Hello again, Anthony.
I'm sorry Linda is feeling uncomfortable. From your description, it sounds like she may have developed a urinary tract infection, feline idiopathic cystitis, or a bladder blockage.
If she is unable to pee a full stream and keeps licking this area and trying to pee, but can't, normally, something is blocking her bladder from allowing her to pee. She could have developed bladder stones, kidney stones or crystals, which are tiny, sand-like particles that develop in urine that is not acidic enough.
Here is more information:
I'm assuming Linda is spayed, but if not, she could have a serious uterine infection called pyometra, which needs immediate veterinary attention.
If she is spayed, we don't have to worry about this.
You will need to bring her to the nearest ER vet center to have her assessed, treated and the blockage removed, so she can pee normally again. Right now, she's extremely uncomfortable.
I hope all will be well with your Linda! Please let me know how she's doing and what the vet's diagnosis is, after she's seen in person. Thanks!
