What causes this effect (motion artifacts)?

I took this picture of cats having a dispute over who got to sit in the window using a Canon PowerShot SX210 IS. There's something weird going on with their outstretched paws. It isn't motion blur. It more like different sections of the photo come from different moments. What causes this?
