Kitteh Survives 19-Story Fall

A kitteh named Sugar survived a 19-story fall from her owner's Boston apartment.

Sugar landed on a small patch of mulch, which helped lessen the impact of the fall. Animal Rescue League of Boston assistant manager Mike Brammer said Sugar's "flying-squirrel"-like ability to glide also helped her survive the harrowing ordeal.

Sugar's hoomin, Brittney Kirk, who was tracked down via a microchip implanted in her cat, says she left the window open so that Sugar wouldn't get too hot. "[I]f there were a cat to fall 19 stories and to be fine, I think it would definitely be Sugar, because she's a pretty special cat," she said.

Special, indeed! Thank goodness kittehs have nine lives!
