Early yesterday morning Nova lost his battle with what we are sure was feline leukemia. His gums turned white in the past week (a sign of FLIV) and after days of steadily declining he was gone.
Born on our bed on February 19, 1998, he was 11 and a half years old. A large cat, he was our “big baby” with a meow that sounded like a wistful “hello” and would melt your heart.
We’ll miss him.
