Your code was/is in code2.py

class codefly:
      def WaitFreecatz(self, hours):
          hours = self.hours
          i =1
          while i < hours:
                print ' i wait for %s hours' %(i)
                i = i+1
          if i ==hours:
                print 'he never comes'


The message is pretty clear.  Why are you trying to call the module you 
just imported?  Perhaps you meant to instantiate the class that was 
defined there.  In that case, the syntax would be:
    me = code2.codefly()

To save you some trouble on your next bug, let me point out that your 
class does not initialize its instance variable  self.hours    That's 
normally done in the __init__() method.  Also, you can interactively see 
the objects of an object with the dir() function.  So try  
dir(code2)     dir(code2.codefly)    and  dir(me)
