If your vet has ruled out any possible medical problems (urinary tract infection, etc.), then it could be a behavioral issue. Is there anything different going on in your household? A new addition (pet, baby)? Another possibility is that he is marking his territory if another animal has been in (or around) your home. The final possibility is that the litterbox is not being cleaned to his liking, or he needs a second litterbox to do his business in. Some cats prefer two separate litterboxes to do #1 and #2. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
