Jack the Cat went missing at the American Airlines baggage center at JFK.
A pet detective and her dog are expected to begin their search Friday for a cat that escaped its carrier at John F. Kennedy Airport.
Nicole Mabrey, owner of Lost Pet Investigation, told NBC New York she will begin her search Friday morning at the American Airlines terminal with her "scent-specific" German short-haired pincher.
Jack the cat got lost in the American Airlines baggage center over the weekend, shortly before Irene hit New York and forced airports to shut down for most of the weekend.
The cat's owner, Karen Pascoe, was flying with her two cats, Jack and Barry, to San Francisco last Thursday to start a new job in California.
The cats were flying in separate carriers as cargo, but Jack got out of the kennel and went missing, Pascoe said.
Pascoe told MSNBC she had to continue on to San Francisco because the rest of her luggage and her other cat Barry were already en route to the West Coast.
But her concern grew when she could not reach American Airlines over the weekend.
“I respect the fact that a hurricane was coming and things were a bit challenging,” Pascoe said, “but I didn’t hear from American until about 60 hours later.”
She decided to return to New York to continue looking for Jack, and hired Mabrey to help.
Pascoe is bringing some of Jack's other personal items for Mabrey's detective dog to sniff. The dog will then try to track Jack based on the scent.
"He will only track what I ask him to track," said Mabrey.
Mabrey estimates a recovery rate of 72 percent, and said if Jack is not at the terminal, the scent trail will end quickly.
She said she will also leave out fried chicken and sardines in the hopes of luring him out.
"I hope he is there and I hope we can pinpoint his area," Mabrey said.
