Lost New Mexico kitten ends up in Maine

The Associated Press

WESTBROOK, Maine (AP) A New Mexico woman's missing kitten has been located in Maine, although exactly how the feline made the 2,300-mile trip remains a mystery.

The female kitten, named Spice, was turned into the Animal Refuge League in Westbrook earlier this month by a man who found her inside a duffel bag outside a Portland thrift store.

Spice's owner was tracked though an implanted microchip to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Jennifer Brown of the Animal Refuge League tells the Portland Press Herald ( ) she talked to the owner, who said Spice bolted on Halloween when she opened her door for trick-or-treaters.

The owner, who didn't want to be identified, said she's never been to Maine and doesn't know anyone from Maine.

Spice, meanwhile, remains in Westbrook because the owner can't afford to fly her home.
