If there’s anything I learned at the Internet Cat Video Festival, it was that acting, art, comedy, and words are all overshadowed by a face, even if it is a grumpy one. People identify with faces, and for that reason, we at Catinthefridge.com have paired with photographer Victoria Sprung to bring you our very first photo shoot from Tree House as part of our BlogPaws/Halo/Freekibble.com Adoption Champion project. Please pass these photos around; that’s what they’re for. Share them with anyone and everyone you know to help us prove that beautiful photos help make beautiful relationships through adoption. And let us try to find little Coda Coda a permanent, loving home.
Name: Coda Coda
Occupation: Medical Miracle
Coda Coda was found abandoned in an apartment with his mother and five litter mates. All of these little fellows were undernourished, but Coda seemed to get the worst of it. With an eye infection and what turned out to be a liver shunt, Coda Coda had to fight very hard to live. Maybe he’s a cheapskate, because it was obvious he didn’t want to waste even one of his 9 lives, and through illness after illness, eye surgery, and multiple medical challenges, Coda Coda stabilized and is ready for a happy life. Due to the severity of his eye infection, Coda had to have his eye removed. The result? A constant cute little wink. His malnutrition left him with stunted growth. The result of that? He’ll be forever the size of a kitten, although he prefers the term “Fun-size.”
Now wandering the first floor of Tree House, Coda Coda has made friends with Whitman, one of the other physically damaged kitties at the shelter. He scurries around the floor looking for trouble, or maybe love. Who can say? Coda will always need to take medication for his condition, so he needs to find someone that is willing to help him with that. He enjoys snuggles, other cats, and sparkly objects. So, who’s ready to take Coda Coda into their home? He’s got his lamb and blankey, his optimistic attitude, and a face no one can forget. I’m pretty sure that means he has the makings of an internet star.
