Is it true that cats will always land on their feet? Also, how high can a cat jump?
My cat has jumped from the ground to the top of the fridge before. Can they jump higher than that?
Thanks for the answers!|||Hi Ken...the height a cat can jump truly depends on the individual cat. Some can jump much higher than others.
As for cats always landing on their feet, not always: http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?鈥?/a>
If cats fall a short distance, they can almost always right themselves and land on their feet. If they fall more than one or two floors, however, they may sustain severe or even fatal injuries. The number of cats who become injured from falling is increasing, partially because of the large number of multi-story apartment buildings. Cats who are injured during falls are often said to have 'high rise syndrome.'
