Hi, I can help you with your question today.
Unfortunately, there are no appropriate over the counter pain medications to give you cats. We are very limited in pain control options for cats, even in terms of prescription medications. If her kidney function is still good, we can use a prescription medication called Onsior. If not, we can use a different medication called buprenorphine. These will have to be obtained by prescription through your local vet.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
