Watch Football Fans Ingeniously And Patriotically Save A Falling Cat

The fur flew at a University of Miami football game on Saturday ― and thankfully some fans caught it. (See the video above.)

Viral videos of a cat dangling by its claws from the upper deck at Hard Rock Stadium revealed the happy ending ― and a patriotic one at that.

Some quick-thinking spectators stretched out an American flag to cushion the kitty’s fall after it plummeted from above.

“It hung there for a little while with its two front paws, then one paw, then I was like, ’Oh my goodness, it’s coming soon,” Craig Cromer, who brings a flag to each home game, told the New York Post.

“Strangest thing that’s ever happened at a game,” his wife, Kimberly Cromer, told The Associated Press.

The wire service reported that the cat was “not showing signs of any injury.”

The cat landed safely, according to the stadium Twitter account. “We wish the cat the best in his remaining eight lives,” the stadium tweeted. 

Miami defeated Appalachian State 25-23, but the best catch happened off the field, AP noted.

Miami couple who helped save falling cat say they bring American flag to every game

Craig and Kimberly Cromer join 'Fox & Friends' to explain what happened and why they bring an American flag to every game.

The Miami couple who helped save a cat by using their American flag as a safety net told local media that they bring the flag to every Hurricane home game they attend in Hard Rock Stadium. 

"My wife takes the U.S. flag with us to all of our football games, and we normally Zip-tie it to the handrail, and so we snatched it off the handrail and used it to break the cat’s fall," Craig Cromer told WSVN.

Cromer, a 21-year U.S. Air Force veteran, and his wife Kimberly spoke about the "eventful" night on "Fox & Friends" Monday.

Video taken by fans during Saturday night's game against Appalachian State went viral. 

Footage showed the cat dangling about 50 feet in the air -- on the side of a balcony. The cat eventually fell and -- much to the crowd's delight --landed in an extended American flag below. The crowd erupted as though the Hurricanes connected on a game-winning drive. 

Kimberly Cromer said she didn't know where the cat came from or how it got to the balcony during the game but it was wearing a collar.

The WSVN report said the cat eventually left the venue with a woman on Saturday night.
