A cat was caught in a passenger's carry-on luggage at a TSA checkpoint at the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. The traveler, who was headed to Melbourne Orlando International Airport, told authorities the cat belonged to someone else in his household and he was unaware that it made its way inside his luggage.
