The Transportation Security Administration posted photos of an x-ray of a bag with a live cat trapped inside.

If it hadn’t been for the x-ray alerting officers to the stowaway, the cat would have been on a flight from New York to Florida.

”We’re letting the cat out of the bag on a hiss-toric find,” the TSA said in a Facebook post.

“This CATch had our baggage screening officers at John F. Kennedy International Airport – JFK saying, “Come on meow”!”

TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein said an officer was “shocked” to find the orange cat inside the checked bag.

“Traveller said the cat belonged to someone else in his household,” Farbstein said.

“On the bright side, the cat’s out of the bag and safely back home.”
