How can I prevent falls?

Kitty high-rise syndrome

Despite the myth that a cat always lands on his feet, a cat falling from a high place often gets hurt. Broken legs to shattered shoulders are just some of the injuries that can happen if a cat jumps from too high a distance. Cats that live in apartments have higher risks of injury from a fall off a balcony, so screen in your balcony to keep Kitty contained.
