Couple Pulled Aside At the Airport After Pet Cat Was Found Inside Their Suitcase

 

Cats love to curl up and relax in cardboard boxes, but they also like to chill out in suitcases, says Jen Mills of the UK’s highest-circulating newspaper Metro. One notable example is that of Nick and Voirrey Coole, who were traveling from the Isle of Man to New York to celebrate Nick’s 40th birthday. 

One of their bags was left empty, as it was solely reserved for gifts. Then, the couple was stopped at an airport after an “item” was found in their suitcase. Nick and Voirrey were left wondering why their luggage was pulled out for additional checking. Surely, they did not leave anything there.

The couple became more worried when they were summoned into the interrogation room. They knew it was a serious case. Was it drugs? Nick and Voirrey were informed that Candy, one of their three cats, had snuck into their luggage. Fortunately, they were not prosecuted for the “item” they possessed and they still managed to catch their flight on time as Barry, Voirrey’s father, rushed to the airport to pick up the feline. 

According to Nick, Candy loves to “get into bags or boxes.” He continues, “Our hand luggage didn’t have much in it because we wanted to bring shopping home, but Candy had other ideas. She must have snuck into the bag before we left for the airport, but we didn’t hear or feel her at all on the journey there.” When Nick and Voirrey got to security, they did not need to check the contents of the bag since nothing was placed inside. The couple placed the suitcase on the conveyor belt.

Nick narrates, “Airport security were all very puzzled and repeatedly asked us if the bag was ours after it had been through the scanner. We ran out of ideas for what it could have been, and my wife even asked them ‘It’s not a cat is it?’”
