Sometimes very simple things can interfere with our plans. In Brooklyn, two lost kitten stopped the city subway system. Authorities cut power to the B and Q lines for more than an hour after a woman called to report that her kittens were loose in the nation’s largest subway system. The power was turned off along several sections of the lines because authorities feared the animals might get too close to the dangerous third rail. When there was no sign of the animals, power was restored while workers and passengers were asked to be on the lookout and train operators were asked to proceed with caution. If they saw anything moving on the tracks, they were required to stop and report it to the control center. The kittens were finally located seven hours after the first reports came in. Officials say the cats were found on the tracks, and were removed in crates. They said the confusion caused huge delays for passengers, and to help people keep moving they provided shuttle service between two of the busiest stops. Officials did not say how much the delays and extra service cost.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
