Thanksgiving weekend is among the busiest journey weekends of the 12 months. With plenty of vacationers come plenty of baggage…the storage sort, not the private sort. The Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) should get a whole lot of “free Christmas presents” from all of the contraband they confiscate throughout this time of 12 months. Lighter, cigar cutters, pepper spray, knitting needles, nail information, liquids – their quest to maintain us secure from the horrors of midair nail clipper threats depart them with a whole lot of “free” merchandise to choose by.
TSA brokers in New York Metropolis bought a shock final week once they discovered one thing bit extra attention-grabbing than a forgotten bottle of water. Because it seems, a cat was found in a checked bag at John F. Kennedy Worldwide Airport. Much more attention-grabbing? It wasn’t the traveler’s cat, nor did he notice he was carrying cat contraband.
The incident came about Nov. 16, a TSA spokesperson advised KTLA sister station WPIX on Tuesday. The cat went undetected till it the bag was handed by an X-ray unit, triggering an alarm and giving a “shock” to the on-duty TSA officer upon its discovery, TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein wrote on Twitter.
The frisky feline belonged to a different one that lived with the traveler, and should have jumped into the suitcase because it was being packed. The orange cat was then zipped up inside with out anybody noticing. The traveler solely knew of the incident when he was contacted by airport officers as soon as by safety.
The cat was unhurt, however a really particular Thanksgiving lesson was realized by all:
If it suits, I sits, so zip earlier than I sits!
