I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your elderly cat, please?

Is "swinging" in pee, sitting in pee? If so, if a fastidious cat is so weak as to not move away from urine after urinating, a cat is critically ill and in need of the attention of her vet at your earliest convenience. The cause of her crying is unclear at this time and so her vet will want to perform a complete physical exam including fasted (for at least 4 hours prior to a blood draw; never restrict water, however) diagnostics in the form of blood and urine tests. We're mainly concerned with degenerative disorders such as chronic kidney disease and neoplasia (cancer) in cats of her age.
