Instead, she spent the rest of her recovery in a foster home in Ramapuram, a suburb in Chennai. Her caretaker, Karthik Dhandapani, had never owned a pet until he volunteered to take in Bhadra - because his mother, who lives with him, had never approved of them. But on Wednesday, Bhadra's rescuers announced that Dhandapani decided to keep Bhadra, who is now 7 months old, forever.
"Bhadra loves my mother's chapatis just as much as she loves chasing crows," Dhandapani told The New Indian Express. Bhadra also likes to play outside on Dhandapani's terrace several times a day.
