No one knows how "Jack Daniels," the partially blind kitten stolen last year from the San Francisco SPCA, made it all the way to New York. But we do know how he's coming back: On a big ol' jet airliner.

The cat, now 13-months-old, is arriving back in San Francisco today courtesy of Jet Blue, along with human chaperon LeeAnn Falciani. After the kitty is cleared by SPCA vets, he'll be put up for adoption -- again -- sparking an all-but-certain mad rush to adopt The Cat Who Came Back. And Falciani says he's a keeper. 

While JD was found roaming around Manhattan, he doesn't look like a stray. He's 11 pounds now, and appears to have been fairly well taken care of. "He looks great," says Falciani. "He looks like a sturdy cat. He doesn't look like he walked across the country, y'know?"

In addition to coming with a hefty set of frequent flier miles, Jack Daniels, unlike his namesake, is "sweet, very friendly."

In any event, it seems San Franciscans will soon have their shot at Jack Daniels.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
