Happy news about animals
Early in September, American Airlines hired a pet detective. While that sounds hilarious, the reason for the new hire is decidedly not; American accidentally lost a cat traveling with a passenger at New York’s JFK Airport back in August (the cat’s cage door came open). Since then, airport staff have been keeping their eyes open for the orange tabby cat, even putting food and water out in the cargo area, where Jack would most likely be hiding out.
Alas, no hide nor hair has been seen of the kitty, but there’s no giving up. Instead, this last Saturday AA [Edit: Friends of Jack] organized Jack the Cat Awareness Day, where a search party of volunteers made the issue of the missing cat known around the airport. They passed out flyers to travelers and probably looked under every row of SmarteCarts. Alas, no dice.
