Urinating Here and There

Stop inappropriate elimination by confining the new cat with diffuser and litterbox, then reintroducing to the resident cat.

Q. Our new, formerly stray cat is about 9 months old. He recently started attacking our other cat. Also about a week ago, my brother was playing with our other cat, and the new cat obviously did not approve. He found a convenient corner behind my brother and urinated. Then, the other day he went behind our Christmas tree and urinated. Please explain the peeing issue and the aggression toward my other cat. 

A. Neutering your new cat may help his unwanted behavior. Confine the kitten in an area with a feline pheromone diffuser and a litterbox. Also, begin a slow reintroduction of your new cat to your home and current feline resident.

My cat has a problem with urinating on the dining room table, kitchen counter, laundry room clothes, and our daughters bed covers. If we leave our bedroom doors open, she will go in and snoop around, until she finds someplace to urinate. Is this marking territory, or just an act of expressing her displeasure in something? Never really had a problem with this until we moved into our new home about 18 months ago. I don't know how to stop it, and we have put her outside for about 80% of the time now. She comes in to eat, and if we are in the house, we will leave her inside, since she never does the urinating if someone is in the house with her.

I have 2 cats and 1 kitten. the two cats moved in together & the kitten arrived 6 months later. They use the litter pan very well; however 1 of the cats is now wetting my bed at night while I am asleep. This has happened several nights in a row and last night he wet my bed 3 times. The cats are male and have been neutered. how can I stop this?
