Cat accidentally flies from FL to TX in suitcase

"How many lives did little tabby Gracie Mae use up when she crawled into her owner's suitcase, went through an airport X-ray machine, got loaded onto a plane, thrown onto a baggage belt and mistakenly picked up by a stranger far from home?" It's a happy ending! Kitty made it back home. Story is at:

    Gracie Mae sure is a lucky cat. Can you imagine the suprise of her poping out of the bag?? That must have been kind of funny. I am glad she is ok and back home with her family.

    happy for gracie and her family...question is now, how many of you now believe they\'re actually looking at those luggage x-rays? i mean, shouldn\'t a cat skeleton have gotten someone\'s attention?:-k

    There are several stories in the mews about this. In one of them the man who found her said he shreiked like a little girl when she popped out of the suitcase. Mommy laughed and was just happy the story had a happy ending.
