Refueling? Rand Paul refusing a standard TSA procedure? Nope, it was a 10-year-old cat named Ripples that kept an Air Canada flight on the tarmac Friday in Halifax. The feline made it through airport security without a hitch, but set off alarms—in his owner’s mind, at least—with what happened after one of his carrier latches came undone during boarding. When pet and owner made their way onto the plane, Ripples took off, scampering down the aisle, through the first-class cabin, and into the cockpit, where he nestled into a wiring compartment. It took four hours for technicians to recover the cat.
