Didn’t see it happen.. didn’t hear it happen.. just frantically looking for him at 6am this morning and found him outside hidden behind the bins.. He’s not limping or holding his paws up.. not crying.. he’s eating fine.. but just doesn’t seem himself.. I understand a vet is the best option but I lost my job after the first lockdown and we’re currently surviving on bare minimum. Thanks

I think that often if there is an injury caused by a fall from height, it is to the jaw. Cats have the ability to absorb a considerable shock, but when the fall is too high it is the head that strikes the ground. As your cat is eating normally, it looks like he got away with it. If he doesn't seem himself, it might just be that he isn't happy having been stuck outside...

he may be bruised or shaken up a bit..but most cats ought to be ok... do you have a PDSA in your area ?
do you have a rspca number, perhaps they can look him over? don't know if they will, or if they charge but it might be worth a go.

Should also add.. he’s been up and downstairs no problem.. jumped on the bed a couple of times too..
had a wee fright..lots of cuddles...
https://www.pdsa.org.uk/
see if they can advise/help its best to perhaps get the cat checked
over.
and ..shut windows..or keep fixed so he can't get through again..
If he's moving okay, eating as usual, going to the toilet as usual there is probably nothing wrong except he's a bit shook up. He should be back to normal in a day, just give him peace and quiet and a fuss when he wants it

If he doesn't seem himself, it might just be that he isn't happy having been stuck outside overnight in the cold. Possibly a little bruised, but he'll get over that. The last thing he wants is to be poked and prodded by a strange man in a room that smells of dogs.

I would just make a fuss of him, and let him have a good sleep. Only worry if he is still out of sorts after a few days.
Lots of cuddles .... and shut the Windows !!
I am shocked
some very cruel frenz said
throw it out again and see if it survives
