Missing Cat Found in Wrong Suitcase

150_GracieMaeRob Carter of Fort Worth, Texas arrived home from Chicago and collected his luggage at the airport -but picked up the wrong suitcase. He realized his error when he opened it at home.
Irked at his "own idiocy," Carter leaned over to zip it shut when a kitten popped its head out of a corner of the suitcase. The wide-eyed cat took one look at Carter and bolted under the bed. "I must have jumped six feet into the air and screamed like a girl," said Carter.

The next morning, he got close enough to see a phone number on the cat's collar and called Kelly Levy in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, who was frantic over her missing cat. When her husband Seth left for the airport, Gracie Mae had apparently stowed way in the suitcase. The ten-month-old cat still had stitches from being spayed a few days earlier. Carter delivered the cat to Seth Levy, who took her home with a proper airline ticket.
Carter said that he considered keeping the cat before he knew she had a home.

"If I couldn't have found a good home, I would have kept it," he said. "We were going to name it Suitcase."

Cargo holds are usually heated to at least 50 degrees on most airlines. I cant imagine the suitcase smelled very good once the cat was released. >.<
