MISS PEACH'S COZY COTTAGE

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.

CAT ART SUNDAY ON THE FIRST ADVENT

Tonight we light the first Advent candle. It seems so early this year as time is racing by. We just ate turkey and now we are making out our wish lists for Christmas. My list will have Party Mix and a plea for homes for each and every kitty who needs one. That some angels gather up all the strays and put them in Santa Claws sled so he can place them in their forever homes. Homes that have warm cozy fireplaces and saucers of milk, dishes of kitty kibble, clean litter boxes and soft squishy laps to sit on...that is my dearest wish. Maybe they can start with Hunny Bunny....oh that was not gracious of me I am afraid...sorry mommy but out of the meows of cats comes the truth. This pretty Victorian kitty tag came in a sketchbook that mommy got yesterday from her art club...I think she looks just like Hunny Bunny...what do you think?
Hunny Bunny admiring the cat art down low on the wall by the dinner tray....
Pretty soon the kittens will be snuggled all sound in their bed while visions of sugarmousies dance in their heads....
Many thanks to dear Ann at Zoolatry for our newly decorated Christmas cottage!! See me on the chimney watching Santa Claws?
I am wishing all of you a wonderful first December week...

A THANKFUL FRIDAY...

I am thankful that I still get to sleep in my dome...mommy took away the litter and gave me paper towels in case I have an accident. I have been real good so far and using the garage litter box. SO mommy put my heated pad under the towels...I am happy... A plate of turkey to share with Scrappy Cats two black kittens...
The Elusive Kitten is licking his chops....
Mommy and Lapdaddy had a small dinner by themselves...
Ahhhhh turkey makes me sleeeeeeeepy.........
A flock of purple finches came to visit today and helped themselves to a bounty of dogwood berries...
We have three trees full so I hope they come back...
Today I am still thankful for so many things...that mommy loves me so much and gives me 15 sleeping spots to chose from...that she is patient with my eccentric ways...that I get Fancy Feast while Hunny Bunny eats dry munchie crunchies...that I will be 17 years old in January and Cole still thinks I am beautiful...that I have a wonderful husband cat in Mickey Moonshine...that mommies let me play in her bag of turkey feathers and best of all, that she did not get mad at me when I jumped up on the kitchen counter and landed right smack dab in the middle of her dinner plate and scooted peas all over the counter and splashed gravy all over the walls and my furs! She just said I was a dizzy old acrobatic cat and washed my paws off. Geeeze she could of just let me lick it off!!

WITH HUMBLE HEARTS WE THANK GOD...


Mommy is thankful that for a brief moment today, I was not in my litter box!


Wishing all of my beloved friends a wonderful reflective THANKSGIVING holiday....lots of turkey and yummy gravy...oh and eat your veggies too!
To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common -- this is my symphony.

MOODY MONDAY MADNESS!!!

We thank you for all the advice about the litter box problem...despite my best efforts, nothing has changed Misses Peach's mind about living inside the litter box. As you can see, it is not for lack of other nice warm fuzzy spots to sleep in. The green dome box came home yesterday to hopefully take the place of the litter box. The cord coming out of it is for a nice heated pad. We are hopelessly frustrated by Peachy's stubborn mindset! She is eating and drinking normal...just in a mood to drive us all a little more crazy here at the cozy cottage...it is not easy to live with a neurotic cat! Oh and this behavior began B4 Hunny Bunny ever came inside the house! SIGH.....

CAT ART SUNDAY~Unforgettable 11/22/63

46 years and his words still burn in my heart...his courage inspires...his flame burns forever...
For Cat Art Sunday I want to show you mommies new coffee mug she found at Goodwill for a few quarters! Isn't it just so colorful...she likes it because it has a couple of ginger kitties on it that are not in the litter box...
Mr. Whiskers mommy Roberta sent me this beautiful wedding card all the way from Hawaii.
Mickey and I went to Maui once and spent some wonderful time on the beach...
Wishing all of you a wonderful week...be thankful and reflective as you count your many blessings. Never forget those who went to prepare the way for you.

John F. Kennedy: at American University: June 10, 1963
"What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana, enforced on the world by American weapons of war, not merely peace for Americans, but peace for all men and women; not merely peace in our time, but peace for all time. I speak of peace as the necessary rational end of rational men. I realize that the pursuit of peace is not as dramatic as the pursuit of war, and the words of the pursuers frequently fall on deaf ears, but we have no more urgent task. Too many of us think peace is impossible, but that is a dangerous defeatist attitude. It leads to the conclusion that war is inevitable, that mankind is DOOMED! We cannot accept that view. Our problems are manmade therefore they can be solved by man. Man has often solved the seemingly unsolvable and we believe they can do it again. I am not referring to the absolute, infinite concept of universal peace and goodwill of which some fantasies and fanatics dream. Let us focus instead on a more practical, more attainable peace, based not on a sudden revolution of human nature, but on a gradual evolution of human institutions. Genuine peace must be the product of many nations. It must be dynamic, not static, changing to meet the challenge of each new generation. For peace is a process, a way of solving problems. World peace, like community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor, it requires only that they live together in mutual tolerance, submitting their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement. Peace need not be impossible and war need not be inevitable. By defining our goal more clearly, by making it seem more manageable and less remote, we can help all people to see it, to draw hope from it, and to move irresistably towards it. Let us not be blind to our differences, but let us draw attention to our common interests, and the means by which those differences can be resolved. For our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children's future, and we are all mortal. Nuclear powers must avoid those confrontations which bring an adversary to a choice of a humiliating retreat or a nuclear war. To adopt that kind of course in the nuclear age would be evidence only of the bankruptcy of our policy or a collective death wish for the world. We must seek to strengthen the United Nations, to make it a more effective instrument for peace, capable of resolving disputes on the basis of law, of ensuring the securtity of the large and the small and of creating conditions under which arms can be abolished. Our primary long range goal is general and complete disarmament, designed to take place in stages, permitting parallel political developments to build the new institutions of peace, which would take the place of arms. Is not peace, in the last analysis, basically a matter of human rights? The right to live out our lives without fear of devastation, the right to breathe air as nature provided it, the right of future generations to a healthy existence? While proceeding to safeguard our national interest, let us also safeguard human interests, and the elimination of war and arms is clearly in the interest of both. Confident and unafraid let us labor on - not towards a strategy of annihilation, but towards a strategy of peace."

SOMETIMES LIFE IS JUST CRAPPY...


Well of all the nerve!!!!
I have my PJ's on and I should be able...
to sleep wherever I want to!!
and not in front of the fireplace like mommy wants!

Here is a letter I wrote to my sister Princess: "I am happy Prinnnnniecurrrrrlypants! But I am crazy...I will not come out of the litter box! Mommy said life is crappy in there but I don't care! I got a bath last night and for a split second mommy thought I would stay in the new bed in front of the fireplace....just long enough until my furs were dry....then....yep, you guessed it ....back to the crapper. Lapdaddy has his own idea on the subject and I am talking about it today...I hope you still love me...your silly sister Peachy (who won't be smelling like one for long)"
It is true....I got a bath...just look at how dirty the water is! I am not amused at all as you can see. Lapdaddy cleaned and changed out the litter in my litter box haven and mommy tried her best to tempt me to stay in the new kitty cube she outfitted with a sweet Pooh Bear blanket that The Sherwood and the Taylor Catss sent me for Easter. Mommy even covered the cube with Miss Peggy's lace confection to make it extra pretty. Well, I stayed long enough for my furs to dry and then...well you know the rest of the story already. Mommy is going to start drinking Egg Nog soon with rum in it....and blame her gray head furs on me! Lapdaddy thinks I am having a problem consumating my marriage to Mickey. He says the bride usually goes into the bathroom to freshen up for the special night. Sometimes a bride gets nervous and begins to cry and will not come out! I have been screaming a lot lately, come to think of it. Oh dear, I am afraid I might need some kitty prozac...

CREATIVE COMPLIMENTS OF THE SEASON.....

Mommy needs this today!!! German Stollen and some spiked tea!
I am afraid I am the reason why...because I won't come out of the litter box...I won't I won't I won't!!! Well, except to eat and drink anyway...
So we might as well get the holiday season started anyway....
This is what mommy wants me to do right now...sit beside her next to the fireplace with the tea kettle on...
and get happy to be in a festive mood...making fun things...


So this is what has caught mommies eye! A vintage style Christmas bulb wreath that is as easy as 1 2 3 to make out of a coat hanger and all the colored bulbs you wish to put on it! We all have an overflow of them I am sure. What a wonderful way to display those treasure's from Grandma's days....
You will need a glue gun, about 80 bulbs and a nice big ribbon to top it off!
Select a color combination if you so chose...or go pastel...or stick with your favorite shade and select matte and shiny...the pawsibilities are endless...the link below will take you to a picture tutorial. Go and have some fun...

CAT ART SUNDAY~It is me!!!!

This Cat Art Sunday I want to show you how far it has come at the cozy cottage with the white gimpy tailed fuzzball! I am ready to ship her off to Seaborne at the Taylor Catss house! She has made herself way to comfortable on mommies bed...and just look at her there on MY KITTY sheet!!! I haven't even slept on it yet!! (Mommy here, "You decided to sleep in the litter box Peachy...it is your choice!") Well of all the nerve...anyway I would rather be in Germany with my husband Mickey, so come and visit our wedding blog to see our newest adventure.
Excuse me now while I go and sit on my new wedding quilt that Mindy & Moe from Team Tabby sent to me...
Don't I look purrrrrrfect on the stunning colors? It will make a beautiful rug for our cozy home once we get all of our wedding gifts moved in...we will have a big house warming party to thank you all for the lovely things you have given us....
Yes, it is true! It is really me! My wonderful friends the Sherwood Cats and the Taylor Catss had their friend make this china kitty in my image. Even my long skinny tail is purrrrfect. This is the most special mini me I have!Wishing you a wonderful Sunday surrounded by love, warmth and happiness...oh and Party Mix of course!
