Why did my cat urinate outside of the litter box?
Cats can urinate in places other than their litter boxes for a number of
reasons. One of the most common reasons is that the litter box is not
clean enough. If the litter box is clean, it's possible that it is not
placed in the perfect location – one that is private and accessible.
If you've ruled out those reasons, consider behavioral or medical
reasons. Cats that are not neutered or fixed may spray urine to mark
their territory. If you suspect a medical issue such as a bladder
infection, consult your veterinarian.

Scoop the waste in the litter box and dispose of it at least once a day, or
twice if you can. In addition, change the litter completely at least once
a week. Cats are finicky, so you might even want to try different
brands or types of litter to see which one your cat responds to best.
If that's not enough, look for a product designed for eliminating odor
in litter. There are several cat-friendly powders that are made to
absorb moisture and odor from urine. Just sprinkle the power in the box
Now you know the basics about why your cat might urinate outside of
