Whoever adopts Codi will need a lot of patience and not be too concerned about scratched furniture, clawed drapes, or a cat licking your plate. In fairness to Codi, he has not climed the drapes since early June and has not taken food of foster mom's plate. She thinks he is growing up.
He is a wonderful kitten but he is also very active, demanding and somewhat destructive. He is a Lynx Point mix with a big, fluffy tail. His exact birth date is unknown but is estimated to be in May 2019 so he is a little over one-year-old. He was on death row in Texas and the Michigan transport driver was told if she did not take him, he would be euthanized that day. Of course, we had to take him and are happy we saved such a spirited kitten.
Codi says: “I am a very energetic and nosy cat. I want to experience everything, climbing up drapes, into cupboards, closets, the pantry, etc. I love toys, i.e., small stuffed mice, larger stuffed animals, fluffy balls, the laser pointer mouse, Ping-Pong balls, shoe laces with the plastic ends cut off, etc.
I used to want to taste EVERYTHING foster mom eats. Now, I am not that interested, except for peanut butter. I also love to eat plastic bags, i,e, grocery, dry cleaners, garbage, zip-lock, etc. I enjoy chewing on paper napkins, pieces of newspaper, toilet paper and paper towels. I sometimes chew on computer wires, cable wires, earbud, etc.
I also have chewed on hard plastic, i.e. knife handles, laptop computers, remote controls, etc. But I have not done any of that lately. foster mom has given me rawhide chews and chew toys. I am not interested.
July1, 2020, foster mom notes that I am not as bad as I used to be.
I like to climb up on foster mom and rub noses while purring. I think I was taken away from my mom too soon and that is why I want to snuggle so much. However, I will not allow foster mom to pet me when she wants to and without my permission; I try to bite her but when she says firmly, "No biting" I listen, after trying one more bite. For that reason, I cannot go to a home with small children.
Foster mom has corrected this behavior about 100 times but I still do it. It is not a hard or a mean bite, just a warning.
To clarify: If I say "No biting," Codi will almost immediately stop biting and start licking my hand. The bites are not serious.
I get along well with the two female cats in the home. Storm is a shy cat and we have a relationship of polite indifference along with occasional sniffs and licks but no visible hostilities. I eat all her food if foster mom does not put it away. Storm is too timid to object.
Spice Girl and I play a lot, chasing each other up and down the stairs, wrestling, pouncing on each other, etc. Sometimes, it gets a little rough but nothing really serious. I also eat her food if foster mom is not fast enough putting it away."
Foster mom says Codi is a delightful, entertaining cat but he is also rather naughty and willful. Foster mom has many years of experience with cats but she has never had a cat that prentends to be deaf when she is scolding him.
All MISR cats are spayed or neutered, current on rabies and distemper, FIV/FELV tested, and all known health issues have been addressed. Codi’s adoption fee is $150 and he is located in a foster home in Howell MI.
