A. There are a number of possibilities here but in an older cat I would be concerned about urinary tract infections, kidney or hormonal issues which are resulting in a need to urinate more frequently or a mobility / arthritis issue where it is more difficult to get down and use her litter tray. Anxiety can also cause similar problems if her routine or environment has changed. I recommend a full blood and urine panel to rule out internal causes initially
