A couple who planned a break to New York saw their holiday nearly ruined by their beloved cat who clearly just didn’t want to miss out on the trip or for them to go without her.
Nick and Voirrey Coole, were travelling from the Isle of Man to the USA to celebrate Nick’s 40th birthday when they were delayed at security at hand baggage control.
Their bag was pulled to one side by security offer for additional checking after being scanned the couple had no idea what they might have left inside that set-off alarms as they had ensured all the standard non-flyable items like liquid were not in the bag and panic set in.
It turned out that their pet cat Candy was the security breach after she snuck into their hand luggage before they set off to the airport.
Cat owner Nick, 40, said “We have three cats and one of them, Candy, loves to get into bags or boxes. Our hand luggage didn’t have much in it because we wanted to bring shopping home, but Candy had other ideas. She must have snuck into the bag before we left for the airport, but we didn’t hear or feel her at all on the journey there.”
Thankfully, the couple didn’t miss the trip were not and still made their flight on time as father, Barry, rushed to the airport to pick up the stowaway!
