When your cat escapes on a plane, it’s always nice to have a little help.
So that is what one flight attendant offered when an orange tabby made its way out of the first-class area and back to where everyone else was sitting.
The cat made took part in its adventure when on a United Airlines Flight that had departed Dallas and was headed to San Francisco.
It roamed the cabin, clearly without concern, before the flight attendant reeled it in. She then carried the cat around and asked if anyone had lost it — all while the cat more or less just seemed to enjoy the experience.
Of course, cats generally have a limit on how long they’ll let you keep them in your control, and this one was no different. It eventually broke free and sprinted down the aisle once again. The video has since gone viral.
But a cat-astrophe was avoided after the rightful owner finally claimed their kitty, returning to first class. Or in this case, perhaps it was purr-st class.

According to United Airlines, pets must travel “in either a hard-sided or soft-sided carrier that fits under the seat in front of you.” Pets must also be able to turn around in their carrier, so it has to be roomy.
And apparently, the pets will tell you, they also need to be able to escape.
