In slow motion it looks like the cat is spotting the ground like a dancer, or I imagine a gymnast or diver or figure skater, does when doing multiple turns especially while jumping and then knows when to alter momentum when it’s time to land so that they land in the orientation desired instead of any which way. What the guy says is that it’s hard to stop momentum while turning and assumes like him the cat should flip over and keep turning instead of stopping at “legs down” and then falling the rest of the way. It seems like the difference between a stuntperson falling off a roof and an ordinary untrained person; the trained stuntperson trains in the “way of the cat” whereas anyone else might seriously injure themselves depending on the insufficient ability to slow momentum and orient themselves in the short time and how they end up landing.
Maybe they should teach “falling” in gym class as a life-saving skill you might actually need in life.

The Air Force weightless cat video he references is fantastic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9XtK6R1QAk
I’d have to admit, I looked at Annie-the-cat cross eyed a few times today wanting to flip her. I swear, I think she’d just fall on her head. Couldn’t do it.
I think I made her a little nervous though, so small victory for me.
