Purrfect Ending: Pepper The Cat Rescued From JFK Airport

Purrfect Ending: Pepper The Cat Rescued From JFK Airport

The Port Authority police officers, determined to reunite the feline with her owner, continued to search the airport. "Pepper jumped onto the check-in counter, then leapt onto a low roof of the check-in kiosk and disappeared".

Pepper's harrowing adventure began on April 20th, when her owner, who was relocating from NJ to China for work, was checking in for her flight.

Nuan Tang, a friend of the owner of the cat - named Pepper - who had cared for the animal on occasion joined Port Authority cops on the hunt for the elusive 4-year-old tabby at JFK's worldwide terminal at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

Within 15 minutes, Pepper recognized Tang's voice and scampered from her hiding place all the way to the cat carrier.

PA Police Officer Kameel Juman, who was leading the search efforts, told CBS New York that when he heard Pepper was missing, "I was just sad. Police say Tang also enticed Pepper with some of her favorite foods". The 4-year-old tabby had bolted from her owner at Terminal 4 on April 20 as they were preparing to board a flight to China.

The search party had spotted Pepper periodically before she was caught. The Daily News called her a "phantom-like cat" after Port Authority police shared a picture on Thursday in which her eyes appeared to eerily glow.

"We were so devastated", Tang said.

Pepper is now recovering at Tang's house until she is ready to be reunited with her owner.

"The pigeon population in the terminal declined when she was there", he joked.
