    A cat named Gizmo has only minor injuries after a nine-story fall from a Manhattan apartment building.

    Gizmo fell off a 12th-floor terrace on Tuesday, his owner, Samuel Jacobs, says. The feline crashed onto a third-floor landing and became wedged between a skylight and a wall.

    Jacobs says his 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.
