A cat got stuck in a palm tree in Auckland, New Zealand so firefighters propped up a ladder and attempted to rescue the crying cat that had been stuck in the tree. However, as soon as firefighters got near the cat, the cat launched itself in the air to get away from them.

Amazingly, the cat landed on the ground (on its feet, nonetheless) and ran for cover underneath the firetrucks. Rescuers managed to corner the cat and bring it to a shelter where it will eventually find a good home after veterinarians make sure the cat is healthy and uninjured from its leap.

As this cat demonstrates, cats really do land on their feet. To read more about the cat that jumped out of a tree, click here.
