A scheduled flight from Doha to Abu Dhabi was forced to return to its origin after the cockpit was hijacked by a furry infiltrator. The clawful situation arose after a cat, thought to have stowed away during cleaning, woke up and became terrified by his new surroundings. He attacked the captain, causing the plane to return to Khartoum and giving passengers a hiss-terical story of a flight gone wrong.
I completely agree but am simply stating that unlike cats; dogs are able to stay calm on an aircraft indicating higher intellect. A friend of mine has a therapy dog which travels with him and although he is trained for those sort of situations I have no doubt a cat wouldn’t react the same way. Not to mention this isn’t a one off case.
