Cat falls 19 stories, minor injuries

Cat falls 19 stories and only has minor bruising:

Cat Survives 19-Story Fall From Boston Apartment Building « CBS Boston

Most interesting quote "Surprisingly, rescuers say studies show cats have a better chance of surviving falls when they’re from higher than nine stories."

Have you ever seen a headstone with these words
"If only I had spent more time at work" ... from "Busy Man" sung by Billy Ray Cyrus

Surprisingly, rescuers say studies show cats have a better chance of surviving falls when they’re from higher than nine stories. “The cats were able to relax, orient themselves in a flying squirrel position with the legs spread out. It slowed their descent down.”
I'll have to remember to try that one next time I take a fall...relax..flying squirrel...relax..flying squirrel...
