An Ohio woman says the pet cat that sneaked into her luggage for a flight to Florida has returned home safely and seems relatively unaffected by his surprise vacation in Orlando.

Ethel Maze says Bob-Bob the stowaway spent 10 hours in a suitcase before she opened it.
She says he was lethargic and wet from perspiration, and she initially thought he'd died.
Eventually he perked up, and he spent the week in a crate at Maze's hotel.
He rode in a carrier near Maze's seat for the return flight.
Somehow the cat had made it through screening at Port Columbus International Airport.
The man who handled the bags for Maze's group has told reporters he thought he saw the bag move but loaded it anyway.
