    Take the cat to the vet!!  A limp could be a symptom of many things.  It could be as simple as a sprain which can heal by itself or it could be a dislocation, trouble with the back and/or spine, or another serious problem.

    Cats hide their illnesses because, in the wild, weakness shown means other animals may prey on them.  By the time a cat shows it's illness or problem, it can be major.

    A vet is necessary at this point.

    Yes, I agree, take it to the vet.  I'm getting a message that that answer is too short, but that's really all I have to say.  Take it to the vet.

    It's not uncommon for a cat to misjudge a jump, if it seems serious get it checked out.
