2 days ago we saw one of our cats injure himself. He is an outdoor cat and was jumping down from our fence, onto our garbage can and then to the ground. While jumping down from the garbage can somehow his back leg got caught in the handle and he hung upside down for about 2 seconds before getting his leg out. Since then he has been limping on it. He does put the leg down and walk on it, but you can see a slight limp and you can see he has some discomfort when he initially goes to lay down on that side. Beside that he is still active, he will jump up and down on objects and is eating well. Do you think he could have seriously injured himself or would a slight limp like this heal up in a few days?
