I had Nacho running around in my room and he escaped out of my room. The center area of the second floor has a barrier on one side overlooking the first floor. He had escaped before and only looked over the edge before. Tonight he ran out and just went over the edge. I ran over on the verge of tears and saw his little body brush up against the wall, rotating him so that he landed on his back I think. I quickly ran down and had walked for a big. I grabbed him and brought him back up to his cage. Before I put him in I felt his legs and paws and did not feel a fracture. Once I put him down in his cage he hopped around and started eating his hay. I gave him a raisin and he ate it as normal. He was a bit reserved at first but I think it was from the shock of the accident. I'm having trouble believing that nothing happened to him. Is it possible for a chin to survive a ~10 foot fall onto tile?? He looks fine now but if he shows any strange signs I will go to the vet right away. I'm worried that he might have internal injuries. I feel terrible and know that I let Nacho down.
