(AP) It only took two kittens to stop the New York City subway in its tracks.
Transit officials say they cut power Thursday to the B and Q lines in Brooklyn for more than an hour after an owner reported her kittens were loose in the subway.
The two one black, one white with gray stripes were seen running dangerously close to the high-voltage third rail.
Transit workers were dispatched onto the tracks to try to corral them while power was cut on part of the lines.
The owner brought food to try to coax them out, but the skittish kittens disappeared again.
Officials say workers and passengers are on the lookout for them and train operators are being asked to proceed with caution.
