Taking A Pet Project Too Far

And Where’s The Cat’s Passport, Madam?

A British woman arrived in Amsterdam for a holiday - only to find she had accidentally packed her kitten. When Helen Wilmore opened her suitcase, three-month-old Beauty clambered out after a 21-hour journey that included a 15-hour delay at Leeds-Bradford airport. Beauty is now in a cat sanctuary.

FOOTNOTE: Kitty flitter.

Poor kitty.

Lee said...

That's dangerous. If she flew not all storage ares on planes are pressurized. The kitten could have lost hearing and brain function from lack of oxygen. I hope the suitcase was a carry on.


Cath said...

Awwww no! Poor thing! How on earth did it survive the cold in the hold? Must have been the clothing around it kept it warm and I have just read lee's comment - poor thing!

This is my worse nightmare with my kittens. We always do a head count... ;0)

I guess they didn't x-ray the bags.

I always worry about cats being accidentally carried off in trucks and things, out of their area. This is even worse. I haven't even got a cat now, but can still feel horror in this report.

Sandi McBride said...

Oh, that is sad...hope she gets a good home...the suitcase seems a bit to, oh I don't know, transient?

Our dog carries his own "Passwort", listing all his shots, his ID number. He can travel to any EU country, without any further documentation.
