This story has touched my heart for many reasons. I am an animal lover and traveled by air with my pets many years ago as I have previously written. I would never consider doing it again unless absolutely necessary as was the case here. Jack the Cat somehow got out of is carrier as he was waiting to be boarded on an American Airlines flight at Kennedy Airport heading to his new home across the country with his owner. I have been following the story since it first broke and have been re-posting updates hoping to keep the story alive.
Update on Jack the Cat as of this morning, 9/30/11:
