JUNEAU- A house cat in Juneau is recuperating after surviving a fall from 11 stories up.
The 2-year-old cat, named Wasabi, on Monday was chasing a mosquito in her owners' apartment in Mendenhall Tower about two blocks from the Capitol.
The mosquito escaped out a window and Wasabi went after it.
Stephanie Gustafson says her mother watched the Wasabi fall. She landed in a parking lot.
Gustafson found the cat 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.
