Abandoned kitten found in box with heartbreaking note from child


This was the note...and this is the kitten. A woman was walking down the street with her dog and saw the box, no...

On Thursday, a non-kill animal shelter called MEOW posted a picture on Facebook telling the tragic story of a kitten found with a child's devastating hand-written note. It started when a woman in Kirkland came across a closed cardboard box on the sidewalk. When she lifted the flap of the box, she found a tiny kitten.

Above the kitten, a heartbreaking note was scribbled by what seems to be a young child. The note read:

%shareLinks-quote="My Mommys boyfriend is mean to me. Desperet (sic) for loving home." type="quote" author="Unidentified child" authordesc="" isquoteoftheday=%

The woman took the kitten to the vet and then to the shelter. The kitten is now in a foster home and is reportedly headed for a happy, loving family. MEOW said:

%shareLinks-quote="We have more questions than answers, but are forever thankful for the bravery of the child who knew the kitten deserved better and the kindness of the woman who saved the kitten." type="quote" author="MEOW" authordesc="" isquoteoftheday=%

After MEOW posted the picture on Facebook, several commenters suggested that the woman leave a note where she found the kitten letting the child know that the kitten was rescued and will go to a loving family.

Hopefully the kitten's fate will be similar to this story:
