JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Dozens of cats saved from a hoarding situation in Northeast Arkansas are now enjoying the rest of their nine lives in the Pacific Northwest.

On Tuesday, a Wings of Rescue flight transported more than 25 cats from the Northeast Arkansas Humane Society in Jonesboro to Seattle, WA.

The group posted a video of the plane's successful landing on its Facebook page:

The high-flying felines caught their flight in Memphis along with 120 other shelter dogs and cats from the Mid-South.

Once they touched down, volunteers rushed to deboard the furry passengers and taxi them to no-kill shelters.
