    I'm not sure which I enjoyed more, the look on the cat's face or the one on the pilot's.

    Luckily a good outcome.

    Could so easily have turned into a catastrophe. I bet the pilot was having kittens when he spotted it.

    Just the very best film ever

    But if the cat had gone the other way into the control wires........doesn't bear thinking about.

    I guess we're not feline it the same, Russ. Although, to be fur, she looked pretty catatonic when he first pointed it out to her. On reflection, and after paws for thought, you might be on to something. At least they all landed on their feet.

    I bet that was the 9th time the cat had a safe flight.
    Next time it will be raining cats and ... well, cat wee.

    You've just taken that too fur
    If I am ever on life support - switch me off and back on again - see if that works
