Cat Determined To Take Trip

This little furry friend would not be left behind... from Yahoo News:
OTTAWA (AFP) - An adventurous tabby took an unexpected trip this week, after slyly crawling into her keeper's luggage and clearing lax Canadian airport security, local media said Wednesday.

Mary Martell unwittingly traveled 1,400 kilometers (870 miles) from Saint John Airport on Canada's Atlantic coast all the way to Toronto, then to Niagara-on-the-Lake by car with the live cat in her suitcase.

She told public broadcaster CBC the bag was scanned at the airport, but she was not stopped and it was eventually loaded into the airplane's cargo bay.
Martell said she only discovered Ginger, the family pet, when she opened her luggage in a hotel room, after the three-hour journey. The cat had apparently snuck into a bag while Martell was packing.
A Hat Tip to Fark.
