RIP Jack

It is time for airlines to revamp their rules for how baggage is handled.  The airline industry has not only being ripping off their customers by demanding ridiculous fees for "real" luggage but the way that traveling pets are treated is disgraceful.  The recent disaster created by American Airlines in the treatment of Jack the Cat should be a huge wake up call to the industry!  Animals are living beings, they are not baggage!  If an airline cannot provide a safe travel environment for a pet, they should stop thinking about the mighty dollar and honestly tell a potential passenger the truth.  Traveling with a pet that gets put in cargo is inhumane!  Rest in peace Jack and may no other animal experience the horror of what you endured in the last two months of your life.
