Really, TSA agent Brown, that's not even my cat!

"Really Mr. TSA agent, my wife told me she wanted her pussy stuffed"

"The cat did not belong to the individual with the suitcase, it belonged someone else in the household,"

Another reason to never refer to it as *your* pussy, only *the* pussy.

That's what you get for letting Aunt Bethany pack.

When I was a kid we once took a road trip to stay with my aunt for a while. On the way home, after unloading the car at a motel we saw a black cat outside that looked just like the one which had been hopping into my mom's suitcase while we were packing. We called my aunt and fortunately it was a different cat. Her little hellbeast was still safe at home.

So, who let the cat out of the bag?
 
2022-11-23 1:52:28 AM  
1 Star.  Luggage contained housecat.  Would not pack again.

As almost any cat parent can attest, open suitcases are inviting targets for loving felines.

"I think one reason is that it's like a cat bed. Cats like spaces with barriers around it," Cornell University professor emeritus and animal behavioral expert Katherine Houpt said.


Katherine is obviously not a cat owner. I can make my bed, clean my room, and when I take off my shirt and put it on the bed my cat will sniff it and lay on top of my shirt instead of the vast clean, nicely made bed.

A suitcase is also a box, which is nature's cat trap.

Your cat likes your scent. Your scent is in a box. The cat gets into the box to see why you were there, and it's soft and fun and she can hide.

Why wouldn't you get into a suitcase if you were a cat?

Houpt said she takes no chances and packs her bags on an elevated rack.

Yeah, I'm real sure that will stop a determined cat from jumping right on in.

Before I take off before a trip, I make sure to say good bye to Buddy.  TBH, I do that to make sure he did not sneak into the garage as I was moving my luggage before my departure.

Hopefully he isn't dumb enough to sneak into my suitcase.  I am fairly certain of that...however, he once stood over a lit candle in my bathroom. (Thankfully, I removed him before his skin burned.)

I had a buddy (John) in college who had a cat.  (I know, amazing, right?  A real cat.)

Anyway, one day we were sitting in John's living room, and his cat was lazily watching us humans rip bong hits when he looked at the cat and said, "Wanna see something funny?"

"Sure - what?"

"Watch this."  He stood up, went into the garage and came back with an empty cardboard box.  The cat pricked up its ears and began to watch him attentively.  John began to pick things up off the coffee table and put them in the box.  The cat sat up.

John then carried the box out to his pickup and put it in the bed.

Cat runs out the door and jumps into the bed of the truck.

"Damn cat is so used to moving, that's all I gotta do.  He doesn't want to be left behind."

I believe that TSA regulations indicate you're supposed to refer to it as "a live cat", not "your live cat".

My aunt was leaving to get groceries, and since they live out in the sticks it'd take a couple hours. They were backing out of the driveway when she had to run inside to quickly check to see if they were out of something in the freezer. She opens the big chest freezer and out jumps their cat. Talk about having nine lives. Cats need it because they're so stupid.

TSA: Has anyone given mew anything or asked mew to carry on or check any items for them?

Legitimately a concern of mine that the cat has gone somewhere and been locked in when I travel.

Meanwhile, in 2017, my girlfriend bought a new suitcase and made a discovery, she fits.

Over the weight limit of a single bag, though.

If you want to know how she got in there, read this Weeners, then scroll up til you hit the first picture.

For unknown reasons, a flask of poison, a radioactive substance, a hammer, and a Geiger counter were also found in the suitcase.

And I also say good bye because I love the little dude.  He is 14 right now, so I have no idea how many years he has left.

Essentially, the point I am getting at is that you should give your cat a hug.

We in Tennessee know what a bagel is. It's a small dog with floppy ears.

I would say she looks very slim, but what about the weight of the suitcase?

We don't mind cats in checked luggage.  It helps cut down on the mice in the cargo compartment.

I assume that John is a big fan of "The Jerk".
