Two teenage girls from Maine are facing animal cruelty charges after they uploaded a video of them giggling as they put a kitten in a microwave, which they then turned on.
Fortunately, the eight-week-old kitten survived.
In the short video, one of the girls is shown putting the tiny cat inside the microwave, closing the door and turning it on.
The kitten is then seen panicking and scrambling a few moments later as one of the girls opens the door.
Police said the girls appeared to be laughing in the video, and a spokesman said officers were investigating.
The South Portland High School students cannot be named for legal reasons, but they were issued with court summonses.
The kitten's owner agreed to hand it over to animal welfare officers, and it is currently being treated by the Animal Rescue League.
A Facebook post for the rescue center said the kitten was making good progress, and has been renamed Miracle.
