Default Web-footed kitty

hello everyone im new here. I was just wondering if anybody ever seen a web-footed kitten. a little kitten just came out of the woods the other day and upon watching it strech its toes we noticed its front feet are webed down to the lsat joint in its toes. just wondering what you all might think of this. also i looked around the web but found nothing except something about a wild cat in africa with webed feet. any help or imput would be helpful.

Welcome, my kitties all have webbing between their toes. It doesn't go all the way out to where their claws are, but it is a good portion of the length of the toe. I think, perhaps, what you are seeing is normal?

I think all kitties have that webbing, and there's some genetic variation in the amount of webbing.
Arianwen has a lot of webbing between her toes.

It could be the kitties with more paw webbing are in the aquatic division of the Kitty Invasion Force.
