Kittens got loose on the subway today! (photo, video)

No felines or humans were harmed during today's delays on the B/Q, which were caused by kittens on the subway tracks.

You would think that by this point, kittens would realize that the subway isn't a safe place for them—what with all the oversize rats out for blood, and the trains themselves—but every so often, you hear about an adorable kitty who just couldn't help running amok on the train tracks.

Today was one of those days: Earlier this afternoon, the B and Q lines were suspended in Brooklyn for about two hours because a pair of kittens had gotten loose on the tracks. According to The Wall Street Journal, power was shut off on the third rail along those lines so that the cats wouldn't be harmed. And ultimately, the kittens weren't captured. Wily things, those cats.
