While a little thin, the kitten was found to be in generally good health and is doing well living in a foster home with similarly aged kittens, according to MEOW. The shelter says she won't be available for adoption for several months.
"We have more questions than answers," wrote MEOW, "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."
Understandably, many concerned commenters expressed worry about the welfare of the child who left the note.
"Yes," wrote MEOW on Facebook. "This is the very same concern we have."
