NEW YORK CITY (WFLA) — A cat that was found zipped inside a checked bag had a Thanksgiving treat after its ordeal.
A TSA spokeswoman said Smells the cat was found at the John F. Kennedy International Airport when an X-ray machine spotted him inside a suitcase that was supposed to be headed on a flight to Orlando.
According to the person who owned the suitcase, the feline stowaway belonged to someone else in his household.
“Apparently Smells was planning to chase after a big mouse he heard was running around Disneyworld,” spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said.
The cat was taken home, where it later enjoyed Thanksgiving with its family.
