2. The kittens had a very brief appearance, but for those few moments, all was right in the world.
3. Brooklyn resident Steven Liu, 25, adopted the tiny, adorable kittens, who are now named named Arthur and August.
All but one mayoral hopeful supported the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s decision to suspend service for nearly two hours to save the two kittens who were spotted on the subway tracks in Brooklyn last week.
The only candidate who did not support shutting down subway service to save Arthur and August was Republican candidate Joe Lhota, who said he does “not think it’s appropriate to shut down an entire train line for an extended period for this purpose.”
So naturally, Stephen brought the kittens onto his show and challenged Joe “Kitten-Killer” Lhota to appear on his program to personally kill the subway kittens.
6. Anthony Weiner, on the other hand, would have “personally crawled over the third rail” to save the kittens.
7. Sal Albanese thinks it is “nuts” to just “run over kittens.”
8. Unlike Joe Lhota.
