When Reddit user NO_NOT_THE_WHIP chanced upon a kitten adoption post from a fellow user in his city, he didn’t believe he’d come across it in time to act.
“I had been tossing around the idea of adopting a pet soon, but surely someone would have already taken this cute little guy by now since the post was a few days old.”
Regardless, he went ahead and contacted /u/netbich, the poster, to get a little information about the kitten.
To his surprise, the adorable kitty was still available, but had very little time left with /u/netbich, his foster mom, before he had to return to the animal shelter.
The kitten’s name was Cody and he had been rescued from a recently incarcerated criminal’s home along with his siblings.
All of Cody’s siblings had been adopted and he was the last feline left behind due to his malnourished state.
NO_NOT_THE_WHIP took pity on him and brought him home, but the fearful kitty darted under a recliner immediately, fearful of his new environment.
Thankfully, he summoned up the courage to come out the next day and greet his owner – an act he has been repeating ever since.
NO_NOT_THE_WHIP told Top13 the following about his affectionate cat:
“He loves me very much, never leaving my side when I am home.
When I come home from work he is always napping by the front door waiting for me to return. Aava is very kind and friendly, I could never have asked for a better kitten. If I were given the chance to pick any cat in the world I would still pick Aava. I love him very much and look forward to our years together.”
This kitten was renamed Aava – a tribute to a certain giant snow tiger recognizable to most fans of the ‘Dark Souls’ franchise.
He may not be a true snow tiger, but he’s definitely a cool cat!
