    And this is why I don't think pets should be allowed in the cabin.

    ...or in a grocery store.
    ...or in a hospital.
    ...or in a research lab.

    Sometimes Seattle really frustrates me.

    I love the ending, where the CTA has decided that any passenger allergic to cats should be moved at least five rows away from the cat. This policy could be implemented poorly for those with allergies in the first or business class cabin ...

    There's enough in this story for a song, a Dr Seuss book and a NFB short film. :D

  16. Awww. My little feline friend is flying for the first time in May on AC to visit the folks in YYZ. This cat prefers to make sure everything is in order and on time! Since he's Siamese, the captain must oblige!

    A cat doesn't just "get loose" from a kennel. Some idiot had to have let him out to play with or something and then tried to blame it on a faulty latch or someone in security. I feel bad for the animal (probably was scared to death after this incident) and all the other people who had to put up with the delay. Amazing how some people can't/won't take responsibility for their actions!

    If you were allergic, you would be CATatonic. (like me)

    love it, that song was a favorite when I was a child, this thread brought it to mind, but I never knew it had been made into a film. Thanks for posting!

    Like me too. Cats and dogs should not be carried-on.

    Did you vote for your relative the Canadian lynx to be Gargoyle's next avatar? Unfortunately the big cat lost, but it looks like a nice piece of sculpture..
