Arrival Story: I found Cody being given away in a Kmart parking lot in 1998. I wasn't looking for another cat, but there he was so beautiful and he was so calm. For a cat that was being given to anyone that wanted him. I had walked by him, and than turned around to take one last look. I feel in love with Cody and brought him home. Although the person giving him away said he was a girl. I thought I had a extra large girl cat! But a boy was ok too. The years went by fast and soon Cody was not feeling so good. He stopped eating and we took him to the Vets only to find out he had malignent cancer in the last stage. We spent a few days with him, and knew his quality of life was very bad. He no longer could get up and move around, nor eat and was crying out in pain even with medication. So we took him to the Vets. Cody was a wonderful cat and friend. We will miss him forever.
Bio: Cody loved to eat and he outweighed his "brothers" by many pounds. Because I was worried about his health, we put him on a prescription diet. He barely lost a few ounces over the last few years of his life until he had the cancer. He lost several pounds before he died, and it was not due to his diet. Cody also stopped eating. He couldn't eat beause of the cancer in his intestines were blocking the food from being absorbed. Cody never complained. We barely knew he was sick. Cody loved taking long naps and he also wanted his "food" on time when he was able to eat it. That meant he would chase us around the kitchen until he was fed or bite our feet. For such a big cat, Cody was very gentle and kind to everyone. I have to say Cody was certainly a loving and kind "friend" to have. We miss him so much, some days I can't stand not having him here.
