Missing cat who terrorised airport after escaping travel crate is finally caught

A missing black cat who escaped her pet carrier and terrorised airport staff after giving them the slip has finally been caught after three weeks.

Rowdy the cat eluded airport personnel, airline staff, and animal experts after getting out of her pet carrier at Logan International Airport in Boston before being captured yesterday (July 13), the Independent reports.

An airport spokesman said: “Whether out of fatigue or hunger we’ll never know, but this morning she finally let herself be caught."

Following a health check, Rowdy will go back to her family.

Owner Patty Nolet Sahli thanked airport staff for their efforts and posted on Facebook: "Boston airport employees, Massport, construction workers, Lufthansa and local animal advocates worked in a great [team] effort to locate her and safely trap her.

"She looks great, is happy to be with people and I am sure will be happy to be reunited with us. Thank you everyone for your support!”

Rowdy disappeared on June 24 when the family returned to the US from an Army deployment to Germany.

When their Lufthansa flight landed, the four-year-old black cat escaped her cage and set off in pursuit of some birds.

Her escape set off a massive search involving airport and Lufthansa personnel, construction workers, and animal welfare advocates, as well as the use of wildlife cameras and safe-release traps.

Lufthansa even hired a tracker to try and trap Rowdy.
