One of these lucky cats was Ringo, a gorgeous ginger puss who had been living on the streets as a stay for five years.
|Ringo was cared for by Cats Protection while his owner was found|
Carolyn Daniels and her family were living just a few miles away from the centre and were stunned to get the call that their beloved cat had been found after such a long time.
|Carolyn was overjoyed to be reunited with Ringo|
"He was thin, looking a bit worse for wear and in need of a bit of TLC, but we were overjoyed to see Ringo again,” said Carolyn.
|Ringo is happy to be home again|
