‘Kitty T*tty Shutdown’: Woman breastfed cat on Delta Airlines flight to Atlanta
The flight crew had to send out a message when the woman refused to put the cat back in its carrier
Delta Airlines passengers were reportedly witnesses to a co-flyer "breastfeeding a cat" on a flight to Atlanta. A screenshot of a message which appears to be from the pilot or the crew has surfaced on the Internet and has now gone viral. The message suggests that the female passenger continued caring for her cat in a way no one could've imagined and refused to put the pet back in the carrier despite the crew requesting her to do so.
The incident as bizarre as it sounds is one of the many shocking things to happen aboard Delta flights. In October, a disruptive passenger was placed right at the back of the plane after she started making her own in-flight announcement with her own microphone and amplifier. The incident occured aboard a flight to New York City and was captured on camera and the video was then uploaded to TikTok. Needless to say, it was viewed and shared widely. The woman was attempting to lecture her co-passengers on "the reason the pandemic started" and flight crew rushed to ask her to go back to her seat. She kept pushing back to the point where crew told her they'd have to restrain her if she wouldn't follow instructions. “I don’t need to be taken anywhere. I don’t need to be cuffed. I’m completely harmless,” she said into her microphone. “Although, I think [the passengers] are enjoying this, because like I said, I’m not terrible to look at."
'Cat people are weird' says Internet
The in-flight Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System message, reportedly sent by the crew or the pilot, 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." The airline is said to have experienced an 84 percent increase in incidents related to emotional support animals in the past few years, prompting them to tighten regulations. However, this case is about the pet owner acting up and not the pet. Rules state that the pets need to remain in their carrier and placed in front of the passenger's seat during the whole flight but the woman refused to follow protocol, according to reports.
Social media has been buzzing with reactions after the incident made news, including the cliche, "cat people are weird." Another confused Twitter user said, "Can anyone tell me how one goes about breastfeeding their cat? I love my kitties but man... someone tell me how this happened." Another quipped, "Just when we thought we were all stocked up on crazy. But it's probably better than passenger-on-passenger or passenger-on-flight attendant violence." Another person tweeted, "Reality is undefeated with the weird shit." Another funny comment read, "Kitty Titty shutdown."
