Default cat acting weird

My cat has started peeing in the corner near our front door. She's very
old, so I don't exactly know if this is an age thing or what. The simple
solution is to take her to the vet, but my budget is super tight and she
seems healthy in all other aspects, so I am thinking maybe just move the
litter box there. Here again that means dealing with litter on the carpets,
but that's got to be better than pee right? I really don't know what to
think. Anyone?

She might have a UTI and she might be in pain. Please take her to the
vet.

I think that you need to bring her to the vet anyway, in case it's a medical
issue.

It won't cost that much, anyway.

Two things come to my mind...

I bet your cat is trying to tell you something..think about it...

old or not...if she is going in the same place...it's deliberate not an
accident..yeah...sounds like an infection..what do they give'm
antibiotics..

I see cat food too...that helps prevent UTI...

I'd be willing to bet she is communicating with you / Mommy help it
burns!

ooops second thought...

I knew an elderly lady, who lived in an old old house...with literally
no convenient place to put a litter box...so I helped her modify one of
them wicker chests...where the back was almost gone...we set plants on
it..but the litter box was under it...it looked cool and solved the
problem..the walls also contained the mess...and quality cat litter
kept he smell to null.

Sometimes, just the presence of a previous bowel movement in the litter box
is enough to make a cat "go" elsewhere.
