JetBlue observation

My flight did not have any screaming babies on it, but it did have a very confused calico cat about four rows behind me. I found that odd. Since most cats associate being in the kitty carrier with going to the vet, I imagine the cat assumed it was going to some kind of evil Nazi vet. If we're going to allow pets on airplanes, we might as well let them run around and entertain the other passengers.

I didn't know they let pets on the plane like that. Interesting.

last time i was on a plane the cat behind my seat cried and pooped.

but the time before that it was an extremely elderly serbian woman who cried and pooped.

so the cat was better.

slappy!

I think the cat was probably stoned and visualizing gigantic mice trying to eat its head.

I'm still very confused how they can let animals on the plane.

I've sat right next to them before; One would think the airlines would have to notify you in advance, in case you were allergic.

I'm allergic to cats, but not so much.

I have a close friend though that breaks out in hives if she comes in contact with even the slightest amount of cat hair.

Yeah, I don't get that either. If you call and tell them you are alergic to peanuts, they'll go so far as to remove all the peanuts from the plane, so I'm surprised they don't have the same rules about pet alergies.

The last time I was on Jet Blue, I thought something was wrong with the guy in front of me, until I realized it was his tiny dog panting, and not him.

i have to give a shout out to miss kendra for the awesome black hat she's wearing in the picture below.

That does explain JetBlue's newest slogan: "If you're allergic to pets, go fuck yourself!"

But you know, the risk of death by anaphylactic shock is outweighed by the DirectTV. Plus, free cookies.

Kendra!

Evolution has led us to be irritated by cats in flight.

miss kendra said...

thank you allison.

the hat is a one of a kind "monster crochet" creation.

made with love, according to my specs, by the one and only lady linoleum.

Slappy: that was hilarious, dude.

I dodn't know you could have a carrier with the other passengers either. What if someone had allergies.....it would be kinda funny!

I'd rather see the pets in the cabin than in the underbelly storage area, but you'd think they would take allergies into consideration, what with the circulated air and all. Having ones bronchial tubes swell shut at 40,000 feet is NOT FUNNY. I've been there and the flight attendants are not equipped for that kind of emergency.

my cat agrees.
