SALEM, MA (WBZ-AM) —It's a complicated dispute:

An animal lover who has rescued and found a home for some three thousand cats, and cares very deeply about their welfare post-adoption.  

Tara Kawczynski is furious that a Salem woman who adopted "Muse" the cat let him in her backyard on a leash, despite signing a contract saying muse would always be indoors.

Pamela Howard wants to provide muse's forever home, and she has spent $3,000 defending herself from a lawsuit from Kawczynski seeking the cat back.  

Howard says Kawczynski over-reacted to a video of muse rolling in the sun outside, and could not be reasoned with.

And then there's the attorney Kawczynski hired in this emotional custody battle.  He says his client has an airtight contract.

But should drop the matter all the same.
