If it's true that cats have nine lives, this cat just used up all nine -- one for every story he fell after slipping of an apartment building's terrace.

Gizmo suffered only minor injuries after he fell off a 12th floor terrace of his Manhattan apartment building, reports The Associated Press.

He crashed onto a third-floor landing and became wedged between a skylight and a wall.

Owner Samuel Jacobs rushed Gizmo to a vet, but the cat only had scratches and a broken tooth.
