A falling cat became the became the best catch of the match at a college football game in Miami.

Onlookers were shocked and horrified to see a black and white cat dangling from the upper deck at the Hard Rock Stadium.


It was unclear to all how the cat managed to be in the stadium in the first place.

And when people tried to help the cat he got scared, slipped, and was left dangling by one paw with a drop of 60 feet below him.


Fortunately the fans below saw what was going on, they quickly grabbed their American flag that was tied to the railings  and held it out to catch the falling cat.

When the cat finally managed to untangle his paw, he fell and as the onlookers screamed he was saved by the American flag.


Of course the falling cat knew what to do, he turned his body round while holding out its paws to help slow the fall as he plummeted through the air.

Thankfully he was saved by the flag and a big cheer went up as one of the fans held the cat high in the air to show everybody that he was unharmed.

Watch the video to see what happened:
