Is it normal?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have been observing Kahu - most of you will have seen him over at the lounge.
Anyway, after observing him, I wondered something, he is now 6 months old, and he cannot jump very high, for example, he cannot jump as high as the computer desk, or the kitchen counter (thankfully) and his legs are a little shorter than I have seen on other cats his age, and I was wondering is it normal for him to be unable to jump that high? When I adopted Romeo, he was 6 months old and he could get into everything. I am just a little confused.

I would say that this is normal, and it could very well be that his legs are shorter than normal. Kitties grow and develope at different rates, so I wouldn't think this is anything to worry about. It's possible that he may never jump very high. We have a kitty now who is a bit older than yours and still can't jump on the counter, although we think it's because she just hasn't figured it out yet.

Kellye it really is perfectly normal, and Kahu's legs and body will soon catch up to him and you will wish he couldn't jump then!

AngelZoo, If it's a La Perm or Curl mixed with a Munchkin, then it's not a Munchkin only a mix. A pure breed Munchkin is only crossed with another Munchkin or a Domestic cat.

LaPerm/Am Curl/Scottish Fold munchkins are considered to be experimental breeds.

Personally I don't think that they have been bred enough to find out if they have any genetic problems. I also think that breeding a munchkin with any other breed other than a domestic or munchkin is wrong (to many fatal genes popping up).
