shutterstock_85405006How did one cat manage to shut down New York City for 10 minutes? According to the New York Post, a kitty risked one of his nine lives and jumped onto the tracks of the No. 7 subway line in Times Square on Sunday morning – effectively stopping the train until he could be rescued and brought to safety.

NYCT Subway Tweeted:


The cat leaped into the tracks around 10:30 a.m. Transit workers halted trains on the line for about 10 minutes while an employee picked it up and got it out of harm’s way. Thanks to the NYC transit authority for saving the cat!

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
