Malik Jackson paid for the Wings of Rescue flight. He's a defensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars and has a foundation called Malik's Gifts. The cats were flown to Delaware.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. Think of this as the Berlin Airlift - except for cats. About 100 cats were flown out of Florida yesterday. Malik Jackson paid for this flight. He's a defensive tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars and has a foundation. Moving cats and kittens out of Florida made room for cats displaced by Hurricane Michael. And if you think 100 cats remained in their seats just because the seatbelt light was on, you were out of your mind. It's MORNING EDITION.
