JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A house cat in Alaska is recuperating after surviving a fall from 11 stories up.
The Juneau Empire reports (http://bit.ly/155gwT4) the 2-year-old cat, named Wasabi, was chasing a mosquito Monday in her owners' apartment in Juneau, about two blocks from the state Capitol.
The mosquito escaped out a window and Wasabi went after it. Stephanie Gustafson says her mother watched the female cat fall. The cat landed in a parking lot.
Gustafson found Wasabi huddled nearby, bloody and wet from rain.
The cat suffered a fractured leg and broke bones in a joint. After an operation, pins and wires are holding her fractured bones together, and she's sporting a pink cast.
Gustafson says Wasabi is expected to heal in about six weeks.
