An elderly woman in Argentina was left fighting for her life on Saturday after a cat thrown out of a fourth-floor apartment during a heated argument landed on her head, local media reported.
The incident occurred in the Belgrano neighbourhood of Buenos Aires when, during the dispute, a man grabbed the family cat and threw it at his wife. She managed to dodge the feline, which then sailed through an open window plunging toward the ground and striking the woman, an 85-year-old neighbour.
Police told Argentine media that the victim suffered a fractured skull and was rushed to hospital, where she had to be connected to a ventilator.
The report was silent on the fate of the cat.
What are cat leaves?
Poor kitty! :(
Dogs cause three family arguments every week
Sounds like a scene from a movie.
This sounds reminds me of a segment from the movie “Magnolia”:
Start at 2:30 if you want to fast forward. Warning: graphic language but hilarious to those who enjoy dark humor.
Falling cats of doom... A sign of the pending Apocalypse?
Besides the woman,of course, I sure hope the kitty is okay. The guy who threw the cat needs to be thrown out a window next.
Dunno -- maybe it's somehow related to the cliche that "A bird in the hand is not worth what it leaves."
Woman: What am I doing here?
St. Peter: I doubt you’d believe it if I told you.
