The Caturday Report! Gizmo The Cat Falls 9 Floors, Only Breaks Tooth And Window

"A 4 1/2-year-old kitty named Gizmo fell nine-story from a Manhattan penthouse and survived — with only broken tooth and scratches.

“I can’t believe he’s alive!” Gizmo’s owner, Samuel Jacobs, told the Daily News Thursday.
Jacobs — a deejay who goes by the stage name Sam Kosnani — said Gizmo’s miraculous plunged occurred sometime Tuesday when the Egyptian Mau got out of his 12th-floor penthouse on E. 32nd St. near Lexington Ave.

 (He bounced onto this window)

The cat, whose silver fur is dotted with black leopard spots, apparently scaled the 4 1/2-foot railing on Jacob’s terrace and slipped. The 11-pound Gizmo landed on the roof of the third floor, just missing a skylight."

I think it was actually proven that cats land on their feet more easily when falling from a greater height rather than just a small one, as they've got time to readjust their position :3

He must have been at terminal velocity (the fastest falling can be), so the results would have been the same if he fell out of an airplane! :)
