Witness David Katcsma captured the feline's escape from the Towers Hotel as it was being demolished on Thursday.
The fire started at around 3 a.m. CT, engulfing the entire hotel. What remained of the charred structure was pulled down by 12:30 p.m.
As the building started to come down, the black-and-white cat was seen perched on a window frame, on the left-hand side of the attached video.
