Gilbert the kitten is resting comfortably at a New York City animal hospital after nearly losing all of his nine-lives just two weeks ago. The curious four-month-old miraculously survived a seven-story balcony fall after being found by a good Samaritan, who rushed him to Animal Care & Control. The tiny kitten fractured the roof of his mouth, and broke both of his front legs in the tumble.
"He's all dressed up for Spring!" Look at his little casts!
Gilbert was so excited to see the camera, the reporter had to hold him to keep him off his feet.
Dr. Stephanie Janeczko says Gilbert is making a great recovery and is not expected to sustain any long-term health problems from the fall. He'll be ready for his new forever home soon, and I'm sure this beautiful blue-eyed baby will get scooped up quickly! We're rooting for you, Gilbert!
