Meet Nova @Sophia’s
Nova is a 16 year old tuxedo who is looking for her furrever home! Nova is currently on hypo thyroid medication to manage her thyroid condition. This medication is administered as prescribed by a veterinarian and is essential for maintaining her health. She will also need routine blood work done every 6 months due to her age and medical condition. Potential adopters should be prepared to continue her medication regimen, but with proper care and attention, Nova can lead a comfortable and happy life. Nova is a mature and beautiful tuxedo cat with a heart full of love to give. Her age and medical condition should not deter potential adopters from considering her as a cherished family member. If you are seeking a gentle and affectionate feline companion and are willing to provide her with the necessary care and medication, Nova could be the perfect addition to your home. Give this senior sweetheart the chance she deserves to spend her golden years in a loving and caring environment.
