    An adorable young cat has been found abandoned alongside a heartbreaking note from its owner.

    The owner of one-year-old Lilo wrote that they were "sorry", explaining that they could no longer look after the kitty.

    Luckily, Lilo has now been rescued by staff at the RSPCA’s Manchester and Salford branch who shared the note on social media, reports Manchester Evening News.

    The owner, who insisted they still "love" Lilo, also left detailed instructions on how to best care for her.

    “My name is Lilo (Lee-Low) and I am one,” the note begins. “My mummy is sorry and she loves me very much but she can’t keep me anymore.

    “I love treats and soft blankets to make biscuits on. I am an indoor cat too. I love to play and am very independent but I do love a snuggle and to sleep on the end of the bed at night.

    “I’m a good girl and my mummy hopes someone will love me more. Please take care of me.”

    The note ends with: “PS: I have been with my mummy since birth so I'm not used to other people.”

    RSPCA staff said they had since found Lilo a new home based on her care instructions.

    Their post read: “This is Lilo. She was found abandoned with this note. She was a very frightened, timid cat but thanks to the details provided by her owner we were able to place in a foster home that replicated her original home.

    “She soon settled and forged a strong relationship with her foster mom. This enabled us to introduce her to new people and find Lilo the purrfect match of an adopter for her.

    “Today we are taking Lilo to her new, furever home to a very excited adopter. We want to say a special thank you to her foster mom (she's American!) and her adopted mum, for without them both we could not have made this happen. A great success based on team work.”

    The post was greeted by warm responses from people, who described the note as "heart-breaking" but said they were glad the story "had a happy ending".

    One person replied: “Her original owner did exactly the right thing . She definitely loved her. Happy new home.”

    Another wrote: “Very sad the lady couldn’t keep her. But she did the right thing. I hope she sees this and knows her beautiful girl is fine.”

    Another post said: “You can tell from the note the owner loved her very much and how sad she was about letting her go. I hope she can see this and know Lilo is in a good place.”

    One other posted: “Awww that notes very sad. I'm glad the lady did the right thing, glad it's a happy ending.”
