The cat righting reflex is a cat's innate ability to orient itself as it falls in order to
land on its feet. ... Depending on the cat's flexibility and initial angular momentum,
if any, the ...
To understand how a cat can land on it's feet, you must first understand some ...
its legs increases its rotational inertia and thus slows the catï¿½s angular speed.

The cat then creates an internal moment by twisting its body muscles. And just
like a skater pulling in her arms at a spin in order to increase the angular velocity
