If cats really do have nine lives, then one Chicago feline is down to eight after making a death-defying jump from a burning building on Thursday.
The miraculous leap occurred downtown at the site of a multistory building fire, according to the Chicago Police Department. Video taken by a firefighter shows the frightened black cat peering through a broken-out window as smoke billows around it. After taking a few minutes to contemplate the act, the cat finally jumps and plummets several stories to the ground below. Surprisingly, it lands on its feet and scurries off, the video shows.
"Cat hit grass bounced and walked away!” reads a tweet from the Chicago Fire Department, which reported no injuries in the afternoon blaze.
