I’ve heard that it could be a few things…

  1. Kitty has a bladder infection. A vet visit and antibiotics are the only solution here.
  2. Someone moved his litter box. Sometimes kitties forget where their litter box is once it’s been moved. If you ever move a litter box, you should do it slowly… a few feet at a time over several days.
  3. He’s not fixed and has taken to marking his territory. Again… a vet visit will fix this. No pun intended. LOL!

that’s so strange 🙁 i had a female cat that did the same and she would pee on laundry, bags, or anything that had a strong human smell.  i had to clean her litter box daily and i got her own litter box (i had another male cat).  i wouldnt leave anything on the floor that would tempt her but she would still pee on the sofa… i ended up giving her away because she was ruining too much… nothing worked for her! she would piss on the couch as im standing right there by her! ahhh (bringing back memories)

i had a different male cat, same, peeing on furniture and in plants.  we got him neutered and it fixed the problem. 

sorry… i know how much cat urine can smell…

If he is peeing in one spot, he feels guilty about not using the litterbox. If he were “spraying”, he would do it in multiple places since it’s marking his scent on things. I’d also recommend taking him to the vet. It may just be a urinary tract infection which are VERY common in cats. In the meantime, try switching his food to something with cranberry extract in it. It will help fight in the infection before you can get him to the vet.

mrscheetos: she kept on peeing on the bathroom tile.  we only had her for about a month when it started.  then she got sick and after five vet visits (including an emergency vet visit), our vet did a full blood test and her BUN, creatinine, and some other levels were off the charts.  she was under a year old and the levels were those of a 20 year old cat with bad kidneys.  our vet said it was probably congenital or she was poisoned when she was really young. 

it was tough but we already fell in love with her so we couldn’t bear taking her back to the shelter.  we gave her the best last few months of her life.  she hated the subcutaneous fluids we had to flush her kidneys with so we decided to not subject her to the pain.  during her last week, she couldn’t hold her urine, puked up everything she ate, and pooped where she slept.  she had long since stopped sleeping on the bed with us because she was afraid to soil the bed. when we looked into her eyes, we didn’t see any more joy left.  that’s when we knew it was time to end her misery.  it was the toughest thing we’ve ever had to do.  i slept on the ground with her on her last night with us.  she slept on my chest.

but i’m not saying that your cat has kidney failure.  that’s just a worst case scenario.  maybe it’s just a UTI — if that’s the case, antibiotics should help.  our cat couldn’t take the liquid antibiotics so we had a special antibiotic cream made that we rubbed on the inside of her ears.  my friend even made up special antibiotic cat treats for her.

Another reason is that the litterbox may not be changed as often as he likes.
