A goddamn kitty cat on the tracks delayed trains on the C line this morning

Curiosity came perilously close to doing in yet another cat this morning. 

In an urban twist on the classic “cat stuck in a tree” incident, workers were forced to rescue a daredevil cat that had somehow made its way onto the tracks at the Rockaway Avenue station in Bed-Stuy. Even in our new age of bracingly honest subway announcements, this one must have come as a bit of a surprise to delayed commuters. 

The feline rescue operation, which took place a little after 7:30am, affected the morning commutes of New Yorkers that rely on the line by rerouting trains around the station. C trains were forced to run express from Broadway Junction to Utica Avenue with regular service resuming about 30 minutes later.

As frustrated as many riders must have been as a result of the incident, we know one New Yorker who’s even more pissed about the successful rescue.
