“Airport cat is caught … finally”
A cat named Rowdy has finally been caught after spending three weeks on the run inside a US airport.
The four-year-old pet has been dodging airport staff, airline employees and animal experts at Boston’s Logan International Airport since escaping from his cage in pursuit of some birds.
“Whether out of fatigue or hunger we’ll never know, but this morning she finally let herself be caught,” an airport spokesperson said.
The black green-eyed cat was given a health check and is now set to return to her family.
“I’m kind of in disbelief,” said her owner Patty Sahli. “We’re just so grateful to everyone who helped look for her.”
Rowdy’s escape took place on 24 June after Ms Sahli and her husband Rich returned to the US after spending 15 years in Germany.
