Video! Miracle: Sugar The Cat Survives Epic Fall From 19th-Story Window
"A Boston woman said it was a miracle when her cat survived a 19-story fall without any serious injuries.
Brittany Kirk said her cat, Sugar, plummeted from the window of her 19th floor apartment on Storrow Drive and veterinarians with the local Animal Rescue League said the feline incurred only minor bruising to her lungs."
Usually when a kitty falls out of a 19th-story window you expect a catastrophe, but Sugar escaped her ordeal with only minor bruising to her lungs.
Any parent of small children or a pet owner, who lives in a tall building, should keep their windows closed at all times. Felines love windows, an open window is like catnip to them.
Kirk has learned her lesson; she is having screens installed in all her windows to prevent any more mishaps.
This isn`t exactly a breaking news story, but we need to read a heartwarming story every once in a while.
