Thank goodness this story has a purrfect ending: A Manhattan cat owner discovered his cat was missing from his 15th floor apartment—and then found him on the third floor overhang... alive!

CBS New York reports:

“I started freaking out,” [Samuel] Jacobs told 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck. “I literally saw him and I was like, ‘Oh no, no no. He’s dead.'”

With help from a building porter, Jacobs climbed out onto the overhang and was happily shocked to find Gizmo purring.

“He looked so relieved to see me,” Jacobs said. “He was scared and just crying and screaming.”

Luckily, Gizmo only suffered minor injuries. Many cats are able to survive falls from great heights (like 26 stories) because of their reflexes and ability to right themselves. But, please, if you have cats, don't leave your windows open—you don't want High-Rise Syndrome.
