update: I’m very sorry to report that Jack has passed away.  I hope he was with his human at the time…


This is always the biggest fear of traveling with your pets: will they be OK? In Jack’s case, he is now OK, but it probably has been a rough two months for him. He was found in the customs room at JFK after being lost since August 25, 2011. Apparently an animal attendant stacked his cage on top of another and it fell, opening the parts enough for him to escape.

This would have been a great use of those kitty-cams, the ones that take a photo every hour.  I’d love to see how he spent his last two months!
