Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
I am sorry to hear you are worried about Celeste. Is she still eating and drinking?The most common reason for frequent trips to the litter box with little or no urine passing is a bladder infection or UTI (urinary tract infection). Other possible causes are bladder stones, or bladder tumors. However, cystitis (infection/inflammation of the bladder) is the most likely problem she has.If this is an infection, she will get better with antibiotics. If it is an infection and is not treated, it could become a kidney infection which is serious and even life threatening.You could try to find a house call vet in your area if you can't take her to a veterinarian. This should be treated and she will probably get better if it is treated. There is always a chance she will get better on her own, but since she is older I would not recommend not doing anything.Please let me know what other questions you have.
You are welcome. You could try confining her to a room before the vet gets there. I hope you are able to get her some help. Please let me know how she is doing.
