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 is freezing cold here in Washington...has not been this cold and wintery since 1979 here!  We are keeping warm here...mommy is dreading when the power bill comes next month.  We live in the desert area and are not used to such harsh winters...  Mommy is doing all she can for the garden kitties...letting them live on our covered patio....sleeping on the daybed on a heated pad inside the Rubbermaid container.  Making sure they have fresh food and water each day...Lion come for his pets and scritches like a good boy.  That makes us so happy inside.  We purrrr real hard that all kitties have a safe spot someplace...this is a real hardship for stray animals.

 I spend all my time on mommies lap in the evening while she watches Sherlock on TV...or Downton Abby...I tuck in under her fuzzy jacket...I have to get up when she goes for a cuppa coffee...but I get right back up as soon as she sits down.
 Here is Lion and the Kitten on the cardboard where they get their food...mommy put it down so their paws do not get too cold while they eat.  Lion has been letting her brush him too....amazing that he is finally trusting mommy after sooooo many years!  Our hearts leap with joy!  Wishing you all warmth, peace and joy in this cold month.  Happy Martin Luther King day and Inauguration day this special week!

We pray and purr that this new year will bring much needed peace for our world and HOPE for our country!  This year we will take much more time for ourselves...do the things that feel good in a hurried world.  We will sleep lots more and drink coffee when we feel like it.  Just all in all count our many blessings and be thankful for another year to do things better than last...be kind to strangers and feed the hungry...two and four legged.  Our word for this year is "WILLING"....we will be willing to try new things...do you have a word to live by.  Happy Mew year to all my dearest friends near and far!

 A vintage blessing for the season....
 Mommies hometown Augsburg Germany...it is over 2000 years old and today need a very special blessing...please read here...over 54,000 people must evacuate their homes on this Christmas day so a 3 ton World War II bomb can be defused!
 The reason for this season!
 Hope, please look over here!
 OK I will look at the camera!
 This is what is being served today for CATmus Christmas dinner in my dish...come join me!
The cozy cottage wishes you the best Christmas you have ever had and that the New Year will bring you all that this year did not...love and warmth and health...peace for our world, HOPE for our country...and lots of snuggle and lap time with your beans!  Thank you for your treasured friendships and your many sweet comments when you visit...they lift us up...be blessed always!

It has been a very cold month so far in the desert around the cozy cottage.  Record lows of the century.  We are lucky that our heaters are keeping up with the demand of a cold nakked kitty.  At night I have taken to sleep under the featherbeds with mommy...we have two of them so that is good.  It is quiet at the cozy cottage this Christmas season...for the first time we will not be able to welcome our boy Cole home from Denver for the holidays.  His daddy lost his job this month, after the business closed down overnight.  Now 92 families will be without work.  This news came on the day that Donald Trump visited the Carrier factory to save their jobs...  We are so happy for those folks...while we will wait to see what the new year will bring for our family.  Thankful for so many things...our health is stable and we have a warm cottage with plenty of food.  Christmas will be kept tightly in memories of the past...in our hearts...
This lovely vintage kitty advent calendar Christmas card came last year after the holiday from our sweet friend Helena who lives in Colchester England...we are enjoying opening the tiny windows this season.

 Here I am sitting on mommies new old Tasha Tudor book that she bought herself for Christmas...waiting ever so patiently for my snackie box to open...
 Maybe if I help it along a bit...tap, tap, tap......
 well.....I am waiting...come on I have the munchies mommy!
 Finally.....wishing you all a wonderful advent Sunday.  Our hearts will rejoice in Christmases past this year and in thankfulness once again after so long, HOPE for our nation in the new year!

The night is freezing fast,
Tomorrow comes December;
And winterfalls of old
Are with me from the past
like snowflakes, no two cats will ever be alike...we remember each special fur that has touched our hearts...

I think that my profile is as beautiful as the Princess Grace...mommy thinks that our Lapdaddy looks just like the Prince Rainier....I think that means that we will live happily ever after together at the cozy cottage...wishing you all a magical Thanksgiving week...we are thankful for your treasured friendships...for your visits to say hello to us...for remembering us...blessings to all of you!

SAGA OF THE WEE TIMEROUS BEASTIE in the cozy cottage bathtub...

Mommy has been sick for a week now and she finally made her way to take a shower...as she drew back the curtain...I heard her scream!  Not being a brave kitty, I stayed in my bed and wished her well.  She was running around the house like crazy looking for someway to catch the intruder...Lapdaddy was not home...so she was on her own for sure.
 First she put a sticky trap in the tub!  WHAT WAS SHE THINKING...that was a dreadful idea!
 Then she got a big leather glove and chased that poor wee beastie around the tub until she caught it by the tail.
 I gave the intruder a once over inspection...it passed.  Mommy then took it out to the garden...
 and released the wee creature on the cobblestone walk path...it sat quiet for a while beside the rock as if reading the message.
So much adventure for one day was enough to send mommy back to bed (after she bleached the tub)...rest is the best medicine....the shower can wait.

ONCE UPON A MAGICAL TIME....long long ago...

This weekend is Halloween....we have spent 10 Halloweens here with you in bloggy and.  It is mommies favorite time of the fun holiday season.  Of all of those Halloween's....one stands out....October 31st 2009.  That was the day that our Miss Peach married her mister wonderfur Mickey the black cat.  It was an enchanting time in the blogosphere and so much was right with our world.  In this time of chaos it is good to turn back the clock and remember those gentle days...forever in our hearts.  Take this magical moment and look back over those times that were most special in your days gone by...  You can relive our special time by visiting the wedding blog...two old cats, one orange and one black,  who found love and made it matter!
