Thanks to Cuteporter Julia G. for the tip. It seems two wayward kittehs now named Arthur & August were spotted Thursday on some subway tracks (the Fe-Line) in Brooklyn! No one knows how the little guys got there, but rescuers had to scramble to save their furry little necks! Over to you, Matt.
The service was shut down for about two hours; they were found near the B and Q stops located at Church Avenue in Brooklyn.
The kittehs were, predictably, hard to wrangle.
Rescuers named the pair, who were transported to the Brooklyn Animal Care Shelter, where they are safe.
Quoting the New York Daily News, rider Sandra P. said “The announcer said it had to stop to rescue some cats,” Polel said. “I didn’t mind. I wanted to get home, but I also wanted the kittens to be safe.”
All’s well that ends well. Finally!
