My sister has an aged white Manx whomI think may have DJD. I am responding to an article in your August 2008 issue of Cat Fancy. Do you have any additional information about this feline disease?

I am interested in findng out where the picture of the cat on page 11 was taken(April 2008 issue). Our cat, which was a stray, looks identical to it and I was curious as to whether or not it was taken in Connecticut.
