Cat takes incredible leap of faith from burning NYC apartment

He barely even needed to paws!

A cat stuck in a burning apartment in Harlem took an incredible leap of faith out of the window to officers below, hair-raising video shows.

Aaron Ganaway recorded the orange tabby — which appeared half-blackened by the blaze —  on the second-floor ledge of the building on East 135th Street and Fifth Avenue Saturday evening, NBC New York reported.

As the fire inched closer, the brave feline tried to scale down the side of the building before it ultimately let go — narrowly missed the officers on the ground who were trying to catch it, the footage shows.

Thankfully, the cat survived the fall and was brought to a local animal shelter, where it was treated for smoke inhalation, the outlet reported.

Seven people, including two cops, were injured in the blaze started by an unidentified man who did not live in the building, police said.

Police said the man locked himself in a second-story unit and lit the fire when they showed up to enforce a restraining order.

It’s unclear whether charges have been filed in connection to the inferno.
