    (circa March 2007- )
    Born in Florida
    Tabby cat
    Resided in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida
    Traveled undetected while hidden in her owner's suitcase (January 18, 2008)
    Was discovered alive in Fort Worth, Texas after the suitcase was opened by a stranger (January 18, 2008)
    She crawled into owner Seth Levy's suitcase undetected and hid inside it as Levy closed the suitcase while preparing for an airline flight to Dallas, Texas.
    She had to endure her four hour journey cramped inside the suitcase in a subzero temperature cargo hold while recovering from recent spaying surgery.
    Questions regarding adequate airport security measures arose because Gracie Mae went undetected by baggage inspectors.
    Levy's frantic wife Kelly and another relative tore out bathroom tiles and cabinets looking for possible feline hiding places, and they also made a long neighborhood search while posting 'lost cat' signs.
    She arrived still undetected in Fort Worth after traveler Robert Carter mistakenly claimed Levy's lookalike suitcase as his own at a Dallas airport.
    Her leap out of the suitcase when it was opened, and her aggressive behavior before hiding under a bed frightened Carter.
    Along with confinement during a free 1,129 mile flight, she survived baggage handling which included X- rays, loading and unloading.
    Before discovering her identity, Robert Carter considered keeping the cat and naming it 'Suitcase'.
    She wore an I.D. collar which led to her reunion with her owners (January 20, 2008).
    Along with being honest and respectful regarding returning the cat to her owners, Mr. Carter purchased a pet carrier for Gracie Mae's return flight to Florida.
    Her incident received much media attention and inspired 'nine lives' and 'curiosity killed the cat' humor.
