My adult male cat has been peeing where he isn't suppose to. What do I do??
My adult male cat has been peeing where he isn't suppose to. Mainly any clothes laying around, my bed, and even once on the kitchen counter! I cannot even let him in my room anymore because he will immediately pee on any clean or dirty clothes laying around. What do I do????

Your kitty is trying to tell you that something is wrong. First, he needs to go to the vet to check for a urinary tract problem. Infection and inflammation causes painful urination, which the cat may think is caused by the box. He may be trying to find a spot that doesn't hurt.
If he's medically healthy, then maybe there's something about the box that he doesn't like. Have you changed the litter, the location, the type of box? Do you clean it every day? If you've changed anything about the litterbox, change it back; that may be enough to get him back into it.
If it's not his health or the box itself, then he is stressed about something; he is marking territory to reassure himself that everything belongs to him. You may want to consult a cat behaviorist to figure out what's causing his anxiety and how to resolve it.

he could be stessed, or his liter couldent be clean as much as he wants. remember, when you cetch him doing this do not yell. just pick him up and put him him his litter box. and dont leave clothes lying around. i learned that the hard way. lol
