Cat found in LaGuardia ceiling 11 days after going missing

Today an adorable story took place when a lost cat was reunited with it’s owner after going missing at LaGuardia airport for 11 days. The incident happened as the passenger was going through security screening and was told she had to take her cat out of her crate to pass screening. Apparently, the cat “freaked out” and got away to then hide in the ceiling of the airport. The cat was finally found 11 days later by a team of volunteers.

More information on the incident can be found here:


I personally think this story is simply adorable as everything ended well.

We would have welcomed it at Newark with open arms.

Or should I say, with open paws.

I don’t get why you would need to take it out of its cage like you know what’s gonna happen if you don’t have a good grip or the cat is strong enough to run away. it’s like having a cat at home and you accidentally keep the front door open, its gonna run away. (take my word on that i have personal experience,)

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve posted on the VA account by accident. I need help, lol.


Eleven days? Hmm. Last time I checked, cats only have nine lives. Something’s not adding up here.

I’m sure the owner was thrilled to have her cat back. Lovely story.
