Bob-bob the cat
ORLANDO, Fla. —

When an Ohio woman packed her bags for a Disney vacation, her cat didn't want to stay behind.

Sometime Monday, Bob-bob the cat found his way into Ethel Maze's suitcase, made it through screening at Port Columbus International Airport and was loaded into an airplane for a flight to Orlando.

According to reports, the black cat popped out when Maze unzipped her bag after checking into her hotel Monday night.

Maze, of Circleville, Ohio, said the 14-month-old cat was shaken but still purring.

Maze said she was part of a group of disabled veterans and volunteers making an annual trip to Orlando.

Mike Groleau, who handled the bags for the group, said he thought he saw the bag move, but loaded it along with the other bags heading to Orlando.
