Aldecosea needed to get home to deal with a medical issue, and after unsuccessfully trying to rent a car, she did the only thing she could think of -- flushing Pebbles to drown, according to the Herald.
"She was scared. I was scared. It was horrifying trying to put her in the toilet," Aldecosea told the Herald. "I was emotional. I was crying. I sat there for a good 10 minutes crying in the stall."
This incident happened on Nov. 21 and now Aldecosea is considering filing a lawsuit against the company. A spokesman for Spirit told the Herald that someone did give Aldecosea misinformation that the animal could go on the plane, but said no one told her to flush the hamster.
Spirit offered her a voucher for a free flight to certain cities. Aldecosea declined it, according to the Herald.
