WATCH: Airplane Flight Features Adorable Cat Stowaway

Aviators around the world, please include cats among your pre-flight checklist.

Not doing so will lead to quite the incredible surprise as you soar amid the clouds as one pilot found recently.

Romain Jantot (h/t Digg) uploaded the following video to YouTube, which features a brief plane flight and a rare cameo from a local cat.

A feline passenger is pretty much the last thing you would expect to see as you take off, which is just part of the reason this video is going viral.

The other is the pilot’s face the minute he realizes this party of two was in fact a three-person voyage.

Jantot explains on YouTube, via Google Translate, “I still do not know if it got in after the pre-flight check or if I missed it.” Jantot continues, “The cat is doing well, she is still our mascot.”

This is obviously the kind of video that resonates well with the Internet, garnering over 600, 000 views since just June 21.

And with that a leisurely flight around the area is cut drastically short when the pilot realizes he has to make a quick landing because one passenger isn’t quite buckled in.

Bystanders had to wonder what caused the plane to make just one pass before landing before spotting one of the more adorable stowaways in aviation history.
