Chester, a seven-month-old Scottish Fold kitten who was lost by Air Canada at the Montreal airport last month, has been found safe and sound — if a little skinny.

Owner Amanda Stewart, who lives in British Columbia posted a picture of Chester to Facebook today  along with the comments: "Omg omg omg" and "Hi everyone ITS BEEN CONFIRMED CHESTER HAS BEEN FOUND ALIVE.
 
Stewart said that while she's very happy that Chester was found, she is still upset with what she said was a lack of communication from the airline to the rest of the airport.
 
To get him back home, Stewart said she hopes that at the very least, Air Canada will allow Chester inside the cabin instead of putting him in cargo.

"I don't want him in cargo at all."

Here's an update on Chester

Chester's owner says her kitten will not be flying home in the cargo section of the airplane.

She says an airline employee in Montreal has taken Chester home with her to rest and will "escort" him on her lap during the 3,000 mile trip to make sure the kitten has a safe and secure flight to his new home in British Columbia.

Meanwhile, airline officials say no one knows how Chester escaped his cage on May 21.

That morning, Chester's Montreal breeder dropped him off at the Montreal Airport with Air Canada Live Cargo. Chester's new owner planned to meet him on the other end of his flight, in Vancouver.

He didn't arrive.

Two hours after Chester had been dropped off at the airport, Air Canada staff found his carrier, which had been locked and zip-tied, empty. The entire bottom of the cage door was no longer in its place.

Although the story ended on a happy note, his owner warned others: "Flying pets in cargo is not safe, ever."

Very glad they found a safer way for his travel, but how do they explain the missing cage parts ? There is no way the cat did that !

When I first heard this story I thought the poor kitty was a goner. I'm so glad to hear he is safe now.

First it was Chester. Now its Murphy who has been found safe after being missing for almost two years.

Never underestimate a dog’s loyalty -- or a family's loyalty to their dog.

Two years after Murphy the golden retriever vanished during a camping trip in California’s Tahoe National Forest, he’s been found alive and well.

The dog first went missing in October 2012. His owners, the Braun family, always held out hope they’d find Murphy again.

Finally, earlier this month, a camper spotted the dog eight kilometres from where he first disappeared and contacted the Brauns, who travelled back to Tahoe National Forest.

They spent days looking for Murphy without success, then left items with their scent at the camp site. The trick worked.

After 20 long months of being in the Tahoe National Forest, Murphy has come home,

Here's the TV News report:
