Cat Trivia: Cat Terminal Velocity is 53 mph — 4 Comments

  1. Yes cats are far better than humans.
    What puzzles me is why the restaurant owners don’t put a safety barrier round so people can’t jump off?
    I can only think the roaring trade in champagne for the would be suicides pays too well for them to stop people doing it!
    Our late mother would say ‘Money is the root of all evil’ and our late father would reply ‘Give me more of the root’
    lol

    • What puzzles me is why the restaurant owners don’t put a safety barrier round so people can’t jump off?

      Good point. I think they probably like the publicity. Also there may be a nice view. That is the way the world works.

  2. Cats are miraculous creatures, to see that one in the video fall so far and then run off…phew…..they must be born with a sort of built in safety net because of their love of heights!
    How strange it must be at the Coq D’Argent, just imagine sitting enjoying a meal and some one walks over the edge and falls to the ground, do the diners just carry on eating? Have you been there Michael?

    • Regarding the restaurant, when it happens the management politely ask people to leave. At least that is the decent thing to do but I could imagine a scenario where everyone just carries on as nothing happened. Life is a bit like that. I have not been there but it is quite well known which is why people use it. They drink champagne before doing it sometimes. One guy jumped of with a glass of champagne in his hand! The restaurant is near the city where the banks are. There is a lot of pressure and misbehavior in the banking world.

      The cat in the video is amazing but typical really. Cats are great survivors. Of course cats are great climbers and several wild cat species live in trees. It appears that the domestic cat has an inbuilt survival strategy when falling from high places, inherited from his wild cat ancestor. They are better than humans aren’t they? 🙂
