QUEENS (PIX11) — A beloved feline air traveler has gone missing at JFK airport, Gothamist reports.

Gyzmo the cat, 4,  was arriving in New York from France Thursday night when it somehow escaped, the Port Authority confirmed.

Owner Agathe Louvet arrived at JFK’s Terminal 4 around 9:45 p.m. on French airline XL Airways flight SE40. When she went to retrieve Gyzmo, airline workers told her he had escaped when the flight arrived.

Gyzmo isn’t the only cat to disappear at JFK. In 2011, it took two months for 5-year-old Jack the Cat to be found after he was lost by American Airlines workers, and he later died of internal injuries he sustained while missing, Gothamist reported.

A 4-year-old cat named Xiaohwa was still missing as of January 2013 after she fled her carrier in Terminal 4 the previous October.

A friend of Louvet, Pauline Legay, told Gothamist that Gyzmo is loved by Louvet and her children, who are set to arrive to the states in three weeks.
