A tortoiseshell cat decided to take an unauthorized walk while mid-air on a Delta flight, and the resulting video quickly went viral with headlines such as “hilarious mid-flight video,” “cat stalking Delta plane and terrifying flight attendant,” and more along those lines. The video shows the tortie walking into the galley area of the plane while a flight attendant tries to get her to sit like a dog. Eventually, the cat’s owner responds to the flight attendant’s page and shows up with a backpack. According to The Mirror, she was able to coax the cat back into the bag easily. I may be in the minority, but there’s not much about this video that I find amusing. Accidents happen, and we don’t know why the cat got out of her carrier, but all I could think of while watching the video was what a disastrous end this could have had for the cat. Read the full story and watch the video on The Mirror.
