Overhead Compartment Cat is Watching You Secretly Read Your Kindle During Takeoff

We love our pets. Shaun did a tremendous amount of research for our definitive pet travel guide and pet travel safety infographic. During it, he found this interesting story:

On December 28, 2006 passenger checked a cat in a kennel on Lufthansa Airlines from Manchester England to Munich with a connection to United’s flight 903 to Washington Dulles. On arrival in Dulles the kennel door was ajar and the kennel was empty. The aircraft hold was checked as was adjoining areas of the aircraft. Further attempts to locate the cat on the airport grounds were ongoing. The cat was discovered on the same aircraft, on January 16, 2007 in Denver. The cat was immediately taken to a veterinarian hospital where she was treated for dehydration and released and delivered to the owner.

… which inspired the above. Happy Tuesday. And remember — pet travel is still statistically safer than using a toilet!¬†

What would you do if you saw this happen on a flight? Let us know in the comments.
