Who Knew a Train Delay Could Be So Adorable?

Featuring kittens! Who can even get mad about this?

"Sorry I'm late for work, but there were a bunch of adorable kittens playing on the tracks and so the subway was delayed," is possibly the best (now legitimate) late excuse of all time. 

Yesterday, New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority was forced to pause the B and Q lines for an hour when it was discovered that two kittens were playing hopscotch (or tag, or whatever kittens do) on the railway lines. The kittens were discoved by NYC passengers who wanted to help capture the felines, but were forbidden (and rightly so) from crossing the subway tracks for safety reasons. 

Instead, MTA workers in reflective vests spent nearly an hour trying to corral the little kitties into carrying cases to remove them from harm's way. They were eventually removed from the area, but not before this amazing tweet was penned: 

 Thank you kittens. You've made our week.
