A dying owner wrote a heartfelt letter to the future family of her beloved cat in the hopes of imparting some wisdom on how to best care for her friend.
The cat named Susie was dropped off, along with the letter, at the Montgomery County Animal Services & Adoption Center in Maryland in May, the Huffington Post reported.
In the letter obtained by the Huffington Post, the previous owner explained Susie is an "unusual" cat that is "afraid of everyone and everything."
But despite her shy demeanor, the owner wrote that Susie was a loyal companion who loved to be snuggled.
Susie is still looking for a home, according to the shelter's Facebook page.
The shelter said that although many people have offered to adopt Susie since her story was picked up by the media, most of them aren't local.
BuzzFeed News has contacted the shelter for comment.
