The adorable, annoying subway cats that forced an hour and a half train stoppage yesterday — thus sparking the greatest moral quandary of our time — were finally rescued from the tracks last night around 6 p.m., hours after the subway started running again. The four-week-old kittens were then transferred to a shelter in Brooklyn where they were named Arthur and August; if three days pass without someone claiming them, the pair will be eligible for adoption, hopefully by someone who will keep them inside.
