|It's Stella. We have a Rubbermaid tote because our late great male cat peed standing up and tried to get it outside the regular pan. He had many health issues including kidney failure in later years.
A long time ago our person had a female cat who would pee in strange positions and places, and the vet told her that any time a cat varied from the normal position and spot, it was usually an indication that urination hurt and they were trying other ways to get it out that didn't hurt. Definitely check into a UTI or even crystals in the urine. Make sure there is plenty of water available so that the urine can be as dilute as possible. The cleaning may not work even if you remove all the smell, if the cat is peeing there to relieve the pain of peeing.
Does she clean herself off after going? Not cleaning the area after going could indicate pain there, too.
Since she had a litter before being spayed, is there any indication that she suffered some injury while giving birth? Human women can have problems with their peeing if the birth is large or difficult or if there was some kind of surgical intervention. Our sweet doggie had 8 puppies when she was only 7 mos old and got infected afterwards. She had problems with holding in her pee for the rest of her life even though she was spayed. Especially with holding it in--if she was happy to see you, she would drop some pee! Plus she would occasionally put one leg up to pee like a male dog.
Good luck, hope the kitty is not in any pain!
