A few cats have used one of their nine lives in the past few weeks.

After one Florida apartment complex caught fire, one cat had no choice but to jump.

The cat leaped out of a third story window, landed on its feet and kept running.

The animal survived the jump with a few scratches, some burns, and an injured jaw.

Although cats are known to jump from buildings much higher than an apartment complex, experts say cats that fall from lower floors tend to have worse injuries than those that fall from higher floors.

Across the country, two newborn kittens survived after being shipped over one hundred miles.

According to reports, the two kittens were accidentally packed up and shipped 130 miles to a warehouse in San Diego.

Employees say they became suspicious when someone heard meowing.

Workers found the two kittens inside of a 3×5 crate with their umbilical cords still attached.

The San Diego Human Society President figures the mother of the two kittens most likely gave birth and felt the box would be a safe place for them.
