Frazzled felines will sometimes relieve their anxiety by urinating, or marking (spraying) outside the cat litter box. Here are a few of the causes and the solutions to calm your kitty down.
Like humans, cats like their routines and daily habits. When something changes in their home, one way their anxiety may manifest itself is by urinating outside the cat litter box. With a little bit of work and patience, your kitty can be calmed down and get back to her good litter box habits.

Bluto, the bully kitty.
Some cats respond to being bulllied by a dominant cat by urinating or spraying outside the cat litter box. The solution is to figure who is who, and keep them separated. Please be aware the separation scheme you devise may have to be permanent to keep peace in the kitty (and human) household, and stop the cat urine odor damage.
