Kitty Saved From NYC Subway Seeks Express Ride To A New Home
This is Subway Dunford.
He got his name because he was found in the New York City subway. Residents of the Bronx contacted authorities after hearing the scared feline meowing through a subway grate.
Though Metropolitan Transportation Authority workers got the grate open on Sunday, they couldn’t lure Dunford out until Monday night, the New York Daily News reported . And then, the crowd of people collected around frightened the cat right back into an emergency exit tunnel, causing lags for the city’s 6 train.
Thanks to the combined efforts of the NYPD, transit workers and trade animal rescue volunteers, Dunford was rescued from the metro for good Tuesday night after strolling into a food-baited trap, according to Pix 11.
“He’s in shockingly good shape, but really dirty, ” John Sibley, a volunteer with Magnificat Cat Rescue and Rehoming, told the New York Daily News this week. “He’s about the dirtiest cat I’ve ever seen.”
Now Dunford is safe in the care of Magnificat, and Sibley is promoting the feline for now. But the lovable cat is still looking for a permanent place to call home.
“This cat is a delight, ” says a Facebook post from Magnificat. “He needs a home — a great home, because he is a great cat. “
Dunford gets along well with other cats, and does well with puppies as long as they aren’t aggressive, the post states.
