Nervous Fat Cat Stuck in Airport
Two days ago, a fat nervous kitty got herself lodged under a bomb-detection machine at Newark Airport during the morning rush hour, making its owner miss her flight to Florida and go through 20 minutes hassle to get her out again.
A woman and her young daughter had the brown-and-black cat in a carrier but when they removed it so the container could go through the X-ray machine, the freaked-out feline ran under the CTX explosive-detection device, Port Authority officials said.
They didn’t think of opening a jar of tuna to lure her out again or giving her a cat treat, instead they called the police who tried using a snare to get her out but the cat avoided it cleverly.
They then used a hydraulic device to lift the thousand pound CTX machine and free the fat cat that had worked its way under 4 inches of clearance.
