Today is full of good news for fans of frisky felines! First there was that kitteh saved on the Verrazano and now comes news that Jack the Cat, the adorable longhaired cat that was lost by American Airlines back in August, has been found! According to his Facebook page Jack was found in the JFK customs room and had his identity verified with a chip scan at a Queens vet. He's now under 24-hour care and is "dehydrated and has lost a good amount of weight, though [the vet] said that all things considered, he wasn't in bad shape." Yay for microchips!

Here's how American Airlines announced the news on its Facebook page:

American Airlines is happy to announce that Jack the Cat has been found safe and well at JFK airport. American's team of airport employees have been focused on the search effort since Jack escaped on August 25, 2011. Jack was found in the customs room and was immediately taken by team members to a local veterinarian. The vet has advised that Jack is doing well at present.

American's priority was advising Jack's owner, Ms Pascoe, which occurred immediately after he was identified. Now we are also happy to advise all other Friends of Jack of this wonderful news. American will fly Jack to California to be reunited with Ms Pascoe.

The ongoing search efforts to locate Jack have included many employees at the airport who have remained vigilant in their search and committed to finding Jack. We thank the Friends of Jack for their ongoing search efforts outside the JFK perimeter and share everyone's relief that he has been found.

Jack is now in kitty ICU on fluids, but appears to be okay and American says it will fly him back home to his owner when his health allows (they better!). In the meantime the media is going into overdrive to make Jack this month's Willow the Cat, with media requests already coming in from ABC News, 1010 WINS, NBC News, MSNBC and more. Jack the Cat, a furry feline who went to JFK's baggage area an anonymous feline and came out two months later a media star.
