Sentence: El gato sale a la calle por la ventana.

I was reading this sentence:

The cat walks out the window.

El gato sale a la calle por la ventana.

It seemed to me that this means more like: The cat go out through

the window.  So I put it into Google, which gave: 

Google: The cat goes outside through the window. Then tried another site:

Reverso: The cat walks out the window.and they translated it as: The cat walks out the window.

I would appreciate getting a clarification on this.  Thank you.

Hola Nicole

I've revised the English translation of this which wasn't correct. "Salir a la calle" is a set expression in Spanish which means "to go outside".

I've changed the English to: The cat goes outside through the window.
