The two kittens that brought the morning commute to a halt at a city subway station last month, are now being put up for adoption.

Just six weeks ago, Arthur and August brought the B and Q trains to a halt in Brooklyn for more than two hours while they played on the tracks.

They were eventually rescued by police.

The duo have since been living at the Animal Care and Control Brooklyn Care Center.

Arthur needed to be hospitalized at one point due to his weakened immune system, and was also treated for a severe eye infection.

But the kittens are now ready for new home.
