The Tube is run by cats

Anyone trying to look at the Transport for London website last night would have found themselves being entertained by our feline friends. It looks like a webmaster was playing around with the URL
http://tube.tfl.gov.uk/ and for some reason thought it would look good with cats. This was live from about 8.30 last night for around two hours.

Screengrab by Benjamin Ellis

The link normally goes to main London Underground website and within seconds, hundreds of people were taking screengrabs & Tweeting as they couldn't believe cats had invaded the Tube!

Ben Smith said "Although it looks like a test site (the main TFL site doesn't link to it) I vote all TFL sites should be like this."

Benjamin Ellis, who took the screengrab above said "I saw hundreds of people mention it, probably got more page views than the normal TfL site ;)"

Maybe the Tube is run by fat cats after all!
