NEW YORK (AP) — A cat named Gizmo has only minor injuries after a nine-story fall at a Manhattan apartment building.

The Daily News (http://nydn.us/VpKwXV ) reports Gizmo fell off a 12th-floor terrace on Tuesday. He crashed onto a third-floor landing and became wedged between a skylight and a wall.

Owner Samuel Jacobs says the grey and black cat was “freaked out.” He rushed his pet to a vet, fearing massive internal injuries.

The diagnosis: scratches and a broken tooth.
