We are an independent publisher. Our reporters create honest, accurate, and objective content to help you make decisions. To support our work, we are paid for providing advertising services. Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Next” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. The compensation we receive and other factors, such as your location, may impact what ads and links appear on our site, and how, where, and in what order ads and links appear. While we strive to provide a wide range of offers, our site does not include information about every product or service that may be available to you. We strive to keep our information accurate and up-to-date, but some information may not be current. So, your actual offer terms from an advertiser may be different than the offer terms on this site. And the advertised offers may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the advertiser. All information is presented without any warranty or guarantee to you.

This page may include: credit card ads that we may be paid for (“advertiser listing”); and general information about credit card products (“editorial content”). Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Apply Now” button or “Learn More” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. When you click on that hyperlink or button, you may be directed to the credit card issuer’s website where you can review the terms and conditions for your selected offer. Each advertiser is responsible for the accuracy and availability of its ad offer details, but we attempt to verify those offer details. We have partnerships with advertisers such as Brex, Capital One, Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and Discover. We also include editorial content to educate consumers about financial products and services. Some of that content may also contain ads, including links to advertisers’ sites, and we may be paid on those ads or links.

Your Daily Happiness: Cat Gets Stuck Between Airplane Walls (Video)!

Signing up for credit cards through partner links earns us a commission. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. Here’s our full advertising policy: How we make money.

I just became a cat owner for the first time in my adult life.  And I can say for certain that cats are way easier to take care of than dogs, especially puppies!  They clean themselves, are almost always fully house trained, and sleep most of the day.

If your significant other needs a pet, there are worse options than a cat.

She Wanted a Cat.  I Didn’t.  So We Compromised!

But they can be anti-social and have a need to explore every nook and cranny.  So they are much more likely to get themselves into something they can’t get out of, like a tree…or in this case an airplane wall!

The best part of this video is how nonchalant the cat is about the whole thing, it looks like it could just hang out in the wall for a few hours, no problem!  I don’t know which airline this is, but if you can figure it out, please let me know in the comments.  The subtitles look French, so maybe Air France?

I’m pretty sure all airlines require cats in the cabin to be in their carrier at all times.  I’m guessing an overeager owner was trying to sneak in an illicit snuggle when this tragedy happened.  But based on the flight crew’s reaction, it’s safe to assume everything turned out okay for everyone involved.

If you’ve never flown with your pet before, check out our guide to pet-friendly airlines.  Flying with a pet is actually safer than you’d think based on what you see in the news.  Just note, if you have a short-nosed dog or cat breed (i.e. brachycephalic) most airlines won’t let them on board.  And it’s recommended you don’t take them on a plane even if they do.

So if you need to transport your Pug or Pekingese, check out our guide to train travel with pets.
