in Animal Stories

I was on a late night flight from DC to St. Louis. The flight was delayed, but eventually we boarded, and I settled into my usual aisle seat. I watched people board, and noticed a disheveled woman with an odd package. She was carrying a duffel bag type animal carrier that was absolutely squirming. Inside was what appeared to be a feral cat. I knew as soon as I saw her that this would be my seatmate. To my horror, my premonition came true. This cat was furious and absolutely terrified. Before we even took off it had used that carrier as a litter box/sick bag. For the entire flight it howled and spun around that bag stirring up its mess. The smell was unbelievable, and the woman appeared to not even notice! I wanted to leap out of a window. It was awful. Poor cat. Poor me.

This is why I believe they should not allow animals onboard. (I do think they should accomodate them in a pressurized area of the cargo hold). Good thing you were not allergice to cats!!!
