Here kitty kitty! Owner sought for runaway cat on plane

egtmedia59Cat are not the most terrifying animals you might encounter on a plane, but a footloose feline wandering into the galley on a recent flight had a flight attendant keen to find its owner.

Phone footage posted online captures the cat strolling in the galley of a Delta Airlines flight on Saturday. The flight attendant seems unwilling to touch the animal – perhaps because she doesn’t like cats, is allergic to cats, doesn’t want to be scratched or is following company policy.

She demands passengers wake the cat-owner and retrieve the pet.

“Whose-ever cat this is, if you see them, wake them up…”

Certain animals are allowed to travel in Delta cabins for a fee, but are supposed to be kept in a locked container. Other animals are allowed to be loose. Animal owners are going to all sorts of lengths to take their pets with them in flight. See: New and cunning ways to sneak animals aboard planes

Spiders and snakes have escaped on planes before – and bitten passengers. A tame moggie is no big deal. Pretty cute, really!

YouTube user Kandra Covert, who posted the cat clip online, wrote: “Cat got loose on my Delta flight this morning… Flight attendant did not like cats, haha. What a CATastrophe!”

    well I am damn certain I would not like to have a cat crawl under or on my seat in flight and don’t kid yourself the smallest cat can inflict scratches and bites – hope the airlines that allow this have plenty of insurance
