Smile and Say Cheeze!

At my Cat in the Clover Etsy shop, I'm making crocheted Calvin Collars for cats in memory of Calvin. One dollar from each collar is being set aside, and when $25 is reached, a cat is being sponsored at Best Friends Animal Society.

Meet our first sponsored cat - Cheeze!

Here is what Best Friends says about Cheeze:

Just say Cheeze! If you have a chance to visit Cheeze at the Colonels here at the sanctuary, he may decide that you can touch him; but don't even try to pet him! This beautiful kitty grew up on the big city streets and never learned to bond with people, so he likes to keep his distance.

His favorite treat is cat cheese - that's how he got his name. If he had a second name, it would be Curiousity. That's because, while he keeps his distance, he's fascinated by people and everything they do. That's how de decided it might be fun to start touching people. He just hasn't gotten around to being petted yet!


I hope this is one of many orange kitties we can sponsor in Calvin's memory. Thank you to all our pawsome Catster friends who have helped make this a reality!

We love that you are doing this in memory of one the the greatest orangies that ever lived, our pal Calvin.

Purrs and love, Ray and Busby

I'm with Jenn on this one. You are inspirational Laura. No matter what happens you always seem to rise up and make the most of it. I don't know how you do it.

Poor Cheeze, never even touched. How sad to live his entire life on the streets. At least now his day to day existance should be much less stressful!

I'm so happy that Rufus was able to help sponsor that beautiful orange boy. We miss Calvin.
