“Handsome Nova”…
This gorgeous fellow was rescued from a life on the streets. We believe Nova to be part Maine Coon. He is a large cat, approximately 5 years old and neutered.
.
He is a shy and will need someone to continue to allow him to come along at his own pace, and be very patient with him. He has tested positive for FIV, but is good with other cats and enjoys their company.
The Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is a slow virus that affects a cat's immune system over a period of years. FIV is a cat-only disease that cannot be spread to humans or other animals. FIV cats most often live long, healthy and relatively normal lives with no symptoms at all.

The disease has a wide range of effects. The cat can fight off the infection and become totally immune, can become a healthy carrier that never gets sick itself, or a mid-level case in which the cat has a compromised immune system.

FIV is not easily passed between cats. It cannot be spread casually – like in litter boxes, food and water bowls or when snuggling and playing. The virus can be spread through blood transfusions, badly infected gums, in-utero from mother to offspring or penetrating bite wounds (typically associated with unneutered tom cats). A neutered cat in a home is extremely unlikely to infect other cats, if properly introduced.

FIV-positive cats should be kept as healthy as possible feeding them a high quality diet. As with all cats, they should be kept indoors and free from stress. Treat any secondary problem, such as an upper respiratory infection, as soon as they arise.

We have chosen the name “Nova” because it means, “a star that becomes suddenly brighter”. With patience and love, Nova has become our little star that has become brighter with every day.

About Kathy Deptola Animal Rescue

About Our Shelter...

Mission Statement... "To supply a temporary foster home for abused, abandoned, sick and injured animals, that will provide for both their medical and emotional needs, until a permanent loving indoor home is found".

Kathy Deptola Animal Rescue began animal rescue work with a local animal shelter about 25 years ago. Because I truly do believe in giving every animal a chance at life, I now foster and do animal placement out of my home.

Each and every animal that enters my home is given any medical care, rehabilitation and socialization that it needs. Never is an animal in my foster care destroyed because "no one wanted them", or because "their time ran out".

Patience and a lot of love are the keys to finding the right homes. Often times many of these animals have had a bad experience and need to be given guidance, love and reassurance.

Every pet is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, wormed, and blood tested...(Leukemia/FIV for cats), (Heartworm for dogs) prior to adoption.

Come Meet Our Pets...

After potential adopters have been approved, I will schedule a time where you can either come to my home to meet pets I have available for adoption, or I can bring whoever you are interested in to your home for a meeting.

Our Adoption Process...

Each potential adopter is questioned regarding their past and current pet history. Understanding what you are looking for in matching up one of my current adoptees, helps to ensure a successful lifelong relationship.

Because I promote companion animals, all pets are required to be indoor pets only. A reasonable adoption donation is asked for every pet adoption. The fee for cats is $70.

All adopters are required to sign an adoption contract agreeing to the conditions of this rescue.
