  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

The seven-year-old Persian, had climbed into a suitcase at her home in Cairo, as her owner packed for a visit to her sister's home in Nottinghamshire.

The case was locked and nobody spotted the cat in security or customs, so she was put into the plane's hold along with hundreds of other bags for the six-hour flight to Heathrow.

Cats don't react to that sort of thing well.  It'll never trust a suitcase again.

aww poor kitty :(

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die liberty will never perish... Soldiers don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think or what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder... Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts.  You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts.

Wow I'm happy the kitty survived such a long flight in a suitcase, what a terrible thing to go through if you are a cat though.

If a cat could get through this unnoticed then how about a bomb? And with all these supposed terrorists around!
