Abandoned cat’s cries for help ignored by subway users

A TERRIFIED cat was ignored by passengers at a Midtown subway station for days as it cried for help from a carrier bag.

The cat’s heartless owner ditched the bag by the turnstile of the Seventh Avenue station on Saturday, leaving the two-year-old cat alone without food.

The moggy’s meowing was drowned out by the sounds of the busy station as passengers rushed passed the black bag, officials said.

The cat was finally rescued Monday, when a passenger spotted the bag at around 8 a.m. and alerted an MTA worker, who then called police.

She was turned over to Animal Care and Control, who said the cat would likely be put up for adoption.

“This is a busy subway station, so I’m surprised it was here for two days,” an ACC worker said at the scene.
