Default Cats back legs.

I've noticed that my 19 week old kittens back legs seem to be bent all the time. I hadn't really noticed it before until I took him to my sisters for Christmas and she has his brother from the same litter and his back legs are completely straight but his are always bent. Almost like he's hunched over. He also has terrible balance for a cat. I thought it was just because he was a kitten, but looking at my sisters cat who was walking across the back of the chair. There is no way my cat could do that.

Is it a shelter cat? My dad jokingly says he got a "Defective" cat from the shelter. He's round with stubby legs and he has to guestimate every time to judge if he can jump up on furnature or not. I think he might have had an accident when he was younger and now just sort of deals with his handicap. He's definately defictive compared to my Pipin, who tried to jump ontop of a high shelf, held on with his claws for a couple mins and plumped to the ground. Mom said it was a comical fail.. though could have done damage to the antique furnature lol.
