Here is a strange probelm.. My husband and I just moved into a new house Monday. Our 2 cats just became brave enough to venture out of the bedroom and explroe their new surroundings. (They have been hiding under our blanket for two days!) Anyways, upstairs, we have a loft that overlooks our living room. The loft has two ledges that last night- our cats discovered! The ledges that look down are probably 20-25 feet high up from the living room floor. THEY ARE SCARING ME TO DEATH! They are teetering along the edge, sometime losing their footing... and one of my cats seriously considered jumping down to the floor below. (She was in her "crouch" position and had her front paws flat on the wall that goes straight down) I screamed out "NOOOO!" and she stopped thankfully... she almost gave her mommy a heart attack! So my question is, if they were to jump the 20-25 feet down to the hard wood floor below, would they land on their feet? Or would they break their neck? I am so scared they are going to hurt themselves while we are gone at work and I will come home to one of them laying there in pain! So can anyone help? Just how far of a fall (or jump) can a cat handle safely?
