TSA officers found a live orange cat inside a bag at JFK airport.

QUEENS, New York (WABC) -- TSA officers made quite the 'CAT-ch' after they found a live orange cat inside a bag at JFK Airport in New York City.

As you could imagine, the officers were quite shocked.

As the bag went through the X-ray unit Nov. 16, the Transportation Security Administration agent was in for a surprise: Inside were four paws and a tail belonging to a feline stowaway.

"On the bright side, the cat's out of the bag," a TSA spokesperson tweeted Tuesday.

The traveler said it belonged to someone they live with, but didn't elaborate on how it ended up in the bag.

The cat wasn't hurt and is now back home.
