Jack (c. 2005 - November 6, 2011) was a Norwegian forest cat who was lost on August 25, 2011 by American Airlines baggage handlers at John F Kennedy airport before Hurricane Irene. A campaign "Jack The Cat is Lost in AA Baggage at JFK" was started by animal lovers to help find him, with over 24,000 Friends of Jack joining the associated Facebook page. Almost two months after he went missing, the campaign designated October 22 "Jack the Cat Awareness Day". The cat was found shortly afterwards on October 25 but was severely dehydrated and malnourished after his 61 day ordeal. Due to infection and injury, Jack was euthanized on November 6, 2011.
