Cat survives 80-foot fall
After eight days in tree, lucky kitty lands on her feet.
A 2-year-old kitty in Marion, Mass., has had a harrowing start to the new year. Firefighters tried three times to rescue her from the tree that she’d been stuck in for eight days before she fell 80 feet from her perch on Sunday — and then took off into the brush.
Pam Robinson, founder of a local pet shelter called It's All About the Animals, finally caught her on Tuesday, named her Fortunate, and brought her to the Marion Animal Hospital to be checked out.
"I don't see anything wrong with this cat; it's unbelievable," said veterinarian Dr. Rachel Francis, who examined her. "She's certainly a survivor."

Robinson and Francis said they believe the skittish but affectionate cat, who had a few pulled muscles and a possible parasitic infection, was once someone’s pet.
After she recovers, Fortunate will be put up for adoption.
