When a fire broke out in a building in the Englewood section of Chicago earlier this week, one feline-in-residence had to save itself. As smoke streamed from the window of a 5th floor apartment, the cat appeared – and made a death-defying leap. The lucky cat bounced when it hit the ground – but then got up and ran away. “Cats are incredibly durable,” veterinarian Dr. Laurie Hess told Inside Edition Digital. “You should have that cat checked out by a veterinarian immediately,” she recommended.

  1. I've come to the conclusion that jumping from any height is better than burning to death. 9/11 was when I first began observing this type of behavior.

  2. I had a cat who repeatedly jumped out my 3rd floor window. 1st time I panicked, took 5 steps at time running down the 3 flights. He was just sitting there like, "where you been?". Lil scrape on his chin, figured lesson learned. Nope, it was like this cat played truth or dare by himself + kept choosing the same dare 😂 He was a good kitty, RIP Tiger (reg old kitty age got him, not his Evil Kneival stunts)

  3. no it isnt a lucky inccident cats can naturally survive a high fall by rolling their body in mid air repeatedly

  4. I have no depth perception but I'd turn into the flash the second I saw my cat started falling. Although I think about it and it sounds a bit stupid

  5. Yeh that was totally deliberate. Instinctively knew to spread his paws & land squarely. He just bounced once off the grass. I think he’s fine.

  6. Well first off, cats always land into hey feet 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️
