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.

 Of all the wonders of spring and the renewal of Gods promise...we love Easter!
 The cozy cottage is dressed in her finest floral garb.

 Childhood was wonderful on Easter Sunday....once mommy got a new pair of roller skates but it rained all day long and she could not go out!
 Here is our surprise!  Cole came to visit us!  Can you believe how long his pretty head furs are!

It is going to be a happy Easter for us...we wish you blessings on this resurrection Sunday...praise God for the empty tomb!

 Mommy made some of her special yummy Tuna fish salad....it is the best....people come from far and wide to have some of it.  I offered to be the taste tester...  I did not get the job!
 A friend made this funny graphic above and we also found the one below.  A white Devon Rex kitty who is going to help Uncle Donnie make America great again.

 In the meantime...a warm snugly flannel shirt and a fuzzy blanket are still needed at the cozy cottage.  It might be springtime...as you can see from the sweet treat mommy got from a lovely lady friend who came to have some tea, but there is still a chill that we need to ward off.  The butterfly is edible...but all I wanted to do is play with it.  The mommy ate the whole cupcake, flutterby and all!  Wishing you all a beautiful start to this long awaited spring season...stay happy.

Mommy could never hold me like Lapdaddy can...I will not let her...whenever she does, I get my face washed or have to take a bath or get my ears cleaned.  My Lapdaddy just hold me tight and I do not have to worry about anything.  Life is good...spring will be here this month, and the snow is finally gone.  Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead...love little Miss Hope, safe in the arms of love.

 tickle my toes...

So my mommy is a traitor...I caught her watching dogs on the Westminster Dog Show TV thingy... so I watched just to see what the fascination might be.  Well....one poor dog didn't have any furs...others had dreadful dreadlocks...some you could not tell the front from the backside...some breeds we never even heard of.  Mommy drooled over the Basset hound...she should drool over me!  Oh well...this only happens once a year.  She was glad the German Shepard won best in show...
Happy Sunday everyone...

 We are sorry that we have been gone from our bloggy for so long.  Mommies Laptop was broken and spent a long time at Mr. Fixit's workshop.  I have to cuddle up next to mommy now wrapped in her big soft fuzzy sweater so I can still be close to her.  I liked having that thing gone because I got to spend all my time on her lap.
 Some silly grooming pictures...I had an itch and I needed my cheek rubbed.
 After all that work, a cat needs a hearty snack...
 I got a nice new blanket...it is so soft and the colors match mine...
 Sorry we are becoming so very boring...the winter is for hibernating and we seem to be doing a spot on job of it.  Maybe some sunshine can wake us up....but we had another snow storm this week.  Mommy bought me a new little heaty pad for my bed...the old one broke and stopped keeping me warm...mommy did not know it for a few day and felt bad that I was cold.  I slept in her bed all night until she finally figured it out. 
We hope you are keeping well and happy and thank you for remembering us...we treasure all of your visits and the comments you leave us.

 I am sitting on mommies cozy spot...using up the warmy she left when she got up to go and make a cuppa coffee.
 Now I wait here on the arm of the sofa for her to come back....then I snuggle up in her lap...and make it hard for her to drink her coffee...she has to hold her cup the whole time because she has tooooo much (crap) important stuff on her little table.  Except the snackies in the little heart shaped dish of course....wishing you all a wonderful Sunday and a great week ahead...it is going to get stormy in Washington DC for a while.

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!
