    Aw, this makes Mom all leaky - poor Jack! He must be terrified. We will say purrayers that he's found safely and quickly! Please, Lord, send an angel to guide Jack to his rescuers.

    We have been following this. In case anyone remembers, VIVI, the little whippet, was lost and never recovered after slipping out of her crate at JFK some years ago. My brother works for Port Authority. He doesn't work at JFK any longer, and he works in a different division. The problem is that many of the people handling the animals, and the way the animals are handled by the airlines. After learning what I have, I wouldn't send my animal cargo. I would probably drive, or find a way to get the animal transported via a 'pet railroad'. I just don't trust the airlines, or the 'security procedures'. Animals are considered property. I would bet dollars to donuts that somoene either stole Jack, or opened a crate to pet him and he got out and is hiding somewhere in the airport. Cats as we know can squeeze into very small spaces. PS-the VETPORT, where many animals are boarded, has it's share of 'feral' cats around it. I always wonder if they are pets who 'escaped' their cages. I would not transport any of my babies by air.

    Poor Jack! I really feel for her mom, she must feel helpless moving clear across the country and now waiting around to Jack to be found with very few updates from the airline. I sure hope they find the poor guy!
