I think it could definitely be worse - instead of looking to rehome the cat or take it to a shelter, she could just dump it, so I think you might have been just a little harsh, and it is true, it is never professional to lose it in the office, but it happens sometimes. Please try not to beat yourself up about it, but please also try to understand that not everyone is like you and that not everyone feels as strongly as you do about it.
If you feel that strongly about it - TAKE HER CAT!!! Problem solved.
