Well, to make a long story short, the owner of Candy was indeed the lady who was in the hospital. She told me that I could bring her back to her house, but that she would have to keep her outside because she doesn't get along with the other cats or dogs. She got Candy from the Humane Society only a couple of months ago, and didn't know that she has to be an only kitty, well... animal for that matter!
So here's this poor declawed kitty who has to live outside because she was placed in the wrong home?!?!? I don't think so! I volunteer with the Animal Service League and I told the owner that I would be glad to be her foster home while the League finds that perfect home that Candy needs. The owner agreed and so did ASL, so I have to have her owner sign a release form and Candy will officially be up for adoption! Poor baby!
