A mother and daughter pair of cats who were dumped in a cardboard box with nothing but a note have found new homes.

Jessi and her daughter Tiia were left in an old box in Kidsgrove, UK, near Stoke-on-Trent, with a heartbreaking note that read:

“Keep Together. Please help. We are mum and daughter. Spayed. Black and white (mum) Jessi, black (daughter) Tiia. Gone in to nursing home. Kan’t keep them. Sorry.”

They were taken in and cared for by the RSPCA’s Stapeley Grange Cattery and were snapped up by new owners after they heard their heartrending story.

Manager of the Stapeley Grange cattery, Lee Stewart, said:

“It’s heartbreaking to think these two cats were being left to fend for themselves.

“We’re so pleased they have gone to new loving forever homes.

“They were such playful cats we thought they would find new homes quickly.

“These were just two cats in our care. There are plenty more that are looking for new homes here at Stapeley.”

Not surprisingly, the cats’ plight touched hearts when it was shared on social media.
