LAX Cat Fingerprinting: A Simple Hoax or Sign of the Times?

Cat airline travel, formerly a feline right of passage, may soon go the way of the Hindenberg, if what the lady from Southwest says is true.

In a recent phone conversation with my partner Hank, the Southwest lady said the airlines are “straying away” from companion animal travel on their passenger planes.  I swear, that’s what she said and that’s the words she used.

This news comes as a major shock to me.  It just can’t be true.  How are Brody and Herman ever going to see Niagara Falls, the Big Apple, and the remnants of the Berlin Wall if they can’t fly?

Anyway, maybe it’s not true, because I just read another story about how incredibly misinformed some airline employees are about cats and travel.  In fact, as it turns, one new worker was actually telling folks they would have to get their cat fingerprinted if it traveled through Los Angeles International Airport.  Read about it here.

Well, I obviously need to get to the bottom of this one.  How about you, do you find that the airlines are “straying away” from pet travel, or has your little kitten been wracking up the free flyer miles no problem visiting a hot little Persian they met in Miami?

I’d love to hear what the real story is for jet-setting kitties, and the people who pack for them.

  1. I’ve never flown in an airplane with my humans. But you’re right, if humans do it, it is then our birthright to do it, too. Whatever it is.

  2. cat o' eight tails

    Solution: have one cat-dedicated flight a day. everywhere. anywhere.
    with all a cat needs: climbing trees, scratching posts, string, sunny
    windows, catnip, the pilot’s lap.
    of course a plane for dogs, too. and one for horses, guinea pigs,
    iguanas, etc.
    Pet Plane Corporation.

  3. cat o' eight tails

    pet plane cooperative corporation. planes powered by static electricity generated by cat fur. hairballs main in-flight snack. overhead bins full of pounce-obsessed would-be jaguar kittens…leopard kittens..Samuel L. Jackson shouting, “Get these motherfyretrucking kittens off my motherfyretrucking plane!”
