Facts about Cody

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
(FYI: This is a courtesy listing for a cat who is currently in a foster home in a southeast suburb of Cleveland rather than at the Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary.) Cody, a handsome, rather large, short-haired orange cat who is one-to-2 years old, was abandoned last summer and then rescued by a nice lady who has nurtured him these many months. They love and cuddle with each other, but the lady has to relocate and can’t take Cody with her. Cody is neutered and vaccinated, is very good about using his litter box, and delights in playing with toys and chasing a laser beam, but he tested “positive” for exposure to FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus). He may or may not become affected by this immune-compromising virus in the future, and some FIV-positive cats have lived to a ripe old age. FIV isn’t communicable to any other species except cats – and that’s only via sexual intercourse or deep bite wounds (neither of which would be a problem with Cody). However, many adopters would prefer for an FIV-positive cat to be the only cat in their home, or to adopt an FIV-positive cat if they already have one or more of them already in their home – and either of those scenarios would be good for Cody. If interested, please call 440.759-0076.

About Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary

About Our Shelter...

The mission of the Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary is to provide loving, life-long care and support to abandoned, neglected, abused, and orphaned cats, regardless of age or physical condition. We provide or arrange for: shots, spaying/neutering and other veterinary care ; food, water and shelter; adoptions; and follow-up adoption support . If the cats are not adopted, they are still cared for and loved for the rest of their lives.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We arrange for potential adoptions by appointment at the shelter, because the sanctuary's founder & director Jeanne Bones has to supplement the facility's income by doing "pet sitting " work (cleaning, feeding, etc.) at people's homes. We sometimes do adoption events elsewhere, but we mostly publicize our adoptable cats via pet-oriented websites.

Our Adoption Process...

Fees usually range from $50-$65 (which also covers altering, shots, testing, etc.). We have people fill out a form that is both an adoption application and agreement. (There is no fee for just applying.) We ask for the adopter's name, address, work and home (and cell) phone numbers, their vet 's name and number, number and ages of children and/or other pets, and the names and phone numbers of at least two personal references. To protect the cat...If the adoption doesn't work out, we give a full refund if the cat is returned to us, even if a lot of time has passed since the date of the adoption.
