A cat fell 11-stories as the owner of the feline watched in horror. Wasabi, a house cat, was chasing a mosquito around the 11th story apartment when the mosquito went out the window. According to WebProNews on Sept. 6, Wasabi followed the insect right out the window and fell down 11 stories, landing on the pavement of the parking lot below.
The two-year-old cat fell from its owner’s apartment, who saw the entire incident unfold before her very eyes. After the cat went out the window, Stephanie Gustafson ran down to the parking lot to find her cat.
She found her female cat nearby, huddled in a corner and bleeding. She was soak and wet from the rain. Wasabi was taken to the vet and her injuries from the fall were treatable and today she has a pink cast on her leg.
The cat suffered a fractured leg and she also broke bones in one of her joints. She was operated on and some pins were used to put her fractured bones back in place, but the pink cast makes a nice accessory.
The cat is expected to take about six weeks to heal. This is one lucky cat today!
