Turtle Help: flying with a fiddle (16) RE: Help: flying with a fiddle 18 Oct 00

Hooray for the good news! And smart you to get written confirmation . . .

Thanks for your concern for my pet, Marion (a cat, actually). He was a pretty mellow animal, and had had a tranquilizer, and didn't show any after-effects, much to my astonishment. Probably dismissed it all as a bad dream.

No, there was no acknowledgement on the part of the airline that anything odd had happened. I just found him in the baggage area in an upside-down kennel, and of course the people in the baggage office knew nothing about why he was upside down. It happened a long time ago on Republic Airlines (of Tom Paxton's "Thank You, Republic Airlines, For Breaking the Neck on My Guitar" fame), and I've never had another similar experience, but I have to admit it's made me very wary about sending animals or other fragile precious things in baggage.

Anyway, with this hurdle hurdled, have a wonderful trip and enjoy playing your fiddle!
