A. If you can rule out a urinary infection (most common cause in cat's urinating everywhere) the other option is something stressing your cat or your cat not been happy with your litter tray. Have you tried different types of litter, different locations for the tray or adding an extra tray for him to decide where is best to go to do his intimate things? There's different things you can try just use the tips I'm giving you and if doesn't stop ask me again.
