Orion is 7 years old, and has never peed anywhere but her litter box. This evening we caught her peeing on our dog's bed (we've had the dog for 3 years). I took the cover off the bed to wash it, and there were pee stains soaked through it- old ones. I just washed the dog bed 2 weeks ago, so it's been since then. Orion USED to poop in corners of the house when we were away, but stopped after DH rubbed her nose it it once. Is this a stress/defiance behavior, or something I should look into health wise?

Healthwise she's been puking up lots of hairballs lately, and having difficulty jumping up on the counter where her food is.
