A cat that made headlines in 2013 has gone missing in Brooklyn and his owners are asking the community to help find the feline.

Arthur the cat is one of two kittens that were rescued from the subway tracks two years ago in an effort that shut down the B and Q trains for two hours.

At the time GOP mayoral candidate, and possible cat haterJoe Lhota, said he would not have stopped the trains to rescue the kittens.

After Arthur and his adoptive brother August were rescued, a Brooklyn couple adopted them.

Arthur has been missing since Nov. 20 when he slipped out of an open window. His brother August is "beside himself," their owner told DNAinfo.

The couple have since “posted flyers around the neighborhood asking residents to keep an eye out for Arthur, who is 'extremely shy' and likely won’t respond to being called or coaxed by a stranger,” DNAinfo reports.


Additionally “the couple put humane traps in the area to entice Arthur to come home.”

If you spot Arthur the cat anywhere in the area give the owners a call at 646789-5626 or through this Facebook page.
