..........
What are they using the cats for, parachutes? Landing pads? To check and see if the ground is hard? Wind shear?
What?!

You beat me to it! Topix has been crossing up the ledes with the headlines lately. Here is a more suitable lede:

"A house cat in Alaska may have used one of her nine lives after falling 11 stories from an apartment building."

This is bittersweet. She suffered broken bones and has a cast, but she survived. Talk about learning about gravity the hard way. She was chasing a mosquito around the room and the mosquito went out the window. She leaped out to get it.

They probably crossed up a story about e-cigarettes with the cat story.

No survival story concerning a cat surprises me. They are also known to survive venomous snakebites from species known to be potentially fatal to humans. They are also excellent swimmers although they usually hate water.

You can evidently get high on cat fur, but when you come down from it, it's like 11 stories.

I have yet to see a cat of mine enjoy water. That video was the exception to the rule.
