My Maine Coon seems ti have a problem with his hind legs. From the knee joints they seem to splay outwards, is this nor
He's just coming up to 2 years old. At first his hind legs didn't look too bad but as he's growing it seem to be getting worse. It doesn't bother him and still climbs and jumps around but I am a little concerned. I trawled the net to find some film of a cat walking away but it's been impossible. Hope someone can help.

I made my MC, Izzie, stand up and then chased him across the living room which means I'll have to sleep with one eye open tonight, but he's a little "knock-kneed" too. Your best bet, if you have questions about your cat's skeltal development, is to check with your vet who can do a simple x-ray of his back legs. Maine Coon's, I've heard, don't reach their full size until they're about 5, so he still has some time to grow yet. Checking with your vet now can help to prevent problems in the future.
