Last year in physics we talked about how cats fall and land on their feet. They twist their bodies and then spread their legs/arms to stop the rotation. This means that falling from greater heights is safer for them because when they spread their legs/arms they increase their drag and slow their terminal velocity to a speed that they can survive.
@Reds750, they should put a cat sky diving
@Reds750, they also have special hairs in their ears that let them know if and when they're upside down. This way, the know which way to twist their bodies almost as soon as they fall
@Reds750, if you were to plug their ears with headphones or whatever, they wouldn't be able to do that.

@snaaake, hahahahaha best comment
@M4D 84993R, and title? 😅
@I shjt you not, No credit for you! Jk have a thumb pal
@snaaake, actually, due to the unique aerodynamics of a cat it can be dropped from the altitude of a cruising 747 and still survive the fall.
@snaaake, 7 once that dog catches him
@Chanadian, er.. bigger cat?
@snaaake, he dea- oh. Damn never mind.
@snaaake, not if I watch the gif 8 more times...
Long live the king!
U monster why didn't u help!!!!!?
Is that a dog that chases him after? Can't catch a break.
@cooking spider420, ah. Still it's as if its saying "My turf!!!!"
@Mr Literal, no, it's another cat
He de... no wait. He's fine
So we're all talking about the fall and not the fact that this cat was just chilling on the SIDE of a building?
Cats do not abide to the laws of nature and science
SPIDER CAT SPIDER CAT DOES WHATEVER A SPIDER CAT DOES
Put down the camera and heeeelp!!!!
Oh no don't bother helping it at all, just video tape the thing falling from a good 5+ stories.
Wtf gavity?! Why would you wanna try and kill a cat?!
@Scarlet Link, actually,I read somewhere that a cat's terminal velocity can't kill it.Of course,I read that on the Internet and am too lazy to fact check.
@Unownsoldier385, it's true because the way they fall slows them
He ran off, yes. But I'm sure he is pretty messed up. I'd like to throw the person filming and not helping off that roof.
@x2 6x 9 lol, it was most likely a stray, you ever tried to approach a stray?
@x2 6x 9 lol, you see how far down the wall he was? How exactly would you help - without knocking the cat off the wall and possibly causing more harm?
@big freedom, . It's not that far unless you're a midget. Who gave you that upvote. Oh you did. Nice.
@x2 6x 9 lol, are you fvcking stupid? You have no idea what would happen if you try to intervene. Stupid liberal moron that thinks every problem has a solution.
@big freedom, @big freedom,1. Intervene. Cat may fall. 2. Don't intervene. Cat will fall. Not a hard decision. Reach down and grab it. Solved. You may get scratched. (omg) another self up vote. Nice.
@x2 6x 9 lol, did you see the cat run away after it fell? What if you intervene and it falls in a way that it can't land safely. Never once did I mention getting a scratch... Try again dipsh!t and I'll continue to upvote myself.. Idgaf
@big freedom, a rhetorical question and a "what if" question. Face it, you have nothing. Now start backtracking. Try again dipsh!t
"Hey cat, did you forget about gravity?" "Wait wha-AAAAAAAAAAAHHHH'm fine I'm good. No, crazy neighbor cat, I don't need your help!"
Wow. He didn't even help. This is why aliens won't visit us.
What even are cats
Bad luck Bryan cat
I'm just sitting here thinking "wtf stuck pixel"
NOOOOOOOO.... I'm fine bîtches
I'm certain that cat has at least one broken leg. I don't think this is funny, that cat needs medical attention urgently.
Me:"NOOOO KIDDY! Wait. What!"
I had a little heart attack there 😭
When I saw this on Facebook I actually though I was going to see a horrible cat death, instead I just saw wonderful science
That train tho!
I was really terrified at first. Now that I know the cat is okay, I can't help but look at the face it makes just before it slips.
"I've made a grave mistake."
Im sorry but this is hilarious
Also, if you tie a sock around their torso they cant walk.......
If I fall from a 5 story building I die, but a stupid cat can just run it off.
I figuratively died when I watched it fall
I don't like cats, but the fact that they can survive from that hight is cool. I'll giv em that.
The face of regret lol
Again, imagine it backwards :o
I like how after all that its only really scared of the other cat.
He d... wait what?
I got tingles in my feet
The legends are true cats always do land on their feet
