DOB 1/1/96 – 10/1/14
Cody and Missouri were rescued as a result of a divorce, in which they became the unwanted and abandoned dependents. They arrived here on January 21, 2000 and were filmed for Jack Hanna’s Wild Adventures which aired on May 6, 2000. Cody is very handsome. He and his mate Missouri, who has since passed on, are the only two Cougars at Big Cat Rescue that have solid black noses.
Cody is quite shy around people and will often retire to his cave den when visitors approach, he does however have a few Keepers that he is quite fond of and you can always see him acting fearless at dinner time.
Cody Cougar Had a Seizure
Cody is 18 years old and suffered a bad seizure. We brought him into the Cat Hospital for diagnostics to see if anything could be done to save his life.

I always felt so lucky when you would come out of your den for me. And your love of blood cicles!!! It was enrichment for me to watch you enjoy your treat. You are missed big boy. Enjoy your freedom and being able to cuddle with Missouri again.

Cody, you were often a challenge, but the reward of your friendship was beyond measure. I’m so happy that towards the end I think I earned your trust a little bit while giving you meds. I’ll never forget the intensity of your stare and how strikingly handsome you were. Rest now good boy.

You are missed sweet Cody. I take comfort in the knowledge that you are at peace now. Run wild and free.
