Infamous Subway Kittens Up for Adoption Soon

August 30, 2013 | Bucky Turco

A pair of troublesome kittens that caused some major delays for two subway lines in Brooklyn were eventually caught on Thursday evening and sent to Animal Care and Control in East New York. The felines, named Arthur (left) and August (right), are “approximately 8 weeks old” and are doing just fine according to AC&C. Pretty soon, they’ll also be up for adoption.

AC&C Communications Associate Alex Silver sent us the following statement along with an adorable photo:

The two kittens rescued from the subway tracks last night were brought to our Brooklyn Care Center, at 2336 Linden Blvd, and have been dubbed Arthur and August. They’re approximately 8 weeks old and doing well, and are being transferred to an AC&C foster home, where they can receive additional care such as socialization and be further assessed to ensure their needs are met prior to being made available for adoptions. They’ll be available for adoption in a couple of weeks, after some much-needed TLC.

For anyone interested in adopting other pets, go here. They’re also looking for volunteers.
