Hello, I found this kitten (Max) in my friends yard this past November . I knew from the first week we got him he was diffrent, he is unlike any cat I have ever had. He is dog like, very intelligent , watches everything you do and even lays like a dog with his back legs strait out. He is very playful but doesn’t like to be held or snuggle. I think he might be a Bengal mix. He is grey/white with slight mixed in marble markings not the same on both sides, on one side looks like a c and he has a white line across his back like a basket handle with what I call racing stripes down his back side to his tail, stripes on his legs and face/ chin slight ringed tail solid at the tip but tail is short and stands angled towards his head a bit, and has a grey spotted belly which is lighter. He has big feet and short front legs. I’ve been doing some research online to find out what he is. He also has a stocky body and a flap of skin hanging from his belly. He is about 4 1/2 months from what I figure and is about 7 lbs. he also pounces like a tiger, sometimes on my face in the morning.. He is very dominate over my older tabby, he grabs her and bear hugs her with all his weight. I have many beautiful pictures of him if you would like to see. He is a georgous cat and I would just love to know what he might be. I have researched several diffrent types of cats and his personality most matches the Bengal . I would appreciate your knowledge. thank you.
I know what you might be thinking, but dogs with this type of feet don't have retractable claws! According to the American Kennel Club, a dog with a cat foot simply has a paw that is neat and round, characterized by high-arched toes that are closely held together. As the name implies, this type of foot is nicely rounded and compact and highly resembles those seen in cats. With short third digital bones, these paws help increase a dog's endurance because they require less energy to lift off the ground. They also give dogs a good grip and help prevent injuries when they walk on rough terrains. These catlike paws are, therefore, often found in working dogs that are bred to have good endurance in the field. Depending on the breed, cat feet may be a highly desirable trait or a major fault.

Boutin, along with her husband, put a ladder up to see if they could reach the cat, but the ladder turned up short. "It climbed another 10 feet last night," she said. "He [the cat] just can't figure it out."
