She may not have been paying attention when her mom was teaching Litter Box Usage 101. So that means YOU need to step in. First, if she has not been to a vet, she needs to go, not only for a well-kitten exam and vaccinations but also to have her urine tested for a bladder infection. This will cause her to not use the box b/c she feels the box is causing her pain when she pees. Then, just like a puppy, put her in the box when she wakes up. Praise her for doing her job. Make sure her box is accessible but in a private area and easy enough for her to get in and out of. Clean up pee spots with an enzyme or oxy-based cleaner or have the rugs professionally cleaned. You can also use a cat-attract litter or a Feliway plug-in for her. And speak to the vet about her issues. They can offer more advice.
