What should I do... he peed on my bed!
My cat is like 7 years old. When he was younger he refused to go in the litter box so he went just outside it. Lately he's been going on the floor in my and other people's rooms, peeing on anything soft. Today I found that he peed on my bed... I was told it's abandonment issues and that he's peeing because he's mad at me, because no matter how many boxes are out he won't go in them. HELP

If your cat is not neutered, even at the age of 7, it might not be a bad idea. At that time, also have him tested for a urinary tract infection. These burn when the cat pees, and he will avoid the box because he thinks the box is causing it. Since he's always had litter box issues, he may need a little re-training. Set out more than one box for him and keep it VERY clean. Why does he have abandonment issues? Stress is another reason cats stop using the box. He may need reassurances from his family that he's not abandoned. You may need to do a little research into what's been going on with him (and you) to see if anything might have affected him.
