The famous frisky felines who fouled up traffic on the New York City subway this summer have found a forever family.
Arthur and August shut down about six miles of track on two subway lines in Brooklyn after they were spotted wandering in the subway system on Aug. 29. The New York Police Department sent officers to the scene for crowd control as trains stopped running for about 90 minutes.
Arthur is a tabby.
While August has a solid black coat.
Animal Care & Control of NYC received a lot of inquiries and applications from people to adopt the cats, spokesman Richard Gentles told CNN.
Who are the proud new parents? Katherine and Keith Lubeley from Brooklyn Heights.
They say the kittens are adapting to their new home pretty quickly.
"They're adjusting to the spaciousness," Keith Lubeley said. "We've been introducing them room by room."
According to Gentles, the kitties were sheltered for about two months before they were eligible for adoption.
"One was a little underweight, and both kittens needed to be socialized," Gentles explained.
Not much is known about their origins, according to the Animal Care & Control of NYC.
"From what we can tell, they are brothers from the same litter," Keith Lubeley said. "They seem to be good partners and they are definitely playful."
