Jack the Cat, who was lost at JFK airport over TWO MONTHS ago was finally found yesterday! Jack's back!
He was dirty, dehydrated, and skinny but apparently was surprisingly still in decent condition.
"American Airlines is happy to announce that Jack the Cat has been found at JFK airport.
American's team of airport employees have been focused on the search effort since Jack escaped on August 25, 2011.
Jack was found in the customs room and was immediately taken by team members to a local veterinarian."
We cannot begin to imagine what Jack's owner, Karen Pascoe, must have gone through these past months, but she must be so relieved that Jack is still alive after all this time.
American Airlines planned to fly Jack to Karen at her California home immediately, but, due to his condition, he is now under veterinary care.
American Airlines released an update on their Facebook page:
"As Jack has been on his own for two months, we have now learned that he will need to remain in the care of a veterinarian for an additional period.
Ms. Pascoe has been advised of these developments, and Jack will not be able to travel at this time due to the care and treatment he is receiving."
Jack is on IV fluids for his dehydration, so until he is fully healthy again, he will be unable to fly.
Regardless, it's incredible that this house cat survived for over two months in an airport.
We're so happy Jack is okay and hope he and his mama are reunited soon.
