|I agree with Ben, peeing not in the kitty box, especially when they were prev good about it, is usually an indication, one has a bladder issue or crystals. Another way you can tell is, one will get in and out of the kitty box alot, or sit there, and no pee, or sit there and cry. I would really try and watch them, and see if you see one of them doing this. Another thing you can do, is feel between their back legs, kinda near the tummy area, and see if you feel, what feels like a golf ball. That is their bladder, if you can feel something, it means they are blocked, and cannot pee, and, you have 12 hours to get them to a vet, or its too late.
Mine are taught to pee, when we get up in the morn, so they can pee before loaded for a show, so with Prowler, who is prone to crystals, I saw him pee a big spot, then get in and out of the kitty box, and just sit there, so I know he had a bladder issue, he went in that morn.
If you can, seperate the 4 males, 2 in each room, kinda like a process of elimination, when you find the room, where one may have peed, not in the box, then seperate those 2. Or you can take all 4 in, and ask for them to take a urine sample, they do it by inserting a needle into the bladder. Prowler has had it done a couple of times, they do not sedate them, and it only takes a min, he was fine, acted his normal crazy boy self right afterwards.
Best of luck, and please keep us updated, not, something to mess with.
