Man who stole kitten returned it the next day with an apology note


A man stole a kitten from a local pet store, but then returned it the next day with an apology note.

Ruff Start Rescue, which partners with PetSmart on pet adoptions, posted on Facebook saying a man went inside a Minneapolis PetSmart on Friday to look at the cats and when he was done the manager locked up the cages and let the man be.

Not long after, an employee walked by and noticed the lock on the kitten's cage had been cut with a bolt cutter and a 3-month-old kitten was missing.

In an update on Facebook, Ruff Start Rescue says the kitten was returned to a PetSmart in Roseville with a note saying he was sorry, he didn't have enough money to buy her.

KSTP says he wanted to give the kitten as a Valentine's Day gift.

The kitten was unharmed.
