Cat hits branch on 80-foot fall from tree

COLUMBIA, S.C., (UPI) -- Piper, a South Carolina cat, ended an eight-day tree sit with an 80-foot fall to the ground but didn't sustain any major injuries.

Piper's owner, Rodney Colvin, said rescuers climbed the tree Monday to get the cat down, but Piper just kept climbing higher.

WLXT-TV reports a thin branch Piper rested on suddenly snapped, sending Piper towards the ground.

He hit a branch on the way down which may have reduced any injuries.

Colvin found Piper hiding under a car and said he looked OK -- but he took him to the vet anyway.
