TSA agents discover cat stowed away in passenger's luggage at JFK Airport
· Nov 30, 2022 · NottheBee.com

Gotta let the cat out of the bag right away — in fact, that's literally my job — it looks like someone's cat snuck into their relative's luggage over the weekend and tried to catch a free flight out of JFK.

Yes, we love our cats, though we never really know where they are or what they're up to, and, well, I guess sometimes they end up sneaking into our family members' luggage and trying to follow them around the country.

The Transportation Security Administration said agents monitoring the baggage X-rays at the airport noticed what appeared to be the outline of an animal.

"The bag was opened by a TSA officer, who was shocked to see a live orange cat inside," TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein told The Washington Post.

Here's what the TSA had to say:

Couldn't have said it better myself, TSA!


Yes, this little feline met a friendly family member over the weekend, and it must've been love at first sight, cuz the cat straight tried to fly back home with him!

TSA agents told Delta Airlines about the discovery, and the airline was able to locate the owner of the bag, who was preparing to fly to Orlando, Fla.

The bag's owner said the cat belongs to another member of his family. The man was able to rebook another flight for the next day so he could take the cat home.

Sorry, Uncle Phil, Fluffy's a little sneaky sometimes. It means he likes you.

Anyhow, hope you made it to work on time this morning!
