"Smelly Cat" with Annie Bruce, Good Cats Wear Black
If your cat is urinating outside the litter box, there are some things you can do. First of all, take your cat to the vet to rule out any health problems. In other words, "If he wets ­ see the vet." If he comes back with a clean bill of health, try using different litter boxes, both covered and uncovered, and also try using different litters. You will also need to neutralize the spots, and a good spot remover that also removes the pheromones is Get Serious. Annie also talks about declawing causing litter problems, and what you can do to help.
