JURUPA VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - A 5-week-old kitten was lucky to land on its feet after it fell from the grip on a hawk in a Jurupa Valley neighborhood.

KCBS-TV reports (https://cbsloc.al/1BoopQe ) that resident Lindsay Gage spotted the white kitten flying by as she was leaving her house. The hawk lost its grip as it flew from its perch on a neighbor’s basketball hoop and Gage scooped the feline up before the bird could come back for its prey.

Riverside County Animal Services spokesman John Welsh says Gage took the kitten to the Western Riverside County/City Animal Shelter in Jurupa Valley. The cat had a wound to its chest area, but it does not appear to be life threatening.
