Lately I’ve been keeping a small sketchbook in our bed, to draw our cat Cody’s wild poses!
She loves to sleep ON me, sprawled out like the town drunk, totally relaxed.
I was trying to have a rest day, and then she lay on my face!
She likes to be supported by one of my hands.
Like me, Cody doesn’t balance very well, and needs to rest A LOT.
I made these drawings lying down because of terrible vertigo and fatigue from POTS, so they are not very good, but they capture some of Cody’s loving nature anyway, I think.
Cody came to us through a kind of back channel rescue team, from a town outside Berlin.
Cody had been feral for some unknown amount of time.
She was discovered by Erika among the “Free Cats”. Erika and her husband, both 80, feed the Free Cats at the Futterstelle every single day.
Cody was injured by some forest villain.
Erika saw her hobbling towards the food stand, and said that’s it, we’re taking her home, even though we already have six cats (in German of course). Cody liked living inside very much! She didn’t want to go back outside at all! She just wanted to sleep in the bed and cuddle!
A cat so loving needed a family all her own.
So Erika and Andrea found her a forever home (FÜRIMMERZUHAUSE), with us!
