This kitty, named Sugar, fell 19 floors out of a high-rise window in Boston and landed on her feet with only minor injuries - a scratch and bruised lungs. From Time:
The height of Sugar’s dive might have worked in her favor. According to a 1987 study on the so-called High-Rise Syndrome, published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, cats who fell from higher floors fared much better because they can spread themselves out like a parachute and slow the impact.
