When you're a cat, the entire world is your box. Unless you condescend to agree upon house terms with some babbly hairless ape.

Fun fact:  There are two mammal bites that have a 60% chance of hospitalizing you with IV antibiotics, one is cat, the other is human.  So, a pissed off cat isn't something to ignore.

No snacks to distract it? Couldn't lock it in a bathroom for the rest of the trip?

Real reason is probably more about the metric farkload of paperwork involved with bringing an animal across the border(s), especially one that hasn't been approved by a veterinarian. Destination country would have put it in quarantine and demanded the airline take it back, and billed the airline big money - more than the cost of turning the plane around.

Yes they are very well armed. Cats can take care of themselves, but they want/need slaves.  Everyone knows a cat will jack them up if it wants to, but instead it purrs and is so soft so we do what they want.

Imagine if your cute pet cat was 50 lbs heavier. It would be a danger to the entire county!

The cat then did his best Edward G. Robinson, and declared "You mugs ain't gonna pin this thing on me, see?"

That is a motivated cat.

My sweet little black kitty used to get beat up by her sister and friends.  Now she is tuff. You annoy her, she doesn't back away or run, she stands up and has a sweet look on her face as she swipes at you. Then she will wait for you to look at your hand and see the blood, and she very patiently and sweetly asks if you want some more. She knows it hurts. There is no anger, only the warning she wants to give.

The trick is to not yank your hand away, then it's just a tap on the hand and a sweet lick to get you to stop. The claws are designed to prevent escape, the scratch is a warning to not try to escape, the lick is the 'please stop annoying me'.

Not sure what happened but I clicked the link for "who bags their weed like this" and ended up on a cat in a plane article.

I was very confused.

This.

I learned this growing up with a 30lb silver tabby manx named BT (for bobtail).  Looked JUST like a bobcat.   All fur, claw and muscle... well, and balls.  BT left lotsa little manx kittens around the neighborhood.

He was a sweetheart, though, if he thought you might have ice cream.  Cornered many a phone tech and meter reader because they looked like they might be carrying.

If he decided to take a swipe at you, he WOULD make contact.  Your reflexes weren't fast enough.  Your only hope was to just let him make a few punctures instead of long, ragged gashes.

You also learned how to get a badass cat to a vet.

/yes, with a box

They only do 1 point of impaling damage, but they get 10 attacks per round...
