Nice point, but unverifiable--"casual indifference" and "grim silent brief prayer to Cat Deity of future sacrifice if I can just make it through this jump" might look quite the same.
There's still the matter that they chose to jump off the roof rather than going back in via the open window via which they got out onto the roof in the first place, and which window they do in fact routinely go in when they feel like it. At most, they're saving themselves the trouble of meowing at the door and waiting for an ambulatory pair of enslaved opposable thumbs to open it.
