The kittens that brought Brooklyn trains to their knees are looking for a home.

The kittens have been with Steven Liu in his Bushwick duplex since they were rescued.

Liu regularly fosters cats, and now, his apartment is becoming a little crowded.

The cats can be adopted once they turn eight weeks old.

He warns, though, that they're a little ill-tempered.

"I mean, they're stray cats, so they're very skiddish and very uncomfortable around humans," he said. "But you know, they're really cute. They're tiny."

The kittens snarled B and Q trains for more than two hours last Thursday.

Police climbed down onto the tracks, where they were found underneath the third rail of an express track.

The cats caused even more drama when Republican candidate for mayor Joe Lhota, a former MTA chairman, said he would have sacrificed the cats to ensure commuters got to work on time.
