Two nights ago my cat sustained a bit of an injury playing

Customer Question

Hello. Two nights ago my cat sustained a bit of an injury playing with my other cat, he tumbled off the couch and I think he hurt his lower back . Initially that night he went to bed but had a difficult time finding a comfortable position as he would whine a little bit when he laid down . But the next day and this morning, even though he seems more tired than usual, he still walks, eats, drinks, plays, climbs his cat tree, and uses the bathroom as normal. I notice however, at certain times when I touch his lower back it seems to be uncomfortable for him. Or sometimes when he wakes up after a nap he can seem a bit sore. I will bring him to the vet tomorrow if his lower back seems sore, but wondering if you have any suggestions.
