BROOKLYN - Two kittens that were rescued from the subway tracks last week have found a new temporary home in the borough.

The 4-week-old kittens wound up on the subway tracks a week ago, leading MTA officials to shut down the B and Q trains for more than an hour.

The decision led to mayoral candidate Joe Lhota criticizing the MTA for stopping service.

Their caretaker, Steven Liu, says he's gotten lots of calls from curious friends, strangers and the media after taking in August and Arthur. They even have an invitation to appear on “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central.

Liu says he's happy they're out of harm's way and enjoying their new Bushwick home.
