An abandoned cat was spotted with a “heartbreaking” note asking to be adopted by someone who “loves me more”.
RSPCA staff at the Manchester and Salford offices rescued poor Lilo after her ‘unfortunately’ owner was no longer able to look after her.
The “terrified” year-old was found with the handwritten letter hanging around her neck, which described how she loved nothing more than snuggling up on the bed.
“My name is Lilo (Lee-Low) and I am one,” it reads. “My mom is sorry and she loves me very much, but she can’t keep me anymore.
“I love treats and soft blankets to bake cookies on. I am also an indoor cat. I love to play and am very independent but love to cuddle and sleep at the foot of the bed at night.
“I’m a good girl and my mom hopes someone loves me more. Please take care of me.’
The note ends with: “PS: I’ve been with my mom since I was born, so I’m not used to other people.”
The RSPCA shared the note on Facebook on Thursday, explaining how they found Lilo.
The story must have touched the hearts of many cat owners out there, as staff said they found her a new home based on her care instructions.
“This is Lilo. She was found abandoned with this note. She was a very scared, shy cat, but thanks to her owner’s input, we were able to place her in a foster home that was modeled on her original home,” the post reads.
“She soon settled down and developed a strong relationship with her foster mother.
“That way we could introduce her to new people and find Lilo to be the perfect adopter for them.
“Today we bring Lilo to her new forever home with a very excited adopted child.
“We would like to say a special thank you to her foster mother (she is American) and her adoptive mother because without them we would not have made this possible. A great success based on teamwork.”
