The Cat that has 26 lives

June 11th, 2009 · No Comments · Cat Door

NEW YORK (WABC) — It’s been said that cats have nine lives. Lucky may have used more than one earlier this month.

The cat fell 26 stories out of his owner’s apartment window.

“I guess he thought he was safer than he actually was,” Keri Hostetler said.

The window in Keri’s home office was only open 6 inches, but that was wide enough for Lucky, a curious cat, to squeeze through.

Lucky’s terrifying fall and extraordinarily graceful landing were captured on film.

First of Lucky perched dangerously on the ledge, and then a stomach-turning shot of Lucky midair. Finally, they captured Lucky, after landing, on his feet on a neighbor’s balcony 26 stories below.

Amazingly, Lucky escaped with minor injuries.

Three-year old Lucky truly lived up to his name. Now, after a brief hospital stay, he is happy to be home. His owner says she hopes other high-rise cat owners take note….

“No windows ever open, ever again,” Hostetler said.

The Cat Veranda™ Cat Door, the first window-mounted cat flap door that includes an open-air patio with covered roof and indoor lounging platform. Now your cat can enjoy the outdoors as they please, or you can choose to close the flap for restricted use.
