The kittens were seen on the third track at around 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 29. The MTA immediately cut power to the third rail which carries 600 volts of electricity, halting service along the B and Q lines as MTA workers went on a search-and-rescue operation for the two kitties.

9. The four-week-old kittens were taken to the Animal Care and Control Center in Brooklyn where they were christened Arthur and August. They will be put on three-day hold in case they are claimed by their owner after which they will be up for adoption.
