A child's heartbreaking note was found attached to a kitten left abandoned in an alleyway in Washington state.

The MEOW Cat Rescue posted to social media that a woman walking her dog stumbled across the box, that she didn't think was anything other than such, when her dog began sniffing it.

When she opened the box, she found the kitten and a note pleading for someone to find it a safe home after it suffered alleged abuse in its previous home.

The note read, "My mommy's boyfriend is mean to me. Desperat (sic) for loving home."

According to the MEOW Cat Rescue, the kitten was surrendered to them and is now in a foster home with other kittens its age.

There's no further indication of who previously owned the kitten, and the person accused of the alleged abuse.
