|Isabelle, given your cat's age and the increased water consumption, I would probably take her in to be checked out. I think when it comes to stuff like this, it's better safe than sorry. And cats are SUCH creatures of habit that any time we notice a marked change in their routines, it's wise to pay heed to what might be causing those changes.
When was the last time Isabelle was at the vet's for a full workup? As a senior cat, she should be seeing the vet twice yearly instead of once per year, she should receive only vaccinations as required by law, and should have bloodwork and urinalysis done at least once (preferably twice) per year. If that has not been done in the last six months to a year, I would definitely take her in and have those tests run just to make sure all is well. The earlier you catch these things, the easier it is to treat them.
