A tabby cat named Pepper was on her way to China with her owner when she escaped her carrier during check in at JFK Airport in New York.
Unable to catch her, Pepper’s owner took her flight without her beloved cat. Pepper spent a week loose in JFK, despite the best efforts of some dedicated rescuers.
She was finally caught with the help of her owner’s roommate and her favorite food. Pepper is safe and sound at the roommate’s apartment, waiting for her owner to fly back from China for a second attempt to fly her to her new home!
Here’s a local news video documenting Pepper’s airport adventure!
