SALISBURY, Md. - The two kittens saved from abuse earlier this week in Princess Anne are on the long road to recovery.  

The two kittens were rescued after a woman in Somerset County saw two juveniles abusing them on Tuesday night.  Officials at the Worcester County Humane Society said the kittens were repeatedly dunked in water and thrown against a dumpster.  A volunteer from the humane society took the cats to an animal hospital Tuesday night and have been recovering at Healing Hands Animal Hospital in Salisbury since.

The caregivers for the two male kittens at Healing Hands said they had some difficulty regulating their body temperatures the first night, but have been doing well since.  Doctors will be closely monitoring the kittens for any signs of neurological damage as a result of the abuse.  Also, nurses at Healing Hands believe it is possible the tabby cat could lose on of his eyes.

While the kittens recover, the Worcester County Humane Society is looking for the public's help is caring for the cats.  The Humane Society has already turned to the public to help name the cats.  Edgar is the tabby cat and Poe is the black kitten.  Now, a Go Fund Me account has been set up for the kittens with all of the money donated going towards their medical bills.
