According to the Associated Press, Rowdy escaped when she was being unloaded from a Lufthansa flight that she and her owners took from Germany to Boston.

“Lufthansa said that when unloading the flight Friday, Rowdy got out of her carrier first. We got told that yeah well, she got out and she’s just in the cargo area. So we thought, OK, they’ll find her,” Patty Sahli, one of Rowdy’s humans, told CBS.

For three weeks, the cat evaded capture, hiding out inside the airport and running whenever someone approached her. Finally, on July 13th, Rowdy was caught. She is finally on her way back to her family.

“I’m kind of in disbelief,” Sahli added to the outlet. “I thought, ‘What are the odds we’re actually going to get her back?’ But I got a call this morning, and I am just so shocked.”

According to the Associated Press, Rowdy will be on her way home after receiving a health check.

“It was such a community effort. We’re just so grateful to everyone who helped look for her,” Sahli said.
