Amber Springer and Misti Blair were driving in Belfast, ME on Saturday, August 25, looking out at the roadside and the amount of litter there. That topic of interest ended up saving the lives of two beautiful black kittens, because the women were watching when a burlap bag moved and rolled down the embankment into a ditch. The pair pulled over and Amber untied a tightly knotted drawstring to release two skinny, flea infested kittens from the bag.
The women named the sisters Midnight and Salem and made plans to take them to a shelter in Camden. Amber describes the kittens as very friendly and, in her estimation, not feral. She says cats are frequently dumped at her property and gives her thoughts on why so many pets are abandoned in her area.
