kittens rescued from NYC subway!

It's so rare to read happy news these days, so when I read this story, I just had to share.

From CBS News: 2 kittens that stopped NYC subway service found
In this Aug. 29, 2013 photo provided by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in New York, two kittens stand between the rails on subway tracks in the Brooklyn borough of New York. / AP PHOTO/METROPOLITAN TRANSIT AUTHORITY
A woman somehow lost her kittens on the subway tracks, so the transit authority cut power to the tracks for more than an hour as they searched. Amazingly, seven hours later they were found and safely retrieved!

There are a lot of crazy, cruel people out there in the world, but this news story shows there are lots of good, kind people too, who are willing to do the right thing even when it inconveniences a lot of people.
