The hairless kitten, named Snickers, froze after flying from Utah to Connecticut last month when a door latch malfunctioned in 10-degree weather. It took nearly an hour to unload the kitten.
Heather Lombardi says Delta initially told her she would get $2,900 for the cat and $290 for airfare, plus reimbursement for vet bills and a freezer where Snickers is being kept until the ground thaws for burial.
But on Tuesday, the airline changed its offer to airfare plus 50 cents per pound, although there is a $50 minimum payout.
Delta spokesman Anthony L. Black tells AP the offer is a standard cargo reimbursement and says talks are ongoing.
