A hairless cat that was in transport via Delta airlines, was suppose meet his new owners in another country.  The feline was being flown from Canada to Florida.  The family had purchased the cat from a breeder and was looking forward to meeting the cat for the very first time.  But something happened and the cat went missing.  When the cat arrived in Atlanta for a stopover, a baggage handler accidental broke the crate the cat was traveling in and he escaped.  But the family was not immediately notified and after four hours of being missing, the airline informed the family of the missing cat.  This was upsetting to the new owner, who thought the cat had boarded a plane headed to Tampa, Florida.

Once the family got the news that their new kitten was missing, they quickly offered a reward for his capture.  The family spoke with the media about the incident and started a Facebook page dedicated to his safe return.  A reward of $2,000 was posted in hopes of quickly finding the cat.  After searching high and low for the cat and several days going by, the feline was finally located.  A Delta employee found the kitten and brought him to safety.  The feline was checked out by and Vet and returned to his owner.

Every employee at that airport wanted to find Rudy, especially those who worked for Delta!!
