Interesting facts regarding cats falling multiple stories:
There was a study done regarding reports of cats falling from buildings and approximately 10% of the cats that fell from 2-6 stories died, only 5% of the cats that fell from 7 or more stories died. It is believed that the reason for this is that cats reach a terminal velocity (maximum speed) of 60 MPH after falling approximately 5 stories. Once terminal velocity is achieved and the body stops accelerating, it is believed that the cat relaxes into a somewhat spread-eagled position. This position creates increased air drag and allows the impact to be more evenly distributed.
