We all know cats love confined place, especially places with dark clothes to shed on. What better place than a packed suitcase for a nice nap. This kitty ended up at Disney World.

HAHA! That's so cute. When I first started seeing my SO, before I moved in, I'd come down for the weekend (we lived about an hour and a half apart). His cats, which are now my cats, used to fall asleep in my suitcase all the time.

Speaking about cats in suitcases, I so want to teach my cat to play this game:

This kitty apparently got taken to school in a backpack by his elementary school person.

TOTALLY something I would have done as a kid if I had more patient cats

OP's link is dead, here is a new one:

Mistaken Stowaway Cat Survives 10 Hour Journey in Suitcase

I always take out my backpack about a week before departure because it takes time for me to figure out what I am bringing. It never fails that my cat decides this is a cosy cat-nest for a snooze, and she does nap in there while it's sitting out. But if she somehow got stuck in there (highly unlikely, it is not a big pack) she would make a whole lot of noise.

I think the stowaway kitten was so young that she kept quiet out of fear and a feeling of self-preservation.

Oh, and in other news, a co-worker's mom just got back from an out-of-town trip and realized that she had a small box-cutter in her purse the entire time, making it through both TSA screenings.

I do a walk around the house before I go to work and make sure I know where my two cats are. I also make sure they don't sneak into the garage and then outside when I open the garage door. I can't imagine how you can have a cat in your suitcase and not know it. My cat Donald does seem to like clothes, and he will jump on the closet shelves, into drawers full of clothes. I've never seen him try to get into a suitcase.
