Taffy's Path To A Forever Home

(Indianapolis, Indiana USA)
Several years ago, our beautiful cat, Taffy, was born. Someone in the community saw fit to have her spayed. However, they also had her declawed. Not only was this cruel, it put her life at risk should she ever be put outside. Maybe they didn't anticipate the possibility of this happening? We don't know.
I was at work one day, and received an email from a coworker. She said that her sister, Betty, who was advancing in age with failing health, could no longer care properly for her beloved cat, Taffy. Betty had adopted her, naming her Taffy, because of her coloring. Betty loved Taffy dearly, and was praying that she could find a loving home for her. I didn't want to see this gorgeous cat with no claws, unable to defend herself, to be thrown into a shelter. My sister and I jumped to Taffy's rescue!
Now, Taffy has a loving, forever home! Since we have many cats in our home, we are always on the lookout for any aggression from our other cats, in order to protect her. Taffy is our little Princess, whom we treat as royalty. Not only were we blessed with a beautiful cat, but our actions warmed an aging woman's heart, putting her fears at rest. There's no greater feeling!
