A woman on a Delta Airlines flight reportedly started to breastfeed her cat during a flight and refused to stop when confronted by the crew.

Newsweek says the incident happened on a flight from Syracuse, New York, headed to Atlanta, Georgia.

An image circulating online describes the supposed event in what appears to be a screen capture of a message sent using the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), which pilots use to transmit short text-based messages to the ground, Newsweek explained.

According to Newsweek, the message reports "that a passenger is seat 13A ‘is breastfeeding a cat and will not put cat back in carrier’ in response to a request from a flight attendant.

Flight attendant Ainsley Elizabeth, who was on board during the incident, took to TikTok on Nov. 13 to explain more of what went down, Newsweek stated.

“This woman had one of those, like, hairless cats swaddled up in a blanket so it looked like a baby,” she said in her video, according to Newsweek's report. “Her shirt was up and she was trying to get the cat to latch and she wouldn’t put the cat back in the carrier. And the cat was screaming for its life.”

Elizabeth revealed in another video that security got involved. However, she was unsure of what happened to the woman and her cat once the plane touched down in Atlanta.
