I suspect she has a urinary tract infection, but she can't travel to the vet's office. She gets very car sick. Can the vet give me something to make her woozy so she can go to the doctor and get checked out?
I am pulling my hair out. We also just took one of my mom's cats and I was wondering if she is doing this in protest of my mom's cat being there. This cat has lived with several animals including snakes, rats, other dogs, lizards, etc. What do I do?

Be careful with the cranberry meds as cranberries can cause really bad heartburn in some people and animals.
The best thing to do is call your vet and ask about a kitty tranquilizer so you can get your poor fur baby to be checked out ASAP. The vet will need to know the age and weight and hopefully will be willing to prescribe without a prior visit. If he/she won't/can't do that then the only other thing to do is simply place her in a travel kennel and take her in under protest because, whether she likes it or not, it needs to be done.
Can you imagine yourself living in an 864 square foot space with six other human beings of assorted sizes and personalities?
If it is a UTI, there is over the counter cranberry medications for cats that I have used. I think I purchased it at Pet Smart. I then switched to food that was specifically for urinary health and made sure to clean her water dish daily with soap and hot water. You can also purchase a cat water fountain that will help with bacteria.
