In response to the Northern Alberta wildfires that devastated Fort McMurray 5T and WS both gladly broke the rules to allow displaced residents fleeing the fires to travel with their pets in the cabin.
"Many of the evacuees from the Northern Alberta wildfires have been traveling with their beloved pets. We love animals, too, so we've been happy to help bring them to safety," Canadian North said on Facebook.
But one 5T passenger had even more pressing matters to deal with as she was about to go into labour. 5T staff volunteered to cat-sit Meow Meow until after Krystal Scott was able to get re-settled in Calgary.
According to Canadian North's Facebook and Twitter updates, the cat soon became a valued member of their team. Staff members even gave Meow Meow a desk so that she would have a suitable spot to conduct important cat business.
Meow Meow proved herself to be such a diligent worker that airline crew even provided her with an official name tag. "They figured that if she's going to be part of our team she might as well have proper identification," the Edmonton Flight Ops team wrote on Facebook.
In an update posted to the airline's Facebook page, Scott thanked 5T for looking after Meow Meow and said the family was settled in Calgary and still waiting for the baby to arrive.
Canadian North's Facebook page has since been flooded with supportive comments from people around the world and Meow Meow has been granted personal time off from her flight ops duty to be with Krystal again.
