Today My Special Cuddle-Bug is TEN!!
Ten years ago a special kitty was born. A silver gray tabby, who didn't have a home, but had one of the most incredible foster Moms EVER. She said he was her favorite and she had named him "Prince."
The day I first saw Cody in July 2007, how foolish of me that initially he wasn't my first choice. My heart had been shattered by the passing of my 18-year old "soul-kitty", Bobo a mere two weeks before. I was more drawn to Cody's litter mate, a female, who was identical to Bobo. When I picked her up it was clear she wasn't the "one" for me. Nor was Cody's male litter mate.
My eyes then fell on the silver gray tabby who was jumping and prancing in the back of the cage with glee. I asked to hold him. From the moment he entered my arms, he DID NOT LET GO. He climbed up my chest and cuddled close. He did NOT want to be put down.
My precious boy climbed into my heart and is a "soul-kitty" in his uniquely "Cody" way.
Cody is fearless, loving, determined and takes everything in stride. He loves people. He greets all who enter our home. Not much rattles him. Not even his Sheltie brother when he barks in his face. He tolerates going to the Vet with no "singing the song of his people" in the car.
In ten years I have heard him hiss once. Cody is kind, and will happily show his belly to anyone who happens to be near, hoping they will take the time to pet it.
Happy, Happy 10th birthday to our feisty, silly, loving and precious boy. Thank you for CHOOSING ME and THANK YOU for all of the joy you bring EVERY DAY!
You are cordially invited to attend Cody's Colossal Cat Toy Birthday Give-Away this Monday, April 3rd. It is a world-wide give-away!!! See you there!
