Help my little 9 month old bengals been standing weird, ever since she had her first season she's been standing with a humped back but dipped hind quarters is this normal?!? She seems okay but it just looks weird she's not walking funny she's not changed in any way other than standing in this bizarre way she looks like a camel!!

By "first season," I guess you mean her first heat. I'm guessing the humped back and dipped hind quarters is not actually related to the heat cycle. This can signify a spinal injury of some type. I suggest you take her to the vet and have her checked out. They will probably take an x-ray to make sure the spine is okay. You didn't say if she was in any type of pain. Many cats will walk this way at times -- but if this appears to be permanent, something is probably wrong.

She hasn't shown any signs of pain but then I know how good cats are at hiding that anyway, she's running around and playing as normal no change in her behaviour just standing and sitting with a strange dip.. I'll upload a photo I took earlier of her sitting funny, she's not shying away from me touching her back or legs so it's difficult to tell if she was in any pain at all she only occasionally walks with her back humped / dipped but it's just odd behaviour I've never seen her do before and neither of our other two have ever done anything like this

Well, that hump is not exactly normal. Cats have been known to get used to any defects in their spine. As long as she is not in any pain. However, she should have already been seen by a vet -- and they should have some answers for you. She is beautiful, by the way.

That is really strange, but happy she's back to normal.
