A lot of flights have a lunch or snack service, but many still feel the need to nosh before the plane touches down. This pretty Instagramming dog is prepped for a long time in the air with a bag of its favorite snacks ready and waiting.
That image is staged, obviously, but there are a bunch of other images in the set that show this dog is more than just a model for the camera. It’s seen snoozing next to its favorite stuffed animal and giving the camera a wonderful doggy smile. The treats probably helped.
If you have a big, long ride to take, it can be easy to get antsy. Even passengers who don't go running up and down the aisles will want to get up and stretch their legs – unless they're a cat, of course.
Cats are well known for their ability to sit in a single place and not move for hours, which means that this cat is in the perfect spot. Having so many people, sounds, smells, and movement around it might not be the best option, but the harness it's wearing also probably helps to keep it in place.
The Birds Can't Escape Now
While many grown cats are content to stay in their sunbeams or near the food dish, kittens still have that spark of life that has them exploring, saying hi to new people, and generally not acting very much like the stereotypical cat.
This little one is all about taking in the sights of the tarmac before the plane lifts off – there will be plenty of sights then, too, but he might have to be in a carrier. If you're a little kitten, having the world around you suddenly fire into the sky with roaring engines might send you running.
A New Kind of Traveler
Researching for this article we've seen koalas on planes, cats on trains, and parrots on subways, but we've never seen a ferret so comfortable on a kayak. Maybe it makes a certain amount of sense – ferrets would be familiar with lakes or ponds in the wild.
And while pet ferrets don't spend as much time outside, there's no reason to think that a ferret wouldn't be fine with hanging out on the boat with its owner while they're paddling around on the water. It looks pretty comfortable there, even if it does seem hesitant to get near the edge of the boat.
Welcome on Board
Seeing a smiling flight attendant is a good way to start your plane ride, but this picture makes us think that there are better options. Sure, the dog we see here wouldn't be able to tell us the emergency procedures all that well, but we feel like most people would be okay with the change.
That huge smile on its face is wide enough to rival even the most cheerful attendants. Of course, this dog was really just a passenger, but that doesn't mean it can't help make everybody else on the plane that much happier.
