Default Ear is down??? Injury?

So kia and sabo both jumped on the gate when the cat came downstairs. I told them OFF, and down they went. Problem is they turned into eachother. Sabo landed on Kia's ear/head. Not a full land, but if she were a child, id have said it looked like he boxed her ear. No yelping. No reaction. Now though, that one ear is yoda-like to the side, she keeps shaking her head and stopping to scratch her ear.

Is this a wait it out until the morning? Or could he have caused some major damage? She lets me touch it and doesnt flinch. It doesn't feel hot.

could have some tissue damage. If you can get some arnica gel to put on the area topically, it may help. I don't think it warrants a vet visit...not a whole lot you can do other than wait it out.

Did you look in it? Does it need to be cleaned? Maybe coincidental? Or massaging it?
