Nova was given up to animal control by her original family when they found out they let her get pregnant. Nova made her way to us, and after being spoiled rotten by her foster mom while preparing for her babies, she gave birth to a wonderful litter of kittens. Nova was a spectacular, doting mother who appreciated having a human’s help birthing and raising her kittens. Nova spent the first two weeks in her foster home as the “coworker” for her foster mom, working from home. Then she went on caternity leave for six weeks, focusing on the kids in their foster room. When the kittens didn’t need her constantly anymore, Nova went back to work in her foster mom’s home office. Nova was a great coworker. She participated in meetings, proofread
work….. she also looked out the window and slept on the job.
Important Update: Nova was adopted in early August, by a wonderful lady. The two fell in love very quickly. The same can’t be said for the adopter’s dog. Even though it was an old, docile dog, Nova could not accept being around the dog. She was beyond terrified and dangerously stressed, and nothing was making the situation better. Nova’s adopter tried many things to make the adoption work, but ultimately everyone involved made the sad decision that Nova needs to be in a home without dogs, and her adopter tearfully surrendered her back to the rescue. Nova’s foster mom took her back, gave her 24 hours to decompress in the home office, then let her have run of the house, primarily to make sure that Nova would be OK in a home with other cats and wouldn’t react the same way she did with dogs. Nova is great with other cats! Her foster home has 3 female feline residents, and Nova walked right up to each one. She also adjusted very well to having an entire house to roam, after spending so long in a foster room and home office. Even with run of the house, Nova still chooses to be wherever people are. She wants to be near her humans, and even greeted some family members who came to the house. She has no shyness for people or cats, just the dog terror. So, her ideal home has humans who need a companion, a cat or cats who need a companion, and no intention of ever having a dog. Nova is also chatty, so you can have great, meaningful conversations with her. If you think you might have the right home for Nova, please apply to meet this amazing young lady. She’s a tremendous companion animal who will hang out with you, spoon with you when you’re sleeping, and have those deep, meaningful conversations you can only have with a cat.
Nova is a 2 year old female who is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, and litter box trained.
Nova's adoption fee is $95. If you are interested in meeting Nova, please fill out our Online Application today!
Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will be able to contact you to arrange a meeting.

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.
We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.
A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals. The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.
If you’re invited to meet an animal:
- Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
- All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.
Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
