Thank you for the information. From what you describe it certainly sounds like Sunshine is not yet comfortable with her new surroundings. The behavior you describe is behavior commonly seen by female cats nesting or securing their safe "territory". Twelve years old is a little young for cognitive decline (dementia) commonly seen in older cats displaying these symptoms, but that is possible also.
In answer to your question Sunshine would do much better if you could provide her a small space with her food, water, bed, and litter box like a small room, closet, or cage. At night Sunshine should be confined to this small area. It would make her much more secure in her surroundings.
Hope this helps, we try to answer your questions and concerns as best we can on this site without the benefit of a proper physical examination. Please appreciate that it is always advisable to seek local veterinary care if possible. Let me know if there is anything further I can help you with. Thanks so much, and kind regards!
Correct. But I doubt the crying will happen much after a few days.
You are very welcome.
