A flying cat in China knocked out a man recently.

A flying cat knocked out a man walking his dog recently, providing yet another small way that 2020 has been simply bizarre.

To be fair, it wasn’t exactly a flying cat, but more one that was “falling with style,” as Buzz Lightyear so proudly proclaimed in Toy Story. 

This happened in the city of Harbin in the Heilongjiang province of China, and here at Dog O’Day we learned of it through the New York Post. Harbin is located in the northeast part of the country and is the eighth-largest city in China, according to Wikipedia, and the capital of its province.

The black and white cat belonged to a neighbor in the same apartment building, and according to the New York Post, the victim’s name was Gao.

The victim, who appears to have been walking a Golden Retriever, immediately crumples to the ground after being clobbered by the furry projectile, according to footage of the incident on YouTube.

It seems almost certain that Gao had to spend time in the hospital, and we can only imagine the  severity of injuries caused by cat claws aided by several stories’ worth of gravity. We hope he’s okay, and that nothing bad happened to the cat afterward, either.

While dog walking isn’t usually that dangerous (as flying cats are admittedly quite rare), there are some common rules of etiquette that make things work better while out with a pupper, some of which we recount earlier in this paragraph.

If we were to venture a guess, we’d guess that something similar may have happened to the eponymous feline stray of the video game of the same title heading to the PlayStation 5 in early 2021.

Where does a flying cat rank on the strangeness of 2020, do you think?
