|I don't think it's a UTI. Of course, I would watch him after your sister and her kids leave. But it sounds like territory marking to me. He obviously didn't like the "invaders" for whatever reason, and decided that they needed to know that this was his home. Possibly they smelled like other animals. Or maybe the movements of the children were so new to him (a four-year-old boy can be quite energetic) that he thought that at least the youngest one must have been another animal.
My advice would be to clean the smell out using an enzyme cleaner made for feline urine/feces. And watch him to be sure he doesn't do it again. If it continues, especially after your guests leave, I would take him in for a check-up. Until then, is there a way you can keep him in a separate room, away from your company, so that he can feel safe? You might also check into getting Feliway, a diffuser that emits a feline facial pherimone (sp?) that makes them feel more at ease, or use Rescue Remedy in his water.
