Do cats always land on their feet?
Not always. No.
A cat is a perfect small predator, just as comfortable stalking a possum from tree to tree as chasing a wiggly piece of ribbon across the carpet.
We’ve evolved with some nifty high-rise survival skills, including the ability to grab onto a branch with retractable crampons if we lose our footing. And if that doesn’t work, we have an awe-inspiring ability to right ourselves in midair so we can stick a perfect four-point landing.
Someone’s written a book about it!
