Looks like a Manhattan mama cat has solicited a policeman’s help in getting her kittens across a busy intersection.
Hmm, if lolcats were around back then, what kind of snarky caption would be added to this photo?
“Even a cat may hold up traffic,” the caption reads. The story goes on to mention, “the cat who held up traffic on Lafayette Street, while, with a kitten in her mouth, she strolled nonchalantly from one side to the other. . . .”
