Woman breastfeeding cat on plane: Here's the TRUTH behind trending video
'This woman had one of those, like, hairless cats swaddled up in a blanket so it looked like a baby,' a flight attendant said
A weird incident that happened in late November left many people disgusted. Reportedly, a woman on a Delta Airlines flight from Syracuse to Atlanta was seen “breastfeeding a cat”. A flight attendant also reportedly confronted her and asked her to put the feline in its cage. But to no avail.
At the time, a message was shared by the airline's communication system that stated, “Passenger in 13A is breastfeeding a cat and will not put cat back in carrier when requested.” A flight crew member described, “this woman had one of those, like, hairless cats swaddled up in a blanket so it looked like a baby… her shirt was up and she was trying to get the cat to latch and she wouldn’t put the cat back in the carrier.”
And, now taking inspiration from the alleged original incident, a Facebook user who goes by the name of Mr Gooch created a skit based on it. Mr Gooch shared the skit on December 16 that showed a woman nourishing her cat on a flight as a male passenger freaks out and says, “She’s breastfeeding a cat.” As flight attendants try to convince the man that breastfeeding a toddler is allowed on the plane, he keeps insisting that it’s not a baby and an animal.
“IT IS A CAT… I TOLD YOU,” the passenger yelled, to which the woman in question responded: “It’s a lynx, not a cat. There’s a big difference.” The video ended with the woman getting up from her seat and revealing that it’s a fake cat. Mr Gooch’s work has been viewed two million times and attracted thousands of comments. A person wrote below it, “Never seen anything like that before, what a laugh.” The second one commented, “Omg, I had to watch it again. This is hilarious.”
A user seemingly did not understand the point of the whole video and wrote, “Omg this world will show us things i can't imagine a human being breastfeeding a cat and why is this also silent this is witches.” Another one stated, “lady and all who helped in the film should be charged with a crime, delaying an aircraft from performing its flight.” “These videos are so so stupid where do they come up with these dumb idea’s,” the third one added. A comment read, “It's ridiculous if she's actually breast feeding a cat lol. But why can't you breast feed a baby on the plane. That's discrimination there's nothing wrong with breastfeeding your baby in public.”
