You've received a lot of great advice. Excessive crying is a thing many senior cats do. I've live through two kitties doing this!

It is indeed more a sign of deafness than anything else. The cat cries to echo off its surroundings to determine where s/he his. However it can be a sign of senility as well. Frankly the cat "forgets" where s/he is and wails in attempt to figure it out. I experienced both with my old kitty, Daisy, and would seek her out and cuddle her in the middle of the night when she wailed.

Sad to say there is not a lot you can do to stop the crying in elderly cats. I also had a kitty who would cry, but when I called, "Here Beth, I'm here" she'd stop and find me and settle down.

Best wishes. It is hard, but just think of the many years they've give you their love.
