Q. My cat is really constipated. Throwing up white foam. Cries when we pet her. Laying uncomfortably in the corner and keeps trying to go to the restroom

A. This is an emergency. You need to take your cat to a Pet ER or a veterinarian now. If this is really constipation, the vet will have to put your kitty on fluids, and administer and enema and possibly medicate her with medication that pulls fluid into the feces in order to soften them. Please take her to an ER now.
