A cat from the Isle of Man apparently decided that if her family was heading overseas for vacation, she was going too.

Candy was found in her owners’ carry-on luggage at the island’s airport, the BBC reports.

Nick Poole wrote on Facebook: “You know that feeling, when you get ushered into a side room at airport security because you’ve got a cat in your hand luggage.”

He added: “Fair play to airport security for helping to get her home so we could catch our flight.”

Nick and Voirrey Coole, who were bound for New York, didn’t face any repercussions for having the cat with them. Friends picked up the pet and took her home, Time magazine reports.
