Sammy, a 2-year old cat in New York, was sitting on the window sill leaning against a screen covering a window when the screen gave way. Sammy fell four stories but miraculously survived.
Suffering a broken right hind leg and broken toes on his right front paw, Sammy also split his hard palate. Despite his injuries, Sammy will likely recover. If you live in a high rise with a cat, make sure your windows are secured so your cat can’t fall out. Even though cats can land on their feet, you don’t want to tempt fate with your cat’s life.
