Scare at JFK airport in New York
This unusual story began when the luggage in question - belonging to a traveler leaving for Orlando (Florida) - was subjected to an X-ray scanner. It was in this context that an agent noticed that some thing was wrong. And the least we can say is that the latter was right since a chat was lying inside the bag.
« A Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officer was shocked to find a ginger cat in a checked bag at JFK airport after it walked through the x-ray unit “said in a tweet, Lisa Farbstein, spokesperson for TSA.

On the images shared on Twitter, we can clearly see the silhouette of the hairball, as well as its hair protruding from the luggage. Unsurprisingly, the stowaway, who was in good health, was taken out of the suitcase.
The cat found in the suitcase has returned to its home
Still according to the TSA, the tomcat has returned to his home. Therefore, a question is on everyone's lips: how could he find himself in such a situation? As the American media specifies, the feline does not belong to the owner of the bag, but to a person living with him.
