! I wish all of you a beautiful Sunday full of love and sweet tiny moments.

Mommy and I were very touched by this message we found posted on the Blogosphere...we will never forget his bravery in the great fire as her saved his sisters...so here is my HUG A CAT photo...this little Cinderella is my Grandbean Ellie Grace. She came to see me tonight and I fell in love with her hugs! Imagine that, me, a cranky old cat laying still and purring on her tiny lap. I went to be with her all on my own with no prompting!! She almost took me home with her...but mommy would miss me so much and not have a cat to hug.
