Chainsaw tree cutting chart why a cat can shimmy up a tree in mere seconds to get out of the way of whatever might be chasing him, such as a dog. If you were to watch in slow-motion, you’d see the claws anchoring the cat to the tree similar to mountain-climbing crampons (which probably take their inspiration from feline claws!), so the ascent is swift and safe.
Sep 05, My 5 month old kitten fell out of a tree today. She seemed fine at first, but then started acting a bit strange. Although she didn't do it consistently, she dragged her cat fall from tree legs, tilted her head to one side, walked in circles, and began falling asleep sitting up, all while purring. I already took her to the vet, and they say she's fine. Mar 25, Cats, monkeys, reptiles and other creatures will jump for prey and miss, a tree limb will break, or the wind will knock them over, so evolution has rendered them supremely capable of surviving.
While cats can generally hold onto tree branches and wooden surfaces with their sharp claws, other surfaces such as concrete or plastic are more challenging. Declawed cats are at even greater risk Estimated Reading Time: 4 mins. Sep 25, A cat usually survives a fall of up to three stories without serious injury.
In a fall from a greater height, the tendency to land on all four feet usually holds true and leg fractures are common. As the cat hits the ground, the head is thrust downward and the chin hits first. This usually breaks a cat's teeth and splits the upper palate, which causes the nose to bleed.

Falls from trees may be the most dangerous for cats.
If it weren't for this fab vet of mine feeling like she had to at least try to save him, I would actually have had her put him down.
Your cat may climb to an awkward height. The Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery has stated that falls from 7-story buildings are most likely to cause injury to cats. This height is too tall to jump down from safely but not high enough to achieve terminal velocity.
