Question one year old cat with arthritis???

Is it possible for a one year old cat to have arthritis?

I have a neutered male ginger shorthair who has been a little down lately and I have noticed that he has been moving around very gingerly. He has always walked in an awkward position as well as slept on his back. He has been having problems jumping up onto the computer desk (his very favorite spot) as well as jumping up onto my lap.

I do have another male cat in the house who is 6 months old and has been treated for a respiratory problem (a cat cold). While this one still is sneezy - he seems to be fine. We have had this one for a couple of months now.

Is this a reaction to the other cat or is it possible he has arthritis?

Concerned ... Shelli
