Why do cats always land on their feet?
Cats are said to have nine lives as they land safely on the ground. How does this happen?
It's a reflexive instinct the cat's body has naturally. The second the cat fall its body will correct the position so it will land on its feet. It has also been proven that cats falling from heights greater than five stories will suffer less injury because it will have more time to correct its body position.
The answer is they don't. Cats always landing on their feet is a myth. If a cat is only falling a short distance, they might not have the time to get twisted around. Sick or injured cats might be physically incapable of twisting their bodies in the air. If you change the question to "Do cats land on their feet most of the time?" you have a valid question.

Why do cats always land on their feet?I have wondered that for a while after I realized that the part that they land on (most of the time) is not the heaviest part of their body.
