Cat Falls 19 Stories…and Lives!

According to animal rescue officials in Boston, Sugar, a white furry cat, plunged 19 floors from a window in a high-rise building…and lived!


A woman in the West End building said she saw a “white streak” go by her window early Wednesday afternoon and then saw Sugar after she hit the ground, said Mike Brammer, assistant manager of the animal rescue services department at the Animal Rescue League of Boston.

“You could see the impact crater where she actually did hit the ground and she actually lost some fur in the hole, too,” Brammer said.

 The cat’s small landing spot is surrounded by brick and concrete.

“Whether cats can sometimes aim, so if it did it itself or if it was a combination of luck or both … it managed to hit that small patch of mulch, so it was very soft ground,” he said.

    19 Stories? Holy CAT!! I don’t know, but sounds more to me like someone THREW it out the Window. I guess it could have fallen asleep on the Ledge and lost its balance, but still, that’s really something. I would definitely say it was Luck to walk away from that one.
