While most people believe that cats always land on their feet, that’s not entirely true. Still, this kitty named Hank got lucky and cheated death with his amazing performance.
The heartstopping moment of the cat leaping from a balcony was captured on a TikTok video, and it quickly went viral.
In the viral video, you can see Hank leaping from an indoor balcony. Although the moment was intense, Hank safely landed on a soft sofa.
After his fall, the ginger cat appears to be as surprised as anyone. The shocking video gained a lot of attention and comments from viewers.
One of the users named Atlas wrote:
“Not him looking around like those weren’t the consequences of his own actions.”
“Cat even said ‘What just happened’ 😂”
“Not him checking someone caught it on camera.”
Among these and similar comments, most viewers jokingly referred to this video as just another example of “orange cat activities.”
Even the caption of the video humorously says “8 more lives left.”
Fortunately, Hank landed on a soft sofa without sustaining any injury. However, it’s crucial to understand that falling and jumping from high surfaces can be extremely dangerous for cats.
Despite their ability to reorient themselves in midair, thanks to the righting reflex, they can still end up with serious injuries, such as broken or sprained limbs, broken teeth, or even internal damage.
Let this heart-pounding video serve as a reminder to all cat owners to keep a close eye on their feline friends and secure their environment to prevent potential injuries and related issues.
