Cats have 90% survival rate falling from buildings as high as 30 stories
Many cats generally fall from high story buildings due to the syndrome called “high-rise syndrome”. Cats think that the windows are the path to freedom and fall from windows. Studies done on cats have shown that 90% cats survive with just injuries, when they fall from multi story buildings. Researchers claim that cats reach terminal velocity at about 5 or 6 stories after which they tend to relax and the force is evenly distributed on its body leading to fewer injuries.
There are chances that some cats may have severe injuries like Chest trauma and fractures. So if you are living in high-rise buildings, protect your cats by closing the windows or by having a thick screen.Tags: Cats, Cats High Rise Syndrome, High Story Buildings and Cats
