One of mine stands like that too. I read on one site years ago (can't remember which breeder) that this is common due to their long legs. My other two don't stand that way, one of whom has way longer legs than the cat with the funny stance. Anyway, it hasn't hampered him in any way and he has no abnormalities in leg or joint structure.
It can happen in long-legged cats. Generally speaking, in the cat world we don't want "cow-hocked" cats, but it has been noted in Savannahs that with the long back legs sometimes it appears to be like that but isn't a true fault in most cases
Xumi does this, too. It's because their hind legs are longer than the front ones. Sometimes it also gives the appearence of swaying when she's slowly walking. When I first noticed this, I said "Hey, you're waddling!" She just looked at me, like "I do NOT waddle! That is merely a cyclic displacement of mass normal to the vector of direction of travel!"
