Based on a true story:
*Two teens are accused of tossing a kitten in a microwave oven, then tossing the unit out a third-story window.
A neighbor witnessed the flying appliance in the city's Juniata section Wednesday afternoon, called police and rescued the cat, according to the Pennsylvania SPCA.
The boys, ages 15 and 16, face first-degree misdemeanor charges of willfully and maliciously torturing an animal, said Wendy Marano, PSPCA spokeswoman.
The stray male cat, perhaps 2 to 6 months old, suffered "mostly some cuts and bruises on his face," she said. "He didn't have any broken bones."
Otherwise, the black, white and gray kitten seems to be OK. "They did not microwave the cat," she said.
After finding the stray over the weekend, the teens used a cellphone to shoot video of their actions, including the microwave's crash.
The kitten - nicknamed Tostino by PSPCA workers - will be under observation for several days. "He's not released yet for adoption," Marano said.
Adults convicted of an animal-torture offense face a fine or up to two years in jail.*
