Nova's FIP Journey

Hi there, my name is Misty Owens-Meyers. I am posting this GoFundMe on behalf of my entire family in hopes to raise funds for costly medical treatments for our 11 month old cat, Nova.

Nova entered our home, our lives, and our hearts on Thanksgiving of 2019. And to say we are thankful for her, is an understatement. She quickly became the fifth member of our family, and we adore her. Nova is sweet and affectionate, yet incredibly playful and energetic! She loves to snuggle, climb, play fetch, and bird watch. 

However, over the past couple of weeks, the Nova we had gotten to know and love disappeared. Her appetite began to decrease, she started losing weight, she began sleeping all day and night, and refused to play or snuggle. 

It turns our beloved kitten has a virus called Feline Infectious Peritonitis, or FIP. If left untreated, it is 100% fatal. Fortunately, there is treatment out there that has proven to be extremely effective. Unfortunately, it is very expensive. 

My family and I would be extremely grateful to anyone willing to help us provide daily treatments and veterinarian visits to our sweetheart, Nova. If you could support our GoFundMe by making a donation and then sharing it with your network, I would greatly appreciate it. I know that money can be tight, so please know that even $5 helps us get closer to our goal! Let me know if you have any questions about FIP and I’ll be happy to answer them.

Thank you,
The Meyers/Owens Family - Misty, Danny, Owen, and Hugo
