Petition/against Airline Ruling Of No Pets 'in Cabin' - While doing some research on the change in airline policy between U.S./Mexico regarding 'pets in cabin,' I came across a website asking for signatures to combat this ruling. The site name is Care2petition:In Cabin Airline Pet Travel to Mexico. I have sent the petition to all my family/friends and hope you will do likewise. This personally affects me because of my 13 yr old Persian Cat--Senor Peabody who would never travel in cargo. Thank you for signing; who knows the outcome but can't fault us for trying. - Pamela Bejarano, m77pg77pugs [- at -] netscape.net, www.thepetitionsite.com/897/179/2...to-mexico/, Todos Santos
