Firefighters in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, were called to the scene on Monday, when the pet had apparently become stranded atop an air conditioning unit six floors up. Since no one was home to let them in, the rescue crew didn't try to reach the cat from the nearest window, but rather chose to rappel down from the apartment above. Crazy, right?
Well, unsurprisingly, the panicked animal misread their good intentions and scrambled to get away. After several failed attempts to grab the cat, she ultimately plunged to the ground where, thankfully, other firefighters caught her with an outstretched blanket.
