Cat causes half-day flight delay

(CNN) - A plane full of passengers had to be delayed almost half a day, all because of a cat.

That's right, Air Canada passengers weren't too happy with Ripples the cat. The cat escaped from his crate before take off and delayed the flight for hours.

Ripples' owner Debbie Harris says, "Some people tried to catch him up front in first class, and he took off into the cockpit and nestled down."

Maintenance crews had to remove electrical panels in the cockpit to finally get him out.
