During the short flight from Europe, no problem, except that cat Victor did not like to fly. But beside his master, he felt safe. Cat adventure began on the way to Vladivostok.
At Sheremetyevo airport, the employee of airline “Aeroflot” said Michael, that the weight Victor two pounds exceeds the weight of the animals, which are allowed in the cabin. Therefore, the passenger offered to take your pet in the Luggage compartment, where the cat had to spend the entire flight time is about 8 hours.
Michael decided not to subject your pet to such stress and instead went to the trick. The man changed the tickets to another flight, and among its subscribers in the social network found a cat that colouring is similar to Victor, but weighs less. Understudy, Victor was a cat named Phoebe. It was her male presented for examination, when they passed the flight check-in. After successful registration, Phoebe went to the hostess, and her place in the carry took Victor. So, Victor got on a plane (Yes even in business class!) artifice.
