One of the kittens, pictured here, ran onto the Coney Island-bound subway tracks at Church Ave., causing delays and service suspensions on the B and Q lines (Twitter/@NYCTSubwayScoop).

Two kittens caused advisories of police activity, delays and service suspensions at the Church Ave. station in Brooklyn Thursday after they ran onto the track bed.

The MTA reportedly shut down power to the third rail so workers could go down and get the cats into carrying cases — at least that was the plan.  The cats, one black and the other a striped gray tabby, zipped back and forth underneath the elevated tracks, clearly not interested in cooperating.

Commuters were stranded as delays and service suspensions went into effect from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The MTA workers finally gave up the search and train service resumed, despite the felines still running along the track bed.

It’s unclear whether they were pets or feral cats.
