Rudy had to catch a flight from Seattle to Tampa, with a stop-over in Atlanta, to join his new family. Rudy is a hairless cat.
"We purchased the cat and we've been watching him grow and everything over the past four months," Tamsin Dayment told local news outlet WWSB. Dayment had bought the special hairless cat to join their cat-loving family, which has five rescued feline members already.
But something went wrong in Atlanta. Perhaps his crate tipped over during the stopover, or maybe a lock was loose and Rudy scurried out, but, on June 4, Dayment received a call from Delta Airlines saying that Rudy had been lost at terminal D24.
