A feral cat did not respond well to an airplane environment, purportedly scratching and biting other passengers as it attempted to escape on a United Airlines flight.
Feral Cat Terrorizes United Airlines 737
We don’t have many details about the flight, but a video shows a squirming cat who manages to wriggle away from the arms of a woman before darting down the aisle of a Boeing 737 jet.
One of the passengers onboard tweeted to United, complaining that the cat was attacking other passengers:
Hey @united – there was a feral cat loose on my plane that was scratching and biting people. A bit traumatizing if you ask me!

When United did not respond back, the passenger sent video evidence:

That finally prompted a response from United:
Hello. Thank you for reaching out and taking the time to bring this to our attention. When you have a moment, please DM your confirmation number along with additional details of your experience so our team can investigate this matter further. ^CC https://t.co/Y6hG6uklaR

United Airlines does allow domesticated cats and dogs in its cabins, but they must be kept in a carrier underneath the seat in front of you. So-called “psychiatric service animals” are limited to dogs only.
Whatever that cat was (beyond upset), it certainly was not in a kitty carrier…
A diabolical cat terrorized a United Airlines flight, allegedly biting and scratching passengers as it attempted to evade capture. Just another reason I would not allow any animals in passenger cabins…
