*Updated* Does Your CH Cat Have ‘Frog Legs’?

September 10, 2012

Sometimes our cats just do the cutest things.

In addition to the “CH stance,” it sounds like some of you have noticed another phenomena: frog legs.

Sheila noticed Buster’s frog legs, Renee sent in a photo about Kiki’s frog legs, we’ve noticed it on Ellie — even Rich commented that his CH cat Kitty does the same.

Does your cat have “frog legs”? Please comment or feel free to send me a photo and I’ll add it! Click “Read more” to see reader photos!

Update (9/10): Here’s a photo of Lauren’s Mimosa!

And Megan’s Bumper:

Sarah’s Sierra:

Paige’s Mister Wobbles:

Deb’s Shakey Pudding Pie:

I was at a shelter the other day and even saw this (non-CH) dog doing it!

    OMG!!! YES!!! Jasper has them but I haven’t taken a photo of it. For him, it mostly happens when he’s on the tile in the kitchen or “prepping” to sit a spell on the carpet. TOO FUNNY!!!! He also tends to high step his back legs almost if not flat out stepping on top of his front feet while walking. I’ll totally get my camera ready as when I cook he comes to the kitchen to watch! πŸ˜€

    Chairman does the frog legs a lot, especially if he goes too fast and his legs slip and he goes *whumpf* on the floor πŸ˜›

    Kiara does the frog legs all the time! I didn’t even consider the fact that it could be a CH thing.

      I have no idea if it *is* a CH thing, but I thought it was funny that several of us have noticed it! Do you have any photos?

    That’s so cute! I guess the wide frog legs give them better stability?
    You know, what I love the best about this blog is that it shows how differences are just another kind of ‘normal.’ In this case it’s about cats, but the general perspective can be applied to people as well. Thanks Amanda!
