Usually they have a list of volunteers who look after animals they are placing. Maybe they'd have someone willing to take the cat in on a temporary basis -- especially if you offer a small donation ;-)
Aw crud Gary! If I lived closer, I sure wouldn't mind. *hug*
Of course, once Vallory (daughter) got ahold of it, y'all might not get it back. She and Oreo (our cat) play hide and seek.... hilarious to watch.... Oreo loves to wait until she's behind the couch.... then he jumps up behind her and swats her on the butt.... She also tried to paint his toenails pink (poor guy) and is insisting that he'd love a dog sweater she found at the store tonight.... Your daughter's poor cat would probably pull a Milo and Otis and travel cross-country just to get back home and away from her.... LOL
Yeah.. I think I'd start with my vet first and then call the local shelter.... someone would probably be willing to "catsit" for a few months if your daughter and her hubby provided cat litter and food for that time. I'm sure one of them can point you in the right direction.
I'd suggest asking at local Petsmarts and Petcos, especially on days they have adoption groups in - some cat lover amongst the employees and rescuers (as KirstenM said) may be happy to care for the kitty.
A few years back at our local Petsmart we got to know one of the checkers who's other job was as a cat sitter, but others there were dog and/or cat fanatics who would care for pets sans charge.

Update: Good old mom and dad are gonna give it a try. We only live about 6 blocks from where our daughter works, so she'll come by every day to spend time with the cat, take care of litter box chores, etc. We have a room we can confine kitty to the first few days until she's willing and able -- hopefully! -- to get along with our cat.
Both wife and daughter have assured me it'll work. And since wife and daughter are the two smartest people I know, as well as extremely savvy about pet things, I'll go along with it.
Of course, if wife and daughter are wrong, it could be a long 3-4 months. Then I'll look this thread up and try some more fall-back positions.
