CAT WHO SAILED TO FRANCE COMES HOME
MILWAUKEE -- Emily the cat is back after flying home in the th lap of luxury.

The curious cat who wound up traveling to France in a cargo cntainer touched down at the Milwaukee airport on Thursday, greeted by her family anbd a horde of reporters.

A Continetnal agent handed her over to 9-year old Nick Herndon, son of the cat's ornwer., Donny and Lesley McElhiney. Emily meowed and pawed at reporters mincrophone as the family answered questions.

"She'll be held onto a lot all the way home> And then when he get home, too, she'll be cuddled a lot", Donny MeElhiney said.

Her sumptuous return in business class on a Continental Airlines flight was a sharp departue from her trip to France, where she was found thin and thirsty but still alive.

"She seems a little calmer than she was before, just a little quieter, a little, maybe wiser", said Lesly McElhiney, 32.

Emily vanished from her Appleton home in late September. She appratently wandered into a nearby paper company's distribution center and crawled into a container of paper bales.

The container went by truck to Chicago and by ship to Belgium before the cat found Oct. 24 at Ralfatac, a laminating company in Nancy, France. Worjers there used her tags to phone her veterinarian, who called the McElhineys.
