The latest Newark Airport security breacher? A kitty! The 25-pounder lodged itself under a bomb-detection machine yesterday morning, causing other passengers to be directed to a different security screening area.

The unnamed tabby was stuck for about 20 minutes when Port Authority police used a hydraulic device to lift the heavy machine (which weighs a few thousand pounds) and free it. According to, "the portly cat that had worked its way under 4 inches of clearance." It was removed from its carrier which needed to go through an X-ray machine.

One Port Authority officer said the cat "looked relaxed" throughout the whole ordeal. Typical. As for the humans, they missed their flight and will be attempting to fly out of the same airport today.
