An abandoned kitten was found with a heartbreaking note in Kirkland, Washington. A local woman came across the kitten in a box as she was walking her dog, and saw an inscription inside of it that read:

My Mommys boyfriend is mean to me. Desperet (sic) for loving home.

The woman took the kitten to the vet and then brought the animal to MEOW, a local animal shelter. They placed it in a foster home with other kittens, and it's now doing fine. According to the organization:

"We have more questions than answers,” MEOW said. “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."
