Friend, the history and symptoms you are describing are consistent with a urinary tract infection. You see, she is crying because she has an infection that is causing irritation (inflammation) of the urethra (tube connecting bladder to vagina). When the urethra is inflamed it gives the feeling of having to urinate, this is why she is going more frequent or staying near the litter box. Other possible causes could be bladder stones. I understand you would want a natural approach. But, there is really not much naturally that I can recommend that will completely eliminate the infection. She will need to be seen by your family veterinarian to rule out bladder stones and start her on oral antibiotics. In the meantime you can increase her water intake by offering low sodium chicken broth, the flushing action of water will help with the inflammation and infection. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon! Dr. Peter
