Sunday's Shelter Sweetheart: Ringo

"All you need is love!"

That's what my namesake and his mates sang, and I know for sure that it's oh so true. You see, I'm a super-loving guy myself, and I have also been very lucky recently to have the love and kindness of strangers.

I can't tell you how I got separated from the people who raised me, but I somehow found myself alone on the streets of Independence.

And that's when it happened.... I was hit by a car."

"Unfortunately, the car dislocated my hind hip. It was very painful and I had a hard time walking on it. But that's when the love and kindness took over!!!

A wonderful Good Samaritan shared his love by bringing me to Great Plains. The vets here also have a lot of love and kindness to share. They did an operation on me, and put everything back where it's supposed to be.

Wow!!! I feel so much better!!! I can walk normally again!!!

And now they say I'm ready to start increasing my activity level and building muscle mass.

And do you know what that means????

 It means I'm all ready to look for my new forever home now!!! Oh, I can't wait!!! I've been dreaming of this for so long!!!

Like I said, I'm an awfully loving boy. I love to be petted and cuddle and spend time with you. I'm the kind of kitty who wants to be right by your side, a part of all you do.

Mostly, I just want to love someone and to be loved by someone. Doesn't everyone? So if you're looking for someone to love, then please come on down to Great Plains and say "hi".

All you need is love, you know. And together, we can make sure there is plenty of that in both our lives.


Ringo's available at the Merriam campus of Great Plains SPCA!
