A woman was reportedly caught trying to breastfeed her hairless cat while on a Delta Airlines flight – and refused to stop at the behest of a flight attendant.

The incredible incident on Delta Flight 1360 from Syracuse, New York, to Atlanta, Georgia, was relayed to the aircraft’s Addressing and Communications Reporting System (ACARS) by an airline employee. The message stated that a passenger in seat 13A “was breastfeeding a cat and would not return the cat to its carrier when (flight attendant) asked,” Newsweek reported.

Flight attendant Ainsley Elizabeth shared more details on TikTok.

“This woman had one of those hairless cats swaddled in a blanket to look like a baby,” Ainsley said in the Nov. 13 video.

“Her shirt was up and she was trying to get the cat to lock and she wasn’t putting the cat back in the carrier. And the cat was screaming for his life.

In a November 2 post on TikTok, Ainsley said security guards responded to the incident.

The Delta employee who sent the message during the flight asked the airline’s Red Coat team to meet with the passenger when the plane landed. The Red Coats are “elite airport customer service experts, identifiable by their bright red coats” who are “specially trained to handle the problems of ground-handling customers,” the airline’s website says.

It is not known what happened to the passenger after the plane landed.

The incident went viral after a screenshot of the message the Delta employee sent to the ground was shared on social media.

According to the airline’s website, she “fully supports a woman’s right to breastfeed on Delta and Delta connecting planes and at Delta facilities.” Delta allows passengers to bring small cats, dogs and birds into the cabin for an additional charge and animals must be kept inside a carrier that fits under the seat in front of them.

Delta’s lactation policy does not apply to animals, but it is unlikely to apply.
