Cat wreaks havoc on New York City subway system

Cat Wreaks Havoc on New York City Metro System

If there's one universal truth, it's that cats are adorable. If there's a second, it's that the Internet is in love with them.

Combine the two, and we have an an adorable cat who is not only breaking the Internet, but also breaking down the New York City subway system.

The New York Post said that George the cat was on a leash. He got spooked by the noise of the train and ran off. The train operator was notified and the power on the line was quickly cut off.

Two cops successfully catnapped George and returned him to his owner without causing a catastrophe.

A professional photographer with Quest Imagery also just so happened to be in the midst of the kitty drama.

George successfully fulfilled his dream of stopping more than 80 trains, and annoying 10,000 commuters in the middle of rush hour.

The NYPD posted a photo of the two officers credited with saving George. And, sounding quite kitten smitten, the officer who picked him up said:

"He looked at us. I picked him up, he reached for both of my shoulders like a baby. He almost hugged me."

There goes one of George's nine lives.
