Cat unhurt after jumping from fifth-floor window during fire

A cat who jumped from a fifth-floor window during an apartment fire is somehow 'feline' fine.

A cat which jumped from a fifth-floor window during an apartment fire is somehow “feline” fine.

The furry friend used up one of its nine lives in Chicago. That city’s firefighters shared a video on social media of the blaze they recently responded to in the Englewood neighbourhood.

In the clip, a black cat appears in one of the building’s open windows and can be seen briefly sticking its front paws out before ultimately going for it and making the death-defying jump.

The cat is shown landing on a patch of grass on all four paws and then bounding once before running away from a few people.

Fire department spokesperson Larry Lanford told the Guardian the cat was not injured.

“Nine lives for a cat that jumped from a fire at 65th an Lowe,” the fire department wrote on Twitter alongside the video.

“Perfect landing :),” one user tweeted as another said, “Wow!!! One down 8 to go,” referring to the popular myth about cats having nine lives.

There were no injuries reported following the apartment complex fire.
