Passenger On Flight 'Breastfed Cat And Wouldn't Put It Back In Carrier'
| Last updated
Stop what you're doing - a woman has apparently been breastfeeding a cat on a plane.
Yep, you read that right.
A viral screengrab purportedly shows an Aircraft Communications, Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) message from Delta Air flight DL1360 to Atlanta, USA, detailing the bizarre occurrence on the plane.
The message - seemingly written by the pilot - indicates that the woman refused to put the cat back in its carrier upon request, so they called for Delta's Redcoat ground team to bring in backup.
The message reads: "Req Redcoat meet AC Pax (passenger) in (seat) 13A is breastfeeding a cat and will not put cat back in its carrier when FA (flight attendant) requested."
I saw this on Reddit today. It’s an a ACARS in-flight message from the cockpit to the ground.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) November 24, 2021

Unfortunately/fortunately, we have no further evidence of this cat boob suckling at this time, which seems surprising.
Surely, if you're on a flight and a woman starts breastfeeding a cat, you get your phone out and start filming, right?
Or perhaps you'd just be so shell-shocked that you wouldn't be able to move, transfixed by the horrific spectacle unfolding before you.
Hopefully we'll get the visual evidence we need soon enough, or hopefully we won't, depending on how you look at it.
LADbible has contacted Delta Airlines for a comment.
Last month, a traveller was horrified to see the person behind them on a plane stick their bare feet under their chair.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, many people might have forgotten what it's like to hop on a plane and travel somewhere.
But the image you're about to witness might remind you of some of the less enjoyable aspects of travel.
The photo was shared on Reddit, where people suggested ways to combat this toey intrusion.
One person suggested: "Nah, gotta be more passive aggressive about it. Ask the flight attendant for coffee. Make it extra hot. Accidentally spill it all over the feet.
"Plausible deniability, and as an added bonus maybe the heat will kill some of that toe funk and do em a favour."
Another said: "Don't just stomp. What you want to do is plant your heel on the toes. And stand up."
