Anticipating the cat's inevitable tumble, the crowd managed to ease her fall by catching her in a blanket. Video shows the animal scampering into an adjacent alleyway - seemingly uninjured, thanks in part, no doubt, to her rescuers.
At the time, it wasn't clear just how the cat got into that predicament in the first place or if she even had an owner. The Dodo has since spoken with a staff member of the bed & breakfast who confirmed that she is actually one of the facility's resident pets who has a penchant for escaping.
As it turns out, the cat has made a break for it before, only to show back up to the doorstep a few days later. They're hoping this time she'll do the same.
