Cat lovers rejoice! The search is over!

After two months of searching, Jack the Cat has been found by American Airlines. The Fort Worth-based carrier lost the cat on August 25 after its owner Karen Pascoe had checked the cat in to American before she boarded a flight to California.

On its Facebook page late Tuesday evening, American posted this message:

"American Airlines is happy to announce that Jack the Cat has been found safe and well at JFK airport. American's team of airport employees have been focused on the search effort since Jack escaped on August 25, 2011. Jack was found in the customs room and was immediately taken by AA team members to the airport vet service, VetPort, where a microchip scan confirmed that the cat is indeed Jack. VetPort has advised that Jack is healthy, safe and well.
