    Missing US Cat Found in France

    When Emily the cat went missing a month ago, her owners looked for their wandering pet where she had ended up before -- the local animal shelter. This week they learned Emily sailed to France.

    What a sweet story! I'm happy they found their kitty and I think it's so funny she sailed all the way to France!

    LOL, a world traveler!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Are you sure this wasn't Scott Peterson's cat and they just changed the names to protect the innocent (being the cat)?

    Curiosity -- or maybe it was a scurrying mouse -- almost got the better of a cat which found itself accidentally shipped off to France from the United States on a three-week journey at sea without water or food.

    "Now we have to see if the cat will go back alone or accompanied, and who is going to pay its plane ticket," Becker said. "We're ready to do a collection so she is reunited with her owners."

    How much does it cost to play a cat back? It can't be that expensive, unless the cat expects to fly first class! Can it?

    I though France was not "high" up on the list of "friends" of the USA.

    Maybe this cat can mend bridges...........and become an "Ambasador" to France from the USA..........he has already visited the country

    Emily the Stowaway Cat Lands in Wisconsin

    Emily the cat is back after flying home in the lap of luxury. The curious cat who wound up traveling to France in a cargo container touched down at the Milwaukee airport on Thursday, greeted by her family and a horde of reporters.

    A Continental cargo agent handed her over to 9-year-old Nick Herndon, son of the cat's owners, Donny and Lesley McElhiney. Emily meowed and pawed at reporters' microphones as the family answered questions.

    Her sumptuous return in business class on a Continental Airlines flight was a sharp departure from her trip to France, where she was found thin and thirsty but still alive.

    Continental offered to fly the cat home from Paris after Emily's tale spread around the world and she cleared a one-month quarantine.

    After one Continental employee escorted Emily from Paris to Newark, N.J., cargo agent Gaylia McLeod accompanied the cat aboard a 50-seater from Newark to Milwaukee.

    "I know it's close to the holidays," a tearful McLeod said. "I'm happy to be a part of reuniting Emily with her family."

    On her flight home, Emily passed up a menu of peppered salmon filet and "opted for her French cat food" and some water, airline spokeswoman Courtney Wilcox said.
