Cat’s amazing! Moggy survives plunge from burning building


Pussy cat Charlie Jasper used up most of his nine lives when he leapt from the third floor of a burning building – seconds before it caved in.

The terrified moggy was caught on camera jumping after the apartment complex in Celebration, Florida, burst into flames Tuesday afternoon following a lightning strike.

Cellphone video sees the one-year-old cat struggling to balance on a window sill, then trying to run down the wall before deciding the only way out was with a jump.

Miraculously, he survived.

“It jumped out of the third floor window, landed on the cement and ran away. It didn’t bounce or anything,” neighbor Jim Cooke, who filmed the incident, told WFTV.

The petrified pussy cat was found minutes later and given an oxygen mask by firefighters, who said he was purring when picked up.

“The cat just had burned paws, some scratches so far that I know he’s OK,” owner Josue Alicea told Click Orlando.

Fire officials said the blaze was caused by a lightning bolt that struck the attic of the 24-unit Evander Square Apartments complex on Latte Drive at around 3pm Tuesday.
