"Angry cat" attacks pilot, forcing emergency landing

Wed Mar 03, 2021 10:26 am

I guess Kitty just didn't want to go to Doha. :D
Clicking on the Sudanese link, there is a picture which may or may not be the offender.

I'll do my own airline. With Blackjack. And hookers. In fact, forget the airline.

First point is that the Cat was feral. You do not want to mess with a feral Cat, (quite apart from the risk of rabies).

The Cat getting in does not surprise me. A few years ago, I recall having a very strange experience one evening. All evening, I kept getting this odd feeling that I was not not alone. Several times, I went round and found nothing. Later on, I was about to go to bed and this strange Cat came down the stairs. How it got in without me noticing I have no idea. Where it was when I checked earlier in the evening, I have no idea.

Still the Cat got back to Khartoum, and the passengers, (eventually) got to Doha.

30 minutes into its flight ... the cat suddenly emerged in the cockpit,


Made me wonder, how a cat could enter the cockpit - normally the cockpit door should have been locked during cruise... Anyway, after the ELAL incident earlier this year, seems that more and more cats tend to find shelter in planes! :thumbsup:

C'mon, put out a bowl of milk, problem solved.

Just kidding. I would have wanted the damn thing off my plane too.
Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world
The heart has its beaches, its homeland and thoughts of its own
Wake now, discover that you are the song that the morning brings
The heart has its seasons, its evenings and songs of its own

This is why cats rule the world, love this story! He decided Qatar was no place for a decent cat and he did what he needed to do!

Why can't the world be a little bit more autistic?

Hmm attacking the pilot in flight seems like a risky strategy to assure a long-lived reign. Maybe cats aren’t quite as smart as they’d like us to think!

My cat was pretty smart. He learned to never sleep on the upstairs banister again after he fell off! :rotfl:

The airport code is HSSS.
The captain's decision to return was PURRfect.
