Our sweet dog, Rocky, made his journey to the Rainbow Bridge today at the age of 14. You can read about him and what happened this past week in his Dogster diary.

Love you forever, Rocky!

Premio Meme Award!

Thanks to Jill at Just Me Jill for the Premio Meme Award. The rules of the award are to share seven facts about myself and then pass the award to seven others.

So, I thought I'd share seven facts about The Cat in the Clover!

1. The Cat in the Clover was named after my kitty Violet. Before Violet became an indoor cat, he loved following me around in the yard while I worked. We have a lot of clover at the back of our property, and one day while he was out with me, the name popped into my head.

2. The Cat in the Clover evolved into an Etsy shop. It has had previous lives: Princess Birthday Parties, and DVD slideshows set to music.

3. It is very rewarding to see a customer snoozing on one of my beds or in a snooze sack.

4. I wish there were more hours in the day to spend on creating items for the shop.

5. The furry supervisors in the house love helping with the creations!

6. It is hard to resist any fabric with cats on it!

7. Our Catster friends have been so supportive, and we love all of them!

I'll pass the award on to the cat blogs I love:

1. Beaded Tail

2. 365 Cat Ladies

3. Jake & Micah - Adventures in Catnip

4. All About Cats

5. Alley Cat Rescue

6. Jeter Harris

7. Purr Prints

Happy 4th of July!

Hoping your 4th of July holiday is full of fun and doesn't involve crazy hats, boas, or sinks (although Newman looks super cute in any of these)!
