Patty Sahli, Rowdy’s owner, arrived in Boston late Friday night to be reunited with her 4-year-old Bengal mix cat. “She’s too curious,” Sahli said, describing Rowdy. “She’s an observant cat. She’s going to check everything.”Sahli and her husband are moving back the U.S. from Germany. She said she was picking up her husband at the airport on June 24, and Rowdy was making the trip with him.According to Sahli, the door to Rowdy’s carrier fell open when baggage handlers went to grab her off the plane. “Her door fell open and she just saw a target of opportunity to get out and she wanted out,” Sahli said.She said she was not surprised to hear Rowby was out chasing mice around Logan Airport. “I have a field guide to see all the things she catches in Germany so I can identify them.””We have three cats, and she’s definitely, like, the most hunter, like, you know?,” Sahli said. “I just thought that the odds were really tough to be able to find her in such a large place,” Sahli said speaking with reporters Saturday. “It’s not where people live. I just had to rely on people working there.”Mehigan said the search for Rowdy at the airport became a community effort.”Everyone from construction workers to airline staff constantly on the lookout hoping for a positive outcome,” Mehigan said. “Massport staff set up wildlife cameras around Terminal E in areas she had been seen as well as safe release animal traps.”Sahli said she found out Wednesday morning that Rowdy walked into a cage and workers were able to secure her in it.”When they got her at the airport, they came and picked her up and scanned her and the vet checked her out and so the numbers matched,” Sahli said. “I’m relieved, Sahil said. “We live in a really quiet neighborhood. We were in Germany and it’s been a lot of excitement for her, for sure.”Sahil said she and Rowdy will be heading back to Florida on Sunday.”We’ll go down to Florida and she’ll get to see her new home,” Sahil said. “She was born in Germany. I joke that she’s got to learn English now.”Rowdy’s grateful owner is asking everyone who has asked what they can do to help to please support the Boston ARL and Charles River Alley Cats with donations.
