The Chicago Fire Department captured this video of a black cat jumping from a fifth-story window to escape a fire two days ago. The cat narrowly missed a wall on the way down, but landed on his feet, as all good kitties do, and scampered away, apparently uninjured. We can only hope that he is truly uninjured and finds someone to care for him.
Is it any wonder so many of us love these fascinating creatures? They are full of surprises and amazing abilities. I just hope this little guy is really okay.
