On August 31st, Jack the Cat was lost while traveling with his owner Karen Pascoe. American Airlines reported that he had escaped from his pet carrier in the luggage holding area during the Hurricane Irene frenzy, and had presumably been "roaming the halls" of JFK Airport for two months while search teams scoured the airport looking for him.
Well, folks, Jack has been found! He was located in the customs room and was immediately taken to the vet to get checked out. He is currently being treated for dehydration (not much pooling water in the customs room, I suspect) and will be flying home to his mom in California within the next couple of days.
This has been pretty bad press for American Airlines, as well it should be. I get angry enough when my luggage gets lost on flights, I can't imagine losing a cat!
