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.

On this special day I would like to honor my dear Lapdaddy for his creativity and his loving heart with the 'Kreativ Blogger Award' I got from Jill last week.

Many of us have been touched by stories of feral kitties. Some of us have been chosen as caregivers after our hearts have been melted by those hungry eyes. The cozy cottage is no exception when Miss Hunny Bunny showed up last summer with three of her tiny kittens. Mr. Buddy added himself to the family at the same time, so we assume he is the daddy. We took to Hunny Bunny right away because of her incredible beauty and her trusting nature. The kittens and parents were then spayed and neutered, except the Elusive kitten who got away. One day we hope it will come to trust us too so we can help it. We do not know if it is a boy or girl cat. This summer a new face showed up in the garden with two little black kittens. Miss Scrappy Cat, who has no manners at all and is ALL attitude! So what do you do when you are chosen? Being an only cat, I do not like to share my beans with anyone else but mommy and Lapdaddy said we have to be kind to those who wander through our lives asking for help. So I agreed that Lapdaddy could build a large cat shelter with three condo's in it so they could be warm and safe this winter. It is completely lined with 2 inch Styrofoam all around the inside and then puffed up high with fine clean straw so the kitties can burrow inside and make a cozy nest. Our garden has been certified a Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary and we strive to earn that honor. Food, shelter, protection and love are waiting....these are the spices of life we all need. We love you Lapdaddy for spicing up our lives!

Miss Peach, you and your folks are doing a fabulous job of looking after the ferals, and keeping them warm and dry over winter.

You truly are the best.

The Cozy Cottage Cat Sanctuary. How wonderful! Lapdaddy is just the Best for making such a wonderful home for kitties in need. I know taking care of all those kitties will keep Mommy Karla very busy, but it is a good, happy way to be busy.
Miss Peach, you are very sweet to share your beans with kitties that may never had known kindness otherwise.
Love to you all,

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

That is so great that your lapdaddy built that great condo for the kitties to live in - they will be toasty warm all winter I am sure!

Daddy did an excellent job with the shelter!
We wish Zolie would come in, but she's not anywhere ready to do that yet. So we provide for her as best we can.

I just love the house for the kitties. It is so cozy. Your lapdaddy is very creative and that house is so well crafted, this is just a beautiful addition to your backyard paradise. MissPeachy, you will be able to check on your feral friends. I bet the top flips open so your mom can check to make sure there are no illegals living in there too.
Love always MissPeachy. It is always so delightful to come to your blog and see what all of you are up to. Mom does not sit on the computer much these days, it makes her stiff, but I do love coming here very much
