Jack the cat found at JFK airport
Jack the cat found at JFK airport, There’s a happy ending for the tale of a cat who has been missing for two months, and a South Florida woman played a big part in spreading the word through social media of his disappearance.

Jack the cat was found by workers at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, the location where he disappeared. He was found in the customs room Tuesday by a team of American Airline employees who took him to a local veterinarian to get checked out.

The airline said in a statement that “the vet has advised that Jack is doing well at present.”

On the facebook page ‘Jack The Cat is Lost in AA Baggage at JFK’ an updated was posted stating that, “They report he looks tired but bright-eyed and dirty. He’s in kitty ICU on fluids.”

Owner Karen Pascoe was immediately informed that her pet was found and the airline will fly Jack to California to be reunited with his family.

Jack was en route to California when he escaped from his crate on August 25th.

The news set off a kitty amber alert and a facebook campaign, led by a South Florida woman, to bring back Jack. Mary Beth Melchior led the effort to find Jack, which took off thanks to social media.

Jack the cat has gained a following on facebook and Twitter since he got out of his American Airlines carrier in the baggage area.
