Be careful when you pack a suitcase, because a container full of clothing may be irresistible to your cat! Mervat Ciuti flew from Cairo to London with a large suitcase, but had no idea her persian cat Bisou was in it.
Bisou slipped through security at Cairo unspotted and was stacked into the hold of the plane with hundreds of other bags.
It was only when Mervat's mobile rang while she was in a taxi on the M1 up to Notts – after the six-hour flight landed at Heathrow – that she realised what had happened.
A relative back home in Cairo had realised the cat – who normally never leaves the house – was missing, and frantically called her owner.
Monica, 40, said: "When she realised what had happened she said she was trembling. She thought she would be dead.
But Bisou survived the 3,400 mile trip, despite being zipped in a suitcase in the cargo hold with hundreds of other bags. Unfortunately, after traveling internationally, the cat is in quarantine in England, but should be reunited with Ciuti by summer. Link (with video) -via Arbroath
