Here's more proof that cats always land on their feet.

This particular one, named Sylvester, shocked a crowd of people watching firefighters wash out a hotel fire in Manitoba earlier this week, by walking out of a collapsing building.

Sylvester is clearly one brave little fella. In fact, if you watch Petrosha Blog's YouTube video closely, you can see him curiously peering out the hotel's window prior to its collapse.

According to CTV News, the cat was taken to a vet clinic and was not hurt in its daring escape, except for some smoke inhalation. He has since been reunited with his owner.

The Dauphin Tower's Hotel however, was damaged beyond repair. The RCMP have a man in custody in relation to the fire, which did not cause bodily harm, but left 25 permanent residents homeless, reports CBC News.
