Adorable Kittens That Halted Subways Over Summer Up for Adoption

The kittens, named Arthur and August by their rescuers, forced the MTA to halt trains on two lines

The two kittens that wreaked havoc with New York City's subway system when they scampered onto the tracks in Brooklyn last August are ready to be adopted.

Animal Care and Control of NYC says the furry 4-month-olds need a home together.

Service was suspended for two hours on the B and Q lines Aug. 29 as transit workers tried to catch the kittens as they raced up and down the tracks near the third rail at the Church Avenue station in Prospect Lefferts Gardens.

The felines were eventually corralled and brought to Animal Care and Control in Brooklyn.

The kittens are named Arthur and August. They were cared for a foster home, and Arthur was treated for an eye infection.

Animal Care and Control says the kittens are playful and sweet but still a bit shy.

Both are altered males. Arthur is a tabby and August is a black cat.
