Our cat got hit with a log
I was working up a tree in the garden today, and a fairly heavy tree log (which I was sawing) eventually gave way, and although the cat was not underneath when I was cutting, he walked right in the way of the falling log. The log fell right onto his shoulder, although he ran away quickly, as apposed to hitting the ground unable to move. He came back 2 hours later, although is off his food, and just wants to be left alone. He has also tucked himself away in his bed. He is usually always hungry and full of beans. Could this maybe be shock, or something more serious. He shows no signs of pain when you touch any part of his body, and his eyes look perfect. Thanks.

I would definitely recommend that you take him to see a vet as soon as you can. Even if he has not broken the shoulder their may be a hairline fracture or bad bruising which cat the very least he needs some pain relief for.
His symptoms definitely suggest that he is in some pain and discomfort.
I hope he is better soon
best wishes Kate
