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.
