Abandoned Cat Found With Heartbreaking Note Saying That His Owners ‘Can’t Afford To Keep Him Anymore’

A cat has been found abandoned with a heartbreaking note saying that his owners ‘can’t afford to keep him anymore’.

The 12-year-old feline – named ‘Cheeky’ – was discovered inside a cat carrier by a member of the public on Arran Road in Motherwell, North Lanarkshire on October 9.

The handwritten note read: ‘Hi my name is Cheeky. I’ll be 13 in February. Unfortunately my family can’t afford to keep me anymore. Please look after me.’

The cat was taken to the Scottish SPCA, which is appealing to Cheeky’s previous owners to find out if he has any health problems or special dietary needs.

Gillian Boyle, Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre manager, said: “We were brought the cat, named Cheeky, on 9 October.

“He had a note with him which read, ‘Hi my name is Cheeky. I’ll be 13 in February. Unfortunately my family can’t afford to keep me anymore. Please look after me.’

“While nobody should abandon an animal, we do appreciate the person who left Cheeky wanted him to be cared for.

“As Cheeky is an older cat, we would like to find out if he has any health issues or special dietary requirements.

“We are appealing for the previous owner to get in touch to let us know so we can provide him with the best possible care.”
