Two 15-year-old girls from South Portland, ME, took a Vine of themselves placing a cat in a microwave and turning it on.
Despite a cut in the footage, authorities say the video wasn’t a stunt — the girls actually microwaved an 8-week-old household cat. Police aren’t sure how long the oven was on.
The girls face animal cruelty charges and were issued summonses on Monday.
The cat, nicknamed “Miracle,” was turned over to South Portland’s Animal Control Officer, and is now in the care of the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland.
Lynne McGage of ARL says, “She’s going to see the vet tomorrow, and we’re thinking by the way she’s acting that she’ll get a full bill of health.” A lottery will be held for the multitudes of people who have offered to adopt her.
The girls that put the kitten in the microwave are
- Kaylie Tarvers
- Caitlyn Tucker
They both attend South Portland High School, South Portland, Maine
