Stowaway Kitty

Not many news stories make me cry, but, upon hearing about 10-month-old Gracie Mae's crazy Goonie adventures, I had to fight back tears:

Some kitty math: How many lives did little tabby Gracie Mae use up when she crawled into her owner's suitcase, went through an airport X-ray machine, got loaded onto a plane, thrown onto a baggage belt and mistakenly picked up by a stranger far from home?

"She's got to be at four or five now," Seth Levy said after his 10-month-old pet was returned Sunday night by a kind stranger who went home to Fort Worth, Texas, with the wrong bag and Gracie inside to boot....

The tabby made the 1,300-mile trip home on an $80 plane ticket.

[Thanks to Ellen and Superbadfriend for sending me this and also drawing parallels to my Pork Chop's suitcase adventures and his subsequent return. And how did Pork Chop's Mexican Hat Dance rack up more than 7,000 views?! You people crazy!]
