Sounds like AA is making a strong effort to locate and return the cat to the owner.
It is wise to bring the owners to the search area. That would make the cat less anxious. The owners should also bring the cat's favorite blankets etc and spread them around. As a cat owner and loyal AA flyer, I feel for all sides in this situation and pray for a happy ending.
Good news: Jack the Cat was found!
Was Jack the cat found by the American Airlines pussy posse? I'm glad Jack was discovered. When they found Jack, did someone say, "Hi Jack"? Did TSA make Jack go through additional security screenings or did they write S,S,S,S on each paw? Many people will sleep soundly tonight knowing Jack is safe. With the safe return of Jack, hopefully, AMR stock prices can now return to their higher levels with the elimination of this major corporate concern.
Four Great Moments of 2011:
--Dictators deposed throughout the Middle East.
--Osama Bin Laden put out to sea.
--NW/DL "Underwear Bomber" pleads guilty without trial.
--Jack the Cat found healthy at Kennedy Airport.
(sorry, limited to four. No room for UA's new Mileage Plus program as a "great moment.")
And before anyone takes me too seriously, I actually *do* like cats. Really. It just seems this grew out of all proportion as a problem for AA.
EDIT: Just went to the AA/Jack The Cat Facebook page. Turns out Jack apparently has "fatty liver disease" from not eating, is being fed by IV and is not well enough for the trip to California. AA and the cat's owner are optimistic, but Jack is apparently a pretty sick kitty right now. So before we get too giddy about this. . . .
American reported on 'Facebook' tonight, Nov. 6, that Jack, finally found in late October, has been euthanized. Jack is deceased.
BTW, many of the comments after AA's 'Facebook' post tonight are intense, to put it mildly. Most against AA. Calling them heartless corporate bastards, yada yada yada. Someone even suggests renaming the airline, though I HOPE that one was in jest. What are the gonna call it? JAAck?
JAAck! Brilliant. +1
What a nightmare for all involved! While I would not fly with my pet personally, I still very much feel for everyone involved here both the cat's family and AA. Again, what a nightmare.
After the death of Jack the Cat whose poor health was apparently caused to being lost for two months after running away while in the care and custody of American Airlines, the phrase "Dead Cat Bounce" might take on new significance for AMR stockholders this month.
There are some serious morons posting on FB over this. Some calling for charges others hoping AA goes out of business. And of course the standard " my flight was delayed and AA didn't kiss my but so I'll never fly them again" stuff. I used to think Internet message boards were a loon magnet......I stand corrected, it is FB which has most of the nut jobs.
You should read the comments on some of the articles & blog posts on the Travel section of USA Today's web site. Some real characters over there!
I try to not read the reader comment sections on newspapers. Like the sun rising in the morning, they are so predictable in their level of stupidity. (though on occasion I will just for a laugh. The SF Chron travel section is good for a chuckle whenever they post a story about Mexico)
At least this website, and to a lesser extent FT, hasn't been infested by the chuckle heads yet. Lol
FT has a few, they just don't usually stay around very long becase everyone points out how "chuckle headed" they're being, then they huff & puff and leave. Which is fine with me.
Unfortunately, according to Jack the Cat's Facebook page, he passed away yesterday.
I'm guessing you didn't read the whole thread since Jack's passing has been the topic of conversation for most of the posts in the last few days.
Sorry to hear of his passing. As a pet owner I know how attached one can become to a pet.
