TSA SHOCKED TO DISCOVER STOWAWAY CAT, SMELLS, IN LUGGAGE ON X-RAY SCAN
Cats are assholes. Ask any cat person, and they’ll confirm this undeniable, absolute fact. They may hem and haw about it. They may even deny it. But you will see confirmation even in their denials! I grew up a cat person, and while I don’t have to clean a litter box out anymore, I can still confirm this is true. And stories like this should provide some illumination to those who somehow don’t know. This time, a cat was being cute by playing the stowaway in someone’s luggage. The cat, Smells, snuck into the packed suitcase, curled up, and ended up trapped in the bag destined for a flight from JFK to Orlando. Fortunately, TSA managed to find this jet-setting wannabe on the security x-ray last week.
TSA WASN’T SURE AT FIRST WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING AT, THEN LET STOWAWAY CAT OUT OF THE BAG
Usually, TSA x-ray scans of baggage turns up all sorts of forbidden paraphernalia like guns, knives, drugs and other foolishness. But a pet cat playing stowaway was something they hadn’t confronted before! At first, they weren’t sure what they were really looking at on the x-ray scan pictured above. The wine bottle, glasses and flip flops are pretty clear. But what about that cartoon outline of some kind of animal? So when they checked the bag they were shocked to find a real, live ginger cat! It had managed to survive several hours in the suitcase with all the bumping about on the way to the plane.
STOWAWAY CAT SMELLS WAS UNFAZED AND FINE, BUT DELAYED TRAVELLER’S TRIP TO BEACH GETAWAY
But this cat, while being an asshole, knew enough to be grateful at its discovery and didn’t try to run away once TSA opened the bag. TSA then summoned the bag’s owner who was just as surprised at the stowaway kitty discovery. They explained it wasn’t their cat, but a roommate’s. Smells didn’t seem fazed or upset at the ordeal at all. He just had to get taken home by the delayed traveler, who rebooked and flew out a day later sans Smells. And that’s the latest news in how cats are assholes. It’s a special skill.
