Hi this is DRB....... and I would be happy to help you with this..........this is a very common problem in older kitties.......and there are many things you can do to help this. So, adding water like you are doing is a great idea and helps alot. The other thing I want you to do is to purchase some miralax from the human pharmacy ( you need the powder) and mix in 1/4 teaspoon twice daily with her canned food and water. This will make going to the bathroom much easier for her. You can start first with 1/8 teaspoon twice daily and then gradually increase after a few days if you need to. This will help and you should not have to do anything else. And this is also very safe for long term use. I hope this helps you and let me know if you need additional help. Sincerely, DRB
