I have never seen anything like it. It is bizarre. A cat roaming around free on an airline flight standing on his hind legs meerkat-style howling at another cat on a lady’s lap. The lady has bare legs. Watch out lady! The cat looks like a miniature human complaining to another passenger.

The airplane is rocking slightly and the cat adjusts and stays upright. OMG, it is weird but enjoyable. It looks like it could be fiction but I don’t think it is. Don’t forget to turn on the sound by clicking on the sound icon bottom right after the video starts playing.

Cats sometimes get lost at airports, we know that. Chaos ensues. Pets and therapy animals can be taken into the cabin on American interior flights. It can get quite exciting it seems; a bit like Noah’s Ark. A glimpse into the future when the planet returns to the animals.

    Airlines are tightening up requirements regarding “emotional support animals” being allowed out of the carriers in the cabin due to incidents of biting and animals urinating and defecating in the cabin. Currently there is no requirement that the passenger provide any documentation to the airline that the ESA has been trained in any way and will not create havoc in the cabin. A whole cottage industry on the internet provides certificates for travelers wishing to avoid the pet fees on flights to be able to say their pet is an ESA. All you have to do is answer a few questions, pay a fee, and a “vet” will sign and send you a certificate in the mail that the animal is an ESA. What could possibly go wrong with that? Just exactly what is happening, people get bitten and pets urinate and defecate in the cabin.

      Thanks. I had read and written a page on the tightening up of emotional support animal rules as it was being abuse. Airlines were becoming zoos.

  2. Cats/small dogs belong in a carrier,the owner is irresponsible.

      The airlines allow ESA to be out of the carrier. They do not require documentation that the animal has had any behaviour training. People want to avoid the pet fee. And this proves that it is a disaster.
