Cat Lost At Boston Airport Reunited With Her Family [Video]


  • A cat managds to get out of her carrier at the airplane’s cargo when they landed at the Boston airport.
  • For three weeks, airline and airport staff and even local animal advocates searched for the missing kitty.
  • Rowdy has been captured and was reunited with her family.

After her family’s military deployment in Germany, Rowdy the kitty, came home to Boston with her family.  Maybe she needed to stretch her legs, Rowdy managed to get out of her carrier at the airplane’s cargo.

The 4-year-old black cat was discovered missing by her family when she was not at the pickup point.  This led her mom, Patty Nolet Sahli, to post her disappearance on different social media platforms.

Sahli wrote, “The airline lost my beloved cat at Boston Airport. “I am worried sick.”

Rowdy became the subject of a cat hunt that involved the airport employees, Lufthansa airlines, construction workers, Massport, and even local animal advocates.  They used a tracker from the airline, safe-release traps and cameras.

Sahli wrote on her posts, “They have set traps with food and water and my clothes items in the basement where they believe she ran. We are also sending them voice recordings from family. We also have her favorite treats being placed with the cages.”

Rowdy eluded their attempts to capture her for three weeks.   From time to time, she can be seen on cameras all over the airport.  But her life on the run came to a stop when an airport employee caught her.

Sahli wrote in a post, “She was captured at a feeding station they had set up for her.  They had been seeing her over and over in a certain area so they knew she was in the area. The airport workers and everyone involved helped us so much with the effort.”

Welcome home, Rowdy! In your family’s arms is where you belong, not at the airport.

Thank you for showing the saving of 3 raccoons from a dumpster. Today’s video showed a woman using her broom to help them escape. Today, while taking out trash, I saw 3 juvenile raccoons inside the dumpster unable to get out. I used my broom and one escaped using it. An animal control officer got the remaining 2 out safely within a quarter of an hour. So all 3 were rescued. Considering the heat, the officer said they would have died if not rescued by the afternoon.
