The owner of a red MG sedan whose window was smashed by a chonky cat that fell from the sixth floor of a Bangkok condo said the kitty somehow did not sustain any severe injuries.

Shifu the cat only suffered two broken nails after falling from the sixth floor of their Bangkok condominium and falling onto the sedan, according to the vehicle’s owner.

“Update on Shifu, or Master Shifu from Kung Fu Panda. Everything is normal, Shifu can eat, and can excrete normally. There was no swelling or bruising anywhere, only 2 fingers of the nail had come off and small wounds,” wrote the car’s owner, Apiwat, in a Facebook post.

Update: A second cat falls.

Shifu, who reportedly weighs 8.5kg, was found relatively unharmed on Saturday morning following his fall. The condominium manager said that CCTV footage showed the fat cat falling from the sixth floor and landing on the third floor before falling again onto the vehicle below. Shards of glass could be seen everywhere while Shifu was found underneath the car – looking clueless and innocent post-accident.

Despite the damage to his car, Apiwat said he would forgive the cute kitty and its owner for the accident.

The condo manager, identified by media as Orrasa, said the condo has a no-pets policy and charged the owner THB1,000 for violating it.
