8 lives left. A cat made a death defying leap from the window of a burning apartment building in Florida. The place was nearly fully engulfed and they say the cat waited until it had pretty much no other choice. In the video you'll see the cat at first seeming to want to climb straight down the outer wall but then begin its free fall 3 stories to the ground. The cat survived with barely a scratch.

Now if you're thinking that's not a big deal because you've heard of cats falling from greater heights, animal experts say falls from greater heights are actually much more survivable for cats because it allows their bodies time to position, adjust, and relax. A fall from a height like 3 stories is about the most dangerous and deadly for a cat, yet this one just walked away.
