This is a wonderful story. Unfortunately it isn't true. Stories like "Parachuting Cats into Borneo" are a kind of environmental urban legend. Some of these stories are so good that they spread like wildfire in the environmental education community . . .
“Cat drop” did occur to replenish a cat population in Borneo. The only written evidence for this states that the drop occurred in one remote village of northern Borneo, Bario, in the Malaysian state of Sarawak. A number in excess of 20 cats were dropped in a special container designed to withstand the parachute drop by a large transport plane operated by the Royal Air Force.
