A Reddit user under the name @lemonlloll published a "friendly neighbor" experience on the platform, which quickly endeared many users.

In his post, he shared a note that the person living next door had left him: "If you come home and realize 1 of your cats [is] gone, it's because it's in my apartment," the message reads.

The neighbor explained that the furry friend had suddenly slipped into his premises when he had opened his door.

He continued on, revealing he left keys in an outlet next door and had the cat locked safely in his room while he was at work.

Encouraging the owners to retrieve their pet, he added: "Don't steal anything... lol."

The neighbor said that he wasn't mad about the situation, quipping, "Unless it ain't your cat... then this is weird."

Thankfully, the owner successfully retrieved their cat and decided to share the note online, which earned significant praise from fellow Reddit users.

The original poster added that they thanked his neighbor for his kindness with some cash, which they left alongside the keys.
