Aussie cat falls 34 floors and lands on feet
(12-24 12:53)

A lucky Australian cat used up one of its lives when it survived a 34-story plunge from an apartment building window.

The seven-year-old moggy Voodoo vanished from her high-rise flat on the Gold Coast on Monday and reappeared on the ground where his fall was apparently broken by some well-placed bushes.

The cat's owner, Sheree Washington, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Voodoo was fond of standing on a small ledge outside the flat.

''We've had a look at where he landed and one of the branches that was broken has got cat hair on it and it's about an inch in diameter. So he was a very lucky pussy cat,'' Washington said.

Voodoo got away with only minor injuries.
