Near Cat-astrophe

Two kittens shut down subway service for nearly two hours

Who's a little train delayer? Who's a little train delayer?

The Daily News reports:
Subway service was suspended on the Q and B lines in Brooklyn Wednesday for nearly two hours while transit workers dealt with a furry situation: two kittens chilling on the tracks. Transit workers spotted the two little felines near Church Ave. on an outdoor stretch of the Q and B lines at 11 a.m., officials said. The workers, and later police, tried to capture the duo but were unsuccessful. The MTA suspended B train service between DeKalb and Brighton Beach, and Q train service between Dekalb and Stillwell, until 12:40 a.m. Service was restored when the kittens scurried away. The authority provided shuttle buses for displaced straphangers between Kings Highway and Stillwell Ave.
