after the deck went on the house in st. joe, i let the cats out on it. it was 14′ in the air, so i didn’t worry about them jumping off (no stairs, either). chasey was fine with all four feet on the deck, but sophie more than once jumped off.
i was sitting on the deck, reading a book, and the cats were out hanging out. all of a sudden i heard a scrabble of claws on wood. i whipped around just in time to see sophie lose purchase and start the 14’+ descent to the ground.
great. vet, here we come.
i ran downstairs to get her, and she was just sitting there. probably stunned. she limped for a couple hours, but then she was fine.
