Jack the Cat, Lost by American AirlinesPublished August 31, 2011
Last Thursday afternoon, owner Karen Pascoe and her feline friends, Jack the Cat and Barry, were supposed to be being transported from New York's JFK International Airport to California. Before her flight even took off, however, Pascoe received a call saying that her cat Jack was lost; he had gone missing in the baggage claim area.
Since that point in time, Pascoe has been relentless in her search for her cat. Starting a Facebook page that has quickly (as the L.A. Times points out) transformed into a bit of a phenomenon, Pascoe has accrued a number of followers who have all assisted her in putting pressure on American Airlines to help find her missing cat.
This latest story re-raises past concerns about airlines having issues transporting animals.
Pascoe's original and unorthodox means of putting pressure on American Airlines seems to be working.
She has already received direct responses from American Airlines via their Facebook page regarding the status of the search for Jack.
Additionally, they have even gone on to invite Pascoe back out to New York to help assist in the search.
What do you think about Pascoe's relentless and unorthodox search for her missing cat? Would you do the same? Do you think Jack will eventually be found?
