Cat Falls From Tall Building, But With a Never-Give-Up Spirit and Some Help, He’s Fine!

Cats have a natural grace that makes it seem as though they were meant to climb around anywhere, but sadly, falls are not uncommon. There’s even a name for it – high-rise syndrome. One adorable little cat ended up a victim of this syndrome when he fell from a tall building and lay on the ground, seemingly lifeless. However, the woman who found him didn’t give up on him, and saved his life by giving him constant care.According to Little Things, the reason poor little Lazarus fell is unknown. When a passerby saw him lying on the ground, she took a close look at him, thinking he was dead. Then, she realized that he was breathing, and she knew that she couldn’t give up on him.

On day three, Lazarus lifted his head and meowed a bit. Day four had him moving his legs, which was a huge relief, as it showed that he wasn’t paralyzed.
