A moment of pure terror at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami: a cat dangles from the stands of the stadium . It happened during a football game between the Miami Hurricanes and Appalachian State Mountaineers college teams. The attention of the fans suddenly turned to the cat. Moments of fear while the cat was suspended in nothingness and no one could intervene. When he fell into the void some fans opened an American flag to make him land and everything ended for the best.

But do cats always fall on their feet?

“But cats always fall on their feet anyway, maybe he would have made it”. Well, that’s not a sure answer, in other words: who can tell? As the veterinarian Sonia Campa explains, the cat ‘s safety following such a flight depends specifically on the speed of impact, which is proportional to the height from which it could fall and until this factor can be absorbed by the muscle structure. -skeletal of the feline, which in turn must also be assessed on the basis of health conditions and its agility.

This ability of cats, however, is called the righting  or vertebral reflex and is a gift that  evolution has forged for them.

From a scientific point of view for cats it did not go better in the following centuries, given that even in other eras it was an animal that seemed to contradict Newton’s law of conservation of angular momentum, according to which a falling body cannot stop its rotation. unless an outside force intervenes.
