(knew you would get a title edit
I got slapped for less!)
Anyways I adopted a kitten many moons ago. A friend-of-a-friend type thing got posted on the old friendbooks. There was an abandoned kitten left in a
public park--retrieved--and adopted back out...
It was one of those creamy, milky striped cats...what do you call them? It's not a tabby but a..
Anyways, it was mostly creamy fur with a very VERY distinct white ring on its side.
So I named him Ringo
Oh boy! and I took in that kitten for 2 weeks. Bought him toys, lodgings, treats etc. Got him set up with a top-notch vet and all.
Fond memories of Ringo climbing my curtains in the wee hours of the morning and dive-bombing right into my crotch! I would caress and pet the little
fellow and he'd melt...until he realized he let his guard down and then he was all teeth and claws!
Loved the little guy. And then one evening I saw a poster for a 'lost cat' at a grocery store. "Has a white ring on his side..."
Oh boy...No kidding, that was my Ringo there...
So I had no choice but to call the number and asked them to describe the kitten just to be sure. Yep, they passed the test. It was theirs alright. The
story goes it was an ex-boyfriend aiming to get petty revenge on an ex-girlfriend and kicked out the cat and left him in a park.
This person just had to have her kitten back and I agreed to meet. She was also about 11 months pregnant and scheduled for a C-section the very same
day I was to return her missing kitten.
How could I honestly NOT give her her kitten back? I'd be a real villain if I didn't.
She got her kitten back, and a baby that same day, I suspect.
And I hope Ringo found a home more loving than even I could have given him.
That, OP, is the best little pussy I ever had.
