MIAMI (AFP) — Just when he realized he had grabbed the wrong suitcase at the Dallas/Ft Worth airport's baggage claim, Ron Carter got a bigger shock as a cat jumped out of the bag, Florida's Sun Sentinel reported on Wednesday.
Carter only realized his mistake when he opened the suitcase at home. He was about to close it again when a 10-month-old cat popped its head out of the suitcase, took one look around and bolted under the bed.
"I must have jumped six feet into the air and screamed like a girl," Carter, 37, said, according to the daily.
He eventually coaxed the furry pet from under the bed, and noticed her collar featured the name and phone number of her owners, who had been frantically looking for their beloved "Gracie Mae."
The cat eventually was reunited with her owners in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
