It is not uncommon for airport agents to find drugs or weapons in suitcases. This time, the finding is quite different. On November 16, agents at JFK airport in New York (USA) discovered a cat in luggage, reports NBC News.
The suitcase had been recorded by a traveler departing for Orlando, Florida, with a connection at; Atlanta. The baggage is therefore passed; in a scanner at X-rays. that time that an agent saw a suspicious shape on the screen of the device.

The owner of the case didn’t notice anything
The Security Administration des Transports (TSA) has also published photos this Tuesday on Twitter. We can clearly see the animal, in the suitcase, lying down. among other objects. On one of the pictures, we notice red hairs protruding from the luggage. The cat was got out of the suitcase and was able to return to his house, where he is now safe, said; on Twitter, TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein.
According to our colleagues at NBC News, the cat does not belong to the owner of the luggage but to the owner of the bag. someone living in his home. He would have slipped in the suitcase without the traveler noticing.
