My cat (short hair brown tabby) is about 14-15 years old, and she can't stand the sight of the other 2 cats in the house
one of the two cats is as old as she is (long haired orange tabby) but not blood related and the other is newly adopted (calico, a year or so ago). She usually puts up with the older cat but now she can't stand him and the new cat, is it because she's just old? She had a sister and they got along fine, but when the sister cat passed away she's been acting like this.

If your Tabby hasn't been to the vet in a while, she needs to go in for an exam. Sometimes when a kitty doesn't feel well, this is how she acts. Also, cats are very sensitive to losing a companion and she could still be grieving for her sister and resenting the Calico. In addition, when cat get older (your cat is over a hundred in "people years") they can suffer from the same sort of dementia-like conditions that senior people do. Tell your vet what's happened and how she's acting and they can advise you on whether medication might help.

I don't think there is anything wrong with her.
Sometimes cats become jealous of the other cats around the house because they think he or her(other cats) is more spoiled then her. I would just for a while give her extra treats and love that only she gets. And then you will soon find out if she is jealous or not. Good Luck
