MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A man stole a 3-month-old kitten from a Minneapolis pet store, only to return it the next day with an apology note.

Ruff Start Rescue partners with PetSmart on pet adoptions. Its cat intake coordinator, Abbey Lynn, tells KSTP-TV (http://bit.ly/18YcBfW ) a man went inside a Minneapolis PetSmart on Friday asking to look at the cats. When the man was done, a manager locked up the cages and left him alone.

Another employee walked by shortly after and noticed the lock on the kitten's cage had been cut with a bolt cutter.

Ruff Start Rescue says the kitten was returned unharmed Saturday in a box at a Roseville PetSmart with an apology note. The writer said he didn't have money, and wanted to give the kitten as a Valentine's Day gift.
