A Calgary airline has added a furry new member to its team.
In response to the Northern Alberta wildfires that rent through Fort McMurray and displaced at least 80,000, Canadian North Air opened up its coach segments to accommodate passengers fleeing the region with their pets.
“Many of the evacuees from the Northern Alberta wildfires have been traveling with their beloved pets. We love animals, too, so we’ve been glad to help bring them to security, ” Canadian North said on Facebook.

The airline took its compassionate response a step further when staff members volunteered to cat-sit Meow Meow, the pet of a Krystal Scott, pregnant passenger who was ready to go into labor.
According to Canadian North’s frequent Facebook and Twitter updates, the cat soon became a valued is part of the team. Staff members even gave Meow Meow a desk so that she would have a suitable place to conduct her important kitty business.
And, like any business professional, Meow Meow attained many journeys to the coffee station during her stay with the airline.

In fact, Meow Meow demonstrated herself to be such a diligent worker that airline crew watched it fit to give her an official name tag. An adorable, feline-friendly name tag.
“They figured that if she’s going to be part of our team she might as well have proper identification, ” theEdmonton Flight Ops team wrote on Facebook.
Following her #workflow success with Canadian North, Meow Meow took some much needed PTO and returned to her owner’s care.
In an update posted to the airline’s Facebook, Scott thanked them for looking after Meow Meow and said the family was settled in Calgary and waiting for the baby to arrive.
Canadian North’s Facebook page had now been been flooded with supportive remarks from people around the world.
