FREEPORT, Maine (WGGB) — More than a dozen cats are safe after being found in a plastic tote Thursday.
WMTW-TV reports that Wednesday, while walking her dog, Freeport resident Laura Baumli saw a plastic tote, sealed up with duct tape, near a gravel pit.
When Baumli opened the tote, the station adds that she saw 13 cats and kittens inside and still alive. She took them home, gave them some food, and contacted the Coastal Humane Society in Brunswick on Thursday.
The three adult female cats and 10 kittens are “safe” and appear to be in “good health,” according to a post on the Humane Society’s Facebook page.
The kittens, the Humane Society says, are from three litters, and some are as young as three to seven weeks old.
Some of the cats should be available for adoption sometime next week.
