“My mommy’s boyfriend is mean to me…” note from child over kitten left in box

MEOW Cat Rescue in Kirkland, Washington posted a heartwarming, but ultimately sad, yet still in the end, heartwarming rescue story

A kitten was found in a box with a note written in a child’s hand.

The note said: My mommys boyfriend is mean to me. desperete for loving home.

This was the note…


….and this is the kitten.



According to the MEOW Cat Rescue Facebook site, this is what they know:

A woman was walking down the street with her dog and saw the box, no different than any other box. Her dog sniffed the box with interest and her intuition told her to check it out. When she lifted the flap, she found the note, written by a child pleading for someone to help a kitten who was being mistreated. When she looked inside, she found the little fluffy being. A tiny and perfect kitten, at the mercy of whomever found the box. She scooped up the box and headed home. She wanted to be sure the kitten was healthy so made an appointment with her vet. Thankfully, this kitten was in very good health….a little on the thin side, but that could be remedied. She brought the kitten to MEOW and asked if we could take her. We sure could!
The baby is now in a foster home with other kittens of similar age and doing very well. We are so happy to have her. 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.

People have been wondering on social media whether the mean boyfriend reference was meant for the kitten or the child who wrote it.

Whoever it was, we hope that the kitten and the child are in a good, happy, healthy place.
