Cod is a whimsical town where 
the animals of facebook

Vincent D. Cat spends much of his time 
at Rikki's Refuge where he works hard 
to keep the hoomans in line and where he has 
the most important job of Spokes Cat.  

Duke Thomas Peabody

I'm very happy I found the City of Cod; the inhabitants are much to my liking. I'd like to live there, if I could. I'd have to bring the others with me though: Mandy, Lily and Danny. I might even let my hoomans come to: Daddy Gene and Mama Pam. Thank you. Sincerely, Casey Odell-Nalesnik (my name is hyphenated 'cause I was adopted by daddy when mommy married him. Then we adopted the others!)
